Tremendous disappointment. I went in thinking this was going to be a Pixar offshoot of the cars franchise. This is a Disney slapped together, pull money out of Mom and Dad's wallets. The story is below formulaic, it is basically a paper cut out. Believe in yourself and you can accomplish anything wrapped in googly eyed air craft, that's it.
I can't believe John Lassiter of Pixar helmed this.
The only thing this movie is good for is keeping very young kids entertained.
I wish I would have walked out and asked for a refund.

It was good, but the thing that we like the most was de the Mexican plane, with out that I don't think we will love the same.

A delightful romp of a movie. The characters are pleasant ensemble of international personalities. El Chupacabra was by far my favorite character. A most colorful and singularly unique persona.
Of course, as one might expect, all of the characters are presented well and join to create a very enjoyable experience.
I found one technical incongruity in the movie. When the movie recanted the flashback of Skipper's recovery from his WWII mission, it showed a modern day aircraft carrier picking him up; and with fellow Corsairs on the deck. There may have been more, but this is the one 'big' goof that stuck with me throughout the rest of the movie.
I was nice to see some characters from the movie Cars appearing in this movie. For instance, it looked like Lightning McQueen in the row of photographers at the beginning of one of the races. The presence of the Winnebago fan was also a welcome sight.
The 'kid' in everyone should definitely enjoy this movie.

Awesome movie!!! My grandson and I loved it. The cinematography was excellent. The storyline kept us interested and it also taught many lessons for a young person. Would love to see it again. Can't wait for the DVD version.

Took my 5 year old grandson to see it and he loved it. If they are a Cars fan, your kids will love this one too. The underdog triumphs and it has a feel good ending.
