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.

It's a reasonably diverting, somewhat sluggish attempt to reinstall the "heart" of the first installment.

For the first 15 minutes or so Cars 3 seems like a dash-for-the-cash affair. Then Disney does what they do best: they get viewers emotionally involved with the characters.

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.

Bless Pixar for not acknowledging Cars 2 at all for the duration of this third entry in Pixar's lesser series. Cars, the first film, was folksy and… More
