Bob and his wife Helen used to be among the world's greatest crime fighters, saving lives and battling evil on a daily basis. Fifteen years later, they have been forced to adopt civilian identities and retreat to the suburbs where they live "normal" lives with their three kids, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack. Itching to get back into action, Bob gets his chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top secret assignment. He soon discovers that it will take a super family effort to rescue the world from total destruction.

You know, I don't really think the stress of impending divorce, the panic of near death experience and the general resentful hatred from Mr. incredible's nemesis that's depicted in this movie was anything to coo about. I would put his movie in the adult section and leave it there. There's so much impropriety and not enough of a good lesson in this movie to warrant me letting my kids watch it. We've got to stop pretending that these so called "underlying" adult humor lines go over our kid's heads. I hate all the insinuations about lying, and cheating, and frankly, adult sexuality that should be skidding around on the floor of Disney Pixar's Editing room. Don't get me wrong, I like the animation, I like the story line, I even like the suspense. But I like it as an adult likes a movie for adults. Teens maybe.
This was sooooooooo awesome . I loved this the best movie ever i totally recommend this . I now have dreams of me and my family being superheroes . I hope they make a Incredibles 2 . I give this movie a big thumbs up.
Usually I love Pixar movies, so I wasn't surprised when I liked this one too. The Incredibles is INCREDIBLE. I've had my share of superhero movies, but I've never seen or read a story about a superhero family seemingly being normal. Or trying to be, anyway. They go through the same problems that a normal family goes through, which is often ignored in superhero movies. It has enough action to keep you going, and enough story and sentimentally to keep you feeling for this family. My family watches this movie all the time and it never gets old! Sometimes we even recite our favorite quotes. I would recommend to anyone and everyone. 5/5 stars!
There were some cute elements to this, but it ran a little long for me. I did like the spin of the superheros trying to be everyday people. I think it would really appeal to children and their parents, espcially the soccer mom set.
This is a really good movie about a family of superheroes that try to act normal when superheroes are illegal. But it turns out that it is really hard to pretend to be normal when you are not, this family gets closer together when a supervillian attacks the city to try to be a famous superhero by defeating his own robot. This is a great family movie for all ages. You should watch it if you haven't yet.
Superheroes. Trying to save the world. Lots of action, lots of laughs. Mr. Incredible, after forced retirement, takes on mysterious work behind his wife's (Elastigirl's) back. Then all heck breaks loose when she finds out (picking a speck off his jacket "is this...rubble?") and tries to track him down. This movie is full of chases, fights, villains. It is both a wonderful straight superhero movie and a near satire of the genre.
What makes this movie so amazing is that it shows these heroes in every day life. Married. With kids. Working at an insurance company. The kids are super, too, but have crushes, get called down to the principal's office, etc. Much of the humor comes from superheroes, often in extraordinary circumstances trying to save the world, dealing with everyday stuff. The parents arguing over which highway exit to take so they can stop the robot from destroying a city. The kids asking "are we there yet" while they're in a rocket heading to that city. Hilarious!
Best character in the movie (in any animated movie, maybe) is Edna Mode - the fashion designer that used to design super hero outfits. She's so incredibly egotistical, focused on her work, "take no nonsense" and "tell it straight". Love her!
See this movie if you are ready to laugh at your heroes AND cheer them on to defeat the bad guy.
