CARS 3 – What the critics are saying about it!

cars 366% of critics give it a positive rating.

Critics Consensus: Cars 3 has an unexpectedly poignant story to go with its dazzling animation, suggesting Pixar’s most middle-of-the-road franchise may have a surprising amount of tread left.




The final chapter of the trilogy has saved the best for last and will at least deflect the most serious concerns of those who think this series has taken too many extra laps.

Onscreen and in the audience, youth will be served.

It’s a reasonably diverting, somewhat sluggish attempt to reinstall the “heart” of the first installment.

June 16, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

It’s all well and good for the under-12s, but this movie never packs the kind of emotional punch we know Pixar is capable of.

June 16, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

We get a lot of repetitive racetrack scenes – only a demolition derby stands out for the inventiveness of its animation – and a familiar message about believing in yourself.

June 16, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

“Cars 3” hums along the track, and while its heart and humor could use minor tune-ups, it does enough visually to earn a checkered flag and keep this franchise from the scrapheap – for now, at least.

MEGAN LEAVEY – What the critics have to say about the film!

megan_leavey78% of the critics like the film.

“Megan Leavey” isn’t a big, or particularly surprising picture; it sketches out a simple story and then, reliably delivers.

June 9, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

If you’re looking for a good cry, Megan Leavey gets the job done, I suppose. But it’s a bit like a wet kiss from a puppy.

June 9, 2017 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

The film – the feature directorial debut for Gabriela Cowperthwaite, whose orcas-in-peril documentary, Blackfish, struck a nerve – treats the handler/dog relationship with respect, not cheap sensationalism.

June 9, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

With a female-directed, female-driven film this small, criticizing it feels like beating a baby seal. While well intentioned, the human-and-dog interest story lacks narrative drive and star Kate Mara is a limp noodle.

June 9, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The emotion in Megan Leavey is not forced. It flows, up and down the leash, just like it’s supposed to.

June 9, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

“Megan Leavey” works because it takes Leavey seriously as a character, and it studies her journey through her life and through the Marines before Rex is even a factor in the story.
