The director's job at the hands of John Lasseter, is dazzling and achieves what could be very difficult: as he did with the fish, now he convinces us that all these cars have life, feelings and intelligence, So Cars is much more than a commercial of ninety minutes of Bardahl; even if it is not for all tastes or for all ages nor is it a masterpiece like some of its predecessors, but do not deviate, which is already quite in your favor.
