Cars: Ultimate Cars Giftset--DVD, Blu-ray Movie Review

11/08/2009 Posted by Admin

Flat tire.

Pixar's beautiful-looking yet boring computer-animated movie is the weakest in its collaboration with Disney. You can't win them all, and this time, the studios haven't even come close.

Sandbagged by a joyless mid-section that goes nowhere, this dull movie fails to offer much in the way of wit, energy, heart and entertainment. Some will understandably rent or buy the new giftset version of the movie, which includes two discs (the film on Blu-ray and on DVD) and also two cars, one a die-cast model of Lightning McQueen, the other of Mater, but it’s all just hoopla. The movie has none of the innovation of, say, "The Incredibles" or “WALL-E,” nor does it have the spirit of the "Toy Story" movies and "Finding Nemo."

"Cars" tries for a mix of both, but since it's so focused on achieving the best in cutting-edge animation (which it does), it fails to remember what matters--the story and characters--and so it creates the odd movie you forget while watching it.

Rated G: Grade: C
