Actually, the humor is one of the strangest elements of Fire & Rescue, mainly in that it feels largely absent.

While the script is full of obvious and easy aircraft metaphors which are funny, it lacks the kind of witticisms and wisecracks that elevate other contemporary animated films so that they can be enjoyed by a much wider audience.

Not only are the cliches more deftly packaged this time around, the action scenes - with long, exciting tracking shots of planes flying through valleys and over wild fires - often look like they were directed by James Cameron.

Somehow, this sequel to a rubbish spin-off to a rubbish sequel to a so-so cartoon is actually pretty good.

Like Cars, this is essentially funny-animal animation with chrome and aluminium instead of fur.

This Disney cartoon is running on empty.

It's as if the Mouse House is providing bootlegs of its own material.

Despite the fact that this too-soon spin-off feels like a mere cash-in on the Disney Cars/Planes marketing machine, this sequel is actually a lot more fun than expected.

If it does become faintly dull and preachy, the trim humour and detailing - the CHiPs spoof CHoPs, Motorjito cocktails, the pickup truck with superb pickup lines - soon get it squarely back on the fun runway.

Perhaps these rock-bottom expectations are a good thing, because Planes 2 feels like a significant upgrade on its distinctly run-of-the-mill predecessor...

A solid voice cast (Harris, Holbrook et al) doesn't add much more than cosmetic touches to this bland animation.

The slender plot is very ordinary and the corny gags come thick and fast.

The kids will be satisfied with a thin slice of Pixar topped with Disney frosting, but there's nothing satisfying for the rest of us to chew on.

The target audience of under-10s has every right to feel patronised.

This story of heroism is second rate stuff that's unlikely to light your own fire.

This rotor movie's rote in places, too talky, and overstuffed with characters. Worst of all, one 'copter is a stereotypical Native; second-worst is Dipper, the main female character, a dippy, clingy, quasi-stalker type.
August 5, 2014
An old-fashioned kiddie flick with a straightforward story, simple characters, a heartfelt message and impressive 3D flying scenes. Smaller children should love it.

Disney have an opportunity to engage children with something profound and real if they continue to pursue hero stories like these.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 5, 2014
As with the first film, children will be drawn to the bright colours and simple morals, which makes some of the sexual and racial stereotyping on the sidelines rather regrettable.

Not much magic, but an appreciable level of polish.
