WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
A team of super spy guinea pigs thwart a diabolical arms dealer (Bill Nighy), aiming to take over the world.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
G-FORCE is one of those films that you just can't believe actually exists. C'mon- a 3D action flick about super-powered talking guinea pigs, produced by no less than Jerry Bruckheimer. Really?

Even as a film directed towards kids, G-FORCE is pretty damn stupid. Heck, the squad of guinea pigs even features all the stereotypes of the genre. We get the straight-arrow leader (Sam Rockwell), the jive talkin' black dude/ comic relief (Tracy Morgan), the nerdy gadget guy (Nicolas Cage- who uses his PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED voice for the role), and, of course- the sexy latina love interest (Penelope Cruz). The only thing this film was missing is a hip hop soundtrack. Oh wait, it has that too (with not one, but two Black Eye Peas tracks)!

The only really impressive thing about G-FORCE is the fact that it was able to attract so much talent in front of the camera. The voices are one thing, as Cage & Co., don't actually have to show their faces, but actors like Bill Nighy, Will Arnett, and even Zach Galifianakis, aren't as lucky.

For those hoping Galifianakis might bring a little comic spark to the film- you better look elsewhere, as he sleepwalks through the role. BETWEEN TWO FERNS this is not.

THE EXTRAS
The big bonus here is the Cine-Explore mode which is a PiP track with director Hoyt Yataman, with snippets featuring the CGI Guinea Pig stars, which the young one might like.

Next up, a bunch of behind the scenes featurettes, including Inside the Animation Lab , and Bruckheimer Animated , which looks at the CGI FX. Next, G-Force Mastermind which reveals the director's five year old came up with the idea for the film (it shows). Kids will enjoy the next featurette, Blaster's Boot Camp , which features Tracy Morgan's character going over some of the gadgets used in the film. Finally, some deleted scenes , bloopers , music videos , and a separate DVD version of the film, as well as a digital copy .
FINAL DIAGNOSIS
Even for a kiddie flick, G-FORCE is pretty lame, although perhaps VERY young viewers may enjoy it somewhat. Everyone else should skip it.
