Cars 2 (2011) review

A good movie

Well, itt is probably the least regarded movie made by Pixar so far but, surprisingly, I thought it was actually quite enjoyable. To be honest, I do think that my rating was probably too generous and a re-watch might drop it consequently. In fact, the first installment was already poorly received so it seemed a rather odd move to make a sequel. Some argued that it was made in the first place just to sell even more merchandizing which is a pretty nasty thought considering that Pixar has always been synonymous with creativity. Anyway, since I didn't expect much from this flick, I thought it was actually not bad or, at least, a slight improvement on its predecessor. Indeed, in my opinion, it was better than I expected. First of all, the whole thing just looked amazing and the amount of details was quite mind-blowing. They were also some awesome new characters (Finn McMissile and Professor Z above all). So, it was better than ‘Cars" but did it belong to the Pixar masterpieces? Definitely not. Sure, it was quite entertaining but not really great in any way. After ‘Toy Story 3’ (which was good but not great either, in my book), those sequels have been decent but also rather tiresome and I can't wait to see Pixar touching some new material again. Anyway, in spite its rather lame reputation, I think it is worth a look, especially if you are a fan of Pixar.
