You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
Star race car Lightning McQueen and his pal Mater head overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix race. But the road to the championship becomes rocky as Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage.
What an unbelievably lazy film.
I know, I know, you're gonna go all 'This wasn't made for you' on me, but I say to hell with that! I'm a 37 year old kid who loves animated movies, so I'm bloody certain it was made for me.
Shame on you, Pixar, shame on you
From its groundbreaking debut in 1995 to its most successful film in 2010, Pixar Animation Studios released 11 feature-length films, almost all of which went on to garner them acclaim, love & respect from critics n viewers around the world, completely reinvented the animation industry in the process, and also turned this animation powerhouse into one of world cinema's finest.
But everything that has a beginning has an end & there's always a first time for all things. And Cars 2 marks something of a first for Pixar; it's their first critical failure which ultimately marks the end of the winning streak the studio had kept alive since its inception. However, what's even more disappointing is that they actually decided to make…
In preparation for the sequel I thought I'd give the first film another try after being underwhelmed by it on its original release and in truth I liked it even less. But Cars was still an okay film, just not comparable with Pixar's normally high standards. I'm sad to say that Cars 2 is the studio’s first flat out bad film.
Yes, the animation is absolutely stunning but this is the very least we should expect from a Pixar movie. Unfortunately, that is also all that is good about a film that seems solely made to shift more merchandise. The uninteresting spy plot dominates the film which provides two problems - too much screen time for Mater (he was bad…
Christ, Pixar, what happened here? Has anyone, in the history of sentient thought, longed for an animated rendition of a James Bond flick? Which, instead of James Bond, stars a rusty redneck unwittingly caught up in international espionage? And on top of that, it's not just a rusty redneck, it's a damn tow truck, that happens to be rusty and a redneck as well. The idea of anthropomorphic automobiles was stretched thin enough with the original, this is just sad. Unbelievably lazy. I can't even fathom the long, step-by-step process that greenlit this. What were they thinking? A charmless cash-in, and hopefully the worst film Pixar will ever make.
It was inevitable that I eventually seeked out this one. This was the only Pixar film that I had yet to see and as a big fan of the studio, I needed to witness what many people considered their first complete misstep. Not to mention, it's one that I've avoided for years, and it's gotten to the point where I had to give in (a recent visit to the Cars Land section of one of Disney's theme parks certainly didn't help). So going into this, I hoped that it was going to be a disposable, but fun film that was more geared towards kids, in the way a lot of DreamWorks' animated films are. In a sense, I got most…
At one point one of the cars is knocked out with some kind of sleeping gas. So the cars actually breathe?
John Lasseter brings you the worst interpretation of American exceptionalism disguised as colorful garbage voiced by Larry the Cable Guy.
Well it looks like my first review is going to be of Cars 2. Thanks to the fact I lived in Iceland as an au pair for 2 year old and 8 year old boys, I saw this movie many a time over the course of the summer. I should mention that it was dubbed in Icelandic. I have now sat here for 5 minutes trying to remember what it was about and have determined that it is a very forgettable, but palatable film. The original Cars is Beyond iconic so this had no chance of competing but hey, if it keeps the kids happy.
if i have to hear owen wilson's voice again i swear 2 god
there's a car pope in this movie which means religion exists in this universe which means there was a car jesus and i can't sleep at night
there was NO REASON for a second movie other than to sell more toys.
So Pixar thought a story revolving around the dimwitted sidekick was a good idea? Cars 2 really is the worst one.
MVP: Weezer. I was happy to hear their take on The Cars "You Might Think".
Lightning isstill cute but it lack of story and plot
Pixar's worst and weakest film, Cars 2 is nothing but a bunch of CGI effect.
- Dull and or predictable plot which is very un-Pixar
- How did they get all these random celebrities?
- Makes a sentient car world seem even more implausible
- just for kids (too boring for adults)
Can't tell if satire or not.
Working on adding notes for all of them.
Almost any movie directed…
Complete list. :-(
