“Incredibles 2” Teen View






Review by Ian Delia

The original Disney/PIXAR’S The Incredibles was very unique for a Disney animated film. When this film hit the theaters, it blew the minds of the people going to see it. Now 14 years later, a sequel has arrived with an original story full of adventure and comedy. Admiringly this sequel comes out making many of the superhero fanatics of the past excited to watch part two. As for the audience of the first movie who are now beyond kiddie age, they will be ecstatic as the newbies.

The Incredibles 2004 was over a decade ago, but the sequel is defiantly worth the 14 year long wait. The audience has grown up since then. We are considered “millennial’s” that will be lining up to watch this newer masterpiece taking place where the first incredible “Incredibles” movie left off. For those who have seen the movie in theaters or on video, at the end of the first movie, there was an attack by a villain named “The Underminer”. As the final bit of film ends the antihero threat made all who have watched it, think a sequel was on the way. There is also a video game called “Incredibles: Rise of the Underminer” made for PlayStation 2. Even the video game anticipated the Underminer to wreak havoc on the city. So why the wait for so many years? Unfortunately, your guess is as good as mine.

This sequel to “Incredibles” is not just a superhero movie. It shows teamwork and the power of people coming together. As for the supers, it isn’t just the core super heroes of Mr. Incredible/ Bob Parr (Craig T. Nelson), Mrs. Incredible/Helen Parr (Holly Hunter), Dash/Dashiell Parr (Huck Milner), and Violet Parr (Sarah Vowell). But there is a new member to the incredible crew that popped up in the last film, Baby jack- jack Parr (Eli Fucile) who now gets to reveal has multiple super powers. And they are a combination of all the family powers plus many new ones of his own.

Unfortunately for the Parr family, they are still in normal mode when Underminer show up on the city streets. After mass destruction of the city the Incredibles and Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson) are not able to contain the damage done to the city and have failed once again. So in the eyes of the law, they are abolished again to live normal lives

However, a guy named Winston Dever (Bob Odenkirk) has a proposal to bring back the super heroes once again to become the saviors of their cities. He gathers heroes who have been banished from all over the word together to face off against the dreaded foe Screenslaver that has been a challenge for Elastigirl. Each of the heroes have different talents so think X-Men joining in with Frozone and the Incredibles.

My prediction as to future audience motivation to see this movie: Think Bob Parr when you read this run-on sentence  “Cause I first saw it in theaters when I was a kid, and now they’re releasing the 2nd movie, so I don’t care how old I would be I’m seeing it, and also the amount of effort, and detail they put into the movie with the animations, I just have a feeling it’ll be a great movie, not just for me but for any person or family”.  Umm, he took the words right out of my mouth.

MPAA rated PG for action sequences and some mild language. (4.5 out of 5 stars)
