We are fans of Cars and Cars 2 so we were excited to be invited to an advance screening of Planes 3D. We really enjoyed it. Ten thumbs up from five of us! Planes is like "Top Gun" for kids :). The main character, Dusty (a cropdusting plane), dreams of competing in an international aerial race. But he's afraid of heights...go figure! With the help of his mentor, Skipper (a reclusive old naval aviator), and several friends (old and new), Dusty soars with courage to fulfill his dream. Challenge. Obstacles. Kindness. Integrity. Friendship. Adventure around the world. Determination. Cheating. Lies. Pride. Overcoming fear. Romantic pursuit. Fantastic computer animation. Interesting characters. For example, Sinbad is the voice of Roper, a hot-tempered race official full of sly remarks. Planes is filled with nonstop action, great music, and plenty of humor. And it's so cool to watch it in 3D; I felt like I was flying in the sky with those planes. Lots of fun!
