After the dumbness that was Cars 2, it really seemed like this franchise was on its way out, and some people were happy with it that way, as the first one was already a strange concept, but unlike Cars 2, the first one felt right at home with the other masterpieces by Pixar. This movie, while it is definitely a massive step up from Cars 2, isn't quite up to speed to make the Cars franchise as good as other ones from Pixar. This movie, ultimately, is just okay. I saw many negative reviews for this film and I don't nessecarily agree with them, as this is still an adequate Pixar film and it's no where near there worst, but I also don't agree with those that gives this movie 9s or 10s out of 10, because this film is no where near as exciting as other Pixar films. The story in this film is poignant and surprisingly well written, considering that Cars 2s story was just dumb across the board. But the fact that this film goes back to being heart wrenching and involving really shows that Pixar has learned from their mistakes and I applaud them for that. The visuals are absolutely gorgeous as they are crisp, colorful, and well detailed. However, while all this sounds well and good, the main problem with this film that keeps it from being anything great is the pacing. This movie, despite it conveying a great message, as well as looking and sounding nice, can take a while to get exciting. It drags on so damn long in the first act and ultimately becomes more boring rather than engaging, which is a shame, considering that the story, like I said, is great. This film also reuses some of the same aspects of the first film, which can seem a bit lazy. Overall, this film can feel dull at times and is not as exciting as I wish it was. However, despite all that, this film is still decent enough for me to recommend to fans of this franchise, but for everyone else, this movie may or may not be for you. Overall, despite it being a bit rough around the edges, this is still a decent film, albeit flawed.
