On December 17, 2009 Walt Disney Pictures released the movie G-Force on DVD. Originally released in theaters as a 3-D movie, it combines live action and animation. This G-rated comedy is fun family fare everyone will enjoy. Running time is 88 minutes.

I watched mine on Blu-ray. Picture quality and sound excelled. The only thing that would have made it better would have been to have it on 3-D. I enjoy Blu-ray because picture and sound quality excel and I get Exclusive To Disney Blu-ray features like

Moms, dads, teens, tweens, and toddlers will enjoy the story. Briefly, it goes like his. A specially trained force of guinea pigs have been trained by the government for espionage. A villain, Leonard Saber (Bill Nighy) has diabolically plotted a world takeover. It is up to squad leader Darren (Sam Rockwell) and his team to defeat him. He gets help from weapons expert Blaster (Tracy Morgan), martial arts pro Juarez (Penelope Cruz), and high-tech surveillance expert Mooch, a fly (Edwin Louis), and cyber intelligence speckles, a mole (Nicolas Cage).

Of course, G-Force succeeds.

Here’s a look at the trailer.

And here’s an interview with Agent Darwin.

LIFE AS A SPECIAL AGENT MUST BE PRETTY COOL, DARWIN…
It sure is! My life is one big adventure because I’m always preparing for top-secret missions and training with the team. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE G-FORCE TEAM?
G-Force is a top-secret government task unit. We may be guinea pigs, but we’re not ordinary. We’re special agents with years of intense training behind us.

HOW DID YOU GET INTO THIS ELITE GROUP OF ANIMALS?
We’re selected at birth and we have trained all of our lives. Our mission is classified – but when danger calls, they call us.

ARE YOU SURE YOU’RE NOT REGULAR GUINEA PIGS?
What are you trying to say? We’re not balls of fur waiting for our next pellet! We’re special agents. We’re G-Force, not G- Farce.

SORRY… JUST WANTED TO CHECK.
Civilians seem to have a tough time believing us, but it’s the truth.

SO YOU CAN HANDLE YOURSELF IN TIMES OF TROUBLE?
Sure thing! I’m a commando who just happens to be a guinea pig. Size doesn’t matter when you’re in the G-Force – especially when you are equipped with all these cool gadgets.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE GADGET?
I’m a big fan of the G900 Series infrared scope goggles. Not only do they have telescopic accuracy, but they are capable of transmitting digital video to any of the G900 receivers.

THAT SOUNDS VERY HIGH-TECH…
We’re talking cutting-edge equipment here! The goggles have face recognition capabilities and a laser focus. It’s an extremely efficient gadget that’s perfect for any undercover mission.

HOW CAN HUMANS HEAR WHAT YOU GUINEA PIGS SAY?
Each member of the G-Force team is equipped with a frequency encoder, which is a breakthrough in modern science that enables us to talk to humans.

WHAT EXACTLY IS A FREQUENCY ENCODER?
It’s a multilingual translator that converts guinea pig squeaks into human words. Each frequency encoder has a censor detector that beeps out swear words, as well as an auto- grammar correction device.

IS IT TRUE YOU’RE THE BRAINS BEHIND G-FORCE?
I like to think I’m the team leader, but we’ve also got a human called Ben who helps us on our missions. He’s there to make sure we don’t get into serious danger, but we can handle ourselves. I can lead the team into any situation. Just leave all the tactics to me!

IS IT ALSO TRUE YOU’RE A RELATIVE OF HURLEY?
Hurley seems to think we’re long-lost brothers, but I’m not so sure…

HAVEN’T YOU GOT THE SAME BIRTHMARK ON YOUR BOTTOMS?
You know what? Hurley kept pointing his butt at me, but I get scared that thing is going to go off. He’s got some serious gas issues! Hey, have you got many more questions for me? I’ve got a busy day ahead of me and I’m needed back at HQ shortly.

IN THAT CASE, WE’LL LEAVE YOU TO GET ON WITH YOUR WORK…
Thank you very much. We’ve got ‘Delta Formation’ training shortly and I don’t want to miss it. Stop, drop and roll, people… I’ll see you next time. Agent Darwin: over and out.
