Planet 51 – Movie Review
American astronaut Captain Charles “Chuck” Baker lands on Planet 51 thinking he’s the first person to step foot on it. To his surprise, he finds that this planet is inhabited by little green people who are happily living in a white picket fence world, and whose only fear is that it will be overrun by alien invaders…like Chuck!
Planet 51 is kind of an odd animation film because ostensibly it’s for kids, but it has such a politically subversive message that it’s hard to review as a strictly kids film and even kids will probably pick it up. But I actually sort of liked it. The idea is that aliens invaded an alien planet and one of the aliens is actually an earthling because depending on where you’re from, alien is in the eye of the invader. So I actually would give it two and half stars.
