The Best Animated Film of 2013 | Shortlist No 10 – Turbo

Turbo Ì?å© 2013 DreamWorks Animation LLC. All Rights ReservedWe want you to tell us which was 2013′s best animated film – and help decide the winner of the Animation category in this year’s Richard Attenborough Film Awards. You can cast your vote on the Movie Preview Network website but to help you make up your mind we’re posting brief reviews of the 10 nominated films. Last, but not necessarily least, is Turbo.

Ever wondered what would happen if a snail entered the Indy 500 car race? Well, if your answer was ‘he’d probably get squished ‘ think again, because this turbo-charged cartoon feature comes up with an entirely different scenario that involves lots of zippy car-snail-racing action, a fabulous star-studded voice cast – topped by Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti and Maya Rudolph – and some funny comedy at the expense of that fairly ridiculous premise. Plus no snails were harmed in the making of this motion picture. Honest.

Here’s the shortlist, with our potted intros to jog your memory.
