Cars 2 is racing into theatres everywhere on June 24th!
This past weekend Hurricane Dad and I had the opportunity to attend a screening of Disney Pixar's lastest hit Cars 2 in 3D. I wasn't too sure how I felt about seeing another 3D movie, as the technology left me a little flat when we saw Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. After seeing this Pixar feature in 3D I don't know that I would have wanted to any other way. The combined technologies of Pixar's cutting edge animation style with Real 3D produces nothing less than a spectacular viewing experience. With the added depth at times it was easy to forget you were watching animation. We also were treated a preview of The Lion King in 3D, and it was very worthwhile.
I can say without a doubt that in my opinion this 12th feature-length animated film from this Academy and Golden Globe Award winning studio is another smash hit. Once again pushing the edge with it's eco-based storyline, Pixar takes us on a fast paced action adventure around the world with Lightning McQueen and his best friend Tow Mater. In fact for my husband and I the "sub-plot" of Mater becoming a spy took center stage and really drove the action as well as the comedy in the movie. Fans of Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) will not be disappointed as their anti-hero works to save the day along side super spy Finn McMissile (voice of Michael Caine) while Lightning searches his soul to figure out what it means to be a good friend.
John Lasseter once again the driver’s seat to direct this Cars film and his legendary creativity doesn't disappoint. I thought that the film successfully breached the difficult gap between keeping the attention of adults and children alike, by creating a kid friendly story of friendship that kept the adults laughing right along side their youngsters. There were many hidden gems from a wide variety of Pixar's Films to be found throughout, so you can be sure that easter egg hunters will not be disappointed.
I wasn't a huge fan of the first Cars movie, but Cars 2 was a fantastic romp around the globe set to some really rockin' music, that kept me laughing along the way. Cars 2 opens in theaters everywhere on this Friday June 24th, see it!
