My Review of Planet 51

By Tobyjam
Written November 23, 2009
With the avalanche of CG animated movies, I appreciate when a good one comes along. The animation and graphic quality in Planet 51 were smooth and I enjoyed a lot of the "little" touches like backlighting and consistent light-sourcing. The voice acting was enjoyable, but not over the top, which has been the case in quite a few of the CG animated features. The "in jokes" and sci-fi and pop culture references were funny, but I'm afraid that there were too many of them that the kids in the audience couldn't catch, which resulted in a great deal of the movie being a bit beyond their reach. My 13 year old son spent a lot of time whispering in my ear, asking "What did they mean by that?" I recommend this film to anyone who appreciates the old sci-fi paranoia flicks of the 50's, and who is old enough to appreciate the references and in-jokes, otherwise you'll spend a lot of the movie more or less narating it to your kids.

Took my two boys, they had a blast, and were able to sit thru the whole movie which is rare for them.

for children it was a fair to good movie. there was alot of action and futuristic ideas.for adults there were a few moments of adult humor, otherwise it was a real sleeper. i took the opportunity to take 45 minute nap. i would reccomend that you wait for it to come out on dvd. the soundtrack is a must ,especially if you like 50's music.

Fun for the Kids!

I took a party of 13 children to this movie - there were laughing, interacting and responding to the characters! Some of lines were just a copy of others films, however, to the kids it was all new. It was incredibly entertaining and light-hearted; with an important message to all to embrace the unknown (it might actually end up being friendly!).
