Cars 2
Cars 2 In this computer animated sequel, Finn McMissile (voiced by Michael Caine), a British superspy, stumbles upon some kind of secret plan involving a huge oil dig in the middle of the ocean. It's connected directly to a new race, in which Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson). will take on the boastful Italian car Francesco Bernoulli (voiced by John Turturro), both using a new kind of alternative fuel. An American spy car, 'Torque' Redline (voiced by Bruce Campbell) is supposed to pass some secret photos to McMissile, but he's compromised, and slips the photos to Mater, the tow truck  (voiced by Larry the Cable Guy).

And so Mater becomes a reluctant spy, along with McMissile, and agent Holley Shiftwell (voiced by Emily Mortimer), who has left her desk for the first time to work in the field. Mater's homespun "wisdom" comes to his rescue each time, and his new colleagues think he's a genius. Meanwhile, Lightning and Mater have a fight and Lightning spends the rest of the movie moping about it. His races take a definite backseat to the sluggish spy story, and all the stuff about their friendship feels forced.

But the subplot about sustainable alternative fuels is valid and there are some other good things about Cars 2. It has a terrific sense of speed and weight and use of space and the races are as exciting as ever. An additional cast of impressive voice actors lends some class to the production including: Eddie Izzard, Joe Mantegna, Franco Nero, Tony Shalhoub, Vanessa Redgrave, and others. But basically Cars 2 has little soul, and isn't much more than a one-joke wonder. This is probably Pixar's weakest movie, but it will surely entertain younger audiences, especially boys.
