WHAT I LIKED: A third sequel was always going to be hard to get right, but what makes 'Toy Story 3' work is that they mostly steer it in an entirely new direction. Yes whilst 2 upped the anti a little bit, this one delves darker and acts bolder than any of the others dared, and that means we genuinely get opportunities for further development of these allready well-rounded characters. Of course it's still Pixar, and it still feels so, but they shook the formula just enough in the delivery of humour, tension and emotion that it's a properly viable third installment as well as a great film in its own right.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Again some of the quiet charm of its predecessors is slightly lost
VERDICT: Another great Toy Story film that leaps forward in a bolder, more adventurous direction.
