“Planes” is a Disney spin-off of Pixar‘s “Cars”. I really wish I could say something good about this film, but I really can’t think of anything. Whilst this film explores the story of an underdog that succeeds in making his dreams come true, the entire store is lacklustre. The plot is lame, the script writing is awful and the voice acting is dull. Perhaps a reason I cannot elaborate on what went wrong is because I feel that honestly, this entire movie wasn’t necessary. I’ve actually never marked a Disney film as bad before, but I guess sadly, there’s a first time for everything.
The only good thing about this film (now that I have finally thought of something) is Brad Garrett as “Chug”. But Brad Garrett is no stranger to voice acting, having lent his voice to multiple animations in the past including various Pixar films.
“Planes” is exactly that, PLAIN. Pixar effortlessly has hits, but Disneycouldn’t recreate the same magic, so this one is definitely a miss.
