Thoughts on Planes: Fire and Rescue
Planes: Fire and Rescue will pick up where the last movie finished. It shows that stardom will need to face causing a decision about what to do next in their life, seeing the idea of becoming a firefighter. As a chance to continue to save other planes and automobiles that are need.
This does have a lot of peril surrounding it, showing just how hard life can be when something unexpected happens. That leads people needing to find that new purpose. This does seem to be a little too serious for a friend animation movie. It is a harmless enough sequel, it doesn’t seem to have the same heart the first one had, which both films struggled to capture if they take place above the ‘Cars’ world.
Final Thoughts – Planes: Fire and Rescue is an easy to watch sequel.
