Bob Parr has given up his superhero days to log in time as an insurance adjuster and raise his three children with his formerly heroic wife in suburbia. But when he receives a mysterious assignment, it's time to get back into costume.
After the fantastic outing that was The Iron Giant, Brad Bird delivers The Incredibles. Darker at times than most Disney/Pixar fare The Incredibles, along with Ratatouille, are my favourite Pixar films.
The voice cast is pitch perfect and evokes a real family dynamic that is the soul of this film. Between the animation artists and Holly Hunter they bring to life a living, breathing Mother with a love for her family that is palpable on screen. A true achievement.
The script is one of the tightest of all the Pixar films, the photography is stunning. The water/fluid effects blew away anything that had come before it and are still a benchmark of rendering.
The scene where Frozone is asking his wife where his super suit is is truly hilarious and I still quote it now.
