Movie review : G-Force

RunPee - PeeTimes link
G-Force

In case you didn’t know, G-Force is 3-D movier for young kids. There were many kids in the audience in the 4-7 age ranges. The main reason I say it’s a young kids movie is that there are a lot of short scenes and every 3rd scene – at least – involves some sort of action. Something to keep the kids from losing focus.

I did notice that the kids in the theater laughed quite a few times. And I saw the 3D version which seemed very appealing to them. A handful of times you could hear them gasp as something seemed to leap out of the screen.

So it’s a safe bet that most young children will enjoy this. I wouldn’t push this off on children getting into their early teens, though.

As for adults, well… it didn’t suck. But what many good writers are able to do is intersperse adult humor into a kids film that the kids won’t be able to get. Usually by quoting something in past/pop culture, or paying homage to other movies. There was just a tiny bit of that here and it just wasn’t that well done.

    I’m going to be honest here: This movie was awful. Even for kids. It may be because I didn’t see it in 3D, but the movie had absolutely no magic. Had there not been adorable guinea pigs running around on the screen, I probably would’ve left. Just my opinion.

      @Jason, I wouldn’t say it’s awful. I’m sure that a lot of kids really liked it. But it isn’t remotely in the same category as The Incredibles, Toy Story, etc.

    I just saw Wall-E yesterday. Now *that’s* a movie for all ages. 🙂 Plus it wins an award by being the first movie on the site with a PeeTime. 🙂

    I agree, Wall-E wins as by far the best movie for all ages. But, polyGeek, I have to be honest. When you don’t see it in 3D, there’s no magic for the kids, and definitely none for the parents. The only times I laughed in the movie when was my friend accidentally chucked her purse across the room.

    Okay, so I’m getting off-topic. What I’m trying to say is that I’m pretty sure no one laughed when I saw the movie. Not even kids. Granted, an old lady laughed a few times, but other than that, the laughter was small or nonexistent.
