YMMV / Turbo

Go To

For the animated film

  • Awesome Music: Snoop Dogg's "Let The Bass Go" during the credits.
  • Cliché Storm: The protagonist who dreams of something more out of life and so society puts him down because he dared to be different.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: White Shadoooooww......
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The plot of the movie is similar to that of a Cyanide & Happiness short where a man develops Super Speed before trying to race in the Indy 500.
    • Sonic the Hedgehog inspired this film. Enough said.
    • A villain in Wreck-It Ralph is named Turbo... who is a racer and has similar ambitions to Turbo. They're both portrayed as protagonists in from where they're from. Turbo is the hero in his Turbo Time game, while he's the main villain of the movie. As an added bonus, Sonic the Hedgehog, who inspired this film, appeared in Wreck-It Ralph.
      • Speaking of Sonic, it was eventually announced in 2017 that the movie adaptation of the franchise will be produced by Tim Miller, the director of Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool (2016).
      • And it gets better: Ben Schwartz, aka Skidmark, will be voicing Sonic.

  • Moral Event Horizon: Gagne crosses it when he actually tries to kill Turbo during the race.
  • Memetic Mutation: "I wish I was fast."
  • Nightmare Fuel: The "Shell Crusher" realistically is just a cruel kid on a tricycle. But what makes him dangerous is his determination to squish Theo even after he quickly finds out that Theo has Super Speed.
  • So Okay, It's Average: This is what the general response from critics seems to be. They see it as a fairly paint-by-numbers animated kids' movie, but also think that it's charming enough to be enjoyable with a welcome and overdue focus on the Latin American community with the human characters.
