    What Planes lacks in novelty, it makes up for with eye-popping aerial sequences and a high-flying comic spirit.

    When Planes really takes flight, it can be boldly transporting. Other times, though, it feels like it's running low on jet fuel, full of limp characterizations and questionable set pieces.

    Planes has some wonderfully goofy, even ineffable, touches.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Often less really is more, and that’s why I can recommend Planes, a charmingly modest low-budget spin-off from Pixar’s “Cars’’ that provides more thrills and laughs for young children and their parents than many of its more elaborate brethren.

    There’s nothing groundbreaking about the animation or script. That said, the characters and story still offer low-key charms.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    For a movie about planes, a lot happens on the ground — those refueling stops can take forever. But the animators take advantage of the power of flight, packing the action sequences with daredevil runs. But it's a race, and a kind of sameness occasionally sets in.

  • Mike Scott

    Director Klay Hall's embraceable, overachieving romp plays nicely as a big-screen feature.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Planes moves along quickly at a running time of 92 minutes, occasionally taking flight with some pretty nifty flight sequences. The animation is first-rate, and the Corningware colors are soothing eye candy.

    Planes modestly succeeds. Very modestly. Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Essentially Cars in midair.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    Airplane buffs are going to have a particularly good time; each of the planes seems to have an obscure real-life counterpart. And pop-culture junkies will appreciate a few sly nods as well.

    Elementary school-age boys may well be delighted, but it offers not a scintilla of stimulation for anyone else.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Planes has practically no visual distinction, it's a complete knockoff, but I think it'll get by with the kids.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    While visually engaging, this production of Disneytoon Studios -- it was originally slated to go direct-to-DVD -- lacks the sort of character depth and dramatic scope normally associated with the Pixar brand.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • William Goss

    A visually colorful but otherwise vanilla continuation of the series. Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    DisneyToon Studios have borrowed so much from Pixar here, and yet they seem to have learned almost nothing.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    The characters may soar, but viewers’ spirits stay grounded.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Emma Johnston

    Little ones will love the bright action scenes, but the lack of wit and humanity that makes exec producer John Lasseter’s best work so special will leave grown-ups feeling frustratingly grounded.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    Planes is for the most part content to imitate rather than innovate, presumably hoping to reap a respectable fraction of the box office numbers of “Cars” and “Cars 2,” which together made hundreds of millions of dollars (not to mention the ubiquitous product tie-ins).

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    On just about every other level other than visuals, Planes is dry, dry, dry. There's no verbal wit, no standout vocal performances.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Planes was originally scheduled to be released straight to video. Although the smallest children might like bits and pieces of it, there’s nothing in the movie that suggests why Disney strayed from its original plan.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    It’s a pleasant enough expression of a series of familiar story beats, but apart from a few brief action-sequence moments, it could hardly be more rote or vanilla.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Diverting in bits and pieces, but absent the heart, soul and ingenuity one associates with the best of Disney animation, the endlessly merchandisable picture could very well soar at the box office, but it won’t stick the landing where word of mouth is concerned.

    Variety Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Planes looks, sounds and feels like a direct-to-video project, which in an earlier age when people still bought DVDs it would have been. In theaters, it’s nothing more than a laughless 90 minute commercial for toys available at a retailer near you.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Perhaps one of the two already-in-the-works Planes sequels will crack one of these unholy machines open. That’d be about the only reason to return to this nose-diving franchise.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Phil Brown

    Despite gorgeous visuals from an army of Disney animators, the film is one of the weakest the studio has produced in years and deserved a bargain-bin DVD release.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    The animated film has all the hallmarks of a straight-to-DVD project - inferior plot, dull writing, cheap drawing.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    The film feels second-rate in every sense, from the quality of its animation to its C-list voice cast.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Little ones will stay engaged, but any kid old enough to fly unaccompanied will probably search for other in-flight entertainment.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    What a clunker.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Can a plane jump a shark when it's already in the air? To Disney, that question is moot. It's so certain that Planes will make a mint in toys, if not in theaters, that it's already slated a sequel for next summer.
