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!

In international versions of Cars 2, Jeff Gorvette is replaced in World Grand Prix welcome party in Tokyo by a completely different character, voiced by a regionally better known racer than Jeff Gordon. However, they only replace him in the scene where Lightning meets him at the party in Tokyo as well as when that scene appears in Mater's nightmare. They don't replace him in the races or when the racers are shocked at Mater drinking from the water fountain after eating a lot of wasabi. Most of these characters use the same body shape as Max Schnell. These include:
Frosty voiced by Mark Winterbottom Australian release
Fernando Alonso voiced by Fernando Alonso Spanish release
Vitaly Petrov voiced by Vitaly Petrov Russian release
Jan Nilsson voiced by Jan Nilsson Swedish release
Long Ge Chinese (both Mandarin and Cantonese versions, however, not Taiwan) release
Memo Rojas, Jr. voiced by Memo Rojas, Jr. Mexican release
Sebastian Schnell voiced by Sebastian Vettel German release (Also appear in other releases, but voiced by other voice actor, called Max Schnell, and don't appear at this scene)
Carla Veloso voiced by Claudia Leitte Brazilian release (Also appear in other releases, but voiced by other voice actor and don't appear at this scene)
Raoul ÇaRoule some French releases (Also appear in other releases, but don't appear at this scene)
In Ukrainian release both Jeff Gorvett and Lewis Hamilton renamed after their voice actors:
Sheva (Jeff Gorvett) voiced by Andriy Shevchenko
Mochanych (Lewis Hamilton) voiced by Oleksiy Mochanov
However, they still looks like Jeff and Lewis. 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
