The Incredibles promotes a new moral slogan for our times: The family that fights evil-doers together stays together.

Since it's too much a crowd-pleaser to be critical of the violent payoff that it delivers, it's tough not to take its apparent message seriously.

Bird and the Pixar whizzes do what they do excellently; you just wish they were doing something else.

A standard issue superhero adventure? Probably not the most original thought that's ever crossed (Pixar's) collective minds.

Bird's intricate, colorful and super-kinetic action is a cyber equivalent of eye candy. It's also loaded with empty calories.

An unfortunate use of Pixar magic to tell a tired story in a typical world.

The Incredibles announces the studio's arrival in the vast yet overcrowded Hollywood lot of eardrum-bashing, metal-crunching action sludge.

Succeeds not only as a straight-forward action picture with suspense and excitement, but also as a touching and funny story about the importance of family and individuality.

A spirited state-of-the-art riff on vintage James Bond movies and the superhero ethos of the 1950s and '60s.

Frame for frame, The Incredibles is as good as any live action superhero film ever made, and often far more convincing.

The Incredibles is a zippy, visually powerful riff on what happens when a hero feels like a zero.

The brainiacs at Pixar have created human characters as vivid and believable and utterly endearing as any who have ever appeared on film

As a die-hard Red Sox fan, the highest praise I can give Pixar's latest is that it held my full attention after a madcap and largely sleepless Victory Parade weekend.

'The Incredibles' deserves a place on the top rung of family films.

The animation is as lush and colorful as usual, and a lock for an Oscar nomination for best animated film is as much of a lock as a scorching Arizona summer.

It's funny, dramatic, even heroic: "The Incredibles" largely lives up to its name. But you'll still leave the film feeling that Pixar left something on the table.
