For "international", read "packed with wince-worthy ethnic stereotyping" - it's the only way the writers know how to define character in a universe this soulless.
August 16, 2013
The story is routine and the animation rarely inspired, which makes it feel as if nobody cared enough to make the film soar.
August 15, 2013
A blend of spectacular visuals, very conventional storytelling and distracting does-not-compute detail, Planes would fly beneath the radar were it not for its Pixar connections.
August 15, 2013
Disappointing animated adventure that suffers from a weak script, bland characterisation and a frustrating, poorly-defined universe.
August 15, 2013
A palatable but whateverish 3D children's comedy about a lowly single-prop plane from the Midwest who dreams of flying around the world in an international race.
August 15, 2013
DisneyToon Studios have borrowed so much from Pixar here, and yet they seem to have learned almost nothing.
August 13, 2013
As a family it is not cheap for a movie going experience, this is one you can skip and save your money on.
August 13, 2013
Disney Studios have found yet another way to rake in audience members' cash without needing to trouble their own creative muscles, let alone reach far into their substantial pockets.
August 12, 2013
A Pixney misfire.
August 12, 2013
Disney and Pixar are renowned for their trailblazing innovation, but everything about Planes smacks of safe, committee-driven filmmaking with an eye on the bottom line.
August 11, 2013
For all the imagination involved in breathing animated life into the anthropomorphized eponymous flying machines, and their truck and forklift pals, the story is painfully rote
August 11, 2013
Planes isn't just tolerable - it's downright bad. It has redeeming moments and is visually pleasing, but overall there's no one target audience that will truly enjoy what Disney has to offer here.
August 10, 2013
Planes is not terrible, it is just not much of anything at all.
August 9, 2013
Even the worst Pixar effort to date operates several levels above this direct-to-video disaster.
August 9, 2013
Plain and vanilla
August 9, 2013
This is the laziest brand of kid's film: the kind created by a bunch of marketing executives in a 90th floor boardroom. For shame, John Lasseter.
August 9, 2013
Young moviegoers will enjoy large segments of Planes but it's difficult to ignore that the film is little more than an (often) dull and nearly-soulless cash grab.
August 9, 2013
a cloying commercial disguised as yet another House of Mouse wonder, and such disingenuousness is disturbing.
August 9, 2013
This is not an animated film that adults will find very intriguing.
August 9, 2013
"Planes" is so dull. A real crash-and-burn by Disney Studios, without the assistance of Pixar. And, it seems to be a rip-off of Pixar's "Cars" with many of the same types of animated characters. What a disappointment.
