"The Incredibles" is by far and away the most mature and engaging Pixar film to date.
This movie is nothing less than a display of sheer brilliance to an utmost prestigious level that proves the genius in director Brad Bird ("The Iron Giant"). From the perfectly created characters to the witty and humorous dialog involved, "The Incredibles" is the ideal film for true fans of the animation and/or comic book genre. It doesn't fail to provide viewers of with a fragment of every genre; incredible animation, action, and even a bit of drama.
However, the aspect most evident in "The Incredibles" that was frequently credited for the success of its predecessors was the emotional aspect. The thesis on midlife crossroads on personal and professional dilemmas was well presented.
Bob Parr (Craig T. Nelson) seems an average guy who works in an insurance agency, and lives a "normal" mediocre life with his wife Helen and three kids: Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack. But there's more to it, actually. Bob used to be Mr. Incredible, and Helen was Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), two of the world's greatest crime fighters until a series of lawsuits have forced superheroes to adopt civilian identities. But when Bob receives a mysterious call that has him for a top secret assignment, he sees this as an opportunity to be Mr. Incredible again. He accepts the mission but soon discovers that it is a trap of a nemesis from way back, and the whole family eventually has to to join him to fight evil and save the world.
What we have here is something that unfortunately becoming quite a rare thing nowadays: an example of a truly brilliant animation. As I have said, not only does it have some of the most phenomenal computer graphics and action sequences ever committed to film, but like all the best movies it also has the heart to support the movie between the adrenaline-pumping moments.
The main reason for this is the great characterization. "The Incredibles" may contain a little too much of violence that may be better suited for older children than the younger ones. Yet one cannot easily discount the family themes and comic episodes, with characters like superhero-costume designer Edna (voiced by Bird) and Bob's friend Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson) providing ample support.
Another is that the film, as is with previous Pixar films, is effective in the use of computer generated images (CGI) which is a major plus for moviegoers. The details in which the animators for the film present are awe-inspiring and breathtaking. The music also pasted itself impeccably with the atmosphere Bird has created for the film. Very retro.
It is a demonstration of precision and excellence, created by the brilliance and meticulous mannerisms of the director. It goes beyond an animated movie and is without a doubt one of the best animations of all time. It is truly incredible to see a film like this.

"The Incredibles" is by far and away the most mature and engaging Pixar film to date.
I hope that this movie does really well because this has to be one ofthe best animated movies I have ever seen. The story is really cool andit's obvious that there is a lot of respect here for the source ofsuperheroes, whether it be comic books, serial flicks or Saturdaymorning cartoons.
The movie has an undeniably cool retro feel to it and it shows not onlyin the design of the picture but also in the music, which definitelysounds like something out of a 60's 007 flick. It is also unusuallydark, especially for a Pixar flick. I'm not saying it's dark wherepeople are getting their heads delivered to someone in a box or familymembers are sleeping with each other or anything like that but therewere moments where I found myself wondering if a little kid might beable to deal with the intensity of what was going on on screen. Maybeit was the fact that the heroes were in very real danger most of thetime. The bad guys weren't out to catch them as much as they were outto kill them. When you discover who the film's villain is, you canliterally feel his anger coming off the screen. I may beover-exaggerating a bit but then again, it really is to the film'scredit that it deals with human emotions in the way that it does.
Even though you are watching a film that is populated by CGIcharacters, the emotions they convey in what they say and do comeacross as purely believable. Whether watching Bob Parr interact withpeople at his job or just sitting at his desk was something that rangtrue to me, just in the feeling of it. Everything about this movie hasa very concrete feel to it, even while looking like something you'd seein a comic book. The computer graphics in general were absolutelyamazing and the voice acting is excellent across the board, so good infact, that I really can't pick a favorite from the entire cast. I haveto say that Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter were very good as Mr.Incredible and Elastigirl respectively. They had a moment near the endof the film that actually touched me but you can see that foryourselves. Samuel L. Jackson was hilarious and thankfully, he wasn'toverused. Dash and Violet were realized so well that every time theycame up on screen, I loved every minute of it. Dash, in particular wasone of the funniest characters in the movie. Jason Lee made for aformidable villain as Syndrome. I loved the fact that he was yourtypical antagonist but was also aware of the conventions surroundingsuch a role, like when he chides himself for 'monologuing'. He was alsoone ruthless bastard, I'll give him that. Even the bit part characterswere hilarious. There was a kid on a tricycle in this movie who comesout twice and made me laugh out loud both times.
