It is true Cars 2 is nothing like the original but it has the same heart and message as the first. Mater gets his best buddy McQueen into a international 3 part race but is mistaken for a American spy. Mater becomes aware of how people see him and thanks to McQueen who realizes he loves his buddy for who he is and shouldn't ask him to change, Mater saves the day and... Lightning. Cars 2 has heart, action, comedy, and just plain fun! Besides do everyone really want just another version of the original? The original stole the hearts of thousands, but the sequel will steal the fun, action, and love of millions.
