From Amazon.co.uk

There's an extra coat of hot wax on Pixar's vibrant, NASCAR-influenced comedy about a world populated entirely by cars. Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) is the slick rookie taking the Piston Cup series by storm when the last race of the season (the film's high-octane opening) ends in a three-way tie. On the way to the tie-breaker race in California, Lightning loses his way off Route 66 in the Southwest desert and is taught to stop and smell the roses by the forgotten citizens of Radiator Springs. It's odd to have such a slim story from the whizzes of Pixar, and the film pales a bit from their other films (though can that be a fair comparison?).

Nonetheless, Cars is another gleaming ride with Pixar founder John Lasseter, who's directing for the first time since Toy Story 2. There's the usual spectrum of excellent characters teamed with appropriate voice talent, loads of smooth humor for kids and parents alike, knockout visuals, and a colorful array of sidekicks, including a scene-stealing baby blue forklift named Guido. Lightning's plight is changed with the help of former big-city lawyer Sally Carrera (Pixar veteran Bonnie Hunt), the town's patriarch Doc Hudson (Paul Newman), and kooky tow truck Mater (Larry the Cable Guy). The Incredibles was the first Pixar film to break the 100-minute barrier, but had enough story not to suffer; Cars, at 116 minutes (including some must-see end credit footage), is not as fortunate, plus it never pierces the heart. Trivia fans should have bonanza with the frame-by-frame DVD function; the movie is stuffed with in-jokes, some appearing only for an instant. Ages 5 and up. --Doug Thomas

Both me and my 6 years old daughter we loved this movie - although of course for different reasons.

She appreciated the very idea of talking cars and then the races, Mator the "red-neck" car, etc. I was impressed by the animation - this is for the moment the most technically advanced animation movie I ever saw ("Happy Feet" did as well) - and the more adult oriented humouristic parts, like the Porsche girl who left Los Angeles to find peace in a small town; an old town doctor, called Doctor in Internal Combustion; the cars going to the toilet - guess which line is advancing faster..., a rivalry between a "Peace and Love" old van and a retired sergeant who is of course a jeep, a Japanese female journalist who is a gorgeous little Honda, etc, etc.).

The final scenes in which they show fragments of older Pixar movies (like Sully and Mike Wazowski stranded in Himalayas) played by cars (the Yeti being an enormous snow tractor) are also a delight.

I just can not uderstand some of very critical (and mean) reviews below - I loved this movie and, more important, my daughter loved it too. She insisted on sleeping on a pillow with Ligthning McQueen for months after that.... If you didn't see it - go and get it. Pixar is getting better at every next movie so I just can not wait to see "Ratatouille"....

4.0 out of 5 stars KA-CHOW 12 Oct 2006
By Steps
Format:DVD
Brash and arrogant rookie stockcar racer Lightning McQueen (a typically laconic Owen Wilson), gets lost on route to a championship race in California and winds up in sleepy backwater town Radiator Springs. The town's residents, including a seemingly bad tempered old time racer Doc (a gruff Paul Newman), peppy Porsche Sally (Bonnie Hunt) and simple but innocent tow-truck Mater (Larry The Cable Guy), help the young charge learn `valuable life lessons' and the importance of community and friendship.

Pixar have ruled the roost on the animated movie market for the best part of a decade now, but with the likes of Monster House, Over the Hedge and Ice Age 2 jostling for a slice of this lucrative pie, is Pixar's latest number one on this years starting grid?

To set your mind at rest, Cars is great fun. It's funny, good natured and displays, in each frame, bundles of imagination that once again puts many live action movies to shame. John Lasseter sets out his stall early on, commencing with a thrilling racing sequence that introduces McQueen and his familiar neon lit world via a stunning set piece before relocating to the broken down confines of forgotten town, Radiator Springs.

Radiator Springs itself is the kind of gentile town that's often remembered with hazy nods to 60's Americana and its inhabitants are struggling to relive the glory days. When Lightning arrives in town causing a whole heap of damage along the way they see it as a reminder of better times and the young hot rod gets a glimpse of what he is missing from his pampered lifestyle. The pace slows drastically through the town sequences and the film itself stutters, suffering from the fact that a movie centred more on the racing rather than Car's well intentioned `message' would be far more exciting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Visually great 16 April 2007
By Eolake
Format:DVD
"Cars" is the first Pixar movie I did not buy immediately. But finally I got tired of waiting for the rental copy, and I bought it.

The delay was due to the trailer not really doing much for me. Also, I felt that cars is a dubious choice for animated characters. Unlike bugs or toys, they don't have arms or faces, so it's a little forced, methinks.

That said, I'd have to say they pulled it off. Actually, looking at real cars after having seen this movie, I half expect them to move and open their eyes.

"Cars" is not the best or funniest Pixar movie. My faves are Monsters Inc, Toy Story 2, and The Incredibles. But "Cars" was still very worthwhile, I enjoyed it. And it is visually gorgeous. The scenery especially is amazing.

If you get the DVD, be sure not to miss the extras. The two shorts included, for one thing, are falling-over funny.

I also appreciate the basic message of the movie: winning is not everything. The western world is still a bit fixated on Being Number One. And contests can be fun and they can be inspiring, but ultimately they are just games, they are not life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!!! 27 Aug 2006
By Adam VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Cars, the number one talked about summer blockbuster. But did it reach its full potential? Did it provide laughs and thrills like other Pixar classics such as Finding Nemo and Toy Story. For me, it did. I found the story, the scenery, the characters and even the soundtrack incredible. Although most critics gave it at least 4 stars, many said the story line was a little 'rusty'. But I found it was perfect and was a simple yet well thought out story that is funny, charming and touching in places. So although it wasn't the summer blockbuster people were expecting, for me it was one of the best films I've seen this year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Motors along nicely 8 Nov 2006
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
There has been a generally cool reception from critics for Pixar's latest.

Many felt the story stale and the characters not up to much.

The story is of a cocky young race car called lightning McQueen who needs to learn a lesson in manners and caring for others. To that end he winds up getting caught speeding through a dusty old forgotten town somewhere on route 66. His punishment is a weeks hard labour and while there he meets and learns to appreciate the locals.

The story is simple but then this is a film for little 'uns mostly so what do you expect? At first the fantastic animation captures the attention along with the fun to be had seeing cars behaving like humans,( at the racetrack the fans in the stands are all cars, using their headlights to make a mexican wave), but 15 minutes in the glitzy bright animation and novelty begin to wear off and you're left feeling that it's going to be a bit of a disappointment.

However this is not the case as once Mcqueen, (Owen Wilson doing a great job of making him a bit of a whiney & spoilt so and so ), reaches the backwater town of radiator springs things improve dramatically.

Here we are introduced to funny and likeable characters that carry the movie. Paul newman is amongst the voices of the townsfolk as an ex-racer with a seemingly grumpy attitude but the standout is the delapidated towtruck Mater,(tow-mater, geddit?), a hilarious hick whose presence makes this film so much better.

In truth the story and what happens are not of much importance, rather it's the inter-reaction of characters in this small but happy town that makes Cars worth while.

Be warned that it does run on probably a bit too long for very young children.
