Cars 2 - Movie Review

Rev up your engines because the confident race car Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) and his best pal Tow Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) are back in an exciting, fast-paced sequel brought to you by Disney Pixar Animation Studios. McQueen returns to Radiator Springs after winning the Piston Cup only to be challenged to another race. With the support his friends, he accepts and heads overseas with Mater to participate in the first World Grand Prix that takes them to Japan, Italy and England to rub fenders with some of the world's first class cars. Clearly out of his element, Mater embarrasses McQueen. Mater gets split up from McQueen as he accidentally gets involved with international espionage due to mistaken identity. Mater joins British intelligence agents Finn McMissile (Michael Caine) and Holley Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer) as they investigate a mysterious and danger plot to take down the World Grand Prix participants. Mater will have to gather up the courage to become an all-star car to be able to save McQueen from the ultimate engine combustion.

Cars 2 is a very entertaining movie. It may be impossible for Pixar to make a bad film! Compared to other Pixar movies, it may be at the bottom of the scale but it still is a wonderful movie to watch especially if you are a Pixar fan. It was fast-paced and action packed, accompanied with an awesome soundtrack. The story was interesting but a little forced and this time clearly centred around the funny and direct Tow Mater. It doesn't have as much emotion as previous Pixar films but it still had its moments. The film was really funny and had jokes that both kids and adults would appreciate. Movie buffs will also spot a lot of Easter eggs hidden throughout the film. The animation was amazing and the 3D effects were fantastic especially when going really fast in the races and during explosions. Overall, Cars 2 is a very fun, entertaining summer movie that the whole family will enjoy.

Cars 2 races into in theatres this Friday, June 24, 2011!
