Trivia

The "red stuff" being dropped from the airplanes is Long Term Fire Retardant called PHOS-CHeK. It has been used by the US Forest Service for 50 years and is used to create a containment line around a wildfire. It is dropped as a liquid and will remain effective until it is washed off by heavy rain. The red color is used so pilots can see where to drop the next load to tie in with the line of previous drops. See more »

Goofs

During the lodge evacuation scene there is a biplane trying to get its engine started so it can take off. The propeller blades on the biplane are obviously pitched in the wrong direction to pull the airplane forward with the engine running and would push it backwards instead. See more »

Predictable but not bad
23 July 2014 | by ianbergSee all my reviews

It had a predictable ending however there was enough humor and action throughout to make this an enjoyable Saturday matinée for my wife, our toddler-aged children and myself. I actually enjoyed this more than the original Planes. I laughed out loud when "Boat Reynolds" was introduced. Overall a very happy movie. Even the villain of the movie doesn't seem that upset with his lot in life at the end. Fantastic visuals during the third act. The continuing adventures of the plane could be turned into a TV series that my kids would want to watch. The only thing controversial in this movie would be the green helicopter that speaks with a Native American accent and only seems to say clichés like you would hear from Tonto of the Lone Ranger.
