The meek action plays to the under-10 crowd, but the groaner puns will play only to masochists. Meanwhile, the 3-D ticket upcharge here is a big ripoff - the extra dimension is unnecessary.

[Blu-ray Review] This Blu-ray package is excellent, from the full-throttle A/V specs to a few brief but pleasing bonus features. Disney animation fans should have no qualms adding "Planes: Fire & Rescue" to their home collections. Recommended.

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.
