It is the film of this summer – of any summer.

The Independent on Sunday

Nicholas Barber

Toy Story 3 isn't just a superb cartoon, but a superb comedy, and a superb prison thriller. It could also be, in vertiginous 3-D, the action movie of the summer so far. Beware, though: at times it's also an extremely spooky horror film.

The Los Angeles Times

Kenneth Turan

Lots of connections to other films dot "Toy Story 3," nods to the westerns of John Ford, the animation of Hayao Miyazaki and the kind of prison films where someone plays the harmonica on death row. But more than that, by creating the emotions we have always counted on and so rarely find anymore, this film becomes the kind of love note to movies we want and need.

The Daily Mail

James O'Brien

It is a masterpiece of animation: a sweet, moving, humane story with heartfelt ideas about the importance of imagination, loyalty and responsibility.

The New York Times

A.O. Scott

In providing sheer moviegoing satisfaction — plot, characters, verbal wit and visual delight, cheap laughs and honest sentiment — “Toy Story 3” is wondrously generous and inventive. It is also, by the time it reaches a quiet denouement that balances its noisy beginning, moving in the way that parts of “Up” were.

The truly wonderful Toy Story 3 completes a trilogy.

The Spectator

Deborah Ross

This is a labour of love that extends to every single detail. Each toy moves as, anatomically, such toys would have to move. No incidental character is too incidental. And it’s extremely moving, shamelessly hitting empty nesters right where it hurts.

The Evening Standard

Andrew O'Hagan

Pixar has made a masterpiece. The writing is just so precise and so clever; at every turn there is something moving and funny, something true, and though always sticky with sentiment, the film overcomes even that to become a little anthem to resumed youth.

Nigel Andrews

If there were a Nobel Prize for Digital Animation it would have been won almost every year by Pixar. Toy Story 3D () is more of the same: more gentle brilliance; more perfect eye, ear, mind and heart co-ordination.

Total Film

Neil Smith

One of the best films of the year, Pixar’s long-awaited latest scores in every department. Funny, affecting and dramatically fearless, it’s as fine a threequel as you could hope for. Bring tissues – lots of tissues.

Variety

Peter Debruge

But "Toy Story 3" is best when it's being serious, and the final 15-minute stretch -- from the moment the toys are dumped at a landfill through the tear-jerking finale -- pays off feelings auds invested 15 years ago.

The Guardian

Peter Bradshaw

Nothing deserves its U certificate less than this: Toy Story 3 is a brutally adult movie with brutally adult themes: the origin of evil in childhood pain, the death of childhood and, well, just death.

The Daily Telegraph

Sukhdev Sandhu

Toy Story 3, like WALL-E, Ratatouille and even Cars, attempts a juggling act: redefining digital technology in the service of stories that hanker back to an earlier, analogue era. It doesn’t always pull it off: too often the film’s colours recall those of a gaudy confectionery stand or are over-lit like a boring vision of heaven, and sometimes there’s not enough depth of field (the 3D version doesn’t fully remedy this). Still, by the end, these are minor caveats.

Time Out

Ben Walters

This is also a film willing to flirt with darker matter, including mortal jeopardy at a landfill, freaky clown, monkey and baby toys and a flashback in which a toy feels abandoned.

The Times

Wendy Ide

Those Toy Story folks sure are smart: not just with the camera, but with a script that delivers adult laughter and nostalgia in equal doses and ends with a lump in the throat.

The Sunday Times

Cosmo Landesman

Toy Story 3 is clever without being too self-consciously smart. Nothing is done for pure effect; every part helps to propel the story line along. Most important of all, it refuses to believe that to hold the attention of the young, you have to make it loud, fast and furious — and that to hold the attention of the adults, you have to pile on the irony and pop-culture references.

The New Statesman

Ryan Gilbey

Toy Story 3 has the blues - not just in the area of tone (a Toy Story film devoid of melancholy wouldn't be worthy of the name), but in the resignation expressed through the recycling of themes, plot devices and character types.
