Because of one fateful event, even mistaken for a secret agent United States and began this adventure. Evaluation Cars is the second Pixar film, after Toy Story, to have a sequel. John Lasseter, the director of the film, said that he was convinced of the sequel's story while traveling around the world promoting the first film. He said: “ I kept looking out thinking, 'What would Mater do in this situation, you know?' I could imagine him driving around on the wrong side of the road in the UK, going around in big, giant traveling circles in Paris, on the autobahn in Germany, dealing with the motor scooters in Italy, trying to figure out road signs in Japan.” The film was presented in Disney Digital 3D and IMAX 3D, as well as traditional two-dimensional and IMAX formats. Unlike the previous films that tell the spirit and camaraderie, the sequel to the film The Cars are more directed to the adventure by describing some countries as an illustration of the racecourse. Evaluation Summation Cars 2 remains quite interesting spectacle. The quality of animation is clear beyond doubt as the voice actor or actress is also not new. Story line offer is also quite good, although not something that feels fresh. The film is also the main character Lightning McQueen is not very prominent, but he is a Mater of friends who become secret agents. Funny scene in this film also became an interesting thing. Thrilling adventure presented from the beginning to the end of the story but unfortunately the use of guns in this movie is not suitable watched by children and must be guide by parents. Cross Cultural Understanding Concerning the value for a cross-cultural understanding, we can say that the film isn’t same culture with us. Cars in the movie drink from alcohol related glasses in bar or club. Drinking alcoholic beverages is prohibited by religion and against the culture of the eastern people. Mater has eyes for Holley Shiftwell and calls her his girlfriend but she isn’t his girlfriend. We see the cultural manners of speaking are very different. A couple of cars kiss briefly in the movie. Kissing in public places that are different from us. Western people are not ashamed to do things like this but for people east, it is very embarrassing.
