Cute for the kids

Kinda cute story with good CGI and action throughout. Great movie to entertain the kids but dont expect the adults to be too enthralled. Lived up to what I expected it to be... a mid range kids movie.

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.

If your goal is to keep them entertained the kids liked this movie. The story was child appropriate with some grown up appeal. It was nice family movie.

Escape Fom Planet Earth

Overall good 'kid-flick' without insulting the intelligence. Good fun, and good to hear some familiar voices. Includes a recognition of some of us 'old-timers' by having a nod to the Beatles. Clean, funny, tried-and-true plot with a new twist. Might be worth saving the theatre money and simply buying it when it comes out.

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.
