This is what happens when your car breaks down on a Sunday morning and you have nothing else to do…
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).
No puede estar tan bien hecha
can't wait for Incredibles II.
mmmmmmmmm. This is unironically one of my favorite movies of all time. Every character is beautifully thought out as in the popular Rob Shinzon movie "Norm of the North". Edna Mode is easily the best animated character in the history of ever. Syndrome definitely has some sort of syndrome. I hate him, but his death was pretty intense. Kinda gave me a half chubb, like when I watched Magic Mike 6 times. Frozone would have been better if he was white, but he would have lost the sass factor. mmmmmmmmm
Starting my “Let’s Prepare for Finding Dory” marathon I watched The Incredibles for the first time in probably 10 years. I watched it for the first time on a car ride and haven't seen it since then. Many regard it as one of Pixar’s best – if not the best – movies so my expectations were pretty high. It’s not bad but it does not fulfill the expectations of being one of Pixar’s best. But let’s see it as it is: Not being one of Pixar’s best is like not being a billionaire. It’s fucking hard to achieve and being worse says not that much about the quality.
The Incredibles’ exposition is like most of Pixar’s expositions perfect. There is…
The essential and best superhero movie and one of the best movies ever made in my opinion.
The world that it sets up in which the government had a division of superheroes is incredibly interesting to me and I'm glad it isn't overexplained, it just is there which makes it feel more real. Plus I love the late 60s mixed with modern tech setting.
Every character is important and explained well. Some people actually die on screen in this movie which is rare for Pixar but shows that each side is fighting for something and there are stakes.
I love this movie and I will never stop rewatching it. Just listening to the score gives me chills.
Edna Mode is one of the most iconic comedic animated characters and I love her so much. She makes my entire life. I love the family message of the movie, especially the way that Helen and Robert’s marriage goes through strain but they still stay together.
A masterpiece. A near perfect film. Brad Bird's The Incredibles is simply one of the best superhero movies of all time. And yes, it is a superhero movie.
Brad Bird has a way with movies. He has delivered great movies throughout his career, with great films such as The Iron Giant (1999) and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (2011) on his resume. And The Incredibles (2004) is, without a single doubt, his best movie to date.
First off, it's not your average Pixar movie. Pixar has always been absolutely great with making movies that appeal to all ages (something that Dreamworks animation seriously lacks). However, this one almost seems more geared towards adults. Don't misunderstand, kids love this one for the…
Havn't seen this one since I was a kid and thought it was fine but pretty forgettable. Over the years more and more people began praising this film for how great it is and I was pretty surprised by all of that. Ever since then I wanted to give this a rewatch to refresh my memory and maybe my rating of it.
Now I gotta say I appreciate this film a bit more than I did back then. For a Pixar family flick this one tackles some pretty mature themes. Death is not held secret and there is even a (tiny) bit of blood. Besides the many jokes, predictable clichées and flat characters the story feels relatively serious. Some clever screenwriting too.
Still my rating doesn't change. The Incredibles is a fine movie and I'd be okay with a sequel, but I don't think it's that great.
An original concept of superheroes, action, humor and family altogether in one awesome film for Pixar. 9/10
