Fellow “Incredibles” Fans, buckle up and prepare for an awesome ride! Whenever I love a movie, often the sequels leave much to be desired… In this case, I am ecstatic to declare that “Incredibles 2” is just as good, if not better, than the first movie!! My 13-year-old daughter, her 15-year-old friend, and I were ALL on the edge of our seats throughout the entire family action-filled story across the screen.
“Incredibles 2” begins EXACTLY where the original “Incredibles” ended. This technique is a brilliant and captivating way to grab us from the start. Remember Dash’s Track Meet and the Underminer attack in the parking lot? Now you get to find out what happens next!
In the first “Incredibles”, we met the Parr family who were trying to figure out how to function as ‘superheroes’ in 1950s society. The government has been concerned about superheros running amuck, and has restricted their actions in public. In “Incredibles 2”, their story continues.
Helen/Mom is recruited to step out of the shadows, grab her super-suit and lead a campaign to bring Supers back into the public.
Bob/Dad, meanwhile, takes on the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet/teen, Dash/son and baby Jack-Jack – whose super powers are about to be discovered.
Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
Get to the movie early, so you don’t miss the traditional Pixar Short that kicks off the show. “Incredibles 2” is accompanied by a heartfelt movie about a Chinese family: BAO
Parent Comment: The villain is creepy and uses hypnosis. There is one mini-jump scare shot that creeped us all out. Young kids might be scared.
