AFTER crashing into Radiator Springs, cocky race car Lightning McQueen is sentenced to community service and must learn to respect the locals before he can leave the town and return to the racetrack.

While the experts at Pixar have a fantastic track record (Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc, etc) their latest effort is possibly the weakest of the bunch.

The problem is that the animators have set such a high standard that viewers' expectations are also high.

Unfortunately, while Cars is still fun, it is rather pedestrian. 3/5
