This is the first Pixar movie ever that I did not totally adore - it was OK, but no more. Below you will find the reasons why - in my personal opinion - "Cars 2" is much weaker than the original.

1. The story, part 1 - producers wanted a car/spy movie referring to James Bond franchise and they got it, but the price for it is a plot both complicated and - for the first time in Pixar's movies - simply stupid! Also, I am certain that smaller children who never watched any James Bond movies (or any spy movies for that matter) will not get the story and get confused. Which is more, all the shooting, crashing, exploding and bombing are in my modest opinion out of place in a kid's movie. And to complete the picture, there is even a quite scary scene of TORTURE and MURDER of a spy car by the bad guys!

2. The story, part 2 - I personally found that some elements of plot are quasi racist! The bad guys (or rather the bad cars) are all the obsolescent marks from countries of former East block (Zigoulis, Zastavas, Yugos, Trabants, etc.), who are ugly, cheap, frequently disfunctionning, leaking oil, etc. They are in fact the lowest proletariat in "Cars" world. Frankly it could be a good idea to make the movie about renovation of those old and rather pathetic cars (like converting them to more ecologic fuels) which could give them some kind of a future and a place in society - but instead they are presented as murderous villains! Now that is a great idea to show your little kids - if somebody is poor and down on his luck, speaks with foreign accent, looks foreign, wear used clothes and obviously suffers, he/she is obviously dangerous and must be destroyed by classy people!

It seems that when it comes to Pixar's film Cars people fall into two camps. You either love it or hate it. I happen to be in the love it camp, so you can imagine how much I've been looking forward to Cars 2. It's a fun film that kids and their parents will enjoy together.

Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) is looking forward to enjoying his off season in Radiator Springs. But then he gets talked into signing up for the first ever World Grand Prix. This event is being sponsored by Sir Miles Axlerod (Eddie Izzard) to show off his new Allinol biofuel.

Lightning invites his best friend Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) along for the three race tour which will have stops in Japan, Italy, and England. He soon begins to regret that when Mater's lack of sophistication causes some embarrassing scenes.

But then Mater accidentally gets caught up in international intrigue. Someone is trying to sabotage the World Grand Prix, and spies Finn McMissile (Michael Caine) and Holley Shiftwell (Emily Mortimer) think Mater is the key to figuring out what it is and stopping it. Are they right or will Mater blow it again?

All the characters from Radiator Springs make at least a cameo appearance here with one notable exception. In memory of Paul Newman, they wrote out his Doc Hudson character as well, although they gave them both a very nice tribute early in the film. In fact, if you pay attention there are lots of nice nods to the original film and a couple of other Pixar films that add to the fun.

And make no mistake about it, this film is fun. The laughs come fast and furious, although as fast as the plot. As with the first film, there are lots of fun twists on the humans are cars thing, especially during a montage early on in Tokyo.

Pixar have yet again reminded the world of how spectacular a film can look. With cars 2 if there is one thing everyone should agree on it is definately the superb settings and vibrant colours of the scenery and cars alike. However when it comes to Cars not everyone can agree on the story element.

In terms of characters and story it was always a risk creating a franchise out of cars. The first one is largely considered to be the weakest of Pixar's output, even though it still outshines most other animated movies. The problem with the whole concept are the characters themselves. Its harder to endear yourself to a car with eyes than it is a fluffy talking animal. This is coming from the point of view of an adult as Im sure a child's prospective will be totally different. There is also the added problem of Mater, who in the original was the buddy/sidekick, now being elevated to fully fledged leading star. He verges on irritating, but to Pixar's credit they reign him in just enough to stop you from wanting to hurl the TV across the room half way through.

The story itself is fun, breezy and action packed and the idea of putting these charcters into the world of spies was an inspired choice. Not only does it allow for some fantastic car chase sequences, but the silly gadgets and weapons do not look out of place here. In fact it fits in so neatly it all but obliterates the memory of the first film and creates a potential new story thread that could be followed in further installments.

The addition of some new characters such as Fin McMissile really adds to the humour. Michael Caine lends his vocal talents and plays it straight which elevates the humour throughout.

Overall its a film well worth seeking out. You could do a lot worse and although the majority of the adult community are split on whether they like Cars or not, any child will fall in love with them all over again.
