Incredibles 2


At a time when the public has no trust in superheroes anymore, a billionaire contacts the Parrs and offers them a way to relaunch their careers. It took Pixar and Brad Bird 14 years to produce a sequel, but it was worth the wait. Firmly grounded in the originalā€™s visual look, but nicely complemented by the technical progress weā€™ve seen these years, the story lets Elastigirl dominate the action while Mr. Incredible takes care of the kids ā€“ which is also part of the fun, because the baby turns out to have immense powers. A very entertaining film, exceptionally action-packed in 3Dā€¦ perhaps to disguise the fact that the story isnā€™t its strongest ingredient.

2018-U.S. Animated. 118 min. Color. Widescreen. Produced byĀ Nicole Paradis Grindle, John Walker. Written and directed byĀ Brad Bird. Music: Michael Giacchino. Voices of Craig T. Nelson (Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible), Holly Hunter (Helen Parr/Elastigirl), Samuel L. Jackson (Lucius Best/Frozone), Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Sarah Vowellā€¦ Isabella Rossellini, John Ratzenberger, Usher.

Last word: “Finally, I thought I had the right idea. I pitched it, they green-lit it, we got a release date, and then our release date got moved up a year because ‘Toy Story 4’ was having trouble coming together. Then suddenly, I realized a chunk of the movie didnā€™t serve the idea that I was committed to, which was the role switch. The superhero/villain plot involved artificial intelligence and it was a cool idea, but it didnā€™t operate emotionally with the part that I was committed to with the family. So, that part of the idea was constantly changing through production, and we had this oncoming freight train of the release date, a year closer than it should have been. So, it was a race.” (Bird, Deadline)
