Poster for Lightyear

Pixar sci-fi blockbuster loosely based on the popular action figure Buzz Lightyear in the Toy Story series with Chris Evans as the voice of the titular space ranger. From the co-director of Finding Dory, the story follows Buzz attempting to correct a mistake that left a colony of humans stranded on a hostile planet. Also features the voices of Oscar-winner Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit) alongside Emmy-winners Keke Palmer (Nope), Uzo Aduba (Mrs. America) and James Brolin.

It's diverting enough, but it doesn't give you a buzz...

Lightyear is a treat: a time-travelling, space-ranging, animated adventure in the spirit of classic sci-fi.

Lightyear is no Toy Story. It's not even close.

(Lightyear) doesn’t shoot for the moon but manages to be a nostalgic blast anyway.

A visually impressive, escapist riff on the sci-fi epic that, at the very least, might become the favorite movie of some kid, somewhere.

An extremely fun action sci-fi film that is better than most animated films released in a given year... But it also is the first time a Toy Story film has truly felt inessential.

Lightyear is definitely a lark that’s fast enough and fun enough to keep your attention, if adding next to nothing to the Toy Story legacy...

A frustratingly slow, melancholy drama...

Pixar's dreariest, most spiritually empty film to date.

The only reason (Lightyear) falls short of what we've come to expect from Pixar is that they've set their own bar so damn high.

Does Lightyear take us to infinity and beyond? Sadly, no. But it does engage, thrill and amuse, and at times delivers an emotional wallop.
