Though not on the podium with the best of Pixar's films, this third adventure with champion racing car Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) is still a winner

Though not on the podium with the best of Pixar's films, this third adventure with champion racing car Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) is still a winner.

This time, he is being overtaken by a new generation of hi-tech machines led by the swaggering Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer).

Can Latina trainer Cruz Ramirez (comedian Cristela Alonzo) - once an aspirant racer herself - get him in shape to compete with these sleek rivals? Or is it time for him to retire?

This sequel remains entertaining - and it's a distinct improvement on instalment number two.

Amid the comic antics and racetrack thrills and spills, you will find some surprisingly mature musings here on ageing and acceptance.
