Harry W (es) wrote: Serving as a critically and commercially successful Australian film, Paper Planes sounded like a delightful romp.The thing about Paper Planes is that for better and for worse, it is a children's film. In that sense, it doesn't break much new ground but rather it relies heavily on familiarity to construct it. While it is not without its charms, Paper Planes is a thoroughly predictable film all throughout. There are some points where you'd think it could take a clever spin on the same underdog genre that Rocky spawned in 1976 and that has been replicated by countless sports films ever since, but in actual fact it stays as formulaic as possible to the point that its plot dynamics will be borderline cringe worthy for the most critical of viewers. I tried hard to sit back and embrace this and look at it more for the elements of childish charm, but it really is a challenge for me to look beyond how heavily predictable Paper Planes is. Children are more likely to sit back and embrace it so I cannot be too harsh on the film, but I guess it is rather esoteric in many ways. As well as that, much of the plot seems really forced. Adding to the formulaic nature of the story, Paper Planes just piles on a lot of things to encourage its sense of artificiality. When I say that I make no complaint about the visual effects being used in substitute of physical paper planes, but rather the abundance of melodrama that surrounds everything. There is only so far you can go with a premise about paper planes, and so to appeal to the childish side of audiences I would say that the best manner of achieving that is through a sense of comic relief. And in all fairness, Paper Planes does have some funny moments thanks predominantly to the charm of some of its cast member. The problem I have with the narrative is just how much melodrama seems to have been pushed into the plot. The film is about a child whose mother has died and whose father has given up hope which leaves him to find solace only in the creative outlet of competitive paper planes, and through that he meets a female companion who he develops a friendship with all while challenging an obnoxious bully. Its formulaic stuff, and the film lays it on heavily while briefly ducking away to put a few jokes in there. I liked the humour, but I needed more of it because there was a real surplus of melodrama in Paper Planes, and the screenplay just didn't do it for me. I found a lot of the language in the film to be artificial and forced, making the narrative even harder to get around. All in all, Paper Planes is really so implausible in so many ways that at best it works as an inspiring fantasy for young viewers, and that is the part I respect about it. The one dramatic element of Paper Planes that I admired was the way that it put a spin on the conventions of a father-son story. Even though it was a bit forced, the narrative in Paper Planes does have a touching sentiment in the way that it depicts the relationship between Dylan and Jack. In contrast to the traditional way that a father comes and rescues his son from sadness or the son learns to be his own man, Paper Planes shows Jack as a father who is so depressed and lost that he realizes it is he who needs his son to stay with him. Dylan is the one who realizes his responsibility to his father, and it is a really nice spin on convention which plays on the sense of responsibility to family felt by younger viewers. It is the one piece of melodrama which works really well in Paper Planes.And thanks to Robert Connolly's fine work as director, Paper Planes is just genuinely a nice film to experience. In contrast to his hard hitting work on Balibo, Robert Connolly provides really gentle direction for Paper Planes to go in. He ensures that the childish wonder of the film is kept alive, and he makes it a treat for the eyes. The scenery for Paper Planes, the creative paper planes themselves and the visual effects all make things look good while the cinematography captures it all delightfully. And the entire story unfolds against the backdrop of a nice musical score. It is worth noting that I was given a chance to meet director Robert Connolly at a 3D screening of this film, and as well as the fact that the film uses 3D in a very clever fashion, cast member Terry Norris commented that he was such a chill director that he easily brought out the best in everyone. When it comes to the cast, this shows.Ed Oxenbould makes a charming lead as Jack. Though the story pushes a lot of melodrama on his shoulders, he manages to hold it up quite well with a naturally likable sense of charisma. His childish spirit gives a sense of ambition to the character which keeps things going in this tale of an underdog given an opportunity at redemption. And though the character is not perfect, Ed Oxenbould manages to keep things alive with a skilfully mature ability to interact with the surrounding cast. Ed Oxenbould proves himself as the ideal lead for Paper Planes, and his chemistry with particularly Sam Worthington and Nicolas Bakopoulos-Cooke are his strongest points.Terry Norris is the screen stealer in Paper Planes. Portraying the unpredictable but loveable Grandpa of the story, Terry Norris manages to mix archetypal elements of being a silly old man with a real sense of support that comes from his chemistry with Ed Oxenbould which makes him essential to the story. He is undoubtedly the funniest member of the cast. Terry Norris has a distinct charm about him in Paper Planes which he uses to keep the energy of Grandpa alive so consistently, and he puts a cleverly unpredictable twist on the old man archetype which hardly ever fails to yield successful comic results.It is good to see Sam Worthington returning to his Australian roots after making such a massive foray into Hollywood which has declined in recent years. His presence is good, and his performance is decent. His role in the film demands he mope around most of the time which can be rather repetitive, but as the narrative develops there is a strong sense of chemistry that he develops with Ed Oxenbould which feels like a true father-son sentiment and makes the story more touching. Sam Worthington makes a meaningful contribution to Paper Planes, and it is good to see his subtle dramatic skills back in play.Nicholas Bakopoulos-Cooke is a seriously funny addition to the cast. Whenever he is on screen he lights it up with his sense of childish humour. Ena Imai is not without her charms, and Peter Rowsthorn is a seriously genial presence for any fan of his work on Kath & Kim.?So Paper Planes is a thoroughly predictable film full of melodrama, implausibility and a sense of artificiality, but it is not without its colourful childish charm, sense of humour or talented cast.

Hugo G (it) wrote: 7.7/10This was the movie that really brought Carey Mulligan to my attention, and although I barely saw it, she's been one of my favorite actresses since 2009. And so now that I've seen it, her performance was really good and presence on the screen really came through and elevated the film. Also the story was very nice and down to earth to what essentially means to work hard and prepare yourself, while also learning from your surroundings. Although it was sometimes frustrating to watch her characters make mistakes, it felt real and accurate to what everyone growing up would do. ~August 22, 2016~

Jarrett M (it) wrote: Terror Trap is an uninspired knock off of Vacancy, and features two rather unlikeable lead characters. There isn't much here worth seeing, other than an underused Micheal Madsen and and over the top lunatic performance from Jeff Fahey. But then, both have given stronger performances elsewhere. I vote skip it.
