|Owen Wilson returns as the voice of Lightning McQueen.|
After the second entry in the series veered off track a bit by shifting too much focus onto Mater (Larry The Cable Guy), who is better in smaller doses, and became a an action spy movie, Cars 3 goes back to the manufacturer specs in being a racing movie centered around Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and showcasing a bit more of Radiator Springs, though it does follow McQueen across the country.

Owen Wilson seems to be enjoying returning to the character, and he and Cristela Alonzo show a strong chemisty (whether their voices were recorded seperately or not.). Cooper is wonderfull in the role of Doc Hudon's old trainer, and Fillion is a welcome addition, even if the part doesn't truly allow him to flex his comic muscles. The one aspect of the voice cast that is really a shame is the return of Chick Hicks minus the voice of Michael Keaton, who has a much busier schedule these days. Director Brian Fee does a fair job stepping in as the voice, but it's lacking something.
Randy Newman's musical score is worth the ticket price in and of itself, and of course the animation is spot on. All in all, this is a very satisfying end to the series (assuming it is the end), and one of the more enjoyable films of the summer, even if it isn't up there with Pixar's very best. It's a very good piece of family filmmaking thst is well worth your time.
