Maybe the movie is not that strong, speaking in the matter of the plot or the script but the Story is new and i enjoyed watching it.
6 July 2015 | by (Boston, MA, United States) – See all my reviews

So the movie doesn't really have a strong plot or even that intriguing eventful story but it was really enjoyable i think the fact that it is predictable makes you concentrate of the events flowing rather than what's gonna happen next .. The idea of the movie is new, never heard of a paper planes contest and it probably doesn't exist "apart from down under" and i think that what made the movie a bit more appealing and watchable. The script is average like these type of Family genre movies doesn't really need too much complications on the screenplay.

As for the cast; Sam Worthington appearance was nice, haven't seen him in ages !! since like Avatar !!! Ed Oxenbould's performance was spot on , he's a star on the making .. and also that chubby kid Julian Dennison gosh he's really funny.

Overall, the movie is not that strong, speaking in matter of the plot or the script but the story is new and i enjoyed watching it.
