This is the first Pixar movie ever that I did not totally adore - it was OK, but no more. Below you will find the reasons why - in my personal opinion - "Cars 2" is much weaker than the original.

1. The story, part 1 - producers wanted a car/spy movie referring to James Bond franchise and they got it, but the price for it is a plot both complicated and - for the first time in Pixar's movies - simply stupid! Also, I am certain that smaller children who never watched any James Bond movies (or any spy movies for that matter) will not get the story and get confused. Which is more, all the shooting, crashing, exploding and bombing are in my modest opinion out of place in a kid's movie. And to complete the picture, there is even a quite scary scene of TORTURE and MURDER of a spy car by the bad guys!

2. The story, part 2 - I personally found that some elements of plot are quasi racist! The bad guys (or rather the bad cars) are all the obsolescent marks from countries of former East block (Zigoulis, Zastavas, Yugos, Trabants, etc.), who are ugly, cheap, frequently disfunctionning, leaking oil, etc. They are in fact the lowest proletariat in "Cars" world. Frankly it could be a good idea to make the movie about renovation of those old and rather pathetic cars (like converting them to more ecologic fuels) which could give them some kind of a future and a place in society - but instead they are presented as murderous villains! Now that is a great idea to show your little kids - if somebody is poor and down on his luck, speaks with foreign accent, looks foreign, wear used clothes and obviously suffers, he/she is obviously dangerous and must be destroyed by classy people!

Pixar’s Cars 2 reunites racing car Lightning McQueen and tow truck Mater in this flamboyant and boisterous sequel to the original released 5 years earlier. Lightning accepts a challenge from a European Formula One car to a race and the stage is set for a trip to Japan for the race and a James Bond like espionage plot involving the Sponsors, an unwitting Mater and the British Secret Service. This fish out of water sub plot, bolted on for Mater so he has something to do, is paper thin and feels a bit desperate.

With the original voices for McQueen and Mater returning along with the original director and now including Michael Cain and Eddie Izzard Cars 2 should have been great, but it wasn’t. The considerable charm and simple homespun appeal of the original has gone, sadly replaced by a standard globetrotting actioner with little wit or inventiveness. Where Cars had a very simple story well told, Cars 2 has a fairly complicated story badly told, and feels like an exercise in “let’s just do it anyway and hope it comes out in the wash”. Easily the poorest Pixar film to date; Brave coming a very close second, Cars 2 is completely unnecessary and a waste of $200 million and 3 years work. Even my five year old thinks it’s “pants”, his new favourite word for something he doesn’t like. Cars 2 abruptly ended Pixar’s hard won 4 year winning streak at the Oscars for Best Animated Feature, and its Rotten Tomatoes score is a terrible 39 out of 100.

I can normally find something in a movie to praise, but Cars 2 is pretty poor considering how much it cost and the amount of talent involved. First class animation cannot hide that dull story, even with Lightning and Mater. Pixar’s mantra that the “story is everything” didn’t seem to apply in this case. I’ll bet they don’t talk about Cars 2 much at Pixar.

The only Pixar film we don’t own.

Like any film, sequels always come off second best. Cars 2 is no different, but what it does do, is take a different slant. James Bond-esque plot, new characters will keep kids enticed and no doubt sell more toys. At the end of the day, its a kids movie, so adults don't expect oscar winning performances, in-depth plot, and superb characters. Kids like Mater and his mannerisms, so live with it.

Haven't seen the 3d version but Blu-ray is typical quality. My only complaint is the lack of product detail across the versions. Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + Digital Copy or standard Blu-Ray which has a limited time free DVD to send off for. I would have thought those who purchased the Blu-ray 3D pack would have the same option.....but no! Wished I'd have chosen the other pack now, as I'm requiring a DVD version. Product clarity is all that we customers require.

It's credit to Pixar that Cars 2 is considered a bad film. Had any other studio made this (and the first Cars, for that matter), they would have been recevied a lot better, I think. But, by Pixar standards, this is one of their weakest, for sure.

But that doesn't mean it's a bad film overall. Don't be put off by the negativity you may read: this is a GOOD film. Not great, and certainly not one of their best, but still enjoyable and satisfying.

Trouble is, Cars 2 is the polar opposite of the first one, which isn't exactly a good thing. There was plenty to like about the first Cars: relaxed pace, heartwarming story, meaningful characters...still, Lasseter seems to have taken the poor reception to the first film to heart, and swung right in the other direction with Cars 2. What we end up with is fast, slick and action-packed, but lacks a soul.

It starts well, and the globetrotting theme seemed like a great idea - the Tokyo segment is excellent. But it quickly gets tedious, and just as you settle in one place, off we go to the next destination. Do we get exciting, dazzling locations? Yes. But it feels like they chose the places they wanted to take Lightning and friends first, then decided how they were going to fit the story around it after. So it feels very stretched.

The plot itself is very complicated. I wouldn't worry about little kids being confused, as there's plenty of dazzle and vroom-vrooms to keep them entertained, but don't be surpried if you have to stop and answer a few questions for them - and answer some of your own too.
