Disney/Pixar released another look at the new characters from this summer’s Cars 2 animated movie. This time out, we get a look at Torque, voiced by Bruce Campbell.

Rod “Torque” Redline (voice of Bruce Campbell)

Rod “Torque” Redline is considered by many as the greatest American spy in the world. Recruited after the Cold War for both his brains and brawn, Torque is a tough-as-nails Detroit muscle car with a mastery of disguises. In his latest deep-cover operation, he obtained vital information about the plot to sabotage the World Grand Prix. So Rod plans a rendezvous with his British counterparts to share his discoveries at the World Grand Prix welcome reception in Tokyo, Japan. But with the bad guys hot on his tailpipe, Rod is forced to ditch the intel early and with the first party guest he sees – a rusty American tow truck named Mater.

Siddeley (voice of Jason Isaacs)

Siddeley is a state-of-the-art British twin-engine spy jet. At 176 feet from nose to tail and an impressive 157-foot wingspan, the super sleek silver-bodied Siddeley streaks through international skies at record-breaking mach 1 speeds. Outfitted with all the latest in high-tech spy equipment, including cloaking technology, defensive weaponry and afterburners, Siddeley is Finn’s steadfast partner-in-fighting-crime around the globe.

  1. Spoiler Alert! Critical Hit ends with the heroes failing, the world being destroyed, and Tork’s soul being vaporized and imprinted into a purple Dodge Challenger.

  2. You know…I have been pretty much completely uninterested in this movie, but the fact that Bruce Campbell is voicing one of the characters manages to create a tiny sliver of interest. I have always felt like Cars was one of the very weakest of Pixar’s films, so I was pretty disappointed when they said they were doing a sequel to it rather than, say, the Incredibles, or perhaps even a new outing.

    • I felt the same way, and I’d still would rather see a sequel to the Incredibles, but they’re actually being very smart by making this sequel. I guarantee that they have made huge amounts of money multiplied over on Cars than they have on almost every other Pixar movie just in merchandising. Toy Story and Cars seem to be most profitable, but Cars has the edge in my opinion. Speaking from the point of view that I have a 3 year old and can literally see a Lightning McQueen car, a Mater car and a piece from a foam Cars puzzle from where I’m sitting, oh and one Bullseye figure from Toy Story. And while I did find Cars a little weak, I feel like it holds up fairly well on repeated viewings, of which I’ve had to watch it dozens and dozens of times.
