Synopsis:This sequel finds championship air-racer Dusty Crophopper (voice of Dane Cook) beginning an exciting new career fighting forest fires. In the wake of another successful racing season, Dusty returns home to Propwash Junction to resume his training. But a debilitating injury forces Rusty to consider a new career path. Before long Rusty is training with the Aerial Fire Fighters at Piston Peak Air Attack Base. Becoming a Single Engine Air Tanker (SEAT) is no simple task for an injured plane, but with the guidance of seasoned fire-and-rescue helicopter Blade Ranger (voice of Ed Harris), fearless leader of the Piston Peak Air Attack team, Rusty is soon soaring through the clouds once again.
Small minded and kiddish, this adventure is nothing more than a rehash of Disney’s earlier forays into auto-mated territory. The character dynamics are familiar but effective. The visuals are beautiful, the aerial acrobatics are thrilling and the voice performances add gravitas to the entire show.
Script writer and director (a longtime Disney TV helmer making his feature debut) and returning “Planes” scribe Jeffrey M. Howard were inspired by the fact that crop dusters were in fact used in wildfire air attacks which becomes the basis for heavy dramatics in this picture accompanied by impressively staged setpieces. The animation here is nearly flawless in its detailed rendering of natural settings. The fire is also rendered flawlessly, which makes the rescue acts even more thrilling. And that’s the most unique and impressive feature of this otherwise standardized production.
In other words, this is nothing much more than a simple elevated tale- of fire fighting planes to the rescue with Dusty, experiencing trouble and therefore reinventing himself for a far more noble cinematic sojourn.
Best suited for the below 10 age group. Their wards will have to bear-up with it , of course!
