I had heard this movie was painfully average and boring, but I didn't really see that. The villain was a bit dull, but their motives honestly raised a good point. The whole "it's a man's world" theme wasn't as bad as I feared - man or woman, someone has to step up and take charge of the family. Someone has to bring home the bacon and be the earner. Don't like pride or childishness blur that fact, and if you're a woman, don't be ashamed of being the one to take charge of the house and kids. It's hard work and it's important. If you're a man, don't feel like you have to push yourself to your breaking point every day out of fear that you'll let your family down. The side-Supers were interesting, but under-utilized, and the same can be said about Jack-Jack and Edna's relationship. Just not enough time was put on them to really make them stand out. My biggest problem with this movie is the huge continuity error that relates to Jack-Jack. Spoilers, I guess? But they constantly bring up that they didn't know he had powers. Did the writers just... forget the last act of the first Incredibles? Even Elastigirl didn't know about this, apparently. And she saw Jack-Jack's powers firsthand. It was so frustrating and annoying to see them go through the whole "Jack-Jack has POWERS?!" realization over and over when they've already had it, in the first movie. Still, it's not terrible, but I'm not so sure it's something I'll go back and watch again and again like the first one. You just can't top a villain like Syndrome.
I actually did see this movie, and every star I am giving it goes to the design of the world and characters, the music, and the way they portrayed Mexican culture. This movie is lacking in story, in my opinion. Filled with tired cliches that we've seen over and over. You got the family that just doesn't understand, you got the big misunderstanding that leads to disaster between Miguel and Hector, and you got the really nice guy that turns around is suddenly an evil monster. The villain really is my biggest problem with the movie. I wish they would put more effort into these villains. What drove him to such a drastic choice? Why did he feel like he had to do what he did to his friend? Did he have a family he wanted to take care of as well? Make him more human and relatable, please, because he's basically just the prince from Frozen at this point. The family is also terrible aside from Hector, like they are all awful and manipulative people aside from Coco and her father. Just really unlikable people.
