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.
After exploring the world of toys, bugs, monsters & ocean life in an extremely unusual yet intimately human manner, Pixar Animation Studios brings its sweeping cinematic vision to the world of superheroes, this time showing the highs n lows of life from their point of view. And just like their previous ventures, The Incredibles continues Pixar's dream run of all-round success & is one of the greatest films about superheroes.
The Incredibles tells the story of a family of superheroes, with each member having unique set of superpowers. Forced into retirement to a civilian life due to the number of lawsuits resulting from the damages caused by their crime-fighting activities, Mr. Incredible's wish to relive the glory days is granted when he's…
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…
I've lost count how many times I've watched this, think it's somewhere between 10 to 12. I can remember every line, every detail, every facial and music cue, it's bordering on disturbing.
Still enjoyable though. Visually fantastic and meticulously written with some flawless comedic timing. "We're dead. We're still alive but we're dead." gets me every fucking time.
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.
The Incredibles marks as the next pivotal step of the studio since the first Toy Story, as no longer is the studio pressured by themselves of needing to prove their worth; it is understood that what they bring to the table are the highest marks of beauty, showcasing a medium that would push the genre closer, or perhaps even more, to the naturalism and visual detail of a live action image. The Toy Story films, Monsters, Inc., and Finding Nemo were all an exercise of technicality, taking on unique perspectives that would transport its cast members to an entirely new experience, one that surpasses its bleaker live-action competitors due to its choice vivid colours and remarkable scale.
The Incredibles is…
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).
Not as good as Cars 2
Acting (Voice): 8/10
- Loved all the characters, especially Dash and Frozone
- Some great and memorable lines
- Cannot wait for the sequel
- I didn't notice the Pizza Planet truck in this one
- Loved 'E'
- If I could have one of their superpowers I'd easily have super speed
- It does drag a little in the middle which holds it back from being as great as Finding Nemo, Toy Story and Monsters Inc
The ultimate childhood classic. James was obsessed.
"Some people are special and other people are not special. Don't pretend you're one when you're the other."
first 10 min of the incredibles = plot of civil war
the best of the pixar movies imo
IT'LL BE 15 YEARS TOO LATE ONCE THE SEQUEL FINALLY COMES OUT UGH
The film follows a family of superheroes who are forced to hide their powers and live a quiet life in suburbia, until Mr. Incredible's unquenchable desire to help people draws the entire family into a battle with a merciless villain and his diabolical schemes.
Heck, let's give this 5 stars because I've always remembered this fondly and now that I've rewatched it I might even love it more.
incredible ha ha
