Bob Parr has given up his superhero days to log in time as an insurance adjuster and raise his three children with his formerly heroic wife in suburbia. But when he receives a mysterious assignment, it's time to get back into costume.
Decided to up the rating to a full five stars for the 'bloke factor'.
First time I saw this was in the theaters when it came out. Loved it then. Now, a rewatch on the telly almost ten years later and I loved it even more.
Brad Bird understands the animation genre so well. The Incredibles is an almost perfect example of how impeccable comedic timing and a character driven adventure can imbue that mystical and essential element a film like this needs. Fun. And the unashamed fun this has with the genre is irresistibly infectious, making it one of the best adventure films ever in my eyes.
Watching this film feels like a guy drawing out and recounting the…
Technically, aesthetically, and narratively outstanding, "The Incredibles" is an excellent, animated achievement. The film is a rollicking super hero adventure that features enduring characters and voice talent, rich and layered dialogue, and three dimensional cinematography that rivals many masterfully shot and lit, live-action films. "The Incredibles" is one of Disney's best, one of PIXAR's best, and one of the superhero genre's best.
I wish I had the chance to see this as a kid.
After the disappointment that was Monsters University it seemed that I had lost almost all hope for Pixar to ever return to their former self. It's been many years since I've truly loved one of their films, and it's a real shame to see such a big part of my youth slowly decline. However, I still had Brad Bird's sophomore effort in the back of my mind. Bird is a very interesting director, and quite possibly the best Pixar ever picked up. His incredible talent as an animator is matched with an even stronger sense for characters and story. To put it bluntly, as far as storytelling goes,…
The more I see this, it just gets better and better. One of the best animated films ever made and one of my favorite films. Outstanding animation. Amazing characters. Great action. Funny, memorable moments. Incredible film. After this rewatch, I actually wouldn't mind a sequel. Hell, I demand a sequel! Somebody needs to make it happen!
Hay cierta perfección en The Incredibles (en su guión, en la interpretación de los actores que prestaron sus voces, en su diseño, en su montaje) que hace difícil de ver el trabajo humano detrás de cámaras. O sea, es difícil de ver que esta película fue creada de cero, que no simplemente existe. Es difícil imaginar a un grupo de personas poniendo tanta atención al detalle. Crear un universo plausible, y presentándolo de manera tan ordenada y clara en un prólogo que no dura más de 10 minutos. Es difícil imaginar animadores armar una película tan físicamente correcta: todo se siente que pesa, que existe, que ocupa un lugar, lo que hace que las escenas de acción sean tan emocionantes.…
a.k.a. "The one they actually should make a sequel to."
What a blunt force of a film. It's a speeding train in construction, one of the few films in which I never think of myself as watching it because it's so absorbing. Brad Bird's eye for framing, his feel for rhythm, his strength at editing may be unmatched among modern directors. Certainly when it comes to intensity, to pace, to feverishness, few films can keep pace with this film's frenetic dynamism.
Which is why it's all the more disappointing that the themes here are so awkward and, to be perfectly honest, shitty. Some people are born better than others? And they deserve to be treated better because of it? The movie is weirdly pro midlife crisis too. There's a lot that this movie misses the mark on, which is strange because I think Bird gets something really special in both Ratatouille and The Iron Giant.
But as an action set piece and believable presentation of a family dynamic, hoo boy.
It's tempting to call it the single greatest superhero film ever made, and it's going to take more than Joss Whedon's script-o-matic to change that. Also tempting to say the best film about family ever made, and pretty high up on the action scale too. And as for within animation?
Forget it, this thing stands on its' own as a genuinely stunning film and deserves better than to be ghettoised with backhanded compliments.
Cause Shayer rated it 5/5.
The best Pixar film, the greatest superhero film and perhaps THE classic action comedy. The Incredibles manages to offer viewers something new and exciting every time around.
This is, without question, my favorite Pixar film. It gets bonus points because I'm a huge fan of super hero films, but it's not just the theme that I love here. The story is extraordinarily well-written. It delves into the idea of super heroes trying to deal with ordinary suburban life. Brad Bird managed to work in tons of comedy, loads of action, and a heart-warming family story all in one. The way it weaves all those threads together is nearly perfect.
The voice cast is somewhat secondary to the story. While I think most of the actors were appropriate for their roles, there is only one who truly wows the audience. Oh wait, it's the same guy who wrote…
Excellent animated flick.
Holly Hunter's animated mom hips are the best.
Still as good as when I was a kid.
But it is pretty more violent I thought it was. For a children.
Funny, dramatic, intense, entertaining. This is the formula to make an excellent movie that transcends just a film for kids, but it's a film for everyone. Dash is definitely my personal favorite. He actually has fun with his powers and of course Frozone voiced by Samuel L Jackson is awesome.
