Film / G Force

G-Force is a 2009 CGI/live action film produced by Jerry Bruckheimer for Walt Disney Pictures in Disney Digital 3-D. Written by Cormac and Marianne Wibberley (credited as "The Wibberleys"), the film is the directorial debut of Hoyt Yeatman.

The film revolves around a special FBI organization of trained secret agent animals, equipped with advanced tools including an advanced earpiece that allows the mammalian members to talk to humans. The movie follows an attempt by corrupt officials to remove the G-Force and the groups attempts to survive and reconnect to take them down.

Not to be confused with G-Force: Guardians of Space, the second American adaptation of the classic anime Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.


Tropes:

  • Animal Espionage: The entire premise, which features guinea pigs as spies.
  • Artistic License Animal Care: Guinea Pigs do not eat cake - their diet is primarily fresh vegetables, pellets and alfalfa (much like how one would feed a rabbit). Of course they don't talk or stand on their hind legs, too but there you go.
  • Artistic License Biology: Guinea Pigs do not eat cake - their diet is primarily fresh vegetables, pellets and alfalfa (much like how one would feed a rabbit). Of course they don't talk or stand on their hind legs, too but there you go.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: The final battle against appliances.
  • Badass Adorable: Darwin, Blaster and Juarez. Ditto for Speckles.
  • Berserk Button
    Juarez: You try to put a bow on me, you gonna lose a finger.
  • Bilingual Bonus: "Yanshu is the Chinese word for mole!"
  • Big Eater: Hurley
  • The Calls Are Coming from Inside the House: It turns out the mysterious business partner Sabre has been working with was not in China, but in his basement all along.
  • Dance Party Ending
  • Disney Death: Hurley and Speckles
  • Easily Forgiven: Speckles.
  • Establishing Character Moment: The first thing Hurley does is fart very loudly while he's sleeping, just to let you know where all the fart jokes will come from.
  • Farts on Fire: Blaster sets one of Hurley's farts ablaze while they're stuck in the pet shop.
  • Five-Temperament Ensemble: Darwin (choleric), Mooch (melancholic), Hurley (phlegmatic), Blaster (sanguine), and Juarez (leukine).
  • Four Legs Good, Two Legs Better
  • Foreshadowing:
    Speckles: I'm a mole. I got a thing for worms.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: Speckles' family was killed by humans, his father asks him to do the same if he gets the chance, and he does...until he sees that the 2 humans who adopted and cared for him were in the path of his vengeance.
  • Hive Mind: The mice.
  • Instant Awesome, Just Add Mecha: During the climax.
  • Karma Houdini: The teenage boy. He flings a guinea pig across the pet shop and makes him do stunts in a car. The only comeuppance he gets is his guinea pig runs (or drives) away.
  • Like Reality Unless Noted: A tech has been developed the proves animals sentience, yet no one has raised word in animal rights groups and pet stores are still in business. Not even the guinea pigs seem interested in getting word out.
  • Meganekko: Marcie
  • My God, What Have I Done?: by Speckles.
  • The Mole: Speckles the mole was secretly helping Leonard Saber to make his Saber appliances (using audio-only communication and a voice modifier). Blaster even says "I can't believe the mole... was 'The Mole'!"
  • Reassigned to Antarctica
  • Reed Richards Is Useless: They developed a technology that allows animals to talk and proves they are sentient, and all they do is teach them how to be secret agents.
    • Possibly subverted, for most of the film their organization is considered a joke, they get recognition in the end by the freaking president, but what happens after that we don't know, especially since the president says the details of their group is still coming to light.
  • The Reliable One: Mooch. Serves as a distraction on their missions, flies back to headquarters to get back in contact with Ben, serves as lookout when the team is being pursued, accompanies Darwin and provides live footage of Speckle's confession, and catches the USB at the climax. He may not talk, but the team sure as hell wouldn't get a thing done without him.

  • Spicy Latina: Juarez.
  • Talking Animal

  • The Tease: Juarez to Darwin and Blaster. When Darwin complains about her keeping them in confusion and desparation, she replies that is exactly how she likes it.
  • Title Confusion: After the initial rumors based on the film's title, many were disappointed that this wasn't a Battle of the Planets / Science Ninja Team Gatchaman adaptation.
