Thoughts on Planes
Planes is an animated adventure movie that takes place above the Cars world. Whereby we get an unlikely hero needing to fight for their place in a race that doesn’t realistic stand a chance in this style of race. Meanwhile the experienced racers spend more time trying to take out Dusty, than just being the better racer.
This will fill out everything you should expect from an animated movie that wants to tell the story about fitting in and chasing your dreams. This isn’t going to be the most interesting, but it will entertain for the most part.
Final Thoughts – Planes is an easy to watch animated movie.
