Review of Disney’s “Planes: Fire and Rescue” in 3D at the Regal 16 Theaters in New Albany, Indiana


Jackie was given free movie tickets for purpose of review.

opportunity to see “Planes: Fire and Rescue” at the screening we attended
Wednesday night at the Regal 16 Theaters. This wasn’t just any movie for us. It
was the first time for both my boys to go to a movie in a theatre! Our family
was ready to go, and we were not disappointed.
If your family is anything like ours, we have watched Cars,
Cars2, and Planes too many times to count. We love planes, cars, trucks,
trains, and construction equipment. We were in luck! This movie had a lot of
things that we thought were missing from the first Planes movie. The dramatic
action begins when Dusty Crophopper, that superstar of racing, discovers a
problem with his gearbox that spells the end of his racing career.  A series of events leads to Dusty being
trained as a fire rescue plane, to save Propwash Junction’s airport from being
shut down.

first Cars movie.  We were quickly
introduced to new characters, and their personalities endeared them to us very
quickly. The action picks up, and the story line was really enjoyable. The few
moments where characters were in danger or injured, were resolved in a gentle
way. This was good for us, because our boys are pretty young and my oldest son
tends to be more sensitive.

 I would recommend
this movie!  If you enjoyed Cars, and
have wished (like we have) for another movie with the same charm and wit, this
is it. All 4 of us had a very enjoyable time, and I look forward to adding
“Planes: Fire and Rescue” to our library!
