  • Bill Zwecker

    Planes: Fire & Rescue is a good improvement over “Planes,” which Disney released last year. The story is stronger, there are some wonderful additions to the voice talent and the 3D cinematography is well-utilized.

    This sequel, thankfully, is faster paced, and has more action.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Stephan Lee

    Despite somewhat of a direct-to-DVD plot, the perilous and elaborate rescue scenes are certainly big-screen-worthy. Canny references to '70s television and some genuinely funny moments will give grown-ups enough fuel to cross the finish line.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    Planes: Fire and Rescue serves as a dramatic improvement over the original, introducing thrilling action sequences backed by actual stakes and an unexpected emotional dimension, all on top of upgraded animation and a greater emphasis on character.

  • Kenneth Turan

    If you ignore the slicker aspects of the dialogue (and with a little effort you mostly can), it's satisfying to find a film that is as innocent and as much visual fun as this one is.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Planes: Fire & Rescue is a slight but improbably successful example of a movie that, despite its profusion of chrome and steel, somehow succeeds in touching something human.

  • Susan Wloszczyna

    Surprise, surprise. This "Planes" quickly grounds itself with a story that at least offers an emotional hook (if not ladder) that most adults and even kids can appreciate. Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Without the kindling of character development, Planes: Fire and Rescue is no smoldering success, but if Disney’s flight plan is to share Pixar’s airspace, it’s getting warmer.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Mark Feeney

    Ed Harris, who voices Blade Ranger, the no-nonsense helicopter who heads the fire-and-rescue operation, doesn’t lay it on too strong. Julie Bowen, as Lil’ Dipper, an air tanker, does.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mike McCahill

    The action is colourful, the vistas as organic as pixels will allow and, once it gets past the quickfire editing of the early stages, considered application of 3D heightens the sense of space and glide. Not much magic, but an appreciable level of polish.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • James Rocchi

    This movie hardly rates as first-class animation, but it gets in, gets the job done, and moves on both swiftly and well.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    The sequel, Planes: Fire and Rescue, is still a DisneyToon production, but it does aim higher, with a visual zip that was lacking from the first. It is, in almost all respects, a better movie. It’s still not particularly good, though.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Jen Chaney

    The Disney animators still take great care to capture the majestic beauty in the jagged landscapes and towering conifers of the Yellowstone-esque Piston Peak Park. Unfortunately, the same contours and shading don’t apply to the characters.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    With the lackluster quality of its characters — aircraft, a smattering of trucks, RVs and motorcycles — the movie makes Pixar's Cars and its sequel look like masterpieces.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    An occasionally rousing but mostly just adequate sequel to last year's "Planes."

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    This Disney sequel to 2013’s “Planes” is a lot like flying coach: serviceable, but not trying that hard.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Planes: Fire & Rescue is roughly twice as good as its predecessor, Planes, which was so story-and-laugh starved it would have given “direct-to-video” a bad name. Yes, there was nowhere to go but up.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Beautiful to look at, this is nothing more than a Little Engine That Could story refitted to accommodate aerial action and therefore unlikely to engage the active interest of anyone above the age of about 8, or 10 at the most.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    These self-actualization stories, while certainly well-intentioned, get exhausting after a while, and it also starts to make storytelling for kids feel like it's all wrapped in this language of affirmation, and it smothers the simple joy of creating good characters we want to spend time with.

  • A.A. Dowd

    It’s nice to look at, easy to watch, and impossible to remember for the length of a car-ride home.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Surprisingly dull.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    In 3-D, the firefighting scenes are visually striking — with plumes of smoke and chemical dust — though the backgrounds, like other aspects of the film, lack dimension.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Louis Black

    Overall, Planes: Fire & Rescue, though featuring lovely graphics and stunning animation, is just too mundane.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    A time-killing kid-flick whose title is an exact summary of its plot.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    The animation in Planes: Fire & Rescue is considerably better, the landscapes grander, and the 3-D flight and firefighting scenes more exciting.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Sean Tepper

    There’s nothing inherently wrong with kid-friendly Fire & Rescue – the movie offers enough jokes and glitzy animation to capture its target audience as well as a few witty puns for their accompanying adult – it just doesn’t introduce any new ideas or compelling characters, traits that we’ve come to expect from high-level animated films.

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

    The jokes are few and far between, and the film lacks the spark of imagination required to engage meaningfully with young viewers... but Fire & Rescue is a competent distraction all the same, mostly on the strength of its non-threateningly round animation and magic-hour color palette.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Eric Henderson

    It's not even made clear whether the machines can feel pain. But after sitting through Fire & Rescue, interminable even at a lean 83 minutes, I sincerely hope they do.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Catherine Bray

    Displaying a weird lack of memorable or endearing characters, this animated effort feels more like a direct-to-video job from the 1990s than a fully fledged John Lasseter–exec-produced theatrical release.
