I know, just about every review out there right now regarding Incredibles 2 has been praising it immensely, which it deserves. You may be reading this believing that I, too, will applaud it in the same ways and you’d be absolutely right. I believe that no one can get tired of reading that Incredibles 2 was just that, incredible.
Here we are with our favorite super family. We have Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson), his very flexible wife Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), and their children Jack-Jack (Eli Fucile), Violet (Sarah Vowell), and Dash (Huck Milner). Each of them has a special power, or multiple.
This was simply a fantastic movie. For me, it was better than the first. Many reviews I’ve read have said it’s “equally as good” or “not quite as good but still great” compared to the first one. I look at it as a full-on upgrade from the first, which was amazing.
The voice acting was slightly different for each of the characters, but this could be expected as time passes, voices change, and actors are switched out. It’s been 14 dang years, so there’s no point in complaining.
I thought the story was so interesting in its ability to continue the original storyline while also adding in a completely new – and creepier – villain. I adored the story focus on both Elastigirl and Mr. Incredible switching roles. Elastigirl is the superhero in control while Bob is the stay-at-home dad.
Incredibles 2 was easily one of my top 10 movies of the year and I highly recommend everybody to see it. There’s something for everybody to enjoy, whether you’re a dad celebrating Father’s Day or a teen who grew up watching the Incredibles.
