Cars 2 – A Sequel That Might Just Be Better Than the Original
Cars 2 will be released to DVD/blu-ray November 2 and our youth film critics cannot say enough great things about it. Watch his online review, his interview with John Lasseter and the Cars 2 crew or read below to see what KIDS FIRST! film critic Anthony Aranda, age 9 has to say:
I just got finished watching an amazing movie called “Cars 2”! Race car Lightning McQueen and his best friend Mater travel to compete in the World Grand Prix. Cars 2 brings back our favorite car friends in this excellent adventure movie!
My favorite characters are Lightning McQueen, Mater, and Finn McMissile. I like Lightning McQueen because he is really fast and he is really friendly. I like Mater because he is a really funny character and he doesn’t always know what’s going on. But even if he doesn’t know what’s going on he is always the best friend McQueen could ever have. I like Finn McMissle because he is a great spy car and he helps Mater to see who he really is. Mater realizes that he is perfect just the way he is.
My favorite part of this movie is when Mater is being a spy and gets into a fire fight with the bad cars, but not on purpose! He says, “Dag Gum,” and then a gun pops out of his truck. Then he said, “Oh shoot,” and then the gun starts shooting! And then he said, “Not that kind of shoot,” and then a parachute popped out of his truck and he started to fly away. It was sooo funny!
The animation and special effects in this movie are really cool. The bright lights and colors in the cars is amazing. The opening scene where Crabby is coming through the ocean is really cool. They had to use a lot of computer graphics in order to make the water actually look like it is waves. And of course the explosions are super cool.
I would recommend this movie for ages three and up. This movie does have some violence but it isn’t really scary or noticeable to younger kids. All in all, this is a great family movie that shows friendship and teamwork. Go out and buy this movie when it comes out on Disney DVD and Blu Ray.
