G-Force (2009, USA) C-88m. *** D: Hoyt Yeatman. Starring Bill Nighy, Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Kelli Garner, and the voices of Nicolas Cage, Sam Rockwell, Jon Favreau, Penélope Cruz, Steve Buscemi. The exact opposite of Pixar's UP (2009), a razzle-dazzle action adventure about a crew of guinea pig secret agents, who inflitrate Nighy's mansion to prove he's plotting to rule the world with an army of household appliances. Too bad they get ousted and must use their skills in real life. Funny, exciting nonsense, but the 3D effects are astounding - beating UP (2009) easily. Without 3D the film would probably only rate **.
