No gut, no glory
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.
Best Pixar movie. Best super hero movie. Funniest super hero movie. And if you asked my son right this second? Maybe best movie ever (that doesn't have Gene Kelly or Judy Garland in it).
Simply put, Brad Bird's sophomore picture was just incred.. No, no, I won't. In the day when Pixar had more focus on creating new ideas rather than franchises, they took a chance at hiring an outside talent for their next picture after "Finding Nemo" had wrapped. The man they chose was "The Iron Giant" director, Brad Bird. When watching the opening few minutes of The Incredibles, you can see a bit of the same concepts Bird used in his previous film. An old-timey style influences a news feed monologue given to us as a narration device as we learn that, after a very mature series of events, super heroes(known here simply as "Supers")are to be outlawed and must surrender their…
As Pixar films go, Brad Bird's The Incredibles stands as one of the greats in their cannon, which is saying something considering the considerably strong cannon they possess (regardless of recent weakness in their fire power).
Not only does it work as an animated feature, it also works as a straight up Superhero movie, a James Bond like adventure and just a fun family comedy as well. There is also an element of Watchmen in there regarding the initial downfall of superheroes and the eventual spurned kid turned Super Villain Syndrome who bumps off Superheroes himself.
The James Bond feel is there through out, theirs exotic locations, super villains with secret island headquarters, a master plan, Syndrome's assistant could be…
This is, without a doubt, my favourite Pixar film.
This is character, humour, action, drama, and heart all brought together in a bundle of perfection. There's not much I can say but....
"MICHELLE! WHERE IS MY SUPER SUIT!?"
I keep going back and forth between all their great movies, but I've often said "The Incredibles" is my favorite Pixar film. It's got the best dialogue, definitely.
It's a Pixar film so it's a superhero film with heart.
One of Pixar's best, and possibly one of the best superhero movies of all time. Lots of fun.
It took until 2004, almost 10 years since Toy Story, for Pixar to make a feature with all humans. And boy, did they do it with a bang. With such a brillaint story by director/writer Brad Bird, it's one that can appeal to kids for the superheroes and adults to the more adult oriented content.
honestly though? i think monsters inc might be my favorite now. not sure when that happened
Brilliant film absolutely love it
My favorite PIXAR CGI film of all time!
Chances are the first movie you ever saw was animation. Exuberant, colorful and full of wonder, animation is the stuff…
