3 of 5

“..this movie hardly rates as first-class animation, but it gets in, gets the job done, and moves on both swiftly and well..”
by James Rocchi [The Wrap]
3 of 4

“..the story is stronger, there are some wonderful additions to the voice talent and the 3D cinematography is well-utilized..”
by Bill Zwecker [Chicago Sun-Times]
2.5 of 4

“..that lowly status shows here in the pokey storytelling, dreadful score, and generally tired comedy..”
by Mark Feeney [Boston Globe]
Review rate : B

“..a dramatic improvement over the original, introducing thrilling action sequences backed by actual stakes and an unexpected emotional dimension, all on top of upgraded animation and a greater emphasis on character..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]
“.."Planes: Fire & Rescue" is a slight but improbably successful example of a movie that, despite its profusion of chrome and steel, somehow succeeds in touching something human..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
