Cars

As other reviews have suggested, not up to the best of the previous Pixar animated movies, but plenty of charm, humor, and most important, visual imagination and beauty. I have not been as bowled over by Pixar as many critics, though every one of their movies has been entertaining and technically accomplished. The Incredibles was a bit more ambitious and interesting than the first four, but I still thought it may have been a bit overpraised. This one, conversely, may be taking a few hits stronger than it deserves. I much preferred the long, relatively calm middle section of the film, when our cocky sports car hero is stranded in a hick town on Route 66. The opening and closing sequences, with their loud, frantic races, bored me.
