Family Activites: Cars 2 The Movie Review & Giveaway
Today, the event little boys and girls everywhere have been waiting for arrives. The opening of Cars 2!!
The Architect, Miss Bliss, Little Bear and I headed off to Hoyts Victoria Gardens on Sunday for a special preview screening of Cars 2, courtesy of Disney.
The Architect and I really enjoyed the movie! It’s light and clever – lots of jokes in there to appeal to the adults in the audience. It’s your classic action flick – fast cars, babes, machine guns, explosions, a cute lesson at the end and the 21st century edge…sustainable energry! At first the climate change angle surprised us as it seems such an adult theme, but it’s actually perfect for primary school aged children for whom the earth and environment is a key learning area.
It’s a very different film to the first one but it’s lots of fun! Though it’s definitely a movie-dream for boys it’s got wide appeal that doesn’t limit to a “boys only”.
For those wanting a more techy/blokey review this is what The Architect had to say…
“Excellent animation! It was the first movie I’ve seen in 3D that actually made artful use of the 3D technology – it was integral to the story and the overall art direction of the film, which made it enjoyable rather than a distraction. It looked to me that they’ve learnt a lot from game design rather than cinema direction.”
Miss Bliss loved the experience of being at the movies but to be honest, was too young to really “get” the plot…her current fixations on all things “Princess” probably didn’t help.
