Best Pixar movie of all time!
September 17, 2016
Very few movies are as perfect on every level as The Incredibles. The music is memorable and fits the genre to a T, the characters are both new and interesting as well as nostalgic, and the plot and tone are delightfully campy in the best of ways.

Honestly the only word to describe the film is, indeed, Incredible.

Debatably my favorite pixar film, it took a fresh spin on the superhero genre and somewhat modernized it. The plot was great, the characters were genuine and funny, and of course the Pixar animation was impeccable.

One of the most endearing and well crafted animated movies of its era, The Incredibles is and remains one of my personal animated favorites, effectively combining witty humor, bits of adult content, some great voice talents and a really lovable family into a top notch film. Even more incredible (pun intended) is that The Incredibles is one of the freshest, most interesting superhero stories even when compared against the supersized cinematic universes that now exist. Not to mention it is easily one of the best films in the Pixar catalogue, right up there with Toy Story, Monsters and Up. If you're struggling with superhero fatigue but love the genre or just want a fantastic animated film for all ages, The Incredibles is a timelessly appropriate gig.

The script and its execution was so brilliantly on-par with real arguments between spouses and children, making it so relatable and hilarious. So funny, engaging, and charming. The perfect film for all ages, family or no.

This may be the best animated film ever made. It has great action, acting, animation and is full of the Pixar heart. The film will make both kids and adults laugh and will always be a Pixar classic. Brad bird and the cast do a good job of making the film not only funny but also fast paced and interesting. The plot is very nice with no plot holes. Pixar don't do bad films. This proves it

It was a good pixel movie

Watching 2004 "The Incredibles", it becomes no surprise the 6th Pixar release is considered this studio's greater hit. Every element of this action-comedy animation fits in greatly. The story is enganging, characters and their lines are unforgettable. In addition, the movie is filled with James-Bond-level action sequences, which the developers managed to combine perfectly with family aspects of the Incredible family adventure. Overall, it's hard to find any significant shortcoming in "The Incredibles". The movie itself is just fantastic and accounts for the indisputable quality of studio Pixar.

By far showcasing the golden age of Pixar, The Incredibles is an excellent feat of animation, adding up to a family movie that is nimble in design and thought. It raised the bar 10 feet higher for any movie of the same calibre which followed it; and none could quite ready it's undeniable splendour.
Verdict: A+

The Incredibles is a Disney-Pixar animation starring a voice cast which includes Craig T. Nelson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Holly Hunter. After lawsuits bring disapproval of superhero presence, Mr. Incredible and his wife, Elastigirl, are forced to hang up their costumes in favor of ordinary lives. Years later, a familiar face begins killing off heroes one by one, and it's up to The Incredibles to stop him.

This is another solid and entertaining movie in Pixar's filmography. Brad Bird successfully pulls off the triple-threat of film-making, being credited as writer, director, and voice actor in his movie (his voice work as Edna steals the show). The soundtrack is as fun as it should be for this kind of movie - Michael Giacchino delivers big-time in this regard. The last 40 minutes of this movie really stands out, which is where my negatives start. After a solid opening cinematic showing the days of superhero glory, the movie drops off. While it's entertaining to see superpowered individuals struggle with mundane activities, it gets old after a couple scenes. The bulk of this movie is very void of action - there are even long sequences void of dialogue, which is tricky for a kid's movie. Since there really isn't much to the plot here, I feel like the run length could have been cut down by about 20 minutes to keep the momentum going into the final act, but multiple stealth scenes really drag this movie down. It's all worth sitting through to get to the excitement, though. Watching the kids embrace and develop their powers is thrilling.

Overall, The Incredibles is a good movie. Despite many slow patches, there is entertainment value for the whole family, and the message about embracing your individuality resonates with its audience. Give this one a watch!

Final grade: B

We've seen a family of superheroes before; a group of people with extraordinary abilities teaming up to take on a common threat. But what if the family of superheroes were an actual family? Enter 2004's "The Incredibles", an animated action movie that does a great job at capturing the heroics of said family. But that doesn't mean that there are problems with the film; we'll get to them later. Yet, the movie is handled very well in its execution of its subject matter. "The Incredibles" is an interesting depiction at superheroes that has a good premise and execution, yet it still falls short on the heroics.

The story involves a family of superheroes: the Parr's. Each of them have a heroic ability attached to them, i.e super strength, flexibility, etc. The head of the household, Bob, is a superhero under the name Mr. Incredible. Unfortunately, the government has put a ban on superheroes, as they see their "heroics" as an excuse to witness collateral damage to the city being done. In turn, the heroes must give up what they do- serving the public- and lead normal lives. Bob then gets a secret mission to regain his popularity, as well as bringing his self-esteem back. But what Bob uncovers, might not be super at all, and the villain's plan just might involve not only himself, but his family, too.

"The Incredibles" is a good movie on a number of things. First off, the art style used for the basis on the animation provided here, is really good. This comes from writer and director Brad Bird, who based the movie's style as a mix up between 1950's and 1960's design. The latter is taken into more account here. All of the characters and background designs look like something from an artistic comic book, and it definitely works to the film's advantage here. All the animators at Pixar really put in a lot of effort into making this movie look and sound good Plus, going back to the 1960s, the music by Michael Giacchino invokes a feeling of James Bond, as well as the spy genre itself. On top of this, the acting in this movie is great; from Craig T. Nelson as Mr. Incredible, to even Jason Lee as the villainous Syndrome, everyone delivers a great performance with every character provided in the movie. Plus, the action is executed very well, and have interesting payoffs, most notably, the 100 yard dash, where the son, Dash, is running at super fast speed. Overall, "The Incredibles" handles its production smoothly and efficiently, so that everyone can understand and grasp at what's going on.

With that said, there are some major problems with the film. For starters, the movie goes on for way too long. The pacing is, for lack of a better word, incredibly slow, and there is a lot of build up that one has to wait in order to finally pay off. Another downgrade to the film is while the family aspect isn't too bad, the main focus is mostly put on Bob/Mr. Incredible. While this isn't to bad, as it shows both the father and husband aspect, the majority of the family doesn't really come into play until the last third of the movie. This all comes back to the problem with the pacing; at almost two hours, the entire production could have been cut by some amount.

So, is "The Incredibles" a perfect movie? No. There are a vast majority of problems concerning the pacing and the focus from Mr. Incredible. Does the movie work as a superhero flick? Yes, yes it does. There are a lot of good ideas and concepts being presented surrounding the topic of superheroes and family. And, for the most part, it works. In conclusion, "The Incredibles" treats the superhero genre very well, and it could have been perfect, had it gotten more focus on the family. But, we'll just have to wait for...

Great animated movie, Great super hero movie, and just a great movie in general
July 26, 2016
This movie can be best described as an animated and more fun more organized more memorable version of Fantastic Four. Or maybe that wasn't a good comparison? Well, never-mind.
The film is filled with action. Filled with humor. And has a big heart. Most of all, it's entertaining as hell! May not be one of the best installments Pixar has made, but it's still a massive bundle of joy and epicness.
Score: 8.5/10 (Great).
