Incredibles 2 (2018) Film Review

Star Rating: ⭐⭐

Disney Pixar’s ‘Incredibles’ first appeared on our screens in 2004 with Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) missing his superhero days and seeks one more adventure, causing danger and thrills for the family. Now, 10 years later everyone’s favourite family of superheroes is back; in the much awaited anticipated aminated sequel, written and directed by Brad Bird.

Audiences are reunited with Parr family exactly where we left them, battling with the ‘Underminer’, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. Following their misadventure and run in with the authorities of Metroville’s police, the Parr family including Lucius (Samuel L. Jackson) are approached by a businessman named Winston Deavor (Bob Odenkirk) and sister, Evelyn Deavor (Catherine Keener) who enlists their help in making superheroes legal again.

Elastigirl aka Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called into the spotlight to be the face of the movement, leaving a jealous Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and of course, Jack Jack (voice of Eli Fucile) to deal with the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life, made all the more challenging with baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers.

On her mission, Elastigirl encounters a treat of a menacing new supervillain, Screenslaver, who is wreaking havoc with his hypnotising and mind control abilities. With their way of life threatened with a brilliant and dangerous plot, the Incredibles family and Frozone must find a way to work together to neutralise the threat and save the day once again.

I am glad the Incredibles has returned and I have enjoyed the film, however, it has been ten years since the original, I thought there would be more of a development in the plot, but no. Instead, the most updated version of animation software shows time has really changed.
