Disney Pixar's: Cars 2

I got to go to an advance screening of Cars 2 from Pixar with my wife and daughter earlier in the week thanks to Disney Pictures. Anyone who liked the first Cars will also like this movie. It has far more action than the first film since it is mainly a spy story. So both good guy and bad guy cars meet unfortunate ends either implied or just off screen. Sometimes my 4 year old (almost 5 where does the time go), got scared but usually by the time she crawled onto my wife's lap that part was over. The action level is more like The Incredibles than say Toy Story. The head villain car tells his minions that "McQueen must die". It has a nice message about friendship and standing by your friends but does not have the emotional depth of Up. Definitely a movie to take the kids to especially boys probably between 5-10 who have seen and loved the first Car movie.


  1. I'm 21 and liked the first one, is that a little sad? Also Up is probably one of my favorite movies of all time.

  2. Up is a good movie but it is not really a kids movie other than being computer drawn. My daughter just got scared by it and missed the real pull of the story. Cars 2 is a fine little spy adventure set in the Cars world but it is not as good as some other pixar movies.
