Summary: I totally agree with Chris Stuckmann on this movie.ightning McQueen, teamed with Mater, goes on an international tour to race some of the fastest cars in the world. This movie sucks with out no doubt, the movie felt boring and it lacks on the story which is a disappoint.
Excerpt: Before having my own children it was like squeezing water out of stone to get me to sit down and watch anything Disney had to offer. That was up until Pixar CGI animation studios was invented. Now i can't get enough of them and it's me folks...yes me that is actually dragging my kids to see it and not vice versa. Cars is no exception as i enjoyed it and found myself enjoying the second part all the more.
Summary: Overloaded cast, jets that make them faster and iffy one liners. It's plot tried to be too Bond-ish and the heart and charm of the first just dwindled. This was like viewing a videogame instead of a film. Kids will like this flick but I have a feeling film aficionados and animation lovers would be somewhat disappointed. This was pure excess compared to the first installment. Cars 2 may be eye-candy, story-wise and lack of interesting characters were definitely evident.
Summary: I don't think this movie was quite as good of a sequel as the Toy Story movies, but it was good. My family really enjoys the characters and this sequel gives all of the great ones plenty of screen time without overdoing it. Very memorable parts like when Mater eats wasabi thinking it's ice cream.
Excerpt: Okay, let me re-explain what you probably know; Cars 2 is widely being considered as Pixar's worst. This is true. It's also being widely considered as a bad film. This is not true. I personally believe this is another great film from Pixar, it just plunges a little more into the Dreamworks tub. The story revolves around Mater, rather than Lightning McQueen, a mixed decision in my opinion. On one hand, Lightning McQueen is a bland character, with little personality.
Summary: Being a big fan of the original Cars movie, my family and I really looked forward to this one. I did love that all the original voices were back. Adding Michael Caine to the cast was an amazing choice. I didn't really care for everything being set in Europe and taking Mater completely out of his element, but it was a fun movie none the less. I may watch it again at some point, but probably never as much as the original Cars.
Summary: The saddest thing about Pixar today is, they don't know what movie they are going to release on their 25th Anniversary since one of their upcoming projects "Newt" was cancelled despite from Blue Sky's Rio plot. Cars 2 feels like it's a direct-to-DVD film. It's not really bad but it's just unnecessary. Though, the action is pretty cool. The kids will enjoy it but the rest is like Rango. Instead of Western Themes, it's Spy movies.
