Escape from Planet Earth (2013), a great adventure for the whole family
Animations are fun to watch with the whole family and the 2013 Canadian animation, Escape from Planet Earth is one such film.
It stars comic Brendan Fraser, Rob Cordry, Sarah Jessica Parker, William Shatner, Jessica Alba, Craig Robinson, Ricky Gervais and a few others.
The story focuses on the relationship of the Supernova family. Brothers, Scorch (Fraser) and Gary (Cordry) are constantly fighting although deep beneath their blue alien skin is deep love for each other. However, when Scorch decides to go on a mission to Earth without the approval and support of Gary, he ends up getting captured in Area 51.
Escape from Planet Earth is the first film released by Rainmaker Entertainment which was formerly known as Mainframe Entertainment Inc which produced the Barbie animation series.
There are moments in the animation that literally take your breath away especially toward the end of the film. It seems almost a heart wrenchingly funny moments when the brothers fall to the Earth after fighting their nemesis General Skanker; played by the original Captain James Kirk himself, William Shatner.
While the film is colorful, the soundtrack is even more amazing with tracks like Shooting Star by Owl City, Shine Supernova by Cody Simpson and Give Me Your Hand (Best Song Ever) by The Ready Set that I still can’t get out of my head.
Escape from Planet Earth is a great adventure that the family can enjoy together.
