Actually, the humor is one of the strangest elements of Fire & Rescue, mainly in that it feels largely absent.

While the script is full of obvious and easy aircraft metaphors which are funny, it lacks the kind of witticisms and wisecracks that elevate other contemporary animated films so that they can be enjoyed by a much wider audience.

Like Cars, this is essentially funny-animal animation with chrome and aluminium instead of fur.

This Disney cartoon is running on empty.

It's as if the Mouse House is providing bootlegs of its own material.

A solid voice cast (Harris, Holbrook et al) doesn't add much more than cosmetic touches to this bland animation.
August 7, 2014
The slender plot is very ordinary and the corny gags come thick and fast.

The kids will be satisfied with a thin slice of Pixar topped with Disney frosting, but there's nothing satisfying for the rest of us to chew on.
August 7, 2014
The target audience of under-10s has every right to feel patronised.

This story of heroism is second rate stuff that's unlikely to light your own fire.

This rotor movie's rote in places, too talky, and overstuffed with characters. Worst of all, one 'copter is a stereotypical Native; second-worst is Dipper, the main female character, a dippy, clingy, quasi-stalker type.

As with the first film, children will be drawn to the bright colours and simple morals, which makes some of the sexual and racial stereotyping on the sidelines rather regrettable.

It's not that there's less than meets the eye in Planes: Fire & Rescue, but rather that it is exactly what meets the eye: all surface, nothing more, nothing less.

Like being trapped in a revolving door of mediocrity, and it offers further proof that Disney is only in it for the money it can siphon from the wallets of unwary parents.

Displaying a weird lack of memorable or endearing characters, this animated effort feels like a direct-to-video job from the 1990s.

It's probably a little bit better than Planes, with a far more engaging third act and prettier scenery throughout.
July 25, 2014
Despite its half-hearted tribute to first responders, this lackluster 3D effort fails to take flight.

...content to operate as an endeavor aimed directly at younger audiences.
July 18, 2014
...this is a film that's so squarely content at being a movie just for kids...that it never rises above the dull and uninspired.

Planes: Fire & Rescue is a better made film than its predecessor on a technical level, but otherwise just as generic (in some ways, more so) on a storytelling level.
