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…
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).
I've seen it so many times. Never lost its magic.
More like The Incredibly Safe.
The writing, direction, characters, animation, score, everything about this is absolutely incredible.
The Incredible is Pixar's first real mature film - not only from a subject matter perspective, but also from a filmmaking standpoint. Writer/director Brad Bird brings not only a retro visual style to the film, but also a sense of cinematography, which hasn't necessarily been the case up to this point where the studio's output is concerned. But more than that, the movie is about people, and I don't mean that to disparage the idea of making a movie about toys or fish. What I mean is that the Parr family possesses real problem - including marital ones - that lend a real sense of stakes. The Incredibles quickly became Pixar's best movie at the time of its release.
When I saw this film as a kid, I liked it. I see it when I'm older, and I love it. The movie is great. Everything about this movie is great, the characters, the setting, and even the villain is fantastic. The nitpicks that I have are minor, like the actual acquiring of the powers would be cool, but it's amazing anyway. In order not to say too much, I won't spoil and just tell you to see this movie, it's great.
Easily one of Pixar's best. Not necessarily the funniest, but probably the most entertaining and the most mature. A great mishmash of 007 and superheroes, with equal doses of laugh-out-loud humour and smart, poignant wit. The characters all feel real and the great voice performances only add to that, but it's the superb script that manages to make these superheroes human. Terrific action scenes and a fantastic musical score also contribute to the overall excellent quality. It is perhaps a bit light on comedy, but it's still lots of fun and definitely one of the better animated films of all time.
The Incredibles CANNOT be matched. Its level of pure perfection is simply unparalleled. I've seen it over a 100 times now and it NEVER gets old.
It's the best superhero/Pixar/action/adventure film ever made.
Possibly my favorite Pixar film. One of the few that may include adults in its demographic: it's dark and there's plenty of emphasis on family and the mundane in this movie. Luckily it avoids the mistake Batman and Star Wars made, that is, going in the deep end of appealing to the adults by making the film as boring as possible (do I give a shit about international trade disputes? not really). This movie is funny and has the potential to make you cry, and also think.
Combined the average ratings (Critic's & Users) from IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and Letterboxd, and then weighted and tweaked the results…
Chances are the first movie you ever saw was animation. Exuberant, colorful and full of wonder, animation is the stuff…
