Incredibles 2


The Incredibles was a fun film with that sarcastic bit in its treatment that sort of spoofed the then existed superhero genre. The rooted story of the movie which ultimately had the togetherness of family as its central idea was a consistently funny one with a breath of fresh air. Even though the new one is not making any groundbreaking changes in its approach the writing of Incredibles 2 has managed to address the ongoing debates into its content subtly and that sort of gives the movie relevance.


So the movie starts pretty much from where the last one ended. And the last mission which was about to begin at the end of The Incredibles messes up things for the Parr family as the acceptance for superheroes got compromised after that. When the Parr family struggled financially, a man named Winston Deavor offers to help them in bringing back the recognition of the superheroes. How that happens and through what all things the family had to go through is what this movie all about.

With all the Me Too and Times up movements happening, the idea in this movie becomes a relevant conflict. Here we have Helen Parr aka Elastigirl being asked to do the superhero stuff while her husband Bob aka Mr. Incredible decides to take care of the family of three kids who are at various points in their life. The film isn’t preachy at all and we have witty moments frequently. But still, we get to see visuals of a man realizing how difficult it is to raise kids. He is trying to solve the relationship issue of his daughter, studies of his son and also there is this toddler who is the scene stealer of the whole movie. Things may not be as fabulous as, let’s say a Zootopia, but Incredibles 2 has a rooted feel and also an evident politics.




Brad Bird manages to maintain the nuances that made the first movie a delightful one and like I said, the timely inclusion of ideas like gender equality makes it an impressive creation. The fun factor never gets lost anywhere and the spearhead of all the fun is the baby Jack-Jack who simply wins our heart with his cuteness. Dash was another character who became a personal favorite for me from the first part. Samuel L Jackson voiced Frozone gets a better screen time this time. The animation looks elegant and the grandness of the set pieces and the engaging choreography of all of it makes the two-hour long movie a fun ride.

It might not be breaking the template in a big way, but the nuances and the grounded characters make Incredibles 2 a really fun movie with some rib tickling moments of laughter.
