I feel like It's not worth makeing a whole new topic about this, but I want to discuss why Cars 2 isn't as bad as people claim.
First off, probably the main reason people dislike it is because it's completely different then the original movie. Other then that, I searched up on Internet, and could not find any other valid reason for why people don't like it. But here is why I like this movie more then the original, and why it's one of my favourite (if not my top favourite) Pixar film:
First off, I have to say, I LOVE SPY MOVIES. Seeing Pixar do a spy movie was something I never dreamed of. But then they done it... and it hit my heart. Even if you hate this movie, I don't see how you can dislike the theme song:
Really, I am not going to lie, but I like this theme more then Mission Impossible theme!
Arguably this is one of Pixar's best movie themes (My 2nd favourite probably being Incredibles)
Ok, now let's get to my 2nd point: Mater
Another reason people don't like this movie is beacuse, well... of Mater. But I will tell you this: Mater is a fun character that deserves his own movie. Seeing his character develop as the movie progresses was arguably good. And this movie helped Mater. I love his character, and seeing him take the main role was more fun then I could have expected...
And now... When I watch this movie, I don't think of it as trying to be Cars. I am thinking of this movie as being a Spy Cars. You know the Planes movie, right? Well, I see this movie as rather being a stand alone Pixar film rather then a sequel.
And I can't stop loving Finn McMissle. He is such a cool character... He is pretty much a Cars version of James Bond's car, which It SO COOL. Seeing him always have a pair of Machine Guns at every moment is so much fun...
Also, Holley is a cool character as well.
I loved both of this characters, and to be honest, I was very disappointed when they didn't make an appearance in Cars 3...
Now in the end, people say Cars 3 was better then this movie... But to be honest, Cars 3 was a boring unnecessary sequel to me. And seeing it so much ahead of Cars 2 kinda makes me angry. Cars 2 is miles better then Cars 3.
This movie is also very well made, keeping the quality of the Pixar movies. Again, this isn't a bad movie by any means... It's only the Cars fans who despise it, for not keeping the elements of the original Cars. If you saw this movie before the original, I guarantee you won't dislike it.
As a conclusion, I can understand why people don't like this movie as much as the other Pixar movies, but being regarded as the worst Pixar movie isn't exactly the way to go... Even if you personally don't like it, this movie itself isn't bad in any way.
What do you personally think about this movie? If you hate it, can you please tell me why?
