Now that you've seen it, what did you think? It's Pixar weekend in 2011 and this time they're serving up another sequel, Cars 2, picking up pretty much where the first Cars from 2006 left off. John Lasseter gets director credit again, with Brad Lewis co-director, on an adventure all around the world. Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is back, but the story mainly focuses on Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) basically becoming a spy with Finn McMissile (Michael Caine). So how is it? Was it a bad choice for Pixar to make a sequel to this? Is it fun to watch? If you've seen it, leave a comment and tell us what you thought of Cars 2!
To fuel the engine with Allinol this time, I honestly really think Cars 2 is a lot of fun, it's not Pixar's greatest film, that's certainly the case, but I think it's entertaining and has a little bit of a heart - it tries to at least. And as long as you don't hate Larry the Cable Guy and can still laugh at Mater (which I can, I loved Mater's Tall Tales too!) then you might actually enjoy this as well. I found the whole James Bond-like story so awesome, mostly because I'm a big Bond fan, and I'm glad it carried the whole way through (and didn't give it up). Plus, I liked the lil' friendship plot, but that's the problem, it was too brief and whimpy, it needed to be more, it lacked more of that emotion, but it was still a fun movie to watch. Embrace your inner lemon!
So what did you think of Pixar's Cars 2? One of Pixar's best, or worst? Good entertainment?
