Ok, the movie has nice characters and a rather pleasing storyline, but it is defintely aimed at a younger audience than the cars movies. It's biggest selling point is that John lasseter..the Pixar guy helped write/produce the story so there are some nice touches. But it's certainly no Pixar production. This could be due to it originally being sculpted as a straight to dvd/home movie release.
Ok... Now the 3d. Honestly it isn't great... The movie looks rather flat and unrendered, with the of exception of when is snowing or the rain/sea storm scenes. The rest is rather disappointing. This could be due to it not actually being made in 3d perhaps and it being added as an after thought. But I believe all Disney produced movies do this most likely as a way to save prediction costs.
If you're buying for small kids, im pretty sure they'll enjoy it, but as an adult and big time animation addict I was very disappointed. The Voice acting is rather good, but it lacks the tongue in cheek appeal like cars did and other Pixar movies.
It is however very watchable but almost like a copy of the first cars movie on premise (if you replace planes for cars). Pretty much the same story but everything including the characters come across as rather one dimensional, such a shame as it really could've been something as special.
I've given a 3 star as I do love Disney and I love animation, but it just lacked that special Disney essence, again probably because it's really a TV movie as opposed to a big release cinema production.
I was 'tricked' into buying this DVD by the preview of a prop plane taking off from a battleship.
What I expected I didn't know,but it sure wasn't what followed.Good animation though.
I like the idea of mini forklifts being 'carried' over from the Cars movie,they're good minions,etc.
They certainly help sell how changes and maintenance 'occur' to machines.I guess they're here to stay.
The comic turns of the Mexican plane are very entertaining and reminded me of the film Despicable Me.
