Since I received my review copy from Disney last week Cars 2 has not left our home Bluray Player or Car DVD Player. I have seen this movie atleast 50 times and you know what? I have enjoyed it every time it has been on.
Cars 2 is one of those movies where a lot is going on to take in with just watching one time. There are many subtle jokes, things going on in the background, and plot lines to follow. While the first Cars movie was pretty simple in the delivery Cars 2 smashes that mold and goes right for the Action/Spy Movie fan in me!
In case you missed Cars 2 in the box office or like that Geiko Commercial been living under a rock here is the Synopsis of the movie:
Star racecar Lightning McQueen and the incomparable tow truck Mater take their friendship to exciting new places in Cars 2 when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world’s fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage.
Torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. Adding to the fast-paced fun is a colorful new all-car cast that includes secret agents, menacing villains and international racing competitors.
There are so many characters in this movie which is great. Each Car brings in a new element to the movie. My favorite character was Francesco Bernoulli. The conversations between Lightening & Francesco reminded me of Cars 1 with Chick Hicks but way more funny.
Between a huge cast, international espionage, and some good old racing Cars 2 is my #1 Animated Movie of the Year.
If the movie alone wasn’t good enough the bonus content on the Bluray is spectacular! You don’t get just one Disney/Pixar Short you get 2!
- Car Toons – Air Mater
- Toy Story Short – Hawaiian Vacation
I about spit out my drink when the end of Air Mater came on the screen. Somebody should make a movie about it 😉
There is also an interactive “World Tour” map that takes you through 9 different locations, including those featured in the film and more. A global thrill-ride, it allows viewers to go behind-the-scenes with the Pixar artists and filmmakers as they circle the globe finding inspiration for the most international of all Pixar films to date.
Finally Cars 2 is also the first Pixar film to be released in spectacular Blu-ray 3D. If my wife is reading this I like the 60″ Samsung 3D LCD TV!
Overall Cars 2 is one heck of a ride that doesn’t get old. It is still going strong at home and in our car for our little one. Surprisingly you think Cars is just for boys but she doesn’t mind watching it and neither do I 🙂
