Pixar’s Cars 2 opens tomorrow (June 24) across the nation. Although I was certain that I would hate the original, I found Cars to very good – it’s no Toy Story – but I enjoyed it. Therefore, I’m looking forward to viewing the sequel, Cars 2. In that light here is some of the hype leading up to its general release on Friday.

User reviews on IMDB:
We all know that Pixar makes incredible movies, I personally have never disliked a Pixar film. The first “Cars” film, was a great movie, not a perfect film. It was one of the least better films, Pixar has made, but that’s like saying, Insomnia was one of Christopher Nolan’s worst films. I had high expectations when coming to see the film, like I always have before I see a Pixar film.
After my viewing of the film, I have to say Pixar never fails to produce a great, entertaining film. Although it doesn’t reach the heights of Wall-E, Toy Story 3, etc. It still stands by itself pretty high up there. The animation is extremely well done, the look of the film is amazing. The voice actors are great, I miss Paul Newman though. Although the film is not perfect. The movie is not perfect though, the story is not great, but not bad, the movie does not have the emotional as other Pixar films, but it is definitely not a heartless film. But the film is definitely entertaining and a great beginning to 2011 Summer movie season. Take your whole family to see this movie, it will probably not disappoint. It will not only satisfy kids, but also the adults, this film is for everyone. Fun for kids, but the adults can also connect with it and will have a great time watching this movie in theaters. It is quite an adventure and I will be glad to give it a second viewing.
