Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

John Lasseter and his gang of high-tech creators at Pixar create another entertainment for the ages. Like the handful of other great movie sequels, Toy Story 2 comments on why the first one was so wonderful while finding a fresh angle worthy of a new film. The craze of toy collecting becomes the focus here, as we find out Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) is not only a beloved toy to Andy but also a rare doll from a popular 60s children's show. When a greedy collector takes Woody, Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) launches a rescue mission with Andy's other toys. To say more would be a crime because this is one of the most creative and smile-inducing films since, well, the first Toy Story.

Although the toys look the same as in the 1994 feature, Pixar shows how much technology has advanced: the human characters look more human, backgrounds are superior, and two action sequences that book-end the film are dazzling. And it's a hoot for kids and adults. The film is packed with spoofs, easily accessible in-jokes and inspired voice casting (with newcomer Joan Cusack especially a delight as Cowgirl Jessie). But as the Pixar canon of films illustrates, the filmmakers are storytellers first. Woody's heart-tugging predicament can easily be translated into the eternal debate of living a good life versus living for forever. Toy Story 2 was deservedly a huge box-office success. --Doug Thomas, Amazon.com

Product Description

This sequel to 'Toy Story' sees pull-string cowboy Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) kidnapped by toy collector Al, who plans to sell him to a Japanese toy museum. Assisted by Mr Potato Head, Slinky Dog and Rex the Dinosaur, action figure Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) sets off to the rescue, but when they get to Al's store Buzz is mistakenly boxed up and his place taken by a new, flashier Lightyear model - complete with utility belt! Meanwhile, Woody has discovered that he was once the star of a popular children's television show, and is no longer sure he wants to return to Andy's toy cupboard.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare and Wonderful thing 26 Sep 2006
By Kate
Format:DVD
I caught the tail-end of Toy Story one Christmas time, a couple of years ago, and the next thing I knew, I was in Blockbusters, renting it. Browsing through the 'cartoon' section, I caught sight of "Toy Story 2", and thought 'oh, another trite Disney sequel', and dismissed it.

Well, six months later, I was in Blockbusters again, with a couple of friends, and one of them started waxing lyrical about it, insisting that we rent it, and, to my shock, everyone else backed her up. I couldn't really say no, could I? So I bought popcorn, and resigned myself to a torturous night of cringes and bad jokes.

It was amazing. A really wonderful movie - more than that, a really wonderful story, a story with jokes that make you laugh, characters you believe in, and a moral that doesn't slap you round the face and shout "Look at me! I'm here!".

The scene with Jessica, talking to Woody about 'her human', Emily, is particularly moving. I'm sure I'm not the only kid in the world who gave some of my older, less loved toys a dust-down and a bit of a hug after watching this film.

If you don't want to buy it, at least rent it, or borrow it off someone who has it. It's rare that a cartoon can simultaneously be forward thinking and an immediate classic, but these one does it with ease; it's so very much worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Blu-ray for Toy Story 2 16 Mar 2010
By Dr T
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This being an older Pixar release, I was a bit unsure about whether to order it. I feared it may be a DVD upscale or some other rehash - or that the source material simply wouldn't look as good over 10 years (and many other excellent Pixar films) later.

All these fears were unfounded. The transfer is quite simply excellent. There are one or two moments with a little digital noise (in bright areas) and some anti-aliasing issues but they really are very, very minor indeed. The textures are more plain in design and colour than later Pixar efforts but everything is rendered absolutely pin-sharp. The colours, though plain as I say, are very rich indeed. Some scenes show breathtaking detail and the whole feel is really appealing and very suited to the 'toy' setting and characters.

The sound is a Master Audio track. It's very powerful indeed, so much so that I lost the dialogue in some places. However this could have been because I was listening quietly. Overall the sound treatment is excellent. (Edit: The dialogue remains clear and intelligible throughout, it's just the sound effects are mixed quite high in places, it seems, so I had to turn it down for comfort reasons only.)

There are a few extras on the Blu-ray (I haven't checked the bundled DVD yet; it appears to duplicate the Blu-ray but with a bit less content). They are mainly short, funny - and rather odd - 'cartoons' about the production of Toy Story 2. They are charming enough. There doesn't appear to be a Pixar short in the package though, from my first quick glance at all the extras. There is an audio commentary though.

To sum up, if you like the film, don't be put off by the lack of reviews. I was initially but there was nothing to worry about.

There is a rumour that this was planned as a straight to video (DVD) release and it only secured a cinematic release when Pixar realised how good it was. It certainly was good enough.
A great story following the gang attempting to rescue Woody after a toy collector has kidnapped him (technically I guess he is stolen but it feels like a kidnapping). As in the first film the story works on a number of different levels successfully appealing to children and adults.
Once again the animation is fantastic and the vocal talents superb: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Kelsey and Joan Cusack are all excellent.
Simply wonderful

Although this film is aimed at children. It packs a punch for the mature viewer with its 'tongue and cheek' approach which is so admirable. TOY STORY 2 deserves to become a classic along with it's predecessor. This is one of few sequels (along with THE GODFATHER PART II) which has such depth and originality.
The jokes in this sensational movie keep you laughing till bedtime. I remember resiting all the witty lines to my friends who had yet to see it.
The voices are first rate (a grade up from the original), Joan Cusack most notably. Kudos most also be given to the animated team who (still) make us marvel at such fantastic special-effects animation skills.
The mood is different from the original too. The whole set-up of the story felt different and there was one touchingly tender moment involving beautiful little Jessie (Joan Cusack).
I think this movie should be taken from the kids and watched late-at-night when they're all tucked in bed purely because this is deep, touching and often hysterically witty storytelling. Just don't tell the little rascals you've bought it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic 20 Sep 2005
By Skdzien
Format:DVD
coming up for a sequel for Toy story must have been difficult but this story is just as magic as the first, in fact even more so. For the first time Ham, Rex, and Slink leave Andy's room along with Buzz as woody has been stolen by a toy collector. they ned to act quick if they are to save him. All the characters are incredibly funny and deserve oscars for their performances.
If you are looking for a DVD for the kids this christmas then this is it, and even adults can enjoy it! Have a laugh and learn who woody really is.....
