Cars 2

Cars 2
Richland Cinemas-Richland, Pennsylvania
Poor

Disapointing to say the least, in a wierd way. If they had made this movie with a sweet story with all of the sweet characters they had in the last one it would have been great. If they would have made a cool Pixar level Spy movie with new animated "human" characters (think computer animated James Bond) this movie would have been awesome. What they ended up doing was combining these two elements and it did not work at all. Mater was the central character and his character is not strong enough for the main role. Many of the great characters from the original "Cars" movie had small parts in the new one and one of them they needlessly killed off. What purpose is there to killing off an animated character that isn't even human?

In any case watch the 1st "Cars" movie again and forget they ever made this one.

Sorry Pixar, you have your first miss.

Excellent

I haven't been going to the movies as much lately. Partly because I haven't had the time and partly because movies have not been very good lately. I was happy to see Spilberg and JJ Abrams (Sorry about the spelling I don't feel like looking it up) team up because at the very least I knew the movie wouldn't stink! I was right! Even though I wasn't overwelmed with this movie I certainly was not disapointed.
