I loved the original Cars movie, and this, while still good, is nothing like the first. It's like James Bond, with the characters as cars. I didn't like the references to killing - it's a little kids film after all, but it was still funny and entertaining. For me, the best part was the scenery (how dull, you're thinking?) - seriously! When they're racing round London I was stunned at the attention to detail. The animators are geniuses. Worth a look, but I felt it lacked the charm of the first film.
