Don't bother

Saw this in 3D - took my grandchildren. The graphics were good and entertaining - but the plot and dialogue were nothing more than typical political correctness: global warming, military generals as evil, etc. Why can't Hollywood keep their politics to themselves and just entertain. Who cares what they think?

escape to planet earth

This is a brainless film, almost entirely lacking in imagination, It's so derivative but without adding anything to its sources. The adult wisecracking over the heads of kids is lame, stale and predictable. Everything about this film is formulaic. And the endless violence is offensive, since this film is being marketed to young children. The family relationships are shallow. The humiliation between silblings, while "resolved" at the end, falls short of any true emotional understanding. As grandparents, we have seen many children's films with our grandkids. Our 8-year old granddaughter said she "liked" the film, but she said not a word about it afterwards, a sure sign that it meant nothing to her. The creative team at Dreamworks has done, and I'm sure can do, better.

Good but not great

Some great voice performances (Brendan Fraser, Sarah Jessica Parker and especially William Shatner)graced this animated film, but the story was not all that hot. My nine-year-old granddaughter was bored well before the end.

Good for kids...

My 8 year olds enjoyed Escape From Planet Earth and actually so did I. It was cute, had a good storyline, not a lot of adult humor, and a good voice cast. We recommend it!

Entertaining for kids, too generic and dumb for adults....

This KIDS film is SO predictable and SO generic it makes me want to throw my popcorn at the screen. I have seen the boasting hero that never listens and the nerdy brother all the time. The acting is mostly based on the bad writing in this movie. The animation is good to look at but still, even that doesn't excuse the movie from being bad. The character designs are generic. The main aliens look like the designs of Megamind and Planet 51 had a baby but the movie came out of the bad moments of Monsters vs. Aliens. This movie is annoying. Good for kids, not so funny for adults 2/10. (I hated this movie.)
