Director: Hoyt Yeatman

Hoyt Yeatman 's the visual effects maker in such blockbuster movies as "The Abyss," "Con Air," "The Rock" and "Armageddon" has for the second time decided to try himself out as a director. What came as a result is called "G-Force," a comedy with plenty of special effects, but with a great lack of real jokes.

Despite the fact that the makers managed to involve a crew, which can only be compared to a starry sky in the middle of August, the film somehow remained unspectacular and unable to present any sort of inordinate feature. The rather plain plot tells us about a group of guinea pigs on the FBI's secret service. And although 3D animated rodents look incredibly realistic there's still nothing funny about them.

Given their voices by such Hollywood A-list stars as Sam Rockwell, NicholasCage and Penelope Cruz,
to name a few, the characters were presented poorly, probably not because of the lack of acting talent, but, in this case, because of the definitely sloppy work of everyoneelse who was involved in
the writing of the script.

The dramatic finale (eventually, the guinea pigs save the world), which is absolutely without need, added to this "movie cocktail," makes you completely regret your wasted one and ahalf hours; and even the
3D-IMAX version of the film doesn't fix things.
