But while they are in Japan, Mater crosses paths with Holly Shiftwell, a spy searching for an American spy. Unknown to Mater, the American spy attached a tracking device on him while being attacked. Thinking the tow truck is the spy, Holly and another spy, Finn McMissile, take Mater around the world to find and stop an evil plot created by “lemons,” old cars considered ugly.

One review

  • Cars 2 was a very good and memorable movie. It had a focus on Mater, Lightning McQueen’s best friend, in the sequel, which was a slight rehash of the original Cars, but I think John Lasseter has made a good decision on making a sequel and done a really good effort and he is cleaning up his act to make up for making needless and annoyingly Americanised dubs on Studio Ghibli films, which I think was a bad decision Lasseter made, which is a big consolation and it made up his talent. Keep up the good work, Mr Lasseter, and may I wish you and Pixar the best in the future.

    The negative was there was a tiny rehash on the original Cars at the end.

    The positives were there was plenty of action, the new characters were good, the voice cast featuring Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, Michael Caine, etc was excellent, the music by Michael Giacchino was very cinematic, the animation was well done and the agent story was quite entertaining.

    Overall, the sequel to Cars is a film I highly recommend for any Pixar, Cars and John Lasseter fan, like me. You will not be disappointed
