Planet 51


USA 2009, 91 minutes
Dir. Jorge Blanco, Javier Abad
Rating: [G]
Genres: Family, Science Fiction / Animation, Outer Space

Topics: Timewarp.


Aroview: Cosmic comedy sees a less-than-stellar astronaut land on supposedly uninhabited Planet 51 only to find little green people living in what appears to be 1950's America.

While a perfectly solid and diverting animated feature, it fails to distinguish itself in a crowded field of animated charmers, so its premise and personalities feel a little second hand. Highlights are the "cylindrical" production design and a lovable robot dog.

Voices by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Jessica Biel, Justin Long, Gary Oldman, Seann William Scott, John Cleese.
