Cars 3 Release Date, Review

After the great success of Cars (2006) and its sequel (2011), as well as two spin-offs Planes (2013) and Planes: Fire & Rescue (2014), we were not surprised that Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios decided to release Cars 3, the latest installment in the popular cartoon series. In the second animated sequel, new and younger cars are in town, but our friend Lightning McQueen wants to prove to them that he is still up for the challenge.

What critics say about Cars 3?

Given that sequels are mostly worse than the original movies and that its prequel received generally negative reviews, it was kind of a surprise that Cars 3 turned out to be such a nice movie.

At this moment, it has an average score of 68% on Rotten Tomatoes by all critics, and 75% by audience, making it as almost as good as the first movie. On iMDB it is rated at 7.2/10, while on Metacritic the movie received mixed reviews with an average score of 59/100.

Critics claim that Cars 3 is a beautiful movie, with stunning visuals, dazzling animation and wonderful voice performances, but with predictable story and lack of humor.

Here’s a short synopsis: A new speedster called Jackson Storm is outpacing the legendary Lightning McQueen on the track. He is young, arrogant, fast and more powerful. Our friend Lightning, with the help of his friends, decides to train as he never trained before to become the number one racer once again.
