‘Escape from Planet Earth’ crashes on planet bland

DVD Review

(Continued)

emann@pvdemocrat.com —

Granted, there are a few laughs here and there worth a tip of the hat, but it’s not a good sign if you have trouble staying awake and stop caring about even the main characters half way through. Even the villain is rather yawn inducing and gives one the impression Shatner was under the orders to suddenly be underwhelmingly dramatic.

I suppose the youngest audience members would enjoy the ride, but anyone over the age of 10 might quickly lose interest as well and it might only be worth renting if you haven’t seen everything else family friendly. It just felt flat and is one of the most forgettable of the genre in recent memory. It’s worth one and a half out of five galaxies.
