...explores the same themes, but running in place has never seemed as witty, touching and visually engaging as it does here.

'You can't rush art.' Pixar's bliss in art and play is part and parcel of both the creation and the meaning of Toy Story 2, a celebration of the pure joy of doing. [Blu-ray]

Toy Story 3 has an extremely tough act to follow.
March 22, 2010
Toy Story 2 is the first mature Pixar film and a high watermark that, if Pixar's surpassed it in the last fifteen years, at least it hasn't often.
January 27, 2010
The film is a series of gorgeously conceived set pieces and terrific character interaction and, unlike newer films, it's not afraid to get a bit grim.
January 22, 2010
Seeing the film ten years later - and in the mighty shadow of Pixar's recent masterpieces - the film feels a little chaotic, safe, tired on its feet.
January 22, 2010
It's rare for a sequel to outstrip its predecessor, but Toy Story 2 succeeds admirably.
January 22, 2010
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.
January 22, 2010
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.
January 22, 2010
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.
January 22, 2010
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.
January 22, 2010
Nigh-on perfect.
January 22, 2010
If you've not seen Toy Story 2, you're in for a treat.
January 22, 2010
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.
January 22, 2010
Anyone who ever told you that a sequel couldn't be as good as the original needs to see this.
January 22, 2010
Remaining entirely true to Part 1 and yet establishing itself as a completely independent work, it is almost impossible to fault.
January 21, 2010
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.
October 6, 2009
Not content to simply re-create the success of its predecessor, the sequel... reveal[s] itself to be a surprisingly philosophical work.
October 1, 2009
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.
October 1, 2009
Our emotional autobiographies influence our film tastes more than we'd care to admit.
