Editorial Reviews

The 3D animated family comedy catapults moviegoers to planet Baab where admired astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser) is a national hero to the blue alien population. A master of daring rescues, Scorch pulls off astonishing feats with the quiet aid of his nerdy, by-the-rules brother, Gary (Rob Corddry), head of mission control at BASA. When BASA’s no-nonsense chief Lena (Jessica Alba) informs the brothers of an SOS from a notoriously dangerous planet, Scorch rejects Gary’s warnings and bounds off for yet another exciting mission. But when Scorch finds himself caught in a fiendish trap set by the evil Shanker (William Shatner) it’s up to scrawny, risk-adverse Gary to do the real rescuing. As the interplanetary stakes rise to new heights, Gary is left to save his brother, his planet, his beloved wife Kira (Sarah Jessica Parker) and their adventure hungry son Kip.

The beginning of the year is a slow time for the PG regular movie-going crowd. Family-friendly movies are more sparse, and GOOD family movies are a downright rarity. Which has never made much sense to me, since in the cold winter, going to the movies is one of the few (somewhat) affordable things to do with kids. So, we were excited when Escape From Planet Earth came out and we had high hopes that it was going to be a good watch.

It was a nice story about two very different but close brothers who have to learn how to be themselves while also letting the other one shine. Anyone who has more than one kid would probably agree that they watch their own children struggle with this quite often, so I liked the message behind the movie.

The other positives:
the animation is great (but nothing we haven't seen), it's colorful, appropriate for young kids, and has a few laughable scenes sparringly scattered throughout.

The not-so positives:
It's extremely predictable. Yes, it's a kids movie. But does that mean it has to be a generic kids movie? My kids appreciate something original just as much as I do. Unfortunately, being formulaic means despite its best efforts, it gets pretty boring most of the time. I had to take away my 10 year old's itouch because she kept going on it and my 7 year old son was more entertained by playing with his 3D glasses and the seat. They don't demonstrate poor behavior during movie showings, we go all the time. So when they get this distracted, I know that they're getting just as bored as I am.

The movie TRIES to engage parents, even reaching as far as staging a good old fashioned Mommy-War in there...

This movie was fun to go watch, albeit a little slow starting out. Being a geek myself, I enjoyed watching a movie where the geeky engineer is the protagonist, gets (already has) the girl, and saves the day. Escape from Planet Earth is a pretty predictable movie, but what would you expect from a children's movie. I enjoyed the fact that almost every alien stereotype and conspiracy theory is addressed as the source of comedy in the movie (i.e. - the road signs stating that Gary Supernova was entering and leaving area 48, 49, and 50 before "entering" area 51). Although a movie made for children, Escape from Planet Earth is a good movie for the young at heart as well. It seems like not many family movies now days actually contain an entire family, but this movie does. It also focuses on the tight-knit cohesiveness of the family unit and brings to the surface the fact that we would do almost anything for family.

The reason I rate it 4 stars is that, as I stated before, it is slow-moving. I would have expected a little quicker plot, as the title and movie artwork would suggest. However, I feel that the moral of the story, combined with the humor, overcome the pace. It really is an enjoyable movie, though it might be better to go to a matinee or wait for it to be released to video.

Honestly, I did not expect much from this film. Watched it with my daughter and was pleasantly surprised. The cast is incredible, so the voice-acting always entertains. There are quite a few amusing lines and funny interactions. The characters are unique and lovable. Ricky Gervais as the computer really cracked me up. Craig Robinson's alien is also very funny. Of course, Shatner is an excellent villain.

The visuals are enthralling. Really cool technology, ships, aliens, monsters, etc. It keeps you watching.

The story is different, if a little predictable. But it's a kids' movie. Really well-done too. If your kids enjoyed Monsters Inc., Ice Age, or Madagascar, this movie will do the trick. It deserves a sequel.

BUY IT. Good movie.

I took my boys to see this movie at the theater and we loved it, so much so that we couldn't wait for it to come out on DVD. My 4 year old laughed hysterically at different parts, and honestly he probably didn't understand half of it. The characters were memorable ones that each had their own unique personalities. The movie is about two brothers, one a hero and the other the computer nerd. The computer nerd handles Mission Control and has a son who idolizes his brother the hero. After Scorch goes on a mission to the dangerous planet (Earth) he gets captured. Gary (computer nerd) goes on a rescue mission to save his brother and show his family that he is a hero too! On Earth the brothers are forced to do the bidding of building a weapon to destroy other planets. There are other aliens in the movie and they are hysterical! I honestly haven't seen a good kids movie in a long time and this one was worth it. It was about 1 hour 30 minutes and we will definitely watch again when it comes to DVD. I don't feel either that there was anything inappropriate for young kids, but yet it is still a movie that will appeal to all ages.

This movie was so cute that I had to get it. I like some of the new ones like this and in good taste for my 9 year old niece to see, when she visits me. They are not violent like as some are and without foul words people use as everyday language.
The storyline is good and so are the affects. It's fun to watch with family or yourself. It's like the old Disney movies for the family and the very young children, The affects are more up dated of today's ways of movie making. I enjoyed it and maybe you might too when you see it. (JV).
