Disney's Planes Review

(All images: Copyright Walt Disney Pictures)

If you read the write up about the story of Disney's Planes and the story of Dreamworks' Turbo, you would think that the two movies will be too close to each other in detail. I know that was my worry for 'Planes' since 'Turbo' came out first, but I am happy to say that you can see both films and not know the ending of the other.

As many of the ads for this film show it is based on the "world above Cars". Now 'Cars' was done with Disney and Pixar, 'Planes' however is done by Disney Aniamation which is a first for Disney to do a film based on the world in a "Disney/Pixar" film. Now the fact that John Lasseter was Writer and Executive Producer for this film really helps the movie stay true to the world of Cars, it even has some of the everyday Pixar Easter Eggs. I think they work in the 'Cars' theme perfectly while still making this its own film.

Detail, detail, detail! That is one of the best parts of this movie, you will love every scene. The best parts for the detail in this film are the flight scenes (Seen above). You ever been on the ride Soarin' at Walt Disney World or Disneyland? Well picture the wonders of that ride done in CGI, that is what this movie has. Disney's Planes is a fun full of detail movie with a true to life story.

Where would a movie be without its cast? This movie has quite the cast to go along with the great special effects. As a critic I think one of the most important parts of a movie is that the whole cast works perfect together, because one little slip and the movie could be ruined. Luckily this cast does work perfect together for the whole film. As I said this film has a true to life story which can be deep for a Disney film but it also has its comedy, how could it not with its cast? You have Dane Cook (Dusty), Brad Garrett (Chug) and John Cleese (Bulldog).

 As well as Sinbad (Roper), Gabriel Iglesias (Ned and Zed) and Cedric the Entertainer (Leadbottom).

You can't go wrong with the comedy in this film. Also making a return to the big screen from 'Cars 2' Brent Musburger as Brent Mustangburger! Val Kilmer (Bravo) and Anthony Edwards (Echo) return to the fighter jets or should I say as fighter jets as well.

There is someone else in this film, can you tell me who? It isn't his first time doing voices for Disney.

Here is a fun fact for any HGTV and DIY fans reading this, Ripslinger's voice is done by Roger Craig Smith. Roger has done the voice overs for 'Kitchen Crashers', 'Yard Crashers' and 'Room Crashers'.

This movie is worth seeing again and again. So make your way to the theater alone, with a friend or with the whole family because this is a movie for all ages.
