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.
Quite funny animated movie about a family of super heroes. Better than expected, but I like the original Shrek movie or the first part of the Madagascar series better!
This movie is... THX with Disney and Pixar movie in my life!!! #ShiftvW8
I found parts of this movie extremely disturbing when it first came out. All these years later, I still can see why. An intriguing tone for a kids' movie, but I'm still not sure how well it works. If this movie ever gets a sequel, I'd be interested to see if the mood of the film changes. Still, a deeply entertaining piece of children's fiction.
