It’s been 11 long years since the very first Cars. It won our hearts right away. Lightning McQueen and the Hudson Hornet did all they could to bring a younger generation into the car scene. Radiator Springs. Aah! Heaven.
Sadly, the second instalment; Cars 2 was a total flop. It was nothing like the first one. A total disappointment. It didn’t have a plot whatsoever and was a total snooze fest.
Hopes were high then, for the latest movie.
Lightning McQueen returns as a grandpa. Newer cars enter the race and that leaves the veterans nowhere. McQueen finds himself with a new sponsor and gets a whole new livery [Surprise Livery At The End]. The movie is very kid friendly and has a dollop of emotions dialled into it. Owen Wilson does a great job as McQueen. As Usual.
Cruz Ramirez is a new character and adds a sweet little side to the movie. Lewis Hamilton also makes a surprise appearance as Cruz’s assistant. A bit like Siri for a car that tracks Lightning’s performance data. The movie surrounds these too, and their training to defeat Storm..
All in all, a genuinely nice movie. Watch this one. You won’t regret it. You just won’t. Disney and Pixar have done an impeccable job! Thumbs UP!
