Although the film is predictable, the injection of humour makes one excited to see how the plot carries through to the end. Mostly dependent on nostalgia, this film will be a great catch for fans of the Cars franchise as they watch Lightning Mcqueen speed on the tracks again.

In Disney/Pixar's Cars 3, Lightning Mcqueen (Owen Wilson) is now a middle-aged racer. The film opens with a typical race with Mcqueen chanting “I am speed” before entering the track. As usual, the races will evoke a strong sense of nostalgia for fans of the Cars franchise. At the heart of this film is the conflict between the old and younger generation. Mcqueen’s competitor in this film Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer), a new generation rookie racer who has been rising up the ranks. The design of his car is swanky and technologically advanced, compared to Mcqueen who is clearly an icon of the past.

As Mcqueen’s champion position is under threat, he gets bought over by a big company that has plans to help restore him to his former glory. At the new company, Mcqueen meets Cruz Raminez (Cristela Alonzo). A young female car, Cruz has dreams to race on the tracks. However, she ends up as a technician. An avid fan of Mcqueen, she aims to help him improve such that he will be able to beat Storm. Due to their age-gap, they face disagreements during the training process. Out of her reverence for him, Cruz decides to follow Mcqueen’s training plans instead – which include beach runs and dirt tracks. As they journey towards Mcqueen’s final race in LA, Cruz and Mcqueen get into conflicts and weird situations. Despite all these, there is an exchange of knowledge between the older Mcqueen and the younger, energetic Cruz.

The film also pays tribute to Hudson Hornet (Paul Newman), Mcqueen’s mentor. Even though he is not present in the film, Mcqueen makes a journey to Doc’s hometown to find out what made him such an extraordinary racer. As he befriends Doc’s friends, he learns a lot more about who Doc was. He slowly comes to terms with the fact that his prime time is over, and that there is a time where one has to let go of one’s former glory.

Although the film is predictable, the injection of humour makes one excited to see how the plot carries through to the end. Mostly dependent on nostalgia, this film will be a great catch for fans of the Cars franchise as they watch Lightning Mcqueen speed on the tracks again.
