Number of Times Seen – 1 (3 Nov 2013)
Brief Synopsis – A crop-dusting plane who dreams of traveling the world, decided to compete in a race around the world
My Take on it – I watched this movie assuming it was a PIXAR film and was so unimpressed since I have come to expect more from a PIXAR movie.
Only after it ended did I realize that it was a Disney film set in the world of Cars (2006).
Big Disappointment from that perspective 😦
The animation, story and visuals are all above average, but no where near the standard that PIXAR has set for the animation genre.
The voice acting is mostly unrecognizable which is sometimes a plus and other times a minus. Here I don’t think it matters either way.
I actually liked the way they created this world with the majority of the inhabitants still cars and the planes are just another “race” I guess. I would be interested in exploring this world a bit more, but it seems lately that too much animation has been geared towards the racing genre.
I don’t think it matters whether the racing is by cars, planes, trains or anything else, it’s a theme that has been over-used.
Bottom Line – Not as good as Pixar predecessors from within the same world. The animation and story are above average but nowhere near the quality expected now-a-days from the animation genre.
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
