Driven by profit instead of pure creativity, Cars 2 lacks Pixar's typical flair for genuine enchantment, compromising insightful characterization and loving warmth for high-octane action. In a thinly drawn and uncharacteristically chaotic plot, the film races through repetitive but visually stunning action sequences with breakneck pace, its passing scenery too blurry for detailed nuance and emotional sincerity. Overly burdened with high-technology gadgets, the utterly silly journeys are sprinkled with platitudinous themes and stale jokes that never extend beyond cultural stereotypes. Undeveloped and belabored, the mechanical characters of C2 are lost amidst the roar of gunfire and whirring engines, hopelessly looking for a road back to PIxar - the studio that brought desk lamps and toys to glorious life. 1.5 out of 4 stars
