Just in case you're wondering if this is the same kind of animal rescue movie that you're used to watching, then the answer is yes - and the point in question is now whether it's well made and whether it puts its best foot forward to audiences. Disney's latest "G-Force" adventure is a simple light-hearted one but at the same time difficult to forget. It takes you on an exciting chase-after-chase and explosion-after-explosion kind of 3-D thrill.
"G-Force" is packed with punchy lines and funny jokes but don't expect a deep, profound lesson in life or anything like that. This ride is one to have with your ten-and-below kids. The guinea pigs are an awesome lot as they breathe life into the plot, making even a nine-inch superhero stand out.
Effects-wise, the picture does have plenty of stunning and beautifully crafted scenes. Colours play an important factor in a 3-D animation and the movie makers definitely nailed it this time around. You might take a while for your eyes to adjust to the screen but soon you'll be ready for action. There are things happening at every corner of the screen!
However, as the story develops, the cute characters in the story fail to make a long lasting impression. There's a lot of a talk and then we get plunged into action - this process repeats itself one too many times. When that happens, audiences will find themselves disengaged and less attracted to the the movie. While the voice talents sound like they were having fun, it's a sad case that people may not be able to share in a great deal of that excitement.
Disney's trying to make the world's heroes tinier and tinier but let's hope the appeal don't disappear altogether.Cinema Online, 15 September 2009
