CarGO is a 2017 movie directed by Sean McNamara and starring Melissa Joan Hart, Haley Joel Osment, and Jason Mewes. The movie is a mix of live-action and animation, as it tells the story of a group of cars that live in a world where cars are the main characters and humans are absent. It is a family-friendly movie that will be enjoyed by children and adults alike. The main character of the movie is a yellow taxi called Rick (voiced by Tyler Patrick Jones) who is on a mission to save his fellow cars from a sinister group called the Voltz. The Voltz are a group of electric cars who want to rid the world of gasoline-powered cars like Rick and his friends. The Voltz are led by a villainous car called Volt (voiced by James Cullen Bressack) who wants to destroy all gasoline-powered cars because he believes they are a threat to the environment. Rick teams up with other cars to form a secret network called the Urban Protection League (UPL). The UPL's mission is to protect gasoline-powered cars from the Voltz. The UPL consists of a diverse group of cars, including a race car, a police car, a monster truck, and a tow truck. Each member of the UPL brings their own strengths and skills to the group, and together, they make a formidable team. Melissa Joan Hart plays the voice of a pink convertible named Frankie. Frankie is a member of the UPL and a love interest of Rick. She is a smart and sassy car who is not afraid to stand up to the Voltz. Haley Joel Osment plays the voice of Cletus, a redneck tow truck who is a member of the UPL. Cletus may be a bit rough around the edges, but he is equally as dedicated to the cause as the rest of the group. Jason Mewes plays the voice of Bobby, a human character who plays a pivotal role in the UPL's mission. Bobby is a mechanic who is passionate about fixing and restoring old cars. He helps the UPL with their mission by providing them with special tools and equipment. The movie is full of action and adventure as the UPL battles the Voltz. The battle scenes are creatively done, with the cars using their various skills and abilities to outsmart the Voltz. The animation is imaginative and colorful, with each car having its own unique personality and design. The movie also has a message about the importance of standing up for what you believe in and protecting the environment. While the Voltz may have a noble cause, their methods are extreme and misguided. The UPL believes that cars of all types can coexist and live in harmony, and they work to achieve that goal throughout the movie. Overall, CarGO is a fun and entertaining movie that will appeal to both kids and adults. The mix of animation and live-action is well done, and the story is engaging and action-packed. The talented voice cast brings the characters to life, and the message about the importance of protecting the environment adds depth to the story. It is a movie that the whole family can enjoy together.
