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.
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!
a.k.a. "The one they actually should make a sequel to."
There are no other words to describe this film but simply...incredible (cheesy, I know). I grew up with this film, rewatching it and just falling in love with the characters, the plot, the everything. Rewatching it now, I understand the political side of it (which makes me think...how many years has it been since I've rewatched this film??...too long) - but after god how many years, it still continues to be an action-packed, comedic and an absolute blast for an animation. Definitely one of my favourite animations and to be quite honest...I've waited for a sequel since 2004 (i spent many years making up a sequel in my head because the ending was cliff-hangerish). Give me one please Pixar/Disney.
Another great Pixar film, as is the majority of their catalogue. Particular highlights of this film is the nod to superheroes, the animation etc. but what makes Pixar great is that they deal with problems for superheroes, problems to fish, problems to monsters rather than plying the make up of humanity only to them. Great animation again, especially the water, and everything actually. Another classic that is worth to rewatch and rewatch and rewatch.
It is prefect, it just gets better each time.
holds up pretty well on repeat viewing.
Still the best Pixar film, in my opinion. Smart and funny with some amazing action sequences. Maybe the greatest film ever made about superheros. Maybe.
What a fun little film to watch with your 3 year old son! We had a blast! Bring on the sequel Pixar!!!
Violet was kinda hot
While it's probably the most 'meh' film I've ever seen from Brad Bird, it's okay entertainment and it's got some pretty funny moments.
