Somehow, this sequel to a rubbish spin-off to a rubbish sequel to a so-so cartoon is actually pretty good. With all the
comparisons taken care of in the first
, the second movie gets a complete respray, taking hotshot yokel plane Dusty Crophopper (Dane Cook) out of the air-racing circuit and into the wilderness to fight forest fires alongside a gruff old helicopter (Ed Harris).
Disney Toon Studios is still a long way behind Pixar, but slick effects, exciting set-pieces and a cast of vehicular characters actually worth caring about are at least a swerve in the right direction.
