Disney Pixar's 'Cars' Film Review

So I have put off seeing Cars as I've heard rather bad things about it from my friends and it's the lowest scored Pixar film on Rotten Tomatoes, but I've always had this curiosity of watching it given it IS Pixar and can Pixar really make a bad movie? 


Hot-shot rookie race car Lightning McQueen could make history by winning the Piston Cup, but an unseen three-way tie sends the three cars to a tie-breaker race a week later in California. Whilst making his way to the race, Lightning McQueen gets stranded in Radiator Springs, where he causes havoc and is held captive until he makes amends. Will he make it to the race in time?

The first thing is notice is the stunning driving imagery. The scenery as it zooms by makes it almost like you are sitting in the back seat with the windows down. The attention to detail to road signs and traffic lights really add depth to this world of living cars.

At just under two hours long, the film does feel slightly tired and overlong but the initially cocky and unlikeable Lightning soon warms to the audience as the film increases in humour. It progresses with a typical turn though the ending was not as predictable as you would've thought and it did end lighthearted and sweet. 

~~~VOICED BY~~~
Owen Wilson- Lightning mcQueen
Paul Newman- Doc Hudson
Bonnie Hunt- Sally Carrera
Larry the Cable Guy- Mater
Michael Keaton- Chick Hicks

~~~OVERALL~~~
'Cars' was definitely not as bad as I thought it would be given the reviews and word of mouth comments. It's probably the Pixar movie I felt least connected with emotionally but it was still enjoyable and had some nice visual details. It was slightly too long but the unpredictable and 'aww' ending does make up for it. Also, the end credit scenes was perhaps the highlight of the movie and made me chuckle :)

Now I only have Cars 2 to watch before having seen all of Pixar's feature films. Bring it on.

  1. Cars is a nice homily to small town life and remembering the past - which definitely has its charms - and call for remembering our roots, but it's been done better elsewhere.
