Review: The Incredibles 2 (No Spoilers)

By Angel

Movie description: “Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) is left to care for the kids while Helen (Elastigirl) is out saving the world.”

The Good

– I got to see things in the movie that I’ve been waiting to see for 14 years, like the battle with the Underminer, more of Jack-Jack’s powers, and additional heroes!

– Animation was incredible!

– Music was exciting!

– Action sequences were beautifully choreographed!

– Voice work was perfect, emotion felt real and gave the characters depth!

– The villain had a great motivation! The antagonist makes us observe how society would behave within a world where super heroes exist, there is an interesting opinion on the situation and arguably convincing.

The Bad

– The narrative felt redundant and it seemed like the characters didn’t grow from overcoming their obstacles in the first movie. The roles between Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl were just switched. Trying to change the perception of supers was the main goal the first time around and I think sequels should try to show us a story or viewpoint we never considered. The first film benefits from giving us a journey that we didn’t expect. It felt like I had seen this before, an example of that being the Mr. Mom trope with Mr. Incredible handling the kids. They used a safe direction for this installment, nothing felt fresh or took a risk which made it less intriguing.

– Villain and plot was EXTREMELY predictable which eliminated the sense of discovery and suspense.
