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.
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,…
It just gets better every single time.
Aesthetically this film is off the charts amazing. I hadn't really paid attention to the look of the film, probably because it's so seamless and doesn't draw attention to itself, but it's beyond amazing. Striking just the right tone between serious 70s Bond style and silly super villain piss-take. The design is everything you want in a superhero film, super mod and heaps of fun. You can feel the love behind every design choice.
And of course it's been mentioned so much but it's really true. The heroes are really the family. It's obvious how many if the writers and animators must have been in this very same situation, minus the super strength and so on.
Better with each watch.
Damn, Pixar used to be so great...
The Incredibles is quite simply one of my favorite Pixar movies. It has a great premise that thankfully isn't underused by writer/director Brad Bird, action sequences that rival almost anything on display in live action fare, and its central theme of family isn't forced down our throats by Bird. Instead, he explores said theme through the progression of the story and the actions of the characters, rather than spending too much time pontificating on the idea -- and that approach is ideal for a movie like this. The characters themselves have wonderful personalities, and fortunately the "cuteness" of Dash, again, isn't something that's forced on us. Also, I really like Michael Giacchino's score.
I'm waiting avidly not only for the sequel, but also for the day when Pixar starts making movies this great again.
Wohl der beste Pixar, unglaublich action- und humorreich und nicht so infantil wie der Rest.

Best animated film of 2004.
Great flick, wish they'd done a sequel already.
It took me a long time to see this movie, and I would consider that odd since I am a comic book geek. I don't have an amazing track record when it comes to watching Pixar movies, but when I do I usually think they are really good. This movie is an incredibly fun movie to watch even for a grown man with no kids. It is basically a cartoon version of the fantastic four, but with a bit of an added childhood perspective. Of all the Pixar films I have seen, this is probably the best and the easiest for crossover appeal.

The rare Disney movie that extols personal excellence rather than the tired, empty message of bloated old Polonius: 'to thine own self be et cetera'
Clever and action-packed, this is one of Brad Bird's best films. Then again, all of his films are great.
