Escape From Planet Earth Reviews

February 19, 2013
A lightweight, warp-speed, brightly colored trifle that should delight small children and sporadically amuse their parents.
February 19, 2013
Serviceable sci-fi - stopping momentarily at local theaters en route to its destiny on DVD as generic, escapist diversion for youngsters, teaching teamwork and preaching family loyalty and love.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
February 18, 2013
An energetic but thoroughly watered-down kiddie flick.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
February 18, 2013
A surprisingly well-produced effort that fills the recent vacuum of family films without totally sucking.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
February 18, 2013
It never discovers new worlds, but "Escape From Planet Earth" is, in its genial way, escape enough.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 16, 2013
The colorful animation can't compensate for a mediocre script that generally lacks depth, excitement and consistent laughs.
February 16, 2013
And just to make sure the feature radiates complete nonsense, every time a character falls in Escape from Planet Earth, there's a fart sound effect piped in. Surely your children would rather watch Argo instead, right?
Full Review | Original Score: D
February 15, 2013
Predictable alien adventure is violent and forgettable.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
February 15, 2013
It almost works as an amiable, if derivative, time-waster for kids with a few jokes for the grown-ups, but too much is unsettlingly off-base.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
February 15, 2013
Escape from Planet Earth's flaws would be more forgivable if the film offered better fun for younger viewers.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 15, 2013
A children's movie about space-traveling blue beings that has lots of high-flying escapades but fairly low aspirations.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
February 15, 2013
Has it all for people looking for nothing.
Full Review | Original Score: D+
February 15, 2013
Passable animated entertainment is stronger on humor than adventure.
February 15, 2013
The late Douglas Adams summed up Earth as "mostly harmless," a description that also applies to this eminently tolerable animated time-filler.

It's a bowl of warm water into which no one has bothered to place a bouillon cube. The kids in the theater with me never mustered a single laugh or gasp of excitement. It's plenty o' nuttin'.
February 15, 2013
It's unchallenging fun for a younger crowd, but adults might feel like they're staring down a colorful 24-piece board puzzle, trying to figure out how such a simple activity could be drawn out over 90 minutes.

This might please young kids but torment discerning parents.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 15, 2013
Mediocre. But for The Weinsteins in animation? That's an improvement.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
February 15, 2013
It ... provides a few smiles, and a decent amount of rainy-day, kiddie entertainment.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
February 15, 2013
A sci-fi chuckler that somehow manages to elude tedium, despite being a revisionist rip of rival 'toons, from Pixar on down.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
