Great sequel! 1/2 star off because the guns may or may not have been necessary. Again, love Larry the Cable Guy.

if you compare Cars 2 to Cars 1, Cars 2 is a looser. Will return early so someone else can watch it.

I liked this cartoon DVD. It is good for all ages. The story was strong. It has a morale story in the script.

The disc I received from the library was damaged and skipped a few seconds to a min (at least) of the film. Other than that, I love Cars 2.

This movie is a part of the Cars trilogy (so far) and I have to say it is one of my favourites when it comes to animated Disney movies. The McQueen crew is back with a bang, but there’s more than just the racetrack in mind. When Mater enrolls McQueen in the World Grand Prix, it takes them all the way to Japan and has Mater feeling on top of the world. But like a typical hotshot, McQueen is embarrassed by Mater’s frank and outspoken ways and tries to tame him down. At the official Grand Prix party, Mater is pulled into the world of spies when an American spy gives him the intel that ultra-spies Finn McMissile and Holly need to bring down evil Professor Z. This is a movie about the importance of friends, family and the feeling of being with the people you can call home, as well as an action packed race against evil and race cars. A great family movie!

“Mater (back in Radiator Springs, introducing Finn and Holly to the rest of the cars): This is Finn McMissile. He's a secret agent (loudly) DON'T TELL NOBODY! (becoming quieter and having a sweeter tone) This is Holly Shiftwell. She's... Holly (interrupting): I'm Mater's girlfriend! It's so nice to meet you all.

Four-time Piston Cup champion race car Lightning McQueen returns home to Radiator Springs and reunites with his best friend Mater and girlfriend Sally Carrera. Doc Hudson is revealed to have died by an indication with Mater and Lightning. Former oil tycoon Miles Axlerod, now a green power advocate, announces a racing series called the "World Grand Prix" to promote Allinol biofuel. When Italian formula race car Francesco Bernoulli challenges McQueen, McQueen and Mater depart to Tokyo, Japan for the Grand Prix.
Meanwhile, the lemons, led by Professor Zündapp and Master mind (whose whereabouts are revealed at the climax), secretly plot to secure their oil profits by using a weapon disguised as a television camera to ignite the Allinol fuel. McMissile and partner Holley Shiftwell attempt to rendezvous with American spy car Rod "Torque" Redline at a World Grand Prix promotional event in Tokyo to receive information about the mastermind; however, Redline is cornered by Zündapp's henchmen and passes his information to Mater before he is captured. Shiftwell and McMissile mistake Mater as their American contact. In capture, Zündapp reveals to Torque that Allinol has one fatal flaw: it can ignite if impacted by a high electromagnetic pulse and uses both to kill him with it but not before they realize that he passed it on to Mater.
