I felt Pixar's, Cars 2 should have posted a sign, "No adults Allowed".

It's going to work very well for young kids, but I felt it lost most of its magic touch for grown-ups.

The picture is certainly technically impressive and has a few pleasures of course, like the gorgeous scenery shown around the world.

But the long, tiresome ho hum sequel just goes off in too many directions and was the main disappointment for me.
Sequels are sequels, but this one is better than the original.

The spy story is a positive advancement over the overly sentimental Doc Hollywood ripoff storyline of the original.

Faster paced with way-better humor, this one leaves Radiator Springs to expose a world of possibilities.

It's still about friendship and being "a fish out of water," but lacks the languid pace of its predecessor.

Not perfect, but quite an improvement.
The new animated sequel, Cars 2 is a good family friendly movie about the fantasy of talking cars.

Disney/Pixar director, John Lasseter got the idea while traveling the globe promoting the 2006 original.

If you want to capture the make-believe, unreal, globe-trotting flair, you need to think back to when you were a kid and filled with imagination.

The film is complex:; it mixes concerns about fossil fuels with spycraft, with some fun, art, and the romance of traveling the world layered with the thrill of Grand Prix racing: where winning is not everything.
