Film synopsis Superstar race car Lightning McQueen (Wilson) is cajoled by his tow truck buddy Mater (The Cable Guy) to compete in the World Grand Prix, a tripartite tournament across Japan, Italy and Blighty. Yet Mater is mistaken by British spies Finn McMissile (Caine) and Holley Shiftwell (Mortimer) as an American agent and gets embroiled in a hunt for a camera with hidden powers.
tp://www.imdb.com/title/tt1216475/]Cars 2f there was one Pixar film that in my opinion shouldn`t have gotten a sequel it was Cars, one of the lesser films from the Animation Gods. The trailers didn`t up my ante either. So imagine how big my surprise was when I found that this wasn`t at all the bad movie I thought it was going to be.
The story might even be better than that of the first installment, although it is at points typical Disney-moralising. The animations are gorgeous and the detail is More
Cars 2 getting a rotten rating? C'mon...The Original was superb and I consider it the best animated features I have ever seen.
Previously on Pixar- Ratatouille, Wall-E, Up and Toy Story 3 got ratings of 95,96,98, and 99% respectively!!! Do you expect that the next feature Cars 2 getting a 100% rating? After all, Pixar is human- our expectations are 100%! More
Apparently, Cars is the most succesful moneymaker that pixar had, where the bulk of the money came from the merchandise. It would be ridiculous to think they made this movie for any other reason than to keep the money machine printing merrily away. It was an enjoyable film, but unlike Toy Story or Monsters Inc. lacks the charm that would get you excited about a sequel.
Looking forward to Monster University next year! More
I think all of the views expressed above on Cars are correct. It's hard to imagine how people of any age could relate to inanimate objects, like cars for example, and yet not so.
Those cars had voices of their own and three-dimensional personalities and the human mind has an odd capacity to decode and read behind the facades.
Adults are able to catch what each car's personality is like and can identify the specific car with a specific acquaintance of theirs, relative, themselves, etc. Chi More
Worst Pixar? There isn't one.
My kids still watch Cars almost every day. It was my daughters first ever film she saw in a theatre.
And yes, she has seen all the others many times over, bar Bug's Life (just missed), The Incredibles (too scary, says I) and Wall*E (too new).
I believe Pixar wouldn't make a "forced" sequel. More
well ask anyone on this forum and the vast, vast majority will say that Cars is their least favourite of Pixar. for starters there's no ground to relate to the characters since their, ahem, cars. And they live in a world of, ahem, cars. It's just a silly idea really and that's why it was disliked. At least other Pixar films related to real-life in some way and therefore became lovable and understandable. I'm not saying that a film has to be reality based to be enjoyable but Cars was just dull d More
