Planet 51

BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Is there such a thing as too much of a good thing? Why yes, there is. If Americans are guilty of over-indulgence, then certainly Hollywood is the main proprietor of it. Right? Perhaps one of the best things that’s happened to films in the last two decades is the advent of computer animation in films. Pixar studios have set the bar so unseeingly high for this genre of film that it forces the impostors (and they’re out there) to do a lot in terms of making their movies.

Planet 51 Review

DoBlu

  • Excerpt: Planet 51 knows nothing of Earth. The inhabitants have never heard of it, and think the galaxy is only five hundred miles long. However, major Earth corporations have oddly sprung up on 51, complete with their same familiar branding, logos, and colors. Kelloggs advertises on comic books, and Volkswagen powers their hover cars. That is just one part of Planet 51 that lacks creativity.

Planet 51

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: So, as a parent you'll be bored stiff. This is one of those films you put on as an electronic babysitter, and not so much as a way to spend some quality family time with your kids. Both the audio and video are impressive and will likely keep children entertained for the duration. But, the question is, why would you have your kids watch this when they could easily watch a much superior animated film like 'Up,' or the upcoming ' Fantastic Mr. Fox ?

Planet 51 Blu-ray Review

BigPictureBigSound
8 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The Film From the opening sequence, which is essentially a movie-within-a-movie, Planet 51 (a play on the mysterious Area 51, get it?) is anything but subtle. It conjures up memories of why spoofs of B-movies ( Mars Attack for one) aren't all that funny. This one attempts to play to kids by featuring Disney/Pixar-style animation while telling the story of an alien landing on a peaceful planet that is straight out of the 1950s.

Planet 51

Cinema Blend

  • Excerpt: I don’t care how mature you are--everyone loves a good cartoon once in a while. Sometimes you just need to leave the adult world behind and relax with some youthful hilarity. The problem with Planet 51 is it’s not youthful, it’s infantile. Planet 51 is so inane that not only is adult enjoyment unattainable, even younger audiences will be on to its lack of intelligence and novelty.

  • Summary: Although this animated film turns the stereotypical alien invasion scenario on its head, the tale itself is old hat.

  • Excerpt: Through the same mysterious alchemy that gave the moviegoing public back-to-back CGI insect adventures ( A Bug’s Life and Antz ), deep-sea fish adventures ( Finding Nemo and Shark Tale ), and films about escaped zoo animals returning to nature ( Madagascar and The Wild ), 2009 has produced two films about peaceful alien civilizations disrupted by human invaders.

  • Summary: ”Planet 51” ger alla barn en chans uppleva den svunna känslan av 50-talet. De äldre ges en chans att återuppleva de kulturella höjdpunkterna, paketerat på ett barnvänligt sätt. Problemet är dock att varken de äldre eller de yngre känner sig helt nöjda, det blir något mittemellan.

  • Conclusion: Tänk om det fanns en annan planet i universum där det gick omkring små Shrek-gröna gubbar och levde ungefär som vi gjorde på 50-talet och oroade sig för att det skulle komma utomjordingar till deras planet? I Planet 51 så är det själva grundstoryn. Man vill helt enkelt vända på begreppet som vi sett i mängder med sci fi-filmer. Denna gången är det inte utomjordingar som kommer till jorden utan det människan som är utomjordingen som kommer och invaderar en annan planet.

Film: Planet 51

14 January 2010
  • Excerpt: Planet 51 bebos av små gröna män och kvinnor med bilar som susar nån decimeter över gatan och när det regnar kommer det sten istället för vatten. I övrigt är det väldigt likt jorden som den såg ut i USA på 50-talet. Ja, man talar till och med vårt språk. Hit kommer en dag jordastronauten Chuck och vållar rabalder.
