Synopsis


Planes: Fire & Rescue
Adventure flies higher than ever before in this sequel that finds championship air-racer Dusty Crophopper (voice of Dane Cook) beginning an exciting new career fighting forest fires. In the wake of another successful racing season, Dusty returns home to Propwash Junction to resume his training. But a debilitating injury forces Rusty to consider a new career path. Before long Rusty is training with the Aerial Fire Fighters at Piston Peak Air Attack Base. Becoming a Single Engine Air Tanker (SEAT) is no simple task for an injured plane, but with the guidance of seasoned fire-and-rescue helicopter Blade Ranger (voice of Ed Harris), fearless leader of the Piston Peak Air Attack team, Rusty is soon soaring through the clouds once again. Meanwhile, as Rusty gets up to speed, his presence in the unit catches the attention of Dipper (Voice of Julie Bowen), a cargo-hauler-turned-water scooper capable of skimming lake water to combat raging fires. A major racing fan, Dipper can hardly contain her excitement at the prospect of working alongside Rusty, and meanwhile wise, heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter (voice of Wes Studi) has never encountered a fire he couldn't conquer. In no time Rusty has made a whole host of new friends at Piston Peak, including hulking transport plane Cabbie (voice of Dale Dye), the brave grounded firefighters known as The Smokejumpers, The Secretary of the Interior (voice of Fred Willard), and Nick "Loop'n" Lopez (voice of Erik Estrada), a helicopter cop with an illustrious past. And though learning the secrets to dousing forest fires is sure to take time, Rusty is a fast learner, and eager to pitch in. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Thrilling, Tickling and Touching

    This movie combines so many different elements that it's hard to review them all at once. First, there's the central character's drama. After he's gotten good and used to the adulation his racing career brings, it has to stop. A 'medical' condition threatens to kill him if he pursues that 110% lifestyle. So, he sets his sights elsewhere - not lower (as he was to find), but elsewhere, and among others, each with a past of their own. Then there's a "little engine that could" subtext, with plenty of setbacks. There's also the inspiring thought that a hero doesn't need to be a hero to anyone, or even known to be heroic. ("How do I get my picture on that wall?") There's more in that thought that I realized at first, the notion of being your own hero, and a real one, not just an ego-fantasy. Also, self-worth through achievement instead of an entitled feel-goodism, and seeing many contributors making very different contributions, and the snarky sense of comeuppance when that self-serving bureaucrat gets his mud-flaps pinned back, it all adds up to a healthy view of what a truly good life can be, in terms kids can grasp. But John Lassiter produced this and that's as good as a promise signed, sworn, and notarized saying you'll get technical excellence welded to warm characterization. Go back to his 1986 'Luxo Jr,' and give that talent thirty years to mature - that's what you'll see here. And, as a Disney flick, you have some assurance of kid-safeness

    When I heard of PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE, I couldn’t imagine the sequel being better than the original. However, after having seen the movie I can admit I was wrong. PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE is a superior movie to PLANES in every way. It’s a movie that people of any age can enjoy watching and honors the nations firefighters at the same time. In terms of story, the film follows the hero of PLANES, Dusty Crophopper (voice by Dane Cook). After winning the Wings Across the World race, Dusty has now become a world famous celebrity and made a very successful career out of racing. He has become one of the best racers in the world. However, a personal “medical” tragedy as well as an economic crisis at Propwash Junction force Dusty to re-evaluate his life. In order to help the airport (and get some perspective away from racing), Dusty volunteers to become trained and certified as a firefighter. He’s sent away to a training center in Piston Peak. While there he becomes engulfed in fighting a massive wildfire and, along the way, learns some very important life lessons.

    pixar fan, but somewhat dissappointed

    Love Pixar! Love Disney! Enjoyed Cars and Planes. But this Planes sequel seemed to suffer from either writers block or management...the story is thin, the plot is watered down too much, character development and evolution nearly missing. Cars 2 was a strong sequel and had its own problem. But as much as I liked Dusty in Planes, I didn't feel as engaged this time around. The story was just ok in my book, and suffered maybe from the additional characters. Most young kids will enjoy it regardless, but there wasn't as much adult level entertainment in this as in other Pixar greats. Recommended if you have kids, grandkids, or just collect Pixar, Disney, Buena Vista movies.

    Like the title says, this isn't as good as the original. Full disclosure though, I didn't think the original was that great either. This one felt like something that Disney would have sent straight to DVD in the past. Felt like a cash grab more than a movie that Pixar put their heart into. This was like "Cars 2" in that they seemed to struggle to catch the appeal of the original. The kids will enjoy it though. Kids will love it for the characters and the "suspense" but, unless they are young and prone to multiple viewings, this will be one you watch once or twice then it gets filed away as part of the "hey I forgot we owned that movie" collection.

    Charming animated film, OK for kids and adults

    This is the 2nd in the series of movies that are like the Cars movies... but about planes instead. So it's the same kind of thing. It's harmless, mildly pleasing entertainment for the most part... probably best enjoyed by kids. But the animation is fun to watch if you're an animation enthusiast... and I really connected to this film because it's mostly set in a (fictional) National Park and has a bit of a natural conservation/preservation theme. And I like aviation topics a lot. So it was a win/win for me.

    Poor 2nd Tier Disney Movie

    We all know that Disney releases great movies as their normal "1st Tier" offerings......Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, etc., and these are all great films. Then, they release great "2nd Tier" sequels like Toy Story 2, etc. which live up to the greatness of the first film. This was not one of those great "2nd Tier" Disney offerings. Instead, they milk films and release unnecessary sequels. This film was one of those unnecessary sequels that really fell short, a true "3rd Tier" offering.

    Like the first "Planes" and The Cars franchise before, this product is aimed squarely at children. There is nothing wrong with that idea, but Pixar has made a strong reputation on making films that appeal to all age groups. Planes Fire and Rescue is beautifully made (another Pixar staple) and has some fine moments. The characters will engage the kiddies and probably invade your wallet through all the merchandising.
