    Synopsis


    Cars 2
    This sequel to the 2006 hit follows racing legend Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and his trusty sidekick, Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) as they secure their passports and take part in the biggest race on the planet. As the first-ever World Grand Prix approaches, cars from every continent prepare for the ultimate competition. But who will have what it takes to become the fastest car on the planet? Just as Lightning McQueen edges up to the starting line, however, his old pal Mater gets sidetracked on a top-secret spy mission that takes him from Japan to Europe as the entire world watches. Thankfully Mater's friends are always willing to lend a helping wheel, and as the race gets under way, everyone shifts into high gear to help out an old friend. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      First Disney/Pixar disappointment

      When I first heard they were making a sequel to the 2006 Cars film I was surprised. I liked the original film BUT is not at the top of the Disney/Pixar films. For me, second to last just ahead of 1998's A Bugs Life. Other films would have made for better sequels. Perfect example 2004's The Incredibles. You could have had a story there. This story made no sense what's so ever. We adults figured out the ending of who the bad guy or should I say bad car was I will NOT say it here so there are NO spoilers in this review. McQueen back in Radiator Springs. Next race & he takes Mater & other with him. BUT, the rest of the story. 2 time Oscar winner Michael Caine could have phones the voice work in on a role he can do in his sleep. How stupid Mater is, breaking up friendships & pushing other fuels in a mess of a story that just did NOT make sense. The positive I give to the video makers. At least they released the DVD the same as the blu ray. This TERRIBLE, I COMPLAIN ABOUT IT EVERY TIME IT HAPPENS, MISTAKE OF RELEASING A BLU RAY EARLIER THAN THE DVD, was not done here. The DVD was NOT the plain jane silver ones Disney has been doing when they make those blu-ray earlier releases. You get a real colorful DVD. No chapter search list a mistake. A few extras on it, nothing major. But, when the film was disappointment. Did not live up to the expectations , since 2006 the Disney/Pixar releases have been coming out in May or June and did great business. This one did come in first place for the opening weekend, but the final numbers. When you see the film you will understand why still a hit movie it just was not normal Disney/Pixar material.

      Great Sequel to Cars

      The thing I love about this movie and its prequel is that the producers (director, writers, etc) obviously have spent a lot of time not only watching racing, but in cars doing road trips. The first movie had many small details that you would only know by being both a passenger and a driver - and they got the engine sounds really well. The second is no different, in fact it is even more broad. I was very impressed with all the drivers and driver-commentators who voiced in this one (Lewis Hamilton, Jeff Gordon, David Hobbs, etc), and of course the additional pro actors for this title were excellent also (Michael Caine, Eddie Izzard, John Turturro to name a few). Plus they got the most important race inspiration if you're going to Europe - *Monaco* and its gorgeous harbor, site of the F1 Grand Prix which would be the clear choice if I could only watch one race a year. This is a 2-disc, so I'm certain the extra features are superb (though I have not yet checked them out entirely). But as a blu ray, it looks and sounds wonderful - which makes up for not getting around to watching this in the theater (where it must have been astounding). What I love about this and its prequel, and Pixar movies in general, is they get the tone right, especially by writing in lots of jokes that you have to be a grown-up to get, but enough silliness that kids will enjoy it too. And there are so many great references to other movie classics... plus a whole spy subplot which I always like. I would show this movie to anyone.

      Mater...Tow Mater

      This is another good PIXAR movie. In Cars 2, the World Grand Prix has drawn racers from around the world and Mater is mistaken for a secret agent. Mater takes the spotlight this time and has some fun mis-adventures as a spy. There's the light-hearted slapstick humor and the more ironic humor of two top British spies thinking that Mater himself is a spy. All in all, this is a fun and entertaining movie that I highly recommend for the whole family. My advice is to ignore the critics. The critics are totally wrong about this movie. This is not the deepest or most socially significant movie ever made, but the critics have forgotten that a movie can sometimes just be fun to watch and still be a quality motion picture. My advice, decide for yourself about Cars 2! Don't let critics decide what movies you like for you, you are free to like Cars 2! The only extras in this set are the animated shorts 'Toy Story Hawaiian Holiday' where the Toy Story gang helps out a couple of thier friends and 'Air Mater', where Mater tells the tall Tale of his adventure in a town full of airplanes #a town of planes, I wonder if anyone will make a movie about that?#. You also get a sneak peek at the next PIXAR movie 'Brave'. I highly recommend this movie for a good time. This is a movie both children and adults can enjoy.

      The movie, is what is is, just okay compared to the first Cars movie. That said, the issue with this set, is the 3-D disc, it skips/jumps - you simply can not view it. I updates my player, exchanged it 3 different times, and still no luck. The number to Disney Blu-Ray support it not easy to find, and when you do, they really have poor canned answers as to what the problem is, and they essentially fault the manufacturers of the players for not having current firmware updates for the players. I have the highest end player available, and it is updated and still no luck. Disney is basically saying that their technology is so advanced that nothing can play the disc. They say their have been minimal complaints, buit any web search will show that that is any thing from the truth. Disappointing from a company like Disney, and very disappointing for my 6 year old!!

      Good but a little forced

      I purchased this movie for my son's birthday. He already was a huge fan of Cars and his younger sister is, too. They found Cars 2 entertaining and my son will reach for Cars 2 when he wants to watch a movie. At first, I couldn't sit down long enough to watch this movie in entirety. I finally watched it and then re-watched it with the kids. I wouldn't say it's the best kid's movie I've ever seen, but it's entertaining. Some parts are a little annoying and contrived, but overall enjoyable ( if you can look past those scenes). It's a decent family movie and does a good job of keeping the kids entertained while I'm busy. This has a four star rating, because, I received my package quickly and in great condition.

      I liked Cars 2 better than the original. The visuals by Pixar/Disney were excellent. This is a great as a Spy Film spoof. There are many references to live action spy films to look for in this film (some are obvious). Those unfamiliar with old spy films will probably not be able to relate to the humor in this film. This movie is an entertaining outing with characters we learned to love from the first Cars movie, just don't look for a serious plotline.

      I understand the appeal of Disney/ Pixar movies. I love the Toy Story franchise, but Cars is no Toy Story. The plot was hard to sit through, the acting was forced (keep in mind its an animated movie), and the overall feel after viewing the movie was of immediate regret. But that didn't mean that my 4 year old son didn't have me in line the day the 3D Blu- Ray came out. The Toy Story short at the beginning of the movie was good, but not worth the $35.

      Cars 2 is technically a decent movie, the visuals are top notch and it looks beautiful on our new TV. However, the story is pretty lame and centers around Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) who I find annoying in any setting. My kids like the movie well enough, but one of the cars is straight up murdered early in the movie and my youngest son found this upsetting. It's the worst Pixar movie by far, but not the worst kids movie in general.
