Incredibles 2 reunites Pixar's family crimefighting team for a long-awaited follow-up that may not quite live up to the original, but comes close enough to earn its name.

How great to see them back in this funny, exciting, if less audacious film.
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.
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."
Both films in the series combine farce with highly tuned stunts and a delicate way with characterisation once seen only in hand-drawn animation.
The Incredibles 2 is an undeniable triumph, but it is also so keenly aware that it becomes exhausting.
I also appreciated how Incredibles 2 allowed the kids to be empowered without turning them into mini-adults like other franchises do.
Hugely entertaining from start to finish.
An incredibly fun, action-packed family adventure.
To recapture the energy of that first amazing movie and update the narrative for a world in which superhero movies have become the backbone of the American cinema would seem to be an unattainable goal ... and yet they reach it.
It's hard to recapture or exceed that magical feeling of seeing something new and unique as the first Incredibles presented itself to be. Incredibles 2 is such a worthy sequel that it certainly warrants another sequel to become a bigger franchise.
The biggest struggle the sequel finds is that it really doesn't have anything new to say that wasn't present in the first film.
After the undeniable triumph of the first film, I can't entirely wrap my head around why the sequel let me down so much. The animation is flawless, the production design spot on, the action sequences soar. The soundtrack is already maybe a bit too much on the nose, with its catchy 60s agent fanfares. The real problem is the plot, though. It's just not particularly interesting, nor is the villain reveal very surprising. The biggest problem is, that I did not get the impression the movie likes superheroes all that much.
This outing of the first superhero family of film is noteworthy for the daring decision to feature the female lead most prominently - as the male lead struggles with care of the family unit. Interestingly, Mr. Incredible is shown as quite overwhelmed in taking on Elastigirl's traditionally assigned functions, while Elastigirl herself is quite at home doing his job. Also on display is the emerging unknown quantity in the baby of the family - who seems endowed with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. All of this is kept interesting and dynamic, the emphasis on humor running throughout the piece to pleasing effect.
It is a pity that the identity of the villain is so obvious, and I also find it funny that no one even considers using Voyd's power as a solution in the movie's climax, but never mind, this is a great sequel that manages to be thrilling, hilarious and more visually stunning than ever.
After 15 years it is really impressive that this film can pick up right where it left off without a hitch. The movie is very entertaining, with an interesting plot and very funny gags. I think the Jack Jack jokes were a little too played out, but crowd-pleasing nonetheless. Overall another hit for PIxar along with Coco, after a couple of slow years.
