A better review

This movie is not as consumer oriented as other reviews may lead one to believe. Mattel marketed few products related to this movie, and as a Father of a son a love of hot wheels is almost inevitable. These movies have spurred my son's imagination. And while it may influence kids to want to play hot wheels that attention can be easily directed at the toys they already have. The movie features team work and cooperation as desirable, and determination as advantageous. There is quite a bit of cartoon violence that is exaggerated in a way that defies realism and is done for humor and effect.
