Reviews

Planes 2: Fire & Rescue is a new comedy-adventure about second chances, featuring a dynamic crew of elite firefighting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from raging wildfire. When world famous air racer Dusty (voice of Dane Cook) learns that his engine is damaged and he may never race again, he must shift gears and is launched into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire-and-rescue helicopter Blade Ranger (voice of Ed Harris) and his courageous team, including spirited air tanker Dipper (voice of Julie Bowen), heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter, ex-military transport Cabbie (voice of Captain Dale Dye) and a lively bunch of brave allterrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers. Together, the fearless team battles a massive wildfire and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero.

All the "professional" reviews marked this film off as being derivative of Cars, lacking innovation etc when it came out. But its aimed at kids, if you want to push boundaries go watch a Lars von Trier film.

My 3.5 year old has watched the original Planes dozens of times and has Dusty everything. Took him to the cinema to see this and he absolutely loved it. The story is different enough from the original movie that it didn't feel repetitive in the slightest. I could wax lyrical about how it contains some important lessons i.e. the value of not giving up, sacrificing yourself for the greater good. But I'm pretty sure my son just loved the cool action scenes and talking vehicles! Even better, it has AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" as a theme song and he now insists we play the "Planes" song whenever we're at home, much to his mum's annoyance.

Now that its out on DVD I shall be buying it and expecting to hear nothing else but this from the back seat of the car on long journeys for the next year.

You know what, I actually thought "Fire and Rescue" was not as bad as the previous "Planes". It's full of jokes and actually some soul-searching material (when Dusty the racer plane has to humbly become a firefighter due to tragic circumstances). The action scenes are aplenty and somewhat breathtaking - the $50m were well-spent on production! There are unpretentious characters, a few corny jokes and a warm and earnest message - what more could you wish for?

A ten-year old enjoyed it (he awarded 4.80 stars to it!).

I have a 4 year old who loved the first movie, and I can understand why a few reviewers disliked it. personally I quite enjoyed the jokes though the movie as a whole was fairly slow and completely predictable for an adult to watch. But as I said my 4 year old loved it and now my 2 year old really likes it too.

So when Planes II came out at the cinema I took the oldest and 3 of his friends along to watch it.

***Spolier***
The movie starts of pretty slow, Dusty is now an established racer and has (predictably) put Crop wash junction on the map, all is fine until he develops an engine problem that basically cancels his racing career. In a feat of deniability he goes out flying, panics when his engine warning lights come on and mucks up his landing.

Its at this point that the movie really starts to get interesting for the adults.

The resulting fire then causes the airfield to be closed until the old fire engine "Mayday" can be upgraded and a second fire fighter employed.
A rather guilty Dusty volunteers and heads off to Piston Peak National park to get qualified. Queue some fantastic AC/DC music and drama!
dusty begins his training but hides his faulty engine from everyone, until right near the end when we see a much more mature dusty sacrificing himself to save a couple of old timers. (Dont worry though in true disney style its all ok in the end)

Overall the movie is much more balanced, though a few of the jokes from the first movie make a re-appearance, the characters have a much deeper quality, with plenty of laughs for adults as well as the kids. its also much faster paced as the movie develops so you'll feel like the last few scenes really are a do or die scenario.

This is a massive improvement compared to the first Planes movie. I disliked it so much I spent 20mins writing very negative Amazon review, I hoped on every opportunity to poke it and make jokes about it. The Fire and Rescue however is different kettle of fish.
The opening 10-15 minutes are Planes-1-like - it's slow, filled with failed jokes, nothing exiting overall, the TMST scene being the only exception. After that we get some good adrenaline filled, fast paced action movie.. if you can use that terminology when you talk about animated movie. Some of the dialogs are well written and I found few of the lines funny.
The new characters have more depth, charisma, individuality and are more likeable than the old ones. Personally I just can't stand Chug and Sparky.. but each to it's own. Them two combined don't even make half a Mater (for those who claim Planes are "Cars with wings" and Chug is the equivalent of Tow Mater)... little diggresion there.

Planes 1 is a Bollywood style, very childish, naive, unrealistic (borderline of absurd) children's cartoon.
Planes 2 is action packed, animation for kids AND their parents. And most of all it's more realistic. Take Dusty's gearbox fault and compare it with Planes 1 when he "drowned" in the Pacific and Dottie used parts from 10 or 15 different aircrafts to fix him. Not to mention the makers have spent some time with the Californian Department of Forestry and Fire Protection BEFORE they actually started making it.

It's a strong 3*, probably 4* movie.. but because of the AC/DC track I can't give it any less than 5!

Remember... With thunder comes lightning. And with lightning... comes fire!

By Mr. C. Gelderd VINE VOICE on 28 April 2015
Format: Blu-ray
Playing it nice and safe in the colourful, bright and bubbly world of ‘Cars’, this sequel continues the adventures of Dusty Crophopper, voiced with great fun and relish by Dane Cook, acting as our clichéd hero who causes great danger to himself and others by being stubborn, rash and careless and needs to be more careful, thoughtful and cooperate in his actions. That’s the basic moral of this Disney tale, told via fun humour, a very simple plot and lots of great visuals.

While this instalment may spend a little too much time with our characters talking, rationalising and deliberation their actions and how best to achieve their goals, it may prove distracting for younger viewers. We don’t have the constant thrills of the air races like we had in the first film; this saves the action for the finale. However, we have fun characters of all shapes and sizes, but the most engaging seem to be the fire ground crew, led by Regina King’s Dynamite truck, who drive, jump and skid around like Minions on wheels.

With good support from Ed Harris, Teri Hatcher and Julie Bowen, we have our usual cast of bitter heroes with a dark history, the romance interest, the bumbling friend and the shady bad guy. All these things can be ticked off, and there’s not a huge amount of originality to proceedings, but the general look and setting of the story is fun and exciting enough in places.

As this doesn’t seem to flow as smooth as the first time with their thrilling races leading to one final outcome, this compensates with some exciting and thrilling action as the heroes (and villains) navigate and try to stop a large fire.
