Starring: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Huck Milner, Sarah Vowell, Brad Bird & Samuel L. Jackson
Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back – but this time Helen is in the spotlight, leaving Bob at home with Violet and Dash to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transistion for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
This is a rare sequel that lives up to everybody’s expectations and delivers as much joy, pathos, and adventure as the original – plus some!
It’s a perfectly snappy, chucklesome and heartfelt entertainment, with little retro facilities you latch onto, and this time the threat is much bigger and scarier – even delivering a jump-scare or two.
The animation has been given a huge upgrade, whilst still staying true to the style of the original movie.
Pixar once again seamlessly encourages us to think as we smile, laugh, cringe and cry with this gorgeous looking movie, and the hero family we all grew up watching.
