Here’s another blog from a Mississauga Chiropractor


Just watched Escape from Planet Earth (2013), staring Brendan Fraser (The Mummy), Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City), Jessica Alba (Dark Angel) & Sofía Vergara (Modern Family)

On the planet Baab, admired astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser) is a national hero to the blue alien population. A master of daring rescues, Scorch pulls off astonishing feats with the quiet aid of his nerdy, by-the-rules brother, Gary Supernova (Rob Corddry), head of mission control at BASA. When BASA’s no-nonsense chief Lena Thackleman (Jessica Alba) informs the brothers of an SOS from a notoriously dangerous planet, Scorch rejects Gary‘s warnings and bounds off for yet another exciting mission. But when Scorch finds himself caught in a fiendsh trap set by the evil General Shanker (William Shatner) it’s up to scrawny, risk-adverse Gary to do the real rescuing. As the interplanetary stakes rise to new heights, Gary is left to save his brother, his planet, his beloved wife Kira Supernova (Sarah Jessica Parker) and their adventure hungry son Kip Supernova (Jonathan Morgan Heit).

This computer-animated film was just mildly entertaining, and was trying a bit too hard to be funny.  The story was your typical alien capture by a secret government agency, revealing the secret alien jail were countless number of aliens were kept and studied. There wasn’t a lot going on that really grabbed your attention, and I found myself sitting in the theatre just waiting for the closing credits to start rolling.  Both my kids enjoyed the movie though, so I guess it’s geared more towards kids, but they did try to add some adult reference humour.

Overall, I would give this movie 4/10 stars.  Wait for the DVD or television version.  Happy Viewing
