Review: Cars 2
Little need be said about Cars 2 apart from the fact that it represents the long-expected downturn in Pixar’s artistic fortunes. It’s certainly the weakest of their offerings to date. While the action scenes are well-choreographed, the story is shallow and uninvolving. I thought 2006′s Cars was the least successful film to come out of Emeryville prior to this and even it had more emotional resonance than its sequel. Between directing, running two film divisions, and a theme park business, it would seem that John Lasseter is simply spreading himself too thin.
