Incredibles 2 Reviews

June 29, 2018
Incredibles 2 regresses to a time when any power women managed to acquire was carefully controlled so as not constitute a threat to the male order. Such nostalgia is self-defeating.

I exaggerate not a bit when I say that parents will feel just as empowered while watching "Incredibles 2" as any child.
June 21, 2018
It's a nostalgic vision of total power of a local minimum that echoes sickeningly with the nostalgic pathologies of the current day, nowhere more than in Win's enthusiastic declaration of his plan to "make superheroes legal again."
June 19, 2018
The Incredibles 2 is an undeniable triumph, but it is also so keenly aware that it becomes exhausting.
June 18, 2018
Once Michael Giacchino's score -- his best and most excitable -- was up and running, I was happy and hooked.
June 15, 2018
It's really fun, and it moves really well. It was paced beautifully and is gorgeously detailed...Get there early and see everything.

Do you remember when superhero movies were light-hearted popcorn fare instead of overwrought epics? "The Incredibles 2," which is absolutely delightful, recalls that time.

Big, annoying and mostly, pointless.

June 15, 2018
At a time when movie screens are clogged with indistinguishable superheroes, Incredibles 2 rises above the noise with its defiantly humane soul.

June 14, 2018
Incredibles 2 feels like a rebuke of the audience that came to gawk at a superhero movie - and worse, that had the nerve to identify with its superior protagonists.

Once again, the action is fittingly spectacular, the music is great, and the whole thing looks fantastic.
June 14, 2018
Disney/Pixar's "Incredibles 2" is a great-looking sequel about the importance of family, and the potential for revenue.
June 14, 2018
No longer so incredible - and in truth, they never really were - Brad Bird and the Parrs are now happy just to be thought of as reliably entertaining.

June 14, 2018
Bursting with style and imagination, "The Incredibles 2" sets a standard that few superhero flicks - animated or live-action - can match.

June 14, 2018
Even in the midst of its many boundless pleasures, Incredibles 2 charges us with a mission that's not for the faint of heart: to choose to look at one another instead of being fixated on the screens all around us.
June 14, 2018
It cleverly inverts some of the original's storylines, builds on the central themes and provides an all-you-can-eat buffet of eye candy.

June 14, 2018
In the end, the feeling you may take with you as you leave the theater, despite the forced good cheer of the finale and Michael Giacchino's airily mellifluous score, is one of disenchantment.

June 13, 2018
Like his superheroes, Mr. Bird is extraordinarily good at destruction, which is very much in evidence in the virtuosic, often delightful "Incredibles 2," which picks up narratively where the last movie left off.
June 13, 2018
Whatever the intention, "Incredibles 2" plays out as the worst of both worlds, a combination of the typical weaknesses of both animated and live-action superhero films, with few of the strengths.

June 13, 2018
While it takes time to build up steam and set up its plot mechanics, once everyone is in costume and letting loose, it's an exhilarating ride.
June 13, 2018
It's a solid double and that's just fine, but I'll admit to a feeling of mild disappointment it wasn't a grand slam, given the greatness of the first adventure and the grand and creative mind of Mr. Bird.

The Incredibles 2 makes its mark as a thrilling family adventure that can go pound-for-pound with any superhero movie, live action or otherwise.

It's good, fun family entertainment but it's not incredible.

June 13, 2018
A sparkling contraption of an animated comedy, funny and often wondrous in its midcentury-modern vision of an alternate America frozen in the amber of a bygone idealism.

For all the slick panache Bird and his team of animators have brought to the style of "Incredibles 2," they've built in the most important element of all - actual danger, which creates actual emotional investment

June 12, 2018
This one still delights. But its satire on superheroes no longer seems quite so, well, incredible.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 12, 2018
This follow-up is every bit the start-to-finish sensation as the original, and Brad Bird's subversive spirit is alive and thriving. Like its Oscar-winning predecessor, The Incredibles 2 doesn't ring cartoonish. It rings true.

Incredibles 2 is a reminder of what a collective joy it can be when a filmmaker with a singular vision and purpose makes a film of boundless scope and budget.

I'm holding out hope for an "Incredibles 3" where Violet and Elastigirl team up against a baddie who goes by The Patriarchy.

June 11, 2018
It's good - funny, smart and contemporary. By definition it can't be as groundbreaking as the first film, but never does it feel like a cash grab.

June 11, 2018
In a narrative about how to handle your work/life balance to the benefit of both spouses as well as the betterment of your children, "Incredibles 2" seems content to punch the clock and do its job reasonably well.

Pixar films are famously beautiful when it comes to character design and art direction, but Incredibles 2 is one of the most significant achievements in this regard.

June 11, 2018
Perhaps most intriguingly, Incredibles 2 is both pop-culture eye candy and a sly critique of it.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
June 11, 2018
Brad Bird's The Incredibles 2 is, much like its predecessor, delightful as an animated feature but really, really delightful as a superhero picture.
June 11, 2018
Though it would be unrealistic to expect "Incredibles 2" to have quite the genre-busting surprise of the original, it is as good as it can be without that shock of the new - delivering comedy, adventure and all too human moments with a generous hand.

Incredibles 2 is a movie that lavishes attention on the details but loses sight of the whole, where you can't see the forest for the meticulously rendered trees.
June 11, 2018
The animation is stellar and detailed in excellent action sequences, Michael Giacchino's score swings harder than ever, and the first film's family-friendly warmth is just as appealing now as it was then.

It's still fun to watch smart storytellers like [Brad] Bird working within the system and using his platform to self-evaluate or comment on what's going on, even if the conclusion is a little flimsy.

Their adventures are timeless. And this one is worth the incredibly long wait.

June 11, 2018
A similarly rousing and savvy adventure that energetically serves up more of what we love and yet wisely, wittily, reverses the first film's accommodating traditionalism to make for an even richer, funnier portrait of its tight and in-tights family.
June 11, 2018
While Incredibles 2 rarely treads new stylistic or thematic ground, what it lacks in cohesion or originality it makes up for with a remorseless willingness to entertain.
June 11, 2018
What was organic, and even obsessive, in the first outing comes off as pat and elaborate formula here.
June 11, 2018
Incredibles 2 certainly proves worth the wait, even if it hits the target but not the bull's eye in quite the way the first one did.
June 11, 2018
Of course, Incredibles 2, for all of its domesticity, is never dull.

Don't let the dazzle fool you. Bird's made the weirdest Pixar movie ever, revolutionary and retro, an anti-authoritarian ode to good parenting.

Here's hoping they're back again soon; I can't wait to meet Jack-Jack's unlucky preschool teacher.
