      Mark Kermode Observer (UK) This is very much by-numbers pre-teen fare, spiced up by the sound of William Shatner enjoying himself. Rated: 3/5 Mar 9, 2014 Full Review Mike McCahill Guardian Its secret weapon is a satirically inclined script, reworked by Stephen Fry among others, that disrupts the general factory-line vibe with regular funny lines. Rated: 3/5 Mar 7, 2014 Full Review Keith Staskiewicz Entertainment Weekly An animated film that goes lamely where many have gone before. Rated: C- Mar 18, 2013 Full Review Sarah Gopaul Digital Journal Outside of a couple of brief lulls, there isn't much to complain about. Oct 22, 2018 Full Review Graham Young Birmingham Mail One only has to think of Battlefield Earth and After Earth to realise that putting the name of our planet into a movie title isn't always a good idea. Happily, Escape From Planet Earth is a reasonable exception. Rated: 3/5 Oct 10, 2014 Full Review Jason Best Movie Talk The animation is hardly out of this world, but a script polish from Stephen Fry and others means that there is a sprinkling of good gags to accompany the siblings' adventures.

      Isaac F It's is written greatly. There are a few bumps as like scorch really only getting his character arch in the last 20-30 minutes. Watching this as a kid and now a teen, would watch this every day.. animation still lives up to today. Humor is great and the dark parts were very well placed and written. Over all very good movie, if this was a pixar movie or dreamworks it would probably get five stars. Oh and don't forget the score! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Liam D This is the worst kind of animated movie. Just a mindless film that's only for kids with an wasted voice cast Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Isaac P Escape from Planet Earth. Escape from Planet Earth. Escape from Planet Earth.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/03/24 Full Review Aliyah K ABSOLUTLKEY GOBSMACKINGLY FANTASTICLY CINEMATICALLY FANTABULOUS. I remember being young and absolutely LOVING THIS MOVIE. For the longest time I couldn't remember the name of this movie, all I could remember was the two blue aliens who changed my life. After years and years of google searches, I finally stumbled upon the movie that shaped my child hood. I would 100% recommend this movie to anyone of all ages. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/19/23 Full Review Chase B Pretty good and would highly recommend for younger audiences. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/06/23 Full Review Emilliano Jr S The movie theme might not be appropriate for kids. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews
