Unbeknownst to the common man, the government has created a secret operations unit of spies that are not human, but in fact animals given translators that turn their thoughts into human words so they can communicate with people. This unit is called G-Force, and it's led by a guinea pig named Darwin. Darwin's cohorts are also guinea pigs-- a sassy violent female named Juarez, and a goofy weapons specialist guinea pig named Blaster. They are sent on a mission to spy on Saber, the CEO of a tech company that makes kitchen appliances. Although they seem to uncover some intel on a dastardly plot, it appears to be nothing notable to their superiors. This leads to the feds disbanding the G-Force, sending the guinea pigs to a pet shop to be sold with the rest of the pets. When Darwin is sold to a family, he inspects a coffee maker made by Saber's company and is horrified when it comes to life as a vicious fighting robot. They are preparing to try to take down Saber before any of his machines can cause destruction, but the FBI puts out a "Wanted Dead or Alive" bounty of the heads of these guinea pigs. They eventually learn that the mastermind behind this scheme isn't Saber at all, but in fact is Speckles, a mole who was a member of G-Force until he faked his own death. Without warning, Speckles activates a program that combines all of the Saber machines in the area into one massive robot, formed from coffee machines, toasters, and the like. This giant appliance robot is bent on destruction, and only the G-Force have the capacity to stop it.

Best part of story, including ending:
This movie is remarkably boring. One would think with all of the action and all of the special effects, it would generate some interest, but one would be mistaken.
Best scene in story:
When in the pet shop, Darwin meets Hurley, a stupid guinea pig who hasn't been trained as a spy. This smart pet talking to the dumb one provides some pleasant initial situational comedy.
Opinion about the main character:
Darwin doesn't really have a personality, outside of being a talking animal with spy skills. Guinea pigs should be more exciting with those added abilities, but those don't give him personality.
