14, Planet 51

This movie puts a unique twist on Humans being the Alien race to a planet in total harmony with BBQ's, Jobs, Homes and flying cars.

Planet 51 is a futuristic world currently experiencing the 1950's with a space age theme. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is the Astronaut sent by us to seek new worlds and what he discovers is a civilised, modern(ish) race of green family's who see Humans as the alien race and treat them as we would if funny green men suddenly turned up.

Animated and in 2D it seemed a little dated compared to recent movies but kept the audience attention and was comical in places.

I don't feel the need to go on too much about this one, it was cute, cuddly and the younger kids will love it.

The "Rock" was nothing special and fell into yet another run of the mill kids flick only by being animated the famous "eyebrow" was not on show - and how it was missed!!

The animation is on the same level as Toy Story and its only redeeming feature is its managed to find an original plot line in relation to planet 51 being the base and we are the aliens, other than that, quite mediocre.

See this if..............The kids want to.
