Although Cars 2 is also rated "G" it is in stark contrast to it's predecessor. It has a dark feel to it and clearly inspired by "James Bond" movies. It includes a lot of gun violence and the bad guys are instructed to "kill him! And some characters are even killed off. There is also some mild name calling.
Don't get me wrong, as an adult, I thought it was entertaining and I've even watched it more than once. Just know going in that it is definitely more "mature" than the first. Had I know beforehand, I likely would have put this one on hold for a later day.
Hope this helps.
I watched this film right after the first a few days ago, and I'm again impressed by it in absolutely every way. Pixar managed to keep the world and characters from the first film, and create a film with a COMPLETELY different theme and feel. For anyone who thought the first Cars film was too slow, there's more action in the first half hour of this film than the whole of the first Cars combined. The jokes, the camera-work, the visual fidelity (WAAAAY more color this time around), and the variety of characters and settings have all been cranked way up to 11. There isn't really much of a story aside from again one of friendship and finding your usefulness in a world you don't understand, and sticking by your friends, but that doesn't matter because there's so many thrills to be found.
From a design viewpoint this might be the greatest Pixar film ever, with more incredible gadgets and clever uses for them than any other Pixar film I've ever seen. Literally this film keeps your eyes glued to the screen just to see what crazy visual gag or feat you will see next.
Parents will want to tread lightly if they're showing this to a kid who should be playing with large building blocks and coloring books instead of watching TV, but just about everyone else who likes their cartoons action-packed and filled with motion, color, and cleverness with love this film.
And yes, there's some fridge-horror when you realize that every one of those cars that gets zapped, explodes, or is thrown into the sea is DEAD! ....Shudders....
I found this 2nd story of Cars to be cute and very enjoyable. We as a family all enjoyed every minute of it. I have seen in other reviews how it gas been compared to James Bond, but I myself don't see how. It was well written, flowed well, and had enough depth to keep me entertained form beginning o end. I originally bought this just to ad another 3D film to my 3D line-up but found myself pleasantly surprised at how well this story really is. I have always enjoyed Pixar movies and this one did not disappoint. There are a few scenes with a little bit of violence in them and some very mild name calling, but nothing I would keep any of the younger crowd from viewing. And as for the 3D, well it is pretty decent, not spectacular, but there again, it is not poor either. It always seems that animated films carry over quite well into 3D and this was no exception.
All in all I would have to say that this is a great animated Pixar film that the ENTIRE family would enjoy. And you can feel safe enough to let the little ones watch it too without fear of too much violence or bad language.
Would I buy this again? A solid and resounding YES!
Lighting and Co. are back, save Doc and (kind of) Fillmore (Paul Newman and George Carlin, RIP). But Tow Mater is the lead in this, and highlights this opportunistic and failed story. Mater is, like the other characters, a vehicular anthropomorphic archetype. Cars was humorous in it's creativity of these types, but in Cars 2 Mater is overtly the buffoon, only to be revealed as the wise fool. Actually, the wise, Southern-Hick fool, which is tiring to say the least.
Perhaps the immensely creative and smart artists at Pixar should get a mulligan here. That's only fair. But John Lasseter, the head of Pixar wrote and directed this, and could have probably made whatever film we wanted to, so it is considerable to wonder why this was made and where it went wrong....