In fact, this movie reminds me of why I like Finding Nemo overMonsters, Inc. In Finding Nemo, not only are the main characters greatbut every other character they run into makes some kind of impressionon you. Remember all the characters that Marlin and Dory ran into ontheir adventures together? Of course you do. Whether it was that crazypelican with the Australian accent, Willem Dafoe as Gill, leader of thefishtank crew, or Bruce the Shark, you remember them after all is saidand done and it makes the viewing experience that much richer. That'sexactly how The Incredibles is. Every character that appears will makeyou laugh or intrigue you in some way. I have to admit that I waslaughing myself throughout the entire movie, especially with thecharacter of Edna Mode who almost steals the movie. Man, even the endcredits are awesome! I have to give the director Brad Bird a big thumbsup for this one. He pulled it off and hopefully this will attractattention to his other animated film, "The Iron Giant", which was sadlyoverlooked when it was released and is also a really great film.
All in all, I can't recommend this movie enough. I left very satisfiedand felt no need to compare this to the rest of Pixar's movies. Thisone is just as good if not better than any other animated moviereleased this year and rightfully deserves its place among the bestanimated movies of all time.
RATING: ***** out of *****.
Although "The Incredibles" is not the best film Pixar has released (via Disney) since 1995's "Toy Story," I felt it is the most epic. When I went to go see "Toy Story" in 1995, the epic scale of the picture -- the non-stop frantic pace, the action sequences, etc. -- were all so breathtaking that it contained the same tour de force attitude as, believe it or not, a blockbuster such as "Terminator 2": a crowd-pleasing, overwhelming picture.
"Monsters, Inc." wasn't quite as epic. It was a great movie, just as good as "Toy Story," but it didn't have the same style per se. "Finding Nemo" was very good as well but still didn't capture the same epic scale as "Toy Story." (I'm not saying that's a bad thing, just different.) "The Incredibles" seemed to. I saw it on DVD and from beginning to end the action is non-stop, the laughs aplenty, and the exotic locations and action-hero references continuous. For this reason, somehow, it reminded me very much of "Toy Story." It seemed like older Pixar, rather than some of their newer stuff (all of which is great as well). Pixar has yet to make a bad movie. Even their worst -- "A Bug's Life" -- was better than most animated films.
"The Incredibles" also returns to the spoof roots of "Monsters, Inc." and "Toy Story" (something "Finding Nemo" did but not as often) -- it parodies cultural references. (Something hard to do in an underwater sea adventure.) Although this is a family film, it is NOT a "children's film." That is evident from the beginning when the fake news reel in "The Incredibles" features articles about a suicidal man suing superheroes because he "didn't want to be saved." This is clearly a tongue-in-cheek criticism of the shameless legal standards of the day. (Such as the woman who sued McDonald's because her coffee was too hot. A true story!) Another film might not be clever enough to integrate iconic cultural references into itself but "The Incredibles" does.
Similarly, using superheroes, Pixar examines the at-home relationship of a family and spoofs our own rituals. (Such as eating at the dinner table -- the mom tries to stop the squabbling kids just like we do, only because she has superpowers, it's a bit... different.) All in all "The Incredibles" really is a great animated film. I enjoyed it more than "Finding Nemo" (which I didn't expect to as I loved "Nemo") and just as much as "Toy Story" and "Monsters, Inc." Pixar has solidified a new style of family film-making -- the cultural parody animated film -- and the evidence of this can be seen in such take-offs of the formula as "Shrek" and "Shark Tale" (which featured many cultural references as well).
All in all "The Incredibles" is incredibly fun. And funny.
