Overall Rating: 8
Funny cute movie about believing in oneself and family. The high concept is easiest to explain through a 30 rock reference: it was like watching Tracy Morgan's latest move, Fat Bitch meets Who Dat Ninja but with guinea pigs. A great film for the family to watch that will not only enteratin the kids but it also has good edifying messages in it without being preachy.
G-Force is recommended for the theater, it does benefit from the big screen atmosphere. This is a kids movie. When I use that term here I'm referring to how satisfying / filling the movie is for an adult to watch like the difference in eating a kids platter verses eating an adult platter at a restaurant. There have been have been many movies come out in the last decade that are "kids movies" but are also great for adults too, for instance Ratatouille and The Incredibles. G-Force is more focused on children humor and light on any substance but it is still a good movie.

- An amazing cast: Nicolas Cage, Penélope Cruz, Steve Buscemi, Tracy Morgan, Will Arnett, Bill Nighy, Zach Galifianakis
- Giant killer robots!!!!
- The jokes are funny
- The animated hair physics looks good
- Good messages in the movie: value of family, believing in oneself, the wrongs of revenge and the harm it causes to the ones you love.
Dislikes / Concerns
- Light on substance. Even though it tackles good messages it is not a filling for an adult to watch as The Incredibles or Ratatouille would be.
