Heroes can be found in some unexpected places, and in unexpected ways.
In Disney's latest, Planes: Fire & Rescue
, the hero is none other than Dusty Crophopper himself.
After some devastating news--well, if you're a plane--Dusty is forced to face the reality that he may not be able to be a race plane forever. He's been living the dream, but that dream is about to be snatched right out of his wings.
So, Dusty does what I would imagine many starts would do if they found out they might be losing their place in the history books - he acts out, and it doesn't go so well. In fact, it turns almost catastrophic.
Out of the ashes of his little tantrum, Dusty's friends and favorite airport are threatened and, without someone stepping up to the plate, it will be shut down forever. They need a hero.
How Was It?
It's just a lot of fun. It's a great sequel to the first Planes
, and it's full of great messages for kids. Messages of sacrifice, friendship and what a REAL hero looks like. And, there's some great laughs for grown-ups too. Ones that will soar WAY over kids' heads but will definitely leave you snickering.
Where Should I See It?
Well, that's up to you. Is Planes - Fire & Rescue
one you'll be kicking yourself for not seeing in the theater? Not necessarily. Is it one worth taking the kids to on a family date though? Absolutely.
Who Should I See It With?
Kids over 7, you should be fine. Under 7? Well, there's some fairly 'intense' fire scenes that could leave younger kids feeling awfully scared. However, maybe you'd get some snuggles out of the deal, so that wouldn't be half bad.
