Beautifully (duh!) and expensively (duh squared!) animated, this has its charms, but ultimately gets a little yawn-worthy, with too many characters, too much going on and too many unanswered questions.

Think Cars, but with planes. Passable, pleasant, mildly fun and apparently written by computer.

Reach for the stars is the theme of this Disney 3D animation and while it's cute in part, it lacks the throttle of Pixar's Cars franchise

In the skies, as on tarmac, this remains the world's most fossil-fuel-friendly franchise.

Visually, "Planes" aircraft characters owe a huge debt to cartoonist Hank Caruso, who's been doing this stuff for decades ... As a movie, "Planes" is pretty meh.

A forgettable, though not dislikable, affair.

Disney takes over Pixar's "World of Cars" with this spin-off that no-one really asked for. Indeed, this is an essentially disposable adventure, smiley and formulaic with a few minor thrills and a gentle sense of humour.

It may not soar as high as its Pixar counterparts, but Disney's 'Planes'[ takes off nicely as a good-natured addition to 'The World of Cars.'

It's an amiable enough entertainment, gentle and good-natured ...

At its best, Planes soars above anything Disney Animation Stuios have produced in recent years on a computer, and when it's not quite that high, it remains an singularly child-friendly affair.

An endearing enough David-and-Goliath tale, aimed squarely at younger kids.

Since Disney and Pixar are now one and the same, the head honchos must have thought rehashing a proven formula would be a good idea. Not so much ---

Airborne adventure is OK for a few laughs; some stereotypes.

Planes isn't going to join the pantheon of great animated Disney movies, but when it comes to light entertainment, it takes off smoothly, glides along on a sweet script and lands softly on a nice message.

While I'm not sure it needs a theatrical release, I'm struck by the rarity of seeing such a comparatively simple, innocent cartoon on the big screen.

Planes is good enough, and may fly at the boxoffice, but it does not soar to the heavens.
August 8, 2013
The modest ambitions for this movie are refreshing in a summer of over-plotted movies for kids.

A zippy little programmer designed to exploit the same vehicles-as-people formula as the Cars franchise.
August 8, 2013
While the plotting is rather pedestrian, the humour mostly lame, what makes Planes a stand-out experience - not surprisingly, based on Disney's vast and impressive history of animated classics - is the visuals.
