Pixar Animation Studios are back with this the third instalment of the popular Cars animated Movies. It was looking a bit like Cars was beginning to run its course when Cars 2 came out in 2011 and It’s good to see they have gone back to basics in this one as we see Lighting McQueen who is still being voiced by Owen Wilson back in his underdog run. This was I feel why the first movie worked so well. It may or may not be the end of the road for this franchise after this movie but one thing is for sure, this is a vast improvement on the second offering.

Cars 3 sees Lighting McQueen who is now getting a bit older and seems to be falling behind the new more powerful up and coming cars. Lighting needs to revaluate his life and motivations in order to reclaim his spot at the top of the pecking order by using his smarts to outwit his rivals as he no longer can match them for speed.

Cars 3 should go down feel with the younger ones at the cinemas. Pixar seems to have come up with a type of Children’s Rocky Movie which I’m sure is one of the reasons for this movies appeal. It’s a tossup between this one and the first Cars movie as to which is the best in the series, personally I think Cars 3 might just shade it.

Rating 3.5/5
