Pros: No nudity and no bad language.

Cons: Will not interest the adults.

The Bottom Line:

If you don't expect too much then take your kid to see this one. They will enjoy it even if you don't.



Here we go again, another movie that is funnier on the advertising ads rather than at the theatre. Just like all of the other movie goers I to took my daughter to see the loveable spying and super-powered pigs. I usually do not go to the show that much just for this reason. Even though I thought that this movie needed a lot to be desired my daughter loved it. This was a real yawner for all of the adults that had to sit through this, what we won’t do for our kids. I refused to pay extra money for those one time use 3-D glasses, so we went to the regular showing.

Though this movie was very entertaining in your home on your TV set, it falls short at the show.  If my daughter were the one rating this she would give it five stars but I can only give it 2 stars. There is nothing that will stop me from walking out of this movie except for the smile that this movie put on her face. I did expect more out of Disney and the other people involved in the making of this movie. When I think of Disney you think of all of the magical films that they have made, this one will only remain in the minds of all children.

Even though this movie falls short the actors that have to do the voice interpretation do an excellent job along with all of the real acting, such as; Bill Nighty, Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Kelli Garner,Tyler Patrick Jones, Piper Mackenzie Harris, Gabriel Casseus, Jack Conley, Niecy Nash, Justin Mentell, Sam Rockwell, Jon Favreau, Penelope Cruz, and Tracy Morgan. The one that disappointed me the most, was the voice of Nicholas Cage, you could not even tell that, that was him and you would have thought that he might have had a lot bigger part in this movie.

This movie is rated pg and will last 90 minutes. I can  not say if this would have been better if we would went and seen it with the 3-D affects but as for the regular show this was a real yawner. They do try and put some action in this one by throwing a car chase scene in and having a deranged special agent trying to get back all if the super G-pigs. Do not get your hopes up, this will only make your kids smile, all of the adults that I saw in the show said the same thing and that was they should have went and seen Harry Potter.

I know that this was supposed to be a movie for the kids, but I thought that even though this is for the kids they could have made it a little more excitable for the ones paying for it. Even though I thought that this was a yawner my daughter did not, and that is what counts in this situation. She would rate this movis 5 out of 5 stars, but I can only give this 2 stars.

Odd and Campy and That's the Good News
   G-Force is definitely one of those films that’s hard to categorize.  In a way it reminds of many of Jerry Bruckheimer’s works in that it’s supposed to be an adventure flick with a bit of comedy but it somehow feels askew (Pirates of the Caribbean anyone?).  All of that feeling transfers here but the difference is that this one is clearly targeted toward an even younger demographic which is bad for two reasons: 1) It isn’t bright and crisp like a kids’ …

Guinea pig secret agents were never so much fun to watch in action.

Very cute, as most talking animal movies are! This was a nice action flick as well, and my son really enjoyed it. Appealed more to him then his 3 year old sister.

About this movie

Wiki

G-Forcejust might be the best Jerry Bruckheimer action film in many a moon. The film is exuberant, and its premise--don't thinkbigfor an animated caper film, thinksmall--brilliantly upends the more-bigger-faster trope of American action films… with cute, little, furry guinea pigs.

Bruckheimer, the action genius behind the likes of the Pirates of the Caribbean, Con Air, The Rock, Armageddon, and many more, here teams with visual effects maestro Hoyt Yeatman, who writes and directs. The combo is potent, and the fact that they streamed their blow-'em-up vision through a film about tiny rodents saving the world makes the whole confection a hilarious family-friendly experience as well as a satisfying action adventure. The premise isn't earth-shattering: oddball, unexpected heroes are called on to save the day (Men in Black, Underdog, etc.). But the lowly guinea pig has been long overdue to get its moment in the spotlight. And now the free world knows whom it can really trust. The film mixes the animated heroes with real-life actors, including the sardonic British character actor Bill Nighy, who plays an evil mogul out to take over and/or destroy the world. The U.S. government, it turns out, has been nurturing a special squad for occasions just such as this. It's just that it's been nurturing them in small pens with wood shavings on the floor and running wheels for exercise. Will Arnett, deadpan and spot-on, plays the human agent who has the unenviable ...
