I have to admit that when I saw the trailer for this film, I had absolutely no confidence in it whatsoever. I simply didn’t think they could possibly come up with a compelling storyline based upon a world inhabited solely by living cars.
However, being the animation junkie I am, I still had to give it shot once it hit on DVD. I’m happy to report that I could not have been more wrong.
I loved this film! The animation was top-notch, though I never had any doubt as to that. Even better, though, was the fact that it actually had a very engaging and heartwarming story! Being the severely masculine tough guy that I am, I have no qualms revealing that the ending of the film actually brought the slightest amount of moisture to one of my eyes. Thankfully, I have far too much machismo for that moisture to have evolved into a full-fledged tear.
I don’t have any children of my own, but I have to imagine that I would feel totally confident showing this to my kids. I can’t think of a better movie for a youngster to learn from. It’s been too long since I saw an entertaining film that reminded me how wonderful it is when people put others first.
