The Incredibles

Connor Macgregor Reviews...The Incredibles

I would say this is one of Pixar's most underrated film they have made, but it is debatable. This is a review of The Incredibles.

Mr. Incredible (A.K.A. Bob Parr), and his wife Helen (A.K.A. Elastigirl), are the world's greatest famous crime-fighting superheroes in Metroville. Always saving lives and battling evil on a daily basis. But fifteen years later, they have been forced to adopt civilian identities and retreat to the suburbs where they have no choice but to retire of being a superhero and force to live a "normal life" with their three children Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack (who were secretly born with superpowers). 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.

For many reasons, i adore this film so much. First of all is the characters. I love these characters and their personalities, and how their superpowers help to mend their personalities together. You have Bob AKA Mr Incredible as the strong father who is strong and tough and is the man of the house. Helen AKA Elastigirl, who has to keep order and be in multiple places at once hence the stretching. Dash Parr who is fast and ecentric which is common for a ten year old boy. Violet who is shy and a sort of loner and tends to have her own space, hence the forcefields. Jack Jack is the baby, but his power isn't known yet. Samuel L Jackson voices Frozone who i just think is great (Despite he looks like Cyclops).

The Villian is one of the best villians quite possibly in cinema. Syndrome voiced by Jason Lee. He wanted to be a superhero, but after being rejected by Mr Incredible, he becomes a really dark person and sets out to become a superhero in the most horrific of ways. Its quite dark for Pixar standards.

The Incredibles is a very entertaining film and underrated in some ways. A Great premise, realistic but also unrealistic setting, well developed characters, this film has all the parts to create a pixar classic.
