All the cast are back for the third outing in the Cars franchise, Owen
Wilson is Lightening McQueen, the racing car that just can’t be beaten on
the race track. However time has moved on and Lightening isn’t as fast as
he used to be and young upstarts are starting to make him look and feel
When he wins the Piston Cup for the umpteenth time his thunder is stolen by
rookie race car, Jackson Storm (Arnie Hammer) and when a high-speed
collision forces him to retire to Radiator Springs things don’t look too
good for him.
Memories of his one-time mentor Doc Hudson (Paul Newman who is eerily
voiced by himself using outtakes’ from the first film) force him into
making a comeback. So along with tow truck Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) and
his sweetheart Sally (Bonny Hunt) Lightening heads off to the Rust-eze
Racing Center so that he can train in order to get himself ready for
upcoming races that just might, if he wins, put him back on the top of the
race car pile.
Cars 3 won’t disappoint children brought up with the cars film. The action
moves along at a fair pace and there’s plenty of jokes to keep them happy.
The quality of the animation is simply stunning at times with some of the
backgrounds looking like they came from a live action film.
Cars 3 might not be the classic that the original was but there’s enough
here to keep the young ones happy during the school holidays.
