Brief Synopsis – In order to try and change the image of super heroes in the world, Elastigirl is chosen to be the sole crime fighter in the family while Mr. Incredible stays home to take care of the kids.
My Take on it – This is a film that I’ve been interested in seeing ever since it came out and finally has the opportunity.
I’m usually not the biggest fan of sequels but since this is Pixar, I was looking forward to seeing where they would take this story and its characters.
They found a way to keep the action and story quite fun while never really making things feel repetitious at all.
The aspect of this film that makes things even more enjoyable is the way that they chose to do a gender role switch here having Mr. Incredible play home maker and the main parent at home leads to some great situations along the way and adds so much to both the comedic and action packed aspects of the film.
The voice cast from the previous film almost all return which helps them embody these great and enjoyable characters.
The plot is done extremely well and they found a way to include some great messages into the storyline.
Bottom Line – Very fun sequel that manages to find a way to continue the story of this super family in a great way that doesn’t feel repetitious at all. The choice to switch the gender roles in this film works quite well and adds so much to both the action and comedic aspects of the story. The voice cast from the first film return and one again are able to embody this super family and their friends. Great plot that is filled with some really poignant messages that resonates quite well. Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – During the scene when Helen (Holly Hunter) is in her hotel room and on the phone with Bob (Craig T. Nelson), there is an abstract painting hanging on the wall behind Helen. It features five swatches of red on a light background. Each swatch forms a shape with a likeness of the five Parr family members. The four representing Bob, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack are positioned on the left side of the painting, and the final swatch, representing Helen, alone on the right. This subtly emphasizes her separation from her family. (From IMDB)
Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
