Cars 2 - Movie Review

Cars 2 finds Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) jetting off around the world when McQueen is persuaded to join the Grand Prix circuit race that brings them to Tokyo, Paris, Italy and London. The Grand Prix is sponsored by Sire Miles Axlerod, who is hoping to prove his clean fuel Allinol will replace gasoline. Mater gets tangled up with spies Finn McMissile (Michael Caine) and Holley Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer) when he is mistakened for a spy they were supposed to get information from. Someone is targeting the Allinol users and Mater must race to help solve the case before cars get put into danger.

I have never seen the original Cars movie but Cars 2 is well scripted that you don't need to know what happened in the first movie to get your bearings. There is a lot of action in this movie. Michael Caine's Aston Martin character reminded me a lot of James Bond - cool, sauve and full of the coolest gadgets. Like most Pixar movies, there is a lot of humour younger audiences won't understand, so it makes it enjoyable for all ages. I thought it was a great movie, action packed and fun to watch. Looks like another Pixar hit!

Cars 2 comes out into theatres this Friday, June 24th.
