The story follows a planet Baab where a reputed astronaut Scorch Supernova Played by Brendan Fraser, who is a national hero for the blue alien population. Scorch is master of daring rescues; he pulls off impressing feats with the quiet help of his obsessive brother, Gary played by Rob Corddry, head of mission control at BASA.

The film has fun and colors; however, it does not bring anything new to the table. It is entertaining without any disappointment. There is not much violence, very mild. Many of the references given in the movie might go over children’s head while adults will laugh though it was pretty good.

Though we have a 3D version of this movie, there isn’t much 3D in it. The voices are by The Mummy actor Brendan Fraser as Scorch Supernova, comedian Rob Corddry as Gary Supernova and multitalented Ricky Gervais as Mr. James Bing.

Every actor has given a brilliant to the character with their voice. The concept of the movie was borrowed from Men in Black, but it turned out to be less interesting and could not touch that benchmark set by Men in Black.

One cannot ignore the possession of the high level of imagination and smoothness in this film. However, if the one thing that seems to hit with here is the level of surprise, style, and motion in this picture.

The other half of the movie after the break is a bit uninteresting. However, there was never a dull moment here, and the music is really good, it sets the tone for every scene. Each character is very much different from each other, and their rapport is stimulating. Escape from Planet Earth is not a great movie, but it isn’t bad either. Refreshing movie to see on a rainy weekend or day off from school.
