Cars

From Pixar/Disney, the tale of a cocky, success driven young race car Lightning McQueen (Wilson) who, on his way to a Championship race in California, crashes his, um, himself, in the sleepy town of Radiator Springs - destroying some of the inhabitant's belongings. This is no good say the townsfolk, and to make amends he is ordered to stick around for community service.

Despite stars in his eyes, McQueen resigns to hanging in Radiator Springs where he meets the locals. The friendships he forms, teach him there are more important things in life than trophies and accolades.

Odd but entertaining

This inspiring tale of how a sentient race car went from self obsessed jerk to friendly kind and helpful is rather weird although never ceases to impress. It has good characters, good morals and fairly decent animation too. Whilst it does raise many questions these can be ignored and an enjoyable viewing experience shall greet you. It was certainly far...

Pixar are awesome

This is yet another great film from Pixar. Lightning McQueen is a top race car and he ends up stuck is Radiator Springs forced to fix their town before he can get back to the Piston Cup. He meets a lot of fun characters along the way and realizes there is more to life than racing. This is a fun film for all ages. I highly recommend it

I can't quite share other's enthusiasm for Cars. There is no doubt Pixar have again set the technical bar - the scenery is breathtaking, the animation is brilliant. But a film, and in a lot aways especially a kids film, can't stand on this alone.

The most interesting aspect to the film was the themes of nostalgia it touched on - this also...

I'm happy to give this movie four stars...brilliant animation..just examine the crowd shots at the stadium and you will see just how much attention there is to detail when the main characters are holding forth centre screen. Its a smaltzy tale, with a moral anyone over the age of ten can understand. Great characters, including the folksy, beaten up tow...

The best animation I have seen this year, possibly the best Pixar film yet. The Kids will love it and the big kids (adults) will enjoy it to.

Another Disney classic film one for the archives. SEE IT NOW!!!!!

Periodic bursts of cleverness brighten the festivities, but they're too few and far between, and the trademark humor that appeals to adults and kids often misfires...

What Cars teaches is how to blend brash comedy with technical astonishments so that each enhances the other. I can't imagine who wouldn't want to test-drive this one...

While Cars renders its vehicle-only world with obvious affection and detail, it also feels too laboured in its storytelling...

It might not be way up there in "The Incredibles"/"Finding Nemo"/"Toy Story" stratosphere, but the charming "Cars" is nevertheless a thoroughly pleasant way to mark Pixar Animation Studios' 20th anniversary...

Judged against previous form, this is not Pixar firing on all cylinders, lacking the sophisticated comedy we’ve come to expect. Judged against fare from other studios, however, it’s a triumph...

The script, usually Pixar's secret weapon, is a surprisingly lame affair that substitutes endless automotive puns for real wit. The only bright spot in the tedium is Paul Newman, on magisterial form as a retired racer with a dark secret..
