Yay… another Disney movie to watch and review (no, that wasn’t meant to be read in a sarcastic tone, I’m actually always excited for Disney movies). This time, a sequel. I loved the original Incredibles, but this one is actually – in my opinion – better. Or perhaps I need to watch the original again as I’m sure it’s been many, many years since I’ve seen that. This sequel focuses on the family aspect of the superhero team. It’s during a time where superheroism is being outlawed, yet the heroes are pushing back their thoughts and opinions trying to change the worlds mind. There were a lot of scenes in this film that made me chuckle and a lot of scenes that made me want to bump my fist because it was an awesome display of action.
As far as superhero movies go, I think this one is pretty good for an animated one. They are able to really bring to the screen action packed scenes full of tension. While watching it I felt much like I do while watching Marvel movies, on edge yet excited to see if it will end the way we want it to. Not only that though, the writers really brought forth the family aspects and comedic aspects in the film that we’ve grown to love from Disney movies. I loved the scene with Jack Jack and the raccoon. It was very entertaining to watch as the overworked, first time at home with the kids Mr. Incredible was completely oblivious until the next morning that the baby had grown super powers (and not only one either!). When the rest of the kids found out it, the following scenes were also entertaining and the writers used that to their advantage up until the scenes on the yacht.
Brad Bird, Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson, and Samuel L. Jackson are all among the main voices for this film. Some new characters are thrown into the loop to really amp up the idea of “rise of the superheroes” mentality. As for the animation, it’s typical for these movies. Nothing seemed different when comparing this one to the other Disney/Pixar movies we’ve seen. I’m going to give this one a “Loved It” and am going to tell myself to rewatch the original because, well, why not? (9/10).
