Kudos to this bright and breezy half-term Aussie kids flick for realising that competitive paper plane flying can unleash young imaginations.

For all that, this Aussie drama has a likeable, wholesome, Children's Film Foundation vibe that takes it a long way, with the ever reliable Worthington and Oxenbould making a winning pairing as father and son.

As we progress from hastily organised competitions at school, through state and national championships, and then on to the world championships (who knew?) in Tokyo, it does deliver poignancy, charm and just a little magic.

Paper Planes is a simple reminder in this high-tech age that joy can be found in a plain piece of paper and that, if my paper plane-laden home is anything to go by, old fashioned films like this can still ignite the imagination.

Worthington and Oxenbould strike up a believable father/son dynamic, meaning that you can't help but smile at the inevitably schmaltzy ending.

The melodrama is hokey, the family details bogus (we're supposed to believe that this modern-day 12-year-old's sprightly grandfather flew spitfires in the Second World War), and the competition element as predictable as you'd expect.

Audience Reviews for Paper Planes

Sam Worthington is upstaged here but shows his softer side in this well executed kid's movie. Sure, some of the paper plane sequences are CG but it does not detract from the warm plot and believable characters.
