Movie synopsis
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

"G-FORCE is your patented Bruckheimer loud and proud, precisely programmed, turbo-powered thrill ride."
Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen (07/23/2009)

"The film is non-stop, wall-to-wall madcap action..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (07/23/2009)

"A fur-covered A-TEAM for the kiddies, G-FORCE is heavy on splashy pyrotechnics....It moves at a rapid clip, and there are enough inside jokes for action fans to elicit laughs from adults."
Variety - Lael Loewenstein (07/23/2009)

3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he often hilarious G-FORCE has it all: action, laughs and heart....Rocket assists and motorized exercise balls are hilariously employed and the use of 3D effects hit just the right note."
Box Office - Pete Hammond (07/24/2009)

3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his Jerry Bruckheimer production is a surprisingly light-footed caper for cinema's reigning king of bombast."
Total Film - Neil Smith (07/30/2009)

Jerry Bruckheimer's First 3D Film. G is for Grand!

This family adventure by producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean), isn't at all a bad film by any stretch of the means and somehow works as a fun kids film. However, an old and formulaic plot means the movie is no masterpiece to be watched more than once. Catering to the children seems to be the idea here, but the more the adults take there children to these types of films, the more the children get spoiled and bored for something much more meaningful.

The story-line follows a specially trained team of secret agent guinea pigs, along with a super smart mole (voiced by Nicholas Cage), that work for the US government. Their mission is to stop an evil billionaire (Bill Nighy), who manufactures home appliances, from taking over the world through a microchip he is planting within them.

Much attention has been paid to making this a top-notch production which Jerry Bruckheimer has always seemed to do. The CGI animation is top-notch. The animals look very realistic and, after a few minutes, you forget they're not real. There is an inherent cuteness factor in them, and just like last year's Alvin and the Chipmunks, Bruckheimer knows that this will be the biggest draw for kids and their parents. There are plenty of jokes to keep a smile on your face, although the fart jokes are being used a bit too much these days and really show poor taste in the light of Walt Disney Studios.

But that brings me to the story. How many times have you heard this? "Evil genius wants to take over the world and only the unlikeliest of heroes can save us. Probably too many to count, I can imagine! G-Force fits right into this category. The plot is exhausting and doesn't attempt to bring anything new to the table. There are subplots strangely similar to last year's Bolt, and the finale has an uncanny resemblance to Transformers. Aside from being predictable from the very start, the biggest problem here comes out in the final reels – the villain's motivations are laughably ridiculous. As if it wasn't hard enough to stomach the improbability in an evil billionaire's plan to take over the world by installing timed microchips in every home appliance he manufactures, the final act tries to implement a twist so ridiculous and far-fetched that one wonders what was going on in their minds when coming up with it. Sure, kids will chew it up, but adults are sure to gasp at the screen at the stupidity of it all. Still, lessons are learned and there's a bit of emotional quotient towards the end that partially saves the day.

Another problem are the action scenes. There are too many of them, and most of them are uninspiring. The movie opens with a 10 minute long covert operation that gets tiring a quarter of the way through. Every other ten minutes or so comes another chase or mission that only serves as eye-candy and gets monotonous and unfocused, especially in the finale. The special effects are great, but what's the need for exploding cars and buildings in a kid's movie?

The voice acting is impressive. Sam Rockwell, Penelope Cruz, and Nicolas Cage is Speckles, the mole. They all do a great job helping bring their characters to life. Bill Night plays a stock villain with no character development or motivation, and it comes across slightly badly. Zach Galifianakis impresses as the leader of the team, but Will Arnett is wasted in a small and too serious of a role for a comedian of his caliber.

Fun for the entire family, not just for kids

Bill Nighy and Will Arnett star in this combination animation / live action movie about a group of secret agent hamsters who set out to save the world.

The action in this is great and it is so funny.

The entire family will enjoy this movie.

Best of all it is available at a variety of different prices to fit anyones budget.

Be sure you watch this one with your kids or grandkids, its well worth it.

Cute movie

Bought it for my 2 year old son who loves the chipmunk movies, and since this movie seemed similar (He really loves movies that mix animation and people), I decided to see if he would like this movie. This is a cute movie, wasn't too scary for him as he laughed a lot at the animals. Also didnt drive me nuts or bore me like some of the things he insists on watching over and over. All in all, very cute family movie that is well animated and action packed. I would buy again but my son still picks the chipmunks more often.

G-Force blu-ray disc

family film from Disney. A scientist trains guinea pigs to become agents for the government. The plot is a typical Disney film for children. The guinea pigs save the day in the end,as they find that they have become a family.
