Cars 2: An IMAX 3D Experience

Rated G 113 min. 2011

Cars 2 is not bad so much as it is, well, pedestrian. In this sequel to Pixar's hugely successful 2006 film, the conflict is between oil interests and alternative fuel advocates. But it's a red herring, devoid of any broader environmental context. Instead of embracing the sort of life-informed storyline that Pixar usually excels at, the film foists a muddled espionage thriller with enough CG racing sequences shoehorned in to keep the kiddies interested. Unfortunately, when your plot revolves around an animated, gearhead version of a mediocre James Bond movie, you're ultimately left with just a mediocre James Bond movie. So it is that in June of the year 2011, a quarter-century after its founding, Pixar Animation Studios finally made an average, mundane movie. It's guilty of being a prosaic, pun-filled film with lots of commotion but little sense or soul. In light of Pixar's sterling track record, we'll let them slide this time. Just don't let it happen again.
