Cars 2


Critic Review - Rolling Stone

I blow a piston whenever 2006's Cars gets trashed as the runt of the Pixar litter. The sequel is a tire-burning burst of action and fun with a beating heart under its hood.

First Ebert, now Travers. Pixar geeks celebrate!

Travers' first line is a winner: "I blow a piston whenever 2006's Cars gets trashed as the runt of the Pixar litter." Amen.

Then this: "Original director John Lasseter is back behind the wheel, and you can feel his love for all things automotive in every frame."

Thanks Mr. Travers (and Ebert) for adding a couple fresh perspectives to the Cars 2 bashing party.

Travers is probably my favorite critic, and I am confident that I will agree with him on this film. Because Cars was the least acclaimed of all Pixar's creations, I believe that critics were over thinking this film and just looking for the bad, instead of actually enjoying it.

What's to enjoy? I know cars is a film that's got a lot of haters and that's not entirely unjustified, but in all honesty if you walk into a film thinking it's going to be bad, if the film is mediocre or nothing special it's more than likely your only going to see the negative. If the film was good(along the lines of Shrek and toy story one), then that negative veil is lifted and in it's place is a feeling of wow that was great! and cars 2 just isn't that it's mediocre at best, it's not exceeding critics or peoples expectations on average. So as a result here we are, a very low rating that makes Shrek 3 laugh. It's pixars worst film, it fails to grasp that old pixar magic to appeal to a wide audience and unlike the last film it also fails to maintain the quality as well. I am sorry but stripping all opinions aside, Cars 2 is bad.
