In space, no one can hear you snore. The new animated flick Escape From Planet Earth is predictable and plain, but even movies that share those traits—probably a fourth of all studio pictures in any year—can find something interesting to cook up over the course of 90 minutes. That’s the oddity of Planet Earth: It’s complete science fiction, yet nobody, at any point, holds our interest. They couldn’t even invent something compelling. Names like Scorch Supernova and Gabby Babblebrock litter the script, and the characters are so typical that there aren’t any surprises whatsoever. Scorch, obviously, is heroic. His brother Gary Supernova, obviously, is not. So who will save the day? Man … it’s quite a mystery. If there was something positive to say about the animation, maybe we’d have something. But even that is as lifeless as everything else.
