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.

Cars 2 is as visually appealing as any other Pixar production, but all that dazzle can't disguise the rusty storytelling under the hood.

16 years ago, Pixar Animation Studios released the first feature length computer animated film in history, Toy Story. What followed was an incredible run of success, an 11 film hot streak that yielded dozens of awards (including 11 Oscars), billions of dollars in box office receipts, and the admiration of audiences and critics everywhere. Year after year...

Really good movie for kids, there is a lot going on but not so much for the adults. It is very pretty to look at but the story is not as good as the first one!
