General Gist: The second Planes movie where Dusty trains to be a firefighter after getting injured and isn't able to race anymore.
I didn't see the first Planes so I was going into this one sort of blind and I can't really compare it to the first one. I went with some kids that were pretty darn excited to see it though.
From the kids' perspective, this was a hit for the 4 year old boy who is a Planes die hard fan. It was an entertaining one for the 9 year old boy who was once a Cars die hard fan. It was a little long for the 6 year old girl who has never been a big fan of either Cars or Planes.
From my perspective, it was entertaining with fun parts throughout but a little on the long side. It was also surprisingly serious for a cartoon. There were a few heavy subjects that might be a little much for sensitive, younger kids. The original Cars is still probably my favorite.
