The Incredibles is one of the most popular animated properties in existence. And after a 14 years hiatus, there’s no slurring people’s appetite, evident from the numbers its sequel pulled in at the box office.
The story follows the Parr family as they try to restore public’s trust in superheroes while balancing their family life, only to combat a new foe who seeks to turn the populace against all superheroes.
Whether it’s Papa Incredible’s quirky acts as he struggles with balancing life as a househusband while his wife is the new face of superheroism, or Mama Incredible unwittingly chasing after air in the guise of tracking down the Screenslaver, or their children -Violet, Dash and Jack Jack- battling issues of their age and superpowers, there’s no shortage of fun moments in this 118 minutes flick.
The breakout star of the first movie was the extremely lovable last born of the Parrs, Jack Jack. All the sweet emotion I felt watching him then is magnified in this one. Jack Jack is the best. With all those powers at his disposal, he’s certainly growing up to become the G.O.A.T. 😍.
The Incredibles 2, just like its predecessor, is a fun movie more about family than it is about superheroism. It’s a fun ride that, in its own way, unabashedly preaches the sweet, ancient message – family above all – which is a much needed Gospel in this present time. Sequels seldomly live up to their predecessors; this one does, telling us Pixar did their homework right, and that the long wait was worth it.
PS: After Jack Jack, I love Dash next… He’s pleasantly silly. 😁
