A team of super-intelligent guinea pigs must prevent an evil genius taking over the world in Disney's latest kids' film.
With some impressive FX, a big-name voice cast and cuteas-a-button heroes, the Mouse House is no doubt rubbing its chunky white gloves together in anticipation of big box office in the school holidays.
Shame then that G-Force is so unrelentingly tedious. It might be a cheap way of babysitting the kids for an hour and a half, but it's a sure thing your young ones won't thank you for taking them. The pedestrian plot revolves around a squad of three guinea pigs and a mole who embark on a government mission to stop a shady businessman (Bill Nighy) from enslaving humanity using microchips he's installed in millions of household appliances.
The plot lurches joylessly from A to B, while the boredsounding voice cast - Nicolas Cage, Penlope Cruz, Sam Rockwell - might have delivered their dialogue down a phone line.
