Big Hollywood

Undoubtedly flawed, this animated film is still (barely) worth seeing.

Minor Pixar, but it would be a major film were it made by just about anyone else. I, for one, will not get greedy.

Unlike the duller than duller "Cars," this is better than the toys they sell along with it.

Despite a more interesting plot, Cars 2 still leans on a number of problems established in the first film -- specifically leading men, Lightning McQueen and Mater.

Cars 2 is a very messy concoction, but it does prove entertaining every once in a while.

What Culture

With Cars 2 it seems Pixar may have fallen on the self-made sword of success. But even for adult audiences, it is no more than middling - it is neither terribly good nor terrible, but it still out-performs the majority of rival animation studios' output.

It's so eye-popping that Cars 2 easily ranks as one of the best 3D entries this year.

...Cars 2 is a bright and breezy excursion that avoids the slow patches the original had...

Cars dazzled my eyes and warmed my heart. Cars 2 ... inspired resistance instead of welcome.

Kids will be entertained and so will adults. I just didn't find myself particularly engaged.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

The action is non-stop and pleasing to the eye, but somewhere along the way, Pixar's soul was left behind.

Don't tell the kids, but Santa Claus isn't real and Pixar is fallible.

American Profile

The summer's first must-see family film is another cross-generational treasure from Pixar-Disney, with a full tank of humor, high-tech animation in the service of a good story, and heart.

The National

unlikely to be regarded among the best of the American studios' work, Cars 2 is a likeable sequel with dazzling visuals and adheres to everything Disney stands for.

Pixar's first bad film relies more on merchandising opportunities than storytelling ones.

The whole thing's basically Theseus' paradox as performed by a cast of sentient automobiles.

Though technically up to snuff, it's flat-footed stuff.

Visuals look spectacular and action sequences take full advantage of the 3D format so you feel like you are burning rubber down winding roads at dizzying speed.

Cars 2 won't win any new converts, but will sell an awful lot of car toys.

This is London

It is all quite jolly and fast-paced, a feast for the eyes, but there's not much for the mind or the heart.
