Kids: 3 and 4 - The first Cars movie was a near perfect movie for kids. "Fish out of water", strong socialization lessons, and trying your best would have made an excellent story, amazingly Pixar also chose to produce a movie with no bad guy, (Chick Hicks was overly competitive and a bad sportsman, my kids understood he was being bad, but not scared of him), that made for a great movie. It’s literally the only disc the kids watch repeatedly and we have also had to replace it once due to just wear. Find another movie with no villain, no violence, and can keep kids engrossed for 2 hours…
When we saw the Cars2 was coming out the whole family was very excited, especially since this was going to be their first movie. Sadly however, the movie was far too violent and the story too outrageous for anything but a zero rating. The level of violence, harsh language, and general scariness, make this movie unwatchable for anyone concerned about violent content or adult themes. I sat dumbfounded as the movie goes from bad to worse, to omg I can’t believe they just did that while my son sat confused and uneasy watching his favorite characters fight for their lives. It was horrible.
They should have just stuck with the alternative fuel green message, and did three races for the world champ, that would have been great.
In the end, we slogged through it, but that night he said that he never wanted to see it again, ever , and all he liked was the movie were Lightning fixed the road. Thank goodness we have the DVD.
Zero stars an apology from Steve L., and a full refund if it were possible.
