Synopsis: 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. Mater finds himself torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret mission orchestrated by master British super spy Finn McMissile and the stunning rookie field spy Holley Shiftwell. 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. The fast-paced fun includes a colorful new all-car cast, complete with menacing villains and international racing competitors.
Our thoughts: Both of my boys are huge fans of the first Cars movie so they were super excited to see Cars 2. My husband and I sat down with Brayden and Trevor this past weekend and watched Cars 2 as a family. My husband doesn't usually like to watch kids movies but he liked the first Cars so he was almost as excited as my boys were to see Cars 2.
I don't want to go as far as to say that Cars 2 was better than the first because they were both great movies but I will say they were very different. Cars 2 was a lot more suspenseful and action packed than the first one was. Trevor loves Mater so it was nice to see him as the "star" of Cars 2, unlike the first Cars where it was more about Lightening McQueen.
We really enjoyed this movie and if you have any Cars fans I would definitely recommend picking up Cars 2 for them! You can purchase the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack for $24.99 at Amazon.com.
