The plucky automobile Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) goes international in this entertaining Disney-Pixar sequel to one of the most successful animated movies to date.
He enters a Grand Prix that also lands him in the midst of a spy mission, thanks to British operatives Finn McMissile and Holley Shiftwell (voices of Michael Caine and Emily Mortimer), though Lightning's desire to bring finish-line glory to himself and America remains intact. Larry the Cable Guy and Bonnie Hunt return to the vocal cast, with John Turturro, Joe Mantegna and Vanessa Redgrave among the newcomers. Actual racer Jeff Gordon also is heard. DVD extras: audio commentary by director John Lasseter; two short subjects. *** (G) (Also on Blu-ray)
