It's rare for a sequel to outstrip its predecessor, but Toy Story 2 succeeds admirably.

Times [UK]

The film remains one of Pixar's finest moments. It's unexpectedly dark in tone, and, with its underlying theme of mortality and abandonment, it's perceptively written and superbly animated.

Guardian [UK]

The sharp, clear shapes and planes, with their vivid colours and hyperreal light, promise to float in front of the audience's eyes, near and far, in something like the old-fashioned 3D way.

With the messages about friendship, loyalty and the all-too-fleeting nature of childhood already striking the perfect emotional chord, the 3D treatment simply deepens the visual experience.

Total Film

Eye-rolling action, needle-sharp in-jokes, engaging characterisations, perfect plotting... The only fault with this movie is one slightly irksome ballad. But even that's not going to stop you floating out of the cinema sporting a big, soppy smile.

Funny, inventive, surprisingly affecting and packed full of delightful touches, this is family entertainment of the highest order and definitely worth catching in this format.

Anyone who ever told you that a sequel couldn't be as good as the original needs to see this.

Remaining entirely true to Part 1 and yet establishing itself as a completely independent work, it is almost impossible to fault.

As with the recent 3D version of Toy Story, the 3D upgrade to Toy Story 2 is extremely impressive and makes this an unmissable experience, even if you've already seen it 20 times on DVD.

Not content to simply re-create the success of its predecessor, the sequel... reveal[s] itself to be a surprisingly philosophical work.

Inventive, hilarious, witty, touching and exhiliarting, (the final climatic scene which follows an airline's baggage handling system is heart stopping) "Toy Story 2" is that rarest of things - a perfect film.

Toy Story 2 always struck me as a disappointment. It's a fine movie with plenty of spirit, but the franchise formula feels diluted, lacking the spark of creativity that made the original film sing.

Toy Story 2 shares the unique distinction of being one of the very few sequels that actually surpasses its predecessor, and continues to entertain as effortlessly now as it did seven years ago when it debuted in theaters.

The movie's clearly articulated theme is whether life should be lived for the future or in the present, something both adults and children may find provocative.
