Lightning McQueen is at it again with the return of Cars 3.
I found this movie entertaining and a thrill to watch. It had me engaged the whole time. With two main characters sharing the screen time at some stages it was a little slow for a kids movie with some of the messages getting lost.
This 2 hour movie was able to hold my attention the whole time, but as for the kids they got restless within the last 30 mins of the movie.
Overall this movie has some great messages for kids and adults to learn from:
- The introduction of a female car, Cruz Ramirez, fighting for her dream to race in a male dominated world, proving that woman can achieve anything.
- In the beginning of the movie, Lightning McQueen gets in a huge smash at the end of the season. During this time he withdraws from the world and hides from the shame. But with the power of encouraging friends and the will to never give up Lightning McQueen does everything it takes to get back in the race. With the introduction of new super cars McQueen needs to go back to his roots to find the true meaning of racing to him.
- Along the way McQueen calls upon past knowledge from previous races. Proving that the past can teach us how to better handle the present and that our elders should share their wealth of knowledge with the younger generation.
As far as it being an additional installation to the Cars franchise, this movie has raised the stakes and left it wide open for many more adventures to come.
