Was this bound to happen? Nothing could have topped Toy Story 3. Does Pixar’s first feature after Toy Story 3 have to be so bad? Unfortunately yes. Pixar could not have made modern animated classics for almost 20 years just to produce this film. This has to be someone’s fault. OK maybe I’m being too harsh. It was not that bad, but with Pixar the viewer expects a lot. It’s amusing, it’s comic, it’s ostentatious, it’s filled with fast, spy mischiefs, but it’s also flat, and one-dimensional. I also hate Larry the Cable Guy, whose voice is the primary speaking character in this feature.
However this edition of the film has very few special features.
- Audio Commentary: Found myself warming up to the sequel after listening to such a passionate, enthusiastic overview of its production
- Hawaiian Vacation : A great little Toy Story 3 animated short.
- Air Mater : I don’t know what to say, I could not take any more Mater.
Over all this film was Pixar’s weakest. Do not expect to love this like you love Toy Story or Up, however there is still action and fun to be had with this movie. Cars 2’s fun is more appealing to children than adults.
