Runtime: 83 minutes
“Planes: Fire & Rescue” is a new adventure-comedy about second chances, featuring a dynamic crew of elite firefighting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from raging wildfire. When world-famous air racer Dusty (voice of Dane Cook) learns that his engine is damaged and he may never race again, he must shift gears and is launched into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire-and-rescue helicopter Blade Ranger (voice of Ed Harris) and his courageous team, including spirited air tanker Dipper (voice of Julie Bowen), heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter (voice of Wes Studi), ex-military transport Cabbie (voice of Captain Dale Dye) and a lively bunch of brave all-terrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers. Together, the fearless team battles a massive wildfire and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero. Directed by Bobs Gannaway (“Secret of the Wings”) and produced by Ferrell Barron (“The Fox and the Hound 2”), “Planes: Fire & Rescue” hits theaters in 3D on July 18, 2014.
My Personal Thoughts & Review:
Let me just start this review out with, this is the best Planes movie yet and by far surpasses the first one. The first one was cute but I kind of found it boring and I think my son did to because when we went to the theaters and saw it he passed out about 15 minutes into it. I was wondering if he would do the same with this one but he didn't and instead was glued to the screen and has been non stop talking about it since we saw it on Monday. He says that he likes everything about it but in particular he likes the new aspect of fire fighting aspect and all of the new characters that are a part of it but in particular his favorite he said is Dipper. He's in that stage where he wants to be a firefighter so he really loved this movie.

I don't think firefighters get the appreciation or praise that they deserve and it was really great to see a movie, even a kids movie that was about firefighting and how brave they are to do it. Now if the real life day to day firefighters get more of a recognition it would be really great.
