This is agent Leeland Turbo. I have a flash transmission for agent Finn McMissile. Finn, my cover's been compromised. Everything's gone pear-shaped. You won't believe what I've found out here. This is bigger than anything we've ever seen. And no one even knows it exists. Finn, I need backup. But don't call the cavalry, it could blow the operation. And be careful! It's not safe out here!

The theatrical release has the Pixar logo as a "25th Anniversary" variant. When the lamp looks at us, the text fades out. Then, the rest of the logo fades out. When it does that, the text "CELEBRATING" fades in. The text "25 YEARS" fades in also. The text "25" is bigger than usual, and the text "YEARS" is below "25". The text "CELEBRATING" fades out. The text "25 YEARS" fades out. The text "CELEBRATING 25 YEARS" is similar to the text "CELEBRATING 75 YEARS" in the 75th Anniversary of the 20th Century Fox logo. Sadly, only theatrical releases used this logo, while DVDs and TV airings used the standard logo instead. See more »
It is true that this film is not like others Pixar films.But it is not acctualy so bad.Many review-writers is telling that this film is huge disappointment,and I think it is not true.I think that expectations was too big.
So,this is story about cars.About one friendship.They are completely different,but they are best friends.There is lot of nice,simple humor in the story.The scenario is "smooth" and it is easy watchable.There are much of action,surprises,cool techniques,like in James Bond. Yes,we could not expect that,but it is really OK .The characters are in many different places and they are meeting a different people.Characters are 3D,they have feelings and we feel empathy about them.
But,there is a "dark side" of film,which is not like Pixar.Enemies,propaganda and that stuff.These problems confuses and my 10 year old brother.It is not ugly or violent,it is just confusing to kids.
About animation,I will not discuss.It is still Pixar;great animations and visuals and everything about it.
This is family film and it is really relaxing and enjoyable.Maybe sometimes is confusing,but it is not acctualy so bad.Because of action and messages that film gives: 7/10
