After winning a big race around the world, the simple spray plane Dusty (spoken by Martin Halm) has become a famous racing plane. Dusty is literally flying high and nothing can stop him. But then his gearbox breaks down and every race could mean its end. Since his model has not been produced for a long time, it seems almost impossible to get spare parts. But there's hardly any time to let the wings hang, because when the Propwash runway almost burns down in an accident, a new firefighter has to come in so that the air traffic can continue here. For Dusty it is clear that he will step in here as long as he is not allowed to fly races. But to become a real fire engine, Dusty first has to train with the grumpy rescue helicopter Blade Ranger (Henning Baum) and his team in the Piston-Peak National Park. And that turns out to be much more difficult than initially thought. But just when Dusty is about to give up, he has to prove his heroism in order not only to save his new friends in the National Park…
As early as one year after the first use of his airplane on the big screen, Dusty brings "Planes 2 - Immer im Einsatz", the sequel to the Disney movie, into the cinemas. It's hardly surprising that not as much care and budget was invested in this "Cars" spin-off as in the popular Pixar cars. In the first movie this wasn't only shown in the somewhat lovelessly drawn characters, but also in the less original story, which was basically only an airy version of the story of "Cars 2". At least that's what's been changed about part two. And even though the story of "Planes 2 - Immer im Einsatz" still won't win a prize for outstanding originality, the attempt to tell something new is absolutely praiseworthy.
Especially since fire fighting in the national park doesn't only offer some really great visual moments. Planes 2" is also clearly superior in terms of tension. At least small fans of the "Cars" and "Planes" universe will get their money's worth in these adventures. The humor is very simple and kept very child-friendly over long distances. The exciting scenes are exciting, but not too scary. The characters are nicely animated and the backgrounds partly look really great in 3D. Disney and Pixar films are usually characterized by the fact that they are not just children's films, but fun for the whole family. This is not the case with Planes 2. Similar to the "Tinkerbell" films, the adventures of the talking airplanes are clearly aimed at a very young target audience, who are not bothered by the fact that these works lack the finesse of great Disney movies.
Who doesn't expect more than a harmless cinema adventure and doesn't measure "Planes 2" against its big brother "Cars" will certainly be well entertained by Dusty's training as a fire-fighting aircraft. No flight of fancy, but in any case a nice children's film - no more, but also no less. And for that there is a target group specific: Worth seeing!
