strong Mr Incredible (Bob Parr) is recalled to super hero work after
being sacked for throwing his stumpy boss through three walls after
a dressing down... But he doesn't tell his wife, until she comes
looking for him one day because he has been kidnapped...
Bob married Elastigirl (Helen Parr) who is very stretchy. They have
three kiddies: Violet (she can go invisible), Dash (he can run like
the wind) and a baby who seems to become a little devil when in
two oldest kiddies stow away in the ship flown by Mom to go rescue
our panel of critics thought
animated, colourful, but a little bit dull."
that the first on-screen 'domestic' argument in CGI history?"
had an elastic band like that once, but I feel sure that I would
never have married one unless I was Super Paper-clip Man."
have worked in a claims department of an insurance department and,
while it is true that it is heart breaking when you have to deny
coverage to a sweet little old lady with her grey hair in a bun,
in the main old people are vile obnoxious smelly violent varmints
who deserve no less than they get."
Incredibles have a sprinkler system in their home? Who on earth
came up with that stupid idea...? The only reason I like them in
the office is because, when they accidentally-on-purpose go off,
you can't do a jot of work for a week while IT dry out all the computers
with their hair dryers."
think I am going to become a 3D animation textures spotter after
listening to the directors commentary on this DVD. A 3D animation
textures spotter is a bit like a train spotter but you spot animated
textures. Anyone seen an animated movie with 50/50 Polyester/Cotton
mix in it? I want it for my collection."
came up with the idea that you can disguise yourself by just putting
a small mask around your eyes? What is that supposed to hide? Laughter
lines? Bags? And what if you don't like wearing contact lenses and
have to wear eyeglasses on top of your mask, would that give you
away? Or are all superheroes supposed to have 20/20 vision? Damn
these interminable questions!"
the people in positions of power in this movie are super short.
(The boss in the insurance company and the big glasses woman at
the security company.) This is the most height-ist movie I have
ever seen in my life. I want a refund."
Frozone based on French animated Superhero Monsieur Fromage? Mr
Fromage squirts cream cheese from his wrists in the same way as
Frozone does ice. I feel a law suit coming on..."
tell me the ending or whole plot if necessary
with super hero buddy Frozone (Lucius Best) the bad guy (Buddy Pine/Syndrome)
is defeated, but, wait a minute, is that a set up for The Incredibles
Number 2 at the very end... oh, yep looks like it to me...
movie is brilliantly animated, however the story is a little bit
slow at times and, while the picture on the screen is undoubtedly
stunning, brilliantly lit at times and the ideas well executed,
we felt disappointed, because we were expecting a 100% action movie.
(It's about a 70% action movie.) It's a very long movie too, 107
movie was an ambitious undertaking, which may well grow over repeated
viewings. We saw it only twice for this review, the second time
with the directors DVD commentary. Young families may well enjoy
