Overview

Two time Oscar-winning visual effects artist Hoyt Yeatman makes his feature directorial debut with this Jerry Bruckheimer-produced family film following a group of highly trained guinea pigs on their mission to prevent an evil billionaire from taking over the world. Beginning in the Civil War -- when carrier pigeons delivered messages from the front lines -- the American government has been covertly training animals to work in espionage. The latest government program is a clandestine espionage team known as "G-Force," which includes a team of ultra-intelligent guinea pigs who share 98.7 percent of their DNA with humans. Comprised of unpredictable weapons expert Blaster voice of Tracy Morgan, alluring martial arts expert Juarez voice of Penélope Cruz, stealthy reconnaissance expert Mooch, and a star-nosed mole named Speckles voice of Nicolas Cage, who specializes in computers, this crack team of agents is fronted by heroic squad leader Darwin voice of Sam Rockwell. When a deranged billionaire hatches a plan to control the entire planet through common household appliances, the G-Force leaps into action on a mission to ensure that he does not succeed.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Produced by action-meister Jerry Bruckheimer for Disney, G-Force has all the crazy chases and daredevil stunts of his typical films National Treasure, Bad Boys, etc., but they've been scaled down to be more kid-friendly. The setup involves a scientist Zach Galifianakis, who has spent grant money from the Department of Homeland Security training animals into an elite special-forces unit. The trio of guinea pigs that form the heart of the crew consist of the leader, Darwin voiced by Sam Rockwell; the flirty but tough Juarez Penélope Cruz; and the fearless, crazy Blaster a perfectly cast Tracy Morgan. All three work closely with a tech-whiz mole named Speckles voiced by Bruckheimer regular Nicolas Cage. The team must stop a home appliance mogul Bill Nighy from turning his products into a robot army that will take over the world, all while they're being hunted by an FBI agent Will Arnett who wants the G-Force program shut down. As is often the case with Jerry Bruckheimer productions, the story is far less important than the spectacle, and while "spectacle" in one of his films usually means lots of explosions and cars flying through the air, G-Force is unique for having cute talking animals -- rather than muscle-bound alpha males -- leaping away in slow-motion from the fireballs. The action sequences aren't particularly memorable, but they're entirely competent and kids will certainly get a kick out of them. There's a paint-by-numbers moral about family that runs through the movie, but it's there more for parents than for anyone else -- children aren't going to expect or want to learn anything from a movie where a furry critter rides inside a remote-control car as it jumps over a line of toy trucks. Your ability to enjoy G-Force will correlate directly with how funny you find the idea of guinea pigs as action heroes, meaning the movie's core audience and a handful of adults will have a fun time, but it's going to seem awfully standard to parents who are more than familiar with the Bruckheimer formula.

    Not as stupid as I expected

    I expected this movie to bore me to tears & numb my brain, but it was much better than I expected. I liked the plot lines of making your own family (verses the one you're born into) & always being there to help your friends. My boys (age 3) absolutely love this movie, even though it's not a cartoon! I'd recommend this for someone with kids.

    Its alright, not for me.

    Personally not a favorite movie of mine, it was alright, not the best. My friends and family said they loved it and would watch it like fifty times, but it wasn't my type of movie. It could have a better story line and better characters. The whole talking guinea pig thing made me feel like I was younger. It's more of a child's movie then a teen or adult movie. If you're a mother in need for a movie to make the kids sit still, this is the movie for you, if you're a teen looking for something awesome to watch or an adult look for something else. It's not the best.sorry.
