Cars 2 was probably Pixar's worst production in general. I remember watching that shit a few years ago and we were all like *facepalm*. It's shallow, lacks substance, and just has a lot of random violence and fighting. The story line is not intuitive.
But I was struck most by this horrible torture scene where a car's RPM capacity is severely exceeded which causes eventually it to blow up. It has 4 levels and as you can see in the video, the first level is already red zoning the poor car at about 7,500 rpm...
I saw on other reviews that people were surprised that this was G-rated and I'd agree. Overall, this movie has way too much violence for it to be G-rated. But this torture scene really makes that rating questionable. I heard that some little children were stunned by the movie and some even left early because it was too much for them.

I didn't think the torture was too bad, but the fact that they murdered him (and used the word "kill" so there's no ambiguity about what's going on) at the end was kinda not so G rated in my opinion. I guess they can get away with it since they're just cars but still...
That's unfortunate because I remember the first one being really good. Never saw the second though.1
