SYNOPSIS: In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
REVIEW: FINALLY! If you've seen the commercial you know why I open with that word. That is exactly how I felt when I heard that this movie was coming to theaters. FINALLY! What anticipation for what is my favorite of all Disney/PIXAR flicks. I am a huge fan of superhero movies in general, so yeah, this one is my favorite PIXAR. I realize this is saying a lot because how many great Disney/PIXAR films are there? It seems like almost every time one comes out it wins an Oscar or some award for best animated film of that year. With this one, right off the bat I will say that it is at least as good as the first one. 14 years of waiting for what I thought was the Disney/PIXAR film that truly deserved a sequel and finally got one, was worth it.
Winston Deavor: It's time to make some wrong things right! Help me bring supers back into the sunlight. We need to change people's perceptions about superheroes, and Elastigirl is our best play.
Bob Parr: Better than... me?

As is usual, we are treated to another amazing animated short film before the feature film and it is special. Priscilla really needs to see it; it might actually bring a tear to her eye. If you start to recap all these pre-Disney/PIXAR film shorts, you've got to admit these are some of the best short films ever. But on to the feature. This movie is too cool, too cute, too funny, and action packed. Brad Bird is at the helm again and that is a very good thing. Thanks Brad! Once again he does a fantastic job with both the writing and directing. I also get a kick of the fact that he voices one of my favorite characters of this series, Edna Mode. I love Edna and I do so enjoy our visits. Another plus is that we basically have the original cast and that is always a good thing. Once certain actors are linked to certain characters in a good way, it's awkward when that bond is broken. It is a difficult task to accomplish for the casting crew I would imagine, especially 14 years later, so thank you casting crew and thank you cast for reprising your roles.
Edna Mode: [to the tired Bob, who is holding Jack-Jack] Done properly, parenting is a heroic act... done properly.
The underlying theme to the Incredibles films is the importance of family and how it is not an easy task, even for superheroes. Each of them is hit with this fact from different perspectives that we all can relate to in one way or another.
Bob Parr: You have powers! Yeah, baby!
The most interesting member of the family in this installment is the adorable Jack Jack. This baby is a super freak! Talk about having powers, but unfortunately powers that he doesn’t quite know how to control yet. He is “totally wicked” and awesome. The movie as a whole is awesome. I will tell you though that this one is a little grittier, a bit darker, and a tad more sinister. Yes! This makes the storyline a little more interesting. For the fans of the soundtrack (understandably so), the music is just as good too. All in all, if you enjoyed the first one, you’ve got to see this one. I left the theater with a smile.
