  • Lasseter is back behind the wheel, and you can feel his love for all things automotive in every frame. No humans blot this anthropomorphic romp. Cars do all the talking. show more

  • In terms of story and atmosphere and overall feeling, Cars 2 is a brand-new experience - and a distinct improvement. show more

  • It's not that it's a bad film. But the bar is high, and it's lackluster and predictable, missing that alchemic blend of humor, pathos and indelible characters that give Pixar movies their brilliant shine. show more
