“PLANES” Animation Movie. Will the Sky be the Ultimate for “PLANES”?
“PLANES” ANIMATION MOVIE (REVIEW)
The ANIMATION bug has gotten into us in such a big way now, judging by the myriad offerings of ANIMATION films this season.
Technology changes, the CGI fever catches on and is deemed to be around for awhile.
I am not big on ANIMATION features but this one certainly begs to be different.
”PLANES” is a breezy animation feature linked to PIXAR.
Now, the ANIMATION industry acknowledges PIXAR as an award winning brand.
As of June 2013, PIXAR has already surpassed a record of fourteen films, all released under the WALT DISNEY PICTURES belt.
The company produced its first feature-length film TOY STORY in 1995. This film won an Academy Award and was further nominated for three others. It set a benchmark for competitors to emulate.
For PIXAR, they are standing proud with other noteworthy accomplishments such as TOY STORY 2, FINDING NEMO, THE INCREDIBLES, CARS, WALL-E, CARS 2, RED, among others.
Now comes Disney’s ‘Planes’, an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty (voice of Dane Cook), a plane with lofty aspirations of competing as a high-flying air racer.
The snag is, Dusty’s not exactly built for racing – as he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to a seasoned naval aviator for help, in order to qualify as a competitor in the race circuit.
The protagonist is Dusty (voiced by Dane Cook), a small crop-dusting aircraft whose fear of heights are at odds with his dreams of competing in the Wings Around the Globe rally.
With support from a merry gang such as mentor Skipper Riley (Stacy Keach), forklift Dottie (Teri Hatcher) and glamorous Pan-Asian champion Ishani (Bollywood superstar Priyanka Chopra), he’s able to enter the competition.
The film’s overriding message is “dream hard, work hard, because nothing comes from nothing.”
“PLANES” may not be a shining gem among previous animation films, but it sure is hilarious and outrageous.
The crazy characters in this raucous comedy are a chockfull of heartwarming fun.
Dazzling colors, brilliant visuals.
It’s witty and entertaining and a blast from start to finish.
