Thanks to Air Asia Singapore, we had the privilege of catching the movie, “Planes” by Walt Disney Pictures at Golden Village VivoCity and here’s our review of the movie.

Movie Synopsis of Planes:

A spin-off of Disney and Pixar’s 2006 animated film “Cars”, “Planes” takes off with an international cast of the fastest air racers around. It is a comedic film packed with action and adventure starring Dusty, a small town dreamer who longs to enter the most epic around-the-world air race, despite his fear of heights. With the help and support of a fleet of new and hilarious characters, Dusty wings his way into the biggest challenge of his life.

Our Review of Planes:

To be really honest, we felt as though we were watching the movie, “Cars” all over again because the story plot is predictable and not so original. As a matter of fact, we found “Cars” and “Planes” extremely similar and the only difference that sets them apart is; one has a theme entirely on cars and the other on planes. Spanning a running time of 1 hour 35 minutes, you might want to consider bringing your little ones for a movie treat but if you’re on budget constraints, we rather that you save your money for upcoming movies like Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World. Don’t get us wrong though; Planes is not entirely that bad because after all, it is a wholesome movie that teaches the values of resilience, discipline, and confidence.

Having said all these, Planes would probably entertain children [age 8 and below] more as compared to those whom have caught “Cars” before.
