We received a copy of Planes Fire and Rescue to watch and review. Opinions are 100% our own.
As a family we enjoyed the first Planes movie. The kids have requested to watch it many times. I enjoyed it and found it funny and pretty decent overall. I’m not a big fan of Dane Cook, now. When I was in college he came and performed and was hilarious. That was well before his mega tour and everything that came after that. I remember him as a funny guy who did this whole dinosaur bit that had us rolling. He does a good job in the Planes movies as Dusty Crophopper. The kids don’t care about anything outside of the movie and they love Dusty.
So, in Planes Fire and Rescue we have Dusty back home, he’s become very famous and popular. He still races but finds out that his gearbox is starting to fail and if he pushes things he’s going to crash. He’s an older model plane and so there is no gearbox around to be found to replace his faulty one. Dusty can no longer redline it and so he can’t race. He starts to feel sorry for himself and through a series of events he inadvertently causes a fire at Propwash Junction. This sheds a light on the fact that there is an outdated fire safety issue and this threatens to shut down the place and their annual corn festival.
