The Incredibles 2 proves and shows the original Disney gold. Laughter, Action, Fun. It just feels like a true hearted Disney film. I also love how it carries on straight from the First Film. There were some downsides to the film though: it was overtimed, it was a bit slow paced. But other from those minor issues, it thought it was a classic Disney movie.

Does Incredibles 2 live up to its title? Not quite. That said, it's far from a disappointment and one of the year's most entertaining movies. Like every other Disney Pixar film in recent years, the animation is top-tier. The action sequences are exciting, crafted better than most live-action blockbusters. Fantastic voice performances from Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter as Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl.
Brad Bird's script is smart and mature. The family interactions were really well-handled. While Elastigirl is out saving the city, Bob is the stay-home dad, dealing with Violet's teenage angst, helping Dash complete his confusing maths homework, and taking care of Jack-Jack, the most dangerous and destructive member of the Parr family.
A lesser writer might have taken a sillier approach to Bob's struggle and played this aspect of the plot entirely for laughs. Bird does a great job at balancing the comedy and drama. I loved Jack-Jack. He has some of the best moments in the movie, but I didn't like Dash and particularly Violet as much. Their characters were brattier than they were in the original.
My biggest complaint with Incredibles 2 is the villain, Screenslaver, a non-character that has a very weak set-up. Syndrome was a great, fleshed-out machiavellian villain. A character that poked fun at the "toxic fanboy". He wasn't a powerful force that snaps his fingers and wipes out half the universe's population. Syndrome was just a fraud that would get his ass handed to him if it wasn't for his tech. His motivation made more sense to me than Screenslaver's did.
Not a perfect movie like the first Incredibles (I wasn't expecting it to be) but still a satisfying follow-up. I had more fun watching this than almost every other superhero movie that's come out this year (Infinity War is still the best).Hide
