There are movies designed for both adults and kids. Then there are the ones for kids alone and G-Force certainly falls into that basket. I have to admit I was impressed by the 3D – It added far more interest to the movie for me. At first I was disappointed that the glasses didn't fit the three year old, but after having a few freaky “oh, that was close” moments, I was pleased she wasn't wearing them.
My girls felt it was something boys would prefer. There were a few girls behind me who said it was way too scary but mine are pretty sensitive and none of them flinched so I think that puts it in the safe zone. G-Force is a fun, cute, light-hearted movie starring rodents. It’s good for kids but not so great for adults.
I liked the movie but in 3D it can feel a little surprising as everything comes at you. I think it's better for kids who don't mind scary movies as there are some bits that were a little freaky. My favourite part was when the rodents got adopted from the pet shop.
I liked how the rodents could talk and they always had a plan to escape. When two of them rode a skateboard it was especially funny. The 3D glasses made it feel like it was very close to me. I am not too sure I liked that as it made it a bit scarier. But the movie was good.
