star racer, Lightning McQueen returned to Radiator Springs to reunite with his best friend Mater n girlfriend Sally. at the same time, a racing series called the "World Grand Prix" was announced to promote Allinol, an eco-friendly fuel. with Mater's intervention, Lightning was forced to enter the Grand Prix. things only gotten worst after Lightning agreed to take Mater with him n being repeatedly embarrassed in front of the crowd because of Mater. in the meanwhile, a group of old cars who owned the largest oil field in the world, was secretly plotting to use a weapon disguised as a television camera to ignite the race cars during the Grand Prix.
we were surprised to find out Cars (2006) was coming out with a sequel. what other story can they tell since it was all about racing? after watching the animation, we were first annoyed but later happy to see Mater outgrew his character n turned into a hero. but like most movies that came out with a sequel, Cars 2 (2011) was rated badly. however, i found it completely underrated! the story line tend to be more complicated than its previous sequel, i admit it wasn't exactly suitable for children either, but it managed to keep us absorbed into the story! especially with those absolutely colorful scenery.
