Movie Review: Disney's Planes ✭✭✭✭✭ - In cinemas August 16th


From above the world of Cars comes Disney’s Planes, an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty (voice of Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing - and he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to a seasoned naval aviator, Skipper, who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit, Ripslinger. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.

With a whole host of voice talent onboard including John Cleese as Bulldog and Teri Hatcher as Dottie, this film has lots of loveable characters who get into all sorts of mishaps along the way. The story is typical Disney, the underdog winning in the end, but that's not without it's challenges along the way. At one point Dusty is taken down during the race and crashes into the rough ocean. Rescued by the team on USS 'Flysenhower' he is patched up and continues on his epic journey while planes around the world are watching on their 'Skypads'.

The 3D enhances the action, and at times the animation is so smooth you forget you are watching an animated film - the scenery is beautiful from the fields in the American countryside to the Taj Mahal in India - no detail is left behind and this makes the film lovely to watch.

With a flight duration of around 80 minutes, Planes is just the right length for children and adults alike, and this soars into my list of top films for 2013 landing in UK cinemas on the 16th August. 

Don't miss this flight and jump on board.
