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.
Theater or Renter: July 2009 includes 5 SF movies Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G-Force, Orphan, Aliens in the Attic,. Will we watch? Will we rent? or do we even care?
Rules of the Game: Watch the trailers. Rate the Trailer. Then share with us your comments: does the movie, it’s trailer and buzz make you want to watch it in the theater, rent it, or not interested at all, and why?
