In this computer animated family comedy, a misfit snail with a need for speed strives to earn a slot in the Indy 500. Turbo (voice of Ryan Reynolds) may live life at a
snail's pace, but his dreams charge along at light speed. Whenever Turbo
closes his eyes, he sees himself zooming past the checkered flag at the
Indianapolis 500, and leaving all of his competitors in the dust.
Unfortunately for Turbo, all of his fellow snails, including his
brother Chet (Paul Giamatti) seem to savor the slow life. Then, one
day, it happens: Turbo is methodically making his way across a freeway
overpass when he is suddenly sucked into the intake valve of a speeding
muscle car. His molecular structure has been altered by the volatile nitrous
oxide that fuels the car.
Suddenly Turbo is able to travel at speeds up
to 200 miles per hour. In the midst of mastering his newfound
ability, Turbo and Chet are unexpectedly captured by Tito (Michael
Peña). a California taco-stand proprietor who organizes snail races on
the side. Tito quickly takes his two newest racers to Starlight Plaza,
where all of the speed-freak snails await their next run on the track.
It's there that Turbo makes some colorful new friends, and learns to
have some fun while trash-talking the competition.
But Turbo's adventure is
far from over, and by the time he realizes that his dreams are
finally within reach, his newfound family will be right there to cheer
him past the finish line. Samuel L. Jackson, Luis Guzman, Bill Hader,
and Snoop Dogg also lend their voices to this colorful adventure.
