Cars 2 3D

Sequel to Disney/Pixar's 2006 Cars. Racing star Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and tow truck Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) head overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix - the winner to be named the world’s fastest car. Presented in 3D.

But things go awry when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Torn between assisting Lightning in his high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater finds himself on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world.

The rare sequel that not only improves on but retroactively justifies its predecessor, this lightning-paced caper-comedy shifts the franchise into high gear with international intrigue, spy-movie spoofery and more automotive puns than you can shake a stickshift at, handling even its broader stretches with sophistication, speed and effortless panache.

Caine is a great addition to the group and I'd welcome him back for more as he brings a suave appeal to his Finn character; McQueen's not as self absorbed as the first film and Mater really plays to the hillbilly tendencies.

It is not entirely without charm or wit. Directed by John Lasseter (with Brad Lewis credited as co-director) from a script by Ben Queen, Cars 2 lavishes scrupulous imaginative attention on its cosmopolitan settings.

Cars 2 is fun. Whether that's because John Lasseter is in touch with his inner child or mine, I cannot say.

Higher-specced than the first but not as fun as it should be

Cooler cars and more action follow Lightning and Mater as they mix it up with spies and Formula 1 racers in yet another Pixar winner.

Cars 2 looks fantastic, but the studio has never given audiences - especially audiences over the age of 10 - less reason to be emotionally invested in the beautiful shiny things flying across the screen.
