Star racer Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) and his trusty tow-truck sidekick Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) return in Pixar's sequel, leaving Radiator Springs behind to take part in the first ever World Grand Prix. However, while souped-up motors battle it out on the circuits of Japan and Europe, Mater becomes unwittingly embroiled in the shady world of international espionage after a chance meeting with slick super spy Finn McMissile (Michael Caine). What follows is a convoluted story with perhaps too much plot getting in the way of the fun, and lengthy stretches of dialogue interrupting the pace of the movie. Director John Lasseter delivers some exciting race sequences set in, among other places, Paris and London, but the stop-start nature of the yarn results in a rare instance of Pixar failing to fire on all cylinders.
Racing car Lightning McQueen heads overseas to compete in an international grand prix, with events in Britain, Japan and Italy. He gets mixed up in international espionage when a case of mistaken identity leads to an encounter with two English spy cars searching for a powerful gadget. Pixar animated adventure sequel, with the voices of Owen Wilson and Michael Caine.
