Fantastic underrated work of animation.
11 November 2014 | by LinkGokuSee all my reviews

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)
