Cars 3 | Ratings & Reviews

"The first Cars film won’t be at the top of anyone’s list of favourite Pixar films while Cars 2 is almost guaranteed to be at the bottom. This third film pretends that sequel never existed, switching back to what worked in the original. However, Cars 3 has a trick up its glovebox that makes this film the best of the series."

""Cars 3" is very much a tale of mentorship, of learning how to give up your ego in order to bolster someone else's. As such, it's touching in a pleasingly formulaic, pass-the-torch way."


"It's all well and good for the under-12s, but this movie never packs the kind of emotional punch we know Pixar is capable of."

Time OutTime Out

"If you can roll with it, the movie is both breezy fun and a pain-free life lesson delivery vehicle."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Cars 3 does just enough, late in the day, to be considered an adequate sequel to Cars."


"In "Cars 3," champion racer Lightning McQueen grapples with the possibility that his glory days are behind him - an uncomfortably apt metaphor for a franchise that has run out of gas."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"The end goal this time out isn't just to sell a few more toys and Lightning McQueen lunchboxes. It's actually tapping into something deeper than a corporate bottom line."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"This warmly sentimental G-rated film about facing new realities and recapturing lost dreams has, despite its relatively adult story line, a beguilingly effortless feeling to it, as if it had nothing to prove."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"While visually dynamic, Lightning McQueen's newest challenge still feels out of alignment with a languid end result that lacks sufficient forward momentum."
