  • The planes' flight is invariably CGI-assisted, and the resulting comedy is mild, but there is a relaxed, happy atmosphere.

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.
