What was to be the last Pixar and Walt Disney collaberation actually turned out to be just another...collaberation. Disney has bought Pixar, so we can expect more from these people.
 
These two studios brought us such masterful animations as, Toy Story, Monster's Inc., Finding Nemo, and The Incredibles. There latest in the world of CG, Cars. And it is the worst film by these people to date.
 
Im not gonna go into detail and break this thing down into levels. Simply, this is whats wrong with the movie. The story has been done about 3 million times. The arrogant character (in this case speed race Lightening McQueen) finds himself in a place where his charisma and popuilarity is not known (Route 66), and he soon befriends the townspeople and learns of his false and selfish ways. We've seen it before, replace people with talking cars, and we've seen it again. C'mon wheres the originality, wheres the great and involving story?
 
Humor. Animated films now a days are great on the humor levels, the underlying jokes, and just the halarious dialouge and situations. Cars, with its trailers, makes you belive you're in for som good laughs, but it lies! No more than two chuckles for this piece of garbage.
 
I will, however, give credit to the animators. Visually its amazing...astounding. The textures and colors may the best out of any animated film to date. But its put to no use with the humorless and washed up story.
 
Out of all the modern CG animated films I have seen, this is the worst.
 
Good Points
-Visually spectacular
 
Bad Points
-No humor
-Un original story
-Cliche in every way.
 
Rating- 4/10

The best in motion picture entertainment
