What to Know

Critics Consensus

Cars 2 is as visually appealing as any other Pixar production, but all that dazzle can't disguise the rusty storytelling under the hood.

Cars 2 | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express The trouble with stuffing too much into a film quickly becomes evident in Cars 2, as the plotlines tumble and collide with each other creating, mostly, cacophony. Rated: 2/5 Apr 2, 2019 Full Review Cars 2 | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Roger Moore Tribune News Service Unlike the duller than duller "Cars," this is better than the toys they sell along with it. Rated: 3/4 Jan 2, 2013 Full Review Cars 2 | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Leah Rozen TheWrap Don't tell the kids, but Santa Claus isn't real and Pixar is fallible. Oct 7, 2011 Full Review Cars 2 | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Cory Woodroof For the Win (USA Today) It’s not awful, but it just felt so perfunctory to the point of apathy. Mar 1, 2024 Full Review Cars 2 | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review It may not live up to the usual sophistication associated with the animation studio, but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad film. Rated: 3/4 Mar 12, 2023 Full Review Cars 2 | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Petrana Radulovic Polygon It's all the delight of a spy movie, but with the added fact of Oh right, they're all cars!

Josue M Whatever people say that Cars 2 is bad, I do like the movie Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 06/07/24 Full Review João Victor u O filme é um pouco exagerado em alguns pontos, mas não deixa de ser bom. Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/04/24 Full Review Jeovanni D Cars 2 is not commented has a good project, I didn't think that through since my younger age and it doesn't deserve its message on such an annoying subject focusing on a Hill Billy ruining the action on what it was going for. I mean, at least the beginning was pretty much entertaining but no point on the rest of the writing. Rated 0.5/5 Stars • Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/31/24 Full Review Nathaniel S Not only is Cars 2 a cinematic masterpiece with its great range of characters, musics, and villains, but it also creates a great message. Tow mater is an awesome protagonist who I really resonated with as we are both rather charming, deceitful, and slow in the brain. It changes up the perspective from a snobby, racer named lighting McQueen to a more down to earth sigma such as Tow Mater. The baddies in this film will brick you up on a whole different level Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/29/24 Full Review Aidan B While certainly not as bad as others may make it out to be, "Cars 2" is still far from perfect and is one of the weaker Pixar sequels released. Rated 3/5 Stars • Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/25/24 Full Review Carlojulio S Queria carreras no espias!! Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 05/25/24 Full Review Read all reviews
