Overview: This a comedy adventure about second chances. It features a dynamic crew of elite firefighting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from raging wildfire.

What's it about: When world-famous air racer Dusty learns that his engine is damaged and that he may never race again, he must shift gears and launch into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire and rescue helicopter Blade Ranger and Ranger’s courageous team. Together, the fearless team battles a massive wildfire, and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero.

Our fave bits: Although there are stereotypes and cliches here and there, we were touched by how the movie beautifully paid tribute to the people who put their lives in danger to keep national parks safe.

Rating: 3/5
