Larry the Cable Guy,
When world-famous air racer Dusty learns that his engine is damaged and he may never race again, he must shift gears and is launched into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire and rescue helicopter Blade Ranger and his team, a bunch of all-terrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers. Together, the fearless team battles a massive wildfire, and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero.Written by
There are some similarities between Blade Ranger, former star of "CHoPs" and Airwolf (1984). After the show's end the chopper was sold to a German firm. Airwolf - as a Bell 222 - flew as an air ambulance. See more »
In the movie, the red and green navigation lights are visible from aircraft in positions where they would not be visible in real life. The red light would be visible only through an arc of 110 degrees from straight ahead to port. The green light would be visible only through an arc of 110 degrees from straight ahead to starboard. This means that you would only see both read and green navigation lights if you were looking head on to the aircraft and would see neither red nor green if within an arc of 140 degrees centred on straight behind (70 degrees either side).

Dusty Crophopper damages his gearbox and is unable to race, to help his friend he starts firefighting, the perils await.
After Planes (which I seemed to enjoy more than most) received very low ratings it was hard to see the light for this film. Fortunately Planes: Fire & Rescue manages to outdo its predecessor.
The movies is filled with lots of familiar actors lending there voices. There's lots of funny moments including Some good innuendo that'll go over the kids heads.
But the real highlight for this movie is its amazing action and effects. Its incredibly fast paced with lots of glorious flight sequences.
I wouldn't call this movie perfect, in fact I purposefully overrated this film to try get its star rating (currently 5.9) higher. But overall this is an awesome work of animation that's entertaining for all ages.
Don't listen to all the negativity. This is worthy of being called another Disney classic in my book. (BTW while I enjoyed the first film I wouldn't consider it a classic)
