: World War Z is a real surprise. The movie’s release was preceded by tales of extensive script-whacking and panicky reshooting. But however desperate these measures may have been, they now seem justified – the picture flows smoothly from one sensational set-piece sequence to the next; it’s unremittingly tense and often very scary. It is a full-on zombie movie, but one that relies less on the usual gut-slurping gore and more on the gathering dread of a plausible apocalypse for its horrifying effect. It rises above its genre.

: There have also been early grumblings about the film’s lack of strict fidelity to its source, the 2006 novel by Max Brooks. But this was unavoidable. The book is constructed as a long series of interviews with survivors of a worldwide zombie plague that nearly wiped out human life. There is no central protagonist to provide a narrative through-line, which is something a big, mainstream movie naturally requires. (The picture reportedly cost $200-million or more to make.) There was also no way to cram in all of the book’s themes of cultural and governmental insufficiency in a way that a mass audience would be willing to sit through. (WWZ runs just under two hours – three cheers.)

: And so now we have a hero and a more concise story. The movie’s focus is on Gerry Lane (effortlessly charismatic Brad Pitt), a former United Nations human-rights investigator who has thrown aside his career as a traveler through the world’s hell holes in favor of a more gratifying life in Philadelphia with his wife Karin (Mireille Enos, of the AMC series The Killing) and their two small daughters (Sterling Jerins and Abigail Hargrove). Director Marc Forster quickly sketches Gerry’s warm domestic contentment with an opening scene in the family kitchen. But then the movie gets right down to business. Gerry is driving Karin and the girls through town when traffic suddenly comes to a halt. There’s an explosion down the street, and within moments a stream of terrified people is coursing through the lanes of idling cars. We don’t see the cause of this chaos very clearly at first. Then Gerry observes a man being attacked by a rampaging figure; the man falls to the ground, twitches and twists, then rises to his feet, dead but hideously alive. His transformation, Gerry coolly notes, took exactly 12 seconds.

: This cleanly designed sequence effectively stokes our sense of foreboding. If human beings can be so quickly converted into flesh-rending monsters that are largely impervious to gunfire (unless the bullets are precisely aimed at their heads), then the customary tactic of deploying large groups of military defenders against them can only serve to increase their numbers exponentially. We immediately understand the awful implications, and fear the very worst.

: Fleeing Philadelphia, Gerry gets a call on his phone from his old UN boss, Thierry (Fana Mokoena), who’s in a helicopter over Manhattan, which is also being overrun. Thierry is on his way to an aircraft carrier 200 miles off the coast. He needs Gerry back in service to track down the source of this gruesome epidemic – to determine the identity of Patient Zero. He tells Gerry to make his way to a certain apartment building in Newark, where a helicopter will pick him up and ferry him and his family to safety aboard the ship, which is now a floating command center.

: In Turbo we are introduced to Theo (voiced by Ryan Reynolds): an ordinary garden snail with an uncommon desire to go fast. Theo – who prefers to be called Turbo – spends his nights re-watching IndyCar race footage and interviews with his personal hero the champion car driver Guy Gagné (Bill Hader). Unfortunately Theo’s racing fascination puts him at odds with his slow-moving peers including his disapproving and practical-minded brother Chet (Paul Giamatti).

: Theo’s failed attempt to outrace a lawn mower (in order to reach a ripe tomato first) combined with his old TV set being accidentally broken leaves him feeling downtrodden. He wanders away from home one night to the local highway where a series of events result in Theo being sucked into the supercharger of an underground drag racer. Our shelled protagonist emerges with newfound incredible speed and car like characteristics (ex. his eyes work like headlights) thanks to his DNA being infused with nitrous oxide.

: On the whole Turbo is a harmless if also trite and thinly-drawn – underdog story featuring an unconventional protagonist and far-fetched premise driven by cartoon logic. The film includes some well-executed racing sequences (distinguished by the digital camera’s snail POV) but the script’s flat approach to characterization and simple yet unchallenging life lessons inherent to the story leaves something to be desired. Turbo in other words isn’t a bad movie to show your kids but there are much better options currently in theaters – and frankly they’ll probably enjoy the alternatives more anyway.

: Turbo was produced by DreamWorks and marks the feature-length directorial debut for David Soren (a story artist on Shrek and Over the Hedge) who co-wrote the screenplay with Darren Lemke and Robert D. Siegel The Wrestler while Nicholas Stoller (The Muppets) provided additional story material. Sadly despite the involvement of people like Siegel and Stoller – whose past script work has explored more poignant territory – Turbo offers nothing more thoughtful than a basic message about never abandoning your dreams (despite an occasional scene that teases something deeper before quickly being dropped).

: Problem is Turbo and his human foil Tito (Michael Peña) a taco seller with lofty ambitions who assists Turbo to become a racing star ultimately accomplish their goals thanks to a relentless belief in themselves and guidance by others not so much personal growth or hard work. When you look closer the film seems to offer mixed messages in part because it skips on exploring the complex realities of dreams and goals in a way that younger audiences can understand (see Monsters University for a recent example of this). As a result the story and main characters’ arcs feel a bit flat.
