  • Cars 2 delivers stunning AV quality with reference HD video and excellent DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1, but the story lacks emotional depth; the 5-disc 3D combo pack is recommended for fans.

  • Video: 80

  • Disney and Pixar deliver an exceptional video presentation for 'Cars 2' with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that boasts vibrant colors, razor-sharp clarity, impeccable contrast, and deep blacks. The detail is astounding, free of compression errors such as artifacting, banding, and aliasing, making it a visual masterpiece.

  • Audio: 80

  • The DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track in "Cars 2" delivers an arresting and immersive auditory experience with pitch-perfect dialogue, convincing ambiance, and dynamic directional effects. The bass, from gunfire to roaring engines, is both weighty and nimble, enhancing Michael Giacchino's spy-movie score.

  • Extra: 50

  • While the two-disc edition of 'Cars 2' offers only a handful of bonus features, such as an in-depth Audio Commentary and entertaining shorts like 'Hawaiian Vacation' and 'Air Mater', the more extensive extras are reserved for the exclusive 5-disc 3D combo pack, making it essential for fans seeking comprehensive special features.

  • Movie: 60

  • While 'Cars 2' dazzles with stunning visuals and thrilling action sequences, its shift from heartfelt Americana to a spy thriller lacks the nuanced storytelling and character depth that defines Pixar's best. Despite Mater's comedic antics and a fascinating homage to the spy genre, the film ultimately pales in comparison to Pixar’s stellar legacy.
