Worth the 14-year wait, Incredibles 2 is a rousing animated sequel that packs a punch.
Bright, vivid and full of fleshed out characters, Incredibles 2 is a worthy sequel to the 2004 animated hit. Director Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) returns to the director’s chair and doesn’t miss a beat. Though it’s been 14-years, our heroes haven’t changed or aged. The film takes place right after the ending events of the first feature. Actor’s Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter both return and voice their respected roles as Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl. Actor Sarah Vowell also respires her role and voices Violet Parr. Actor Huck Milner replaces Spencer Fox for the voice of Dash Parr. This time around Helen AKA Elastigirl is in the spotlight, leaving Bob AKA Mr. Incredible at home with Violet and Dash to navigate the day-to-day heroics of "normal" life.
The family is also still unaware of baby Jack-Jack's emerging superpowers. This leads us to some hilarious circumstances and interactions between Jack-Jack and Bob. The plot thickens, when a new villain hatches out a brilliant and dangerous plot. But I won’t spoil, you’ll have watch this superhero treat for yourself. Incredibles 2 hasn’t lost any momentum in the 14-year hiatus, the film is now the highest grossing animated feature ever in the United States. Pixar’s latest flick has now grossed $600 million, domestically. This brings the grand worldwide total to $1.16 billion. Incredibles 2 brings out your inner child. A rousing experience full of big action, witty humor and strong developed characters. It will go down in the books as one of the best animated films to hit the big screen in recent memory. This is a film the whole family will enjoy, I guarantee it.
Incredibles 2 is rated PG (Parental Guidance). For action sequences and some brief mild language.
