G-Force (2009)

G Fails to Hit the Spot

G-Force; the top team of genetically modified rodents and a fly find their unit is in danger of being terminated by the FBI. Fortunately their handler Ben (Zach Galifianakis) has become aware that millionaire businessman Saber (Bill Nighy) is up to something dastardly when it comes to all the white goods which his company builds and are in homes of families around the world and if G-Force can solve the case and stop Saber then their unit may be saved.

I could start this review re-mentioning that some times I wish I was younger so that I could watch a movie and be in the target audience age group but when it comes to "G-Force" I don't think it would have made much of a difference. Usually when I watch one of these new kid's movies there is something which entertains but right from the word go I found this tedious and a slog and I doubt children will find it much better. In fact whilst I am sure the idea was for this to entertain the 8 to 12 age group I reckon it will entertain those who are under 5 and will be amused by the colours and the talking rodents because they won't understand what is being said or what is going on.

Anyway what can I say about "G-Force" well talking rodents which are made to look realistic are not that entertaining or cute. Then what they actually do is not that entertaining either nor is what ever it is they mumble on about which is quite a bit and I doubt that much waffle is going to entertain young children that much. And on the subject of the waffle well there are some well known names in this movie but yet again I find myself in the situation that I wouldn't know who was doing the voices if I hadn't read so before hand.

What this all boils down to is that "G-Force" was a seriously disappointment and found it an energy sapping movie for grown ups, Maybe really young children will enjoy it because of the comedy of talking rodents and bright colours but the minute you understand what is going on the more boring it becomes.
