Review of Planes: Fire and Rescue

Posted on
Planes: Fire and Rescue," which opens in theaters this weekend, helps resuscitate the "Cars"-inspired franchise of animated movies that started last year with "Planes." The biggest difference is that the sequel has an original story line. Unlike "Planes," the movie does not position its lead character, Dusty Crophopper (voiced by Dane Cook), to again rehash the popular racing saga of Lightning McQueen. When my family saw that movie last year, most of us agreed it felt tired and predictable -- obviously, with good reason.

Review: Disney’s ‘Planes’ movie doesn’t really get off the ground

Posted on
Disney's animated "Planes" movie is one that its creators say will take viewers "above the world of Cars." But how high it flies toward that goal just might depend on your age. Unlike Disney-Pixar's "Cars," this new film has little humor for adults to enjoy. And, given its uninteresting or original story line, there's little chance that "Planes" will have the widespread appeal of the 2006 John Lasseter production that introduced us to Lightning McQueen and Mater.
