2 weeks ago I sat watched THE PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGERS TIDES and one of the previews was this film CARS 2 and if you follow this site you know I’m not a fan of 3D Movies. I’m especially not a fan of 3D Animated movies don’t see the point however after watching the trailer for CARS 2 in 3D I was extremely impressed by the quality and I know there’s alot of debate going on especially in USA about the poor quality of the actual 3D movie with allegations some cinema chains are not using the proper equipment, though out of the movie and trailers CARS 2 was certainly the strongest 3D, Ive seen. I do also think CARS 2 has received alot of unfair bad press simply because its seen as Pixar’s ‘weakspot’ by some critics but for a movie that made nearly $500 million (£390m) that’s certainly not a failure and the kids must love it so thats why Pixar made movie 2!

But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world.
