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).
It's been years since I have seen this but recently it has come up a lot in people's top Pixar films lists, so I decided to revisit it. I may have expected too much out of it, which led me to be a little disappointed but in hindsight, it was really enjoyable.
First of all, Edna Mode... need I say more?? Wish we got more of her. Second, the very first scene of the interview reel of our protagonists had me believe that we would see them continue to express the same sentiments and attitudes they had during that scene. Mr Incredible with his confident attitude and putting himself on a pedestal, but saying he wanted to settle down; ElastiGirl…
Essentially Watchmen meets the Fantastic Four, with a bit of James Bond thrown in there for good measure.
The Incredibles was pretty ahead of its time when you think about it. This was before the Marvel Cinematic Universe, before Nolan's Batman movies. It was before the superhero genre properly kicked in and became the behemoth it is today.
So it's kind of amazing that it manages to play with and deconstruct the genre so well and so intelligently. This film is smarter than 99% of the "real" superhero movies, even when it's target audience is mainly children. That's why The Incredibles is timeless, and The Avengers already seems kinda dated.
Great movie, especially in the beginning. I always cry so much during Pixar movies and this one is no different. However, I really do hate third acts in superhero films. I always feel like I am watching a lame boss battle from a video game. IRON MAN is essentially Donkey Kong at the end and this movie has a rather typical giant WAR OF THE WORLDS-type tripod robot. It is interesting, because BIG HERO 6 does a very similar thing, but I don't find it nearly as offensive. The James Bond score and aesthetics are also fun.
You know, I'm not even sure I'm surprised that this movie isn't as great as I remembered as a kid. I mean when TDK trilogy and The Avengers and countless other superhero movies came out it's not as if I hesitated to rank them so high on the best superhero movies without the Incredibles crossing my mind for even a second. I mean that tells me something. The Incredibles hosts gorgeous animation and starts off incredibly interesting and different. It's mature and seems to be taking me on a journey I've never been on before. Unfortunately in my opinion it loses that uniqueness and becomes just another loud, lazy action picture. And I hate to say that because I loved…
NOTHING that comes out of pixar will EVER top this film
I haven't seen this movie in over 10 years and finally saw it again and man...it's incredible (pun intended). It's a animatics marvel! The film is over 12 years old and holds up so damn good! It's funny how watching the movie makes you see a lot of Brad Birds style of film making in live action movies! The movie is amazing and I hope the second one is as good! Probably my new favorite Pixar movie!
Definitely top 3 Pixar films as far as I'm concerned.
Still the best superhero movie ever made!
