Cars 3

Animation, Adventure, Comedy

Lightning McQueen sets out to prove to a new generation of racers that he's still the best race car in the world.

The critical consensus

It works best as a brochure promoting state-of-the-art animation; routine chases are enlivened by vibrant textures, while the gleaming settings are ingeniously rendered to catch a child's eye.

By driving back to the core homespun wisdom of Cars, the third film is a course correct from the second. But this is still not vintage Pixar.

Cars 3 itself is a sprightly and likeable film because it shares Lightning’s self-effacing qualities and his nostalgic fondness for looking at life through the rear view mirror.

Well-intentioned and amiable, this latest instalment in Pixar’s animated auto series is the threequel no one was crying out for.

A rocky start but a really beautiful and unexpected conclusion.

The world’s favourite talking vehicles are showing their age in this latest animated joyride.

**(*)(*)(*)Simran Hans, The Observer, 16/07/2017

Pixar’s least essential franchise gets back on track with a polished but disposable threequel.

***(*)(*)Neil Smith, Total Film, 16/07/2017

It’s time the studio got back to making original movies.
