Elastigirl springs into action to save the day, while Mr. Incredible faces his greatest challenge yet -- taking care of the problems of his three children.
The Incredibles 2 picks up right where the first (amazing) movie left off with the Underminer raining havoc on the banks of Metroville, and the fun doesn’t stop.
This time around the Parr family (alias The Incredibles) attempts to juggle 'normal' life, a punchy (literally) political campaign to help make superheroes legal again, and a sinister new villain, the Screenslaver.
While the plot plays along similar lines to the first movie, The Incredibles 2 brings the best bits back (let me hear you say Edna Mode!) in a modern new package.
The phrase "they shouldn't have made another one" has almost become a saying in its own
right, but The Incredibles 2 bucks the trend by living up to the expectations of Incredibles fans and no doubt bringing in a new legion of enthusiasts.
For the kids, there is action, laughs, and a plethora of new superheroes.
For the adults, aside from the above, there are a lot of relevant social undertones – addition to digital devices, gender roles, career fulfillment, and parenting – but nothing so over the top that it distracts from the fun and over all good-vibes of the film.
After 14 years of waiting (yip, it's been 14 years!) The Incredibles have returned for a nostalgic, empowering, family-focused adventure that will have you bringing out those red tights I know you have stashed away.
