Many of the reviews for the new movie, Cars 2, identify and criticize the illustrated violence presented to small children via the cinema. While there is more violence than in the original movie, the plot and characterization are completely different in Cars 2. I was actually surprised to see Lightning McQueen as somewhat of an ancillary character. Disney Pixar geared the story line towards an older child rather than toddlers and preschoolers. We went on opening night and both of the boys loved it. Yes, there were guns and explosions and intense competition. Yet, while talking to our children after we saw the movie, they mentioned that they enjoyed Mater being a spy and getting the bad guys. Overall, Cars 2 was a big hit with the Kocanuts.
