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.
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…
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!
Nunca la había visto completa y ahora que le di el chance pues me dejó sin palabras, excelente en todos los aspectos. No al nivel de las grandes Obras de Pixar, pero sí muy cerca. Quizá con otra vista aumente mi rating que seguro lo merece.
"Edna: I didn't know the baby's powers so I covered the basics.
Helen: Jack-Jack doesn't have any powers.
Edna: No? Well, he'll look fabulous anyway."
Me tardé años en convencer a Luba de ver esta.
No sé por qué nunca le dije que era del director de The Iron Giant. Sigue siendo una joyita. Aunque ya no la considero el apex de Pixar.
In contrast to my viewing of the Fincher commentary on The Social Network this viewing was a blast. This commentary isn't quite as good as Bird's commentary on The Iron Giant, but it is still quite informative and good fun. Bird is always enthusiastic and gracious and a joy to listen to.
Highlights include: A rant about animation not being a "genre" and the fact that this commentary was recorded before the film was released so Bird and producer John Walker discuss how they have no idea how the film will be received. If only they knew they'd made Pixar's finest work.
One of my favorite movies and one of the most inventive super hero movies ever made.
It's baffling that such a fun, imaginative and beautifully animated film never got a sequel or three. Not that I'm complaining, for I'm sure any spin-offs would surely have been poor or at least never measured up to the original.
The Incredibles is among my favourite animated movies for several reasons: The subject matter... old-school superheroes.... hey, make that a family of superheroes! Great animation... the character design, the background art, all so perfectly realized. The sheer exhilaration embedded in the story... fun and never boring or stupid. A clever sense of humour.... great funny dialogue that doesn't rely on endless pop culture references and catch-phrases. Nice balance of action and nuance.... the crazy Omnidroid battles vs the spilled cup…
Very original and well put together, everyone knows the story already so I won't bother
