After enjoying Cars I went on to watch this and I didn't hate it but the warmness from Cars seemed to be missing from Cars 2. I have to say, this is my least favorite Pixar film which is not to say I didn't enjoy it at all, it's just that the standards are usually so high. Kinda disappointing but it wasn't as bad as people say
Pixar's first dud feels more like a cynical money grab, lacking the heart of their usual work. The CARS conceit goes too far as the simplicity of the original is replaced by loud, over the top spy hijinks that just don't fit in the world they had previously created.
Yeah hello john? Hi its Owen, how are you? good, Im ok? Listen....Im feeling underthe weather you know. No, nothing bad, just a headache and stomach acid out of this world. The thing is...im going to send you my lines via eMail ok? If not, just tell me when your recording and I'll call in, sound ok? you sure, that works for me, great. thanks john, your making you money worth while. xD
It is at times quite clever and creative, despite the fact it's lacking some of that classic Pixar charm. However, I think the real problem with this one is that it doesn't have characters - there are only caricatures. Nevertheless, I didn't find it that bad, especially considering its miles better than most other animated films these days. In fact, I honestly probably liked it just as much as the first Cars...
