Format: Blu-ray
Planet 51 is a fantastic send-up of the 50's sci-fi mentality - where a contemporary, self-loving astronaut (hilariously voiced by Dwayne Johnson) arrives in a foreign world, and is the alien. Thankfully, the "star" voices are well-suited (not distracting), and this animated treat is good fun for the whole family. Additional material on the blu-ray are a game, a couple of deleted scenes and some brief featurettes. (There is also a french-only interview segment with those specific artists.) Overall, this underrated and often-hilarious film deserves to be more popular. (4 1/2 stars)

Although I didn't recognize any of the producers of this movie, We still took a chance to buy it to see what it was like. My husband and I both watched it and found we really liked it. For the price we paid for it, it was definitely worthwhile to have for our library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated gem...too subtle for some? Feb. 7 2010
By JHD - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
'Planet 51' was the last thing showing at our local theatre that I hadn't already seen. The previews and lobby displays (mis)led me to believe it was just another throwaway kids' cartoon, full of forced cuteness, predictable gags, and cardboard characters; but I had time to kill and the ticket was at matinee price, so I finally went in. Am I ever glad I did!

The obvious send-up of 1950s American culture is fun, and so is the shoe-on-the-other-foot twist of the human being viewed as the fearful alien menace, but if that's all a viewer takes away, he or she is missing a lot. There was plenty of unexpected satire that had me laughing out loud through much of the film. There is also a profound message that centering one's society around perpetual fear can cause more harm to a culture's core values than the thing being feared; however, the message very carefully doesn't get in the way of the humanity (alienity?) of the story.

The music was well done and really enhanced the fun. Visually, I loved the film. Character design wasn't anything particularly special, but the look of the planet itself was gorgeous. This is a cartoon, after all, not an overblown CGI extravanganza like Avatar, so you shouldn't expect photorealistic rendering of every tiny detail. The beauty of this kind of artwork is in the imaginative forms and colors, the simplicity of shapes and lines that enhance the story, not overwhelm it.

Actually, having brought the subject up, I suppose many comparisons and contrasts could be drawn that make Planet 51 a kind of Anti-Avatar. Here, the humans are neither conquering villains, nor paternalistic hero figures. People--er, beings--from both sides have to do their part on Planet 51 to bridge the misunderstanding of cultures and enable goodwill to prevail. That may not be the kind of dramatic plot it takes to engage some viewers' attention these days, yet it's exactly the sort of solid but gentle storytelling one should expect from the offspring of George Harrison's Handmade Films.

Plus, so far as I can tell, no one has yet suffered depression after viewing Planet 51. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun featurette for an equally fun movie! July 26 2016
By Samantha Spaulding - Published on
Verified Purchase
This featurette is about 15 minutes long and is mostly interviews with the actors who do the voices of the Planet 51 characters. It has trivia pop-ups on the side about the movie and lots of fun talk from the stars of the movie such as The Rock, Jessica Biel, Justin Long, as well as some of the directors and animators.

Watching the featurette was pretty fun because it lets you see how the actors got entirely into character. My favorite was watching The Rock be the astronaut because he in so animated, even when just standing at a microphone - it's awesome to see him work!

I think this featurette is fun for kids - mine are 10 and 12 and really thought it was cool to see - especially if they love the movie and want to see some behind-the-scenes goings on.

4.0 out of 5 stars I did NOT receive what I ordered. Buyer beware. Feb. 10 2016
By Living in the desert - Published on
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
The movie is good. But understand that if you're buying it to have a digital copy (I was, the whole reason I purchased it), you won't get one even if it says you will. Sticker on the outside says the redemption code is expired. Great. Just great. :(
5.0 out of 5 stars Fun to see the actors Aug. 7 2016
By Jenlol - Published on

I didn't realize that this wasn't the movie when I ordered it. It was pretty interesting seeing the actors talk about the movie and I didn't realize some of the voices who are actors that I love. I don't normally pay much attention to credit unless I recognize my voice, so that was kind of neat seeing their views on the film and it was fun for me to watch. My kids were completely uninterested when they realized it wasn't the movie. We actually have this movie on DVD, but I just wanted it on Amazon so they could do it easily on their tablets. Would have been great if it was the movie, but the little bit that was within this featurette was nice to watch.

Cute movie about an astronaut who lands on an aliens planet. Where most of them react the way we would but the meets a friendly little alien who decides to help him repair his ship and get back home. They have some cute adventures along the way, I would say this movie is good for 4-6 year olds.
