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.

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...

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

The invention here is often still dazzling, the race sequences are invigorating and spirited voice work atones for the inexpressiveness of the cars themselves. Even so, this isn't Pixar at top gear.

Ultimately, Cars 2 isn't a bad film but it does have some deadly dull stretches and never hits top gear.

It's funny, entertaining, and visually witty. I could happily watch it again, just for the ingenuity of the background detail.

A Mater overload is on the cards, and much as the new characters add some dimension, it's still a Mater-McQueen show, essentially.

Lasseter delivers some exciting race sequences set in, among other places, Paris and London, but the stop-start nature of the yarn results in a rare instance of Pixar failing to fire on all cylinders.

Cars 2 is beautiful to look at, but the characters still don't really grab hold of your hearts like Woody & Co from Toy Story or even the fish in Finding Nemo.

Ironic that Cars continues to be Pixar's most underpowered juggernaut - but you have to admire the body work.
