Awful, really sexist, dull and boring! - Incredibles 2 review by CS

Spoiler Alert
06/12/2018

Incredibles 2: I was extremely disappointed by this movie, whilst the first film is brilliant and refreshing, this film has allowed a certain theme to become so over riding that it literally takes over the film! The current ‘Me Too’ and ‘Feminist’ Movements appear to have been taken on board by the makers and completely misunderstood in the process! This isn’t really an Incredibles movie at all, it’s really just an ‘Elastigirl’ Film, as it focuses almost entirely on her, with the rest of the family taking a sideline, like a needless appendage! Sadly the makers appear to have pandered so much to feminist girl power theme, that it overrides anything else and literally takes over completely ruining the film, sadly at the cost of destroying what in the original film was a great theme, that originally focussed on family! The real irony of course is that whilst pushing the Girl Power and Feminism angle, Elastigirl wears a skin tight suit, with her breasts popping out, legs up to her waist, fulsome buttocks and a valley like crutch, all designed to look as sexy as possible, because we all know that sex sells, and of course she’s got brains to boot, which comes across as slightly hypocritical. And the real irony is that the bad guy, in the end, actually turns out to be a bad girl! I felt this sexist approach ruined the special family dynamic built up in the first film, and seemed to suggest that men are hopeless at everything and women are fantastic! I actually found this a very difficult and quite boring film to watch, so much so that I had to watch it in two parts. I thought there was nothing new or stand pout about this film, that it basically stole lots of ideas from past films and was highly predictable in the process.

In fact the bonus Feature short film ‘Bao’ is far superior in every way and actually made me cry!

Repetition renders the Incredibles 2 mundane - Incredibles 2 review by AF

Spoiler Alert
03/01/2019

The trouble with sequels is that they can never replicate the thrill of originality. The animation here would be, um, incredible had we not seen it before, the script is adequate but lacks the heft of the original movie and the character voicing is as expected. This film just felt like more of the same, which seems a pity when the first movie felt so much like a substantial upping of the animation game. Ah well, the film is watchable, which is more than can be said for most Hollywood product.

Highly fun filled sequel though a tad overcooked with cultural sexism messages in the first act - Incredibles 2 review by Tej

Spoiler Alert
10/01/2019

I am an Arnie/Stallone/Statham action movie lover but I absolutely love female heroism in movies too, from since I was six years old, when Princess Leia converted Luke/Han rescue mission into a facety "take the lead and do it bloody right" approach. Then Ellen Ripley came along and stole the crown. But it's because females have been culturally perceived as "weaker" that is what makes them more badass than a male equivalent for me. They also have that little bit more complexity in their performances, adding more dimension. I love that and forever support them as greater complex action heroes. Girl power rocks. Generally of course because all actors are at the mercy of good writing and direction and of their own acting abilities.

Women are not conquering the world to enslave men, they are simply demanding more respect and equality, deservedly so. I hail to that as I know damn well how much they have been victimised.

I say all that first because in this film, I have to admit it overcooks the sexism message in the first act, dragging the pace a tad even for an exposition! But the theme is important and is worked in with lots of humour. But when the main story kicks in...

...it's fun fun fun, with superb actions sequences (Elastigirl is awesome), comedy and domestic humour, complete with an especially adorable Jack Jack.

So what we really have here, is a sequel that is exactly the same as the original....but gender swapped. Elastigirl is the superhero in dominant action while Mr Incredible is home-husband. There are plot revelations but you would probably guess it early on.

It's not as great as the first film and I never expected it to be. Sequels for me are about riding out with old friends you love and this film served its purpose, that's all I want. It delivers nothing new to the table (except for the gender role swapping) but given the magnificence of the first film, that's totally fine with me.

So if you taper your expectations, and are not sensitive to the film's reflection of the current cultural environment of female empowerment, I think you will enjoy this film. If you are sensitive like another reviewer here who gave this one star, then perhaps avoid it.

Critic review

Incredibles 2 review by Mark McPherson - Cinema Paradiso

Pixar has had its hills and valleys, but you’d have to search far and wide for one to deny The Incredibles as one of their top-tier masterpieces. So revered was Brad Bird’s family superhero affair that it became the only film that Pixar’s following longed for a sequel. They waited as the years went by and the likes of Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, and Cars all received continuations, pining for the studio to fulfill their wishes. But the wait was more than worth it as Brad Bird returns to The Incredibles after 14 years with something fresh and familiar, proving his animation filmmaking muscles haven’t dulled with age.

The story may at first seem to be a cultural shifting of the familiar family dynamic. In order to make superheroes more acceptable (and legal) to the general public, Helen/Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) goes a solo crusade to clean up crime in a city that could use some superpowered vigilantism. While she is busy being hot on the trail of the new supervillain Screenslaver, Bob/Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) stays at home to hold down the fort for his children; the speedster son Dash, the invisible/shield-crafting daughter, and the unpredictable baby Jack-Jack of seemingly infinite powers. On a purely visual level, the expectations are met; Helen pulls some impressive stunts with a splitting bike and Bob forms a new slump and bags under his eyes for the tireless duties of parenting.

But there’s a much different focus this time around. While the previous film carried a theme of recapturing glory in a world that holds no favor for the accomplished, Incredibles 2 holds a heavier theme of placing trust in others to do well enough on their own. This is not easy for Bob, considering he’s use to both being the breadwinner and the criminal-bester. He takes his new role with a held tongue and concealed scowl, realizing that this move will be good for his family, even if it’s a tough job to accept. While Elastigirl’s adventure is more of an inspiring romp, there’s a more interesting aspect of her being a positive female role model. Her inspiration makes her adored by the public, but also makes the conspiracy she uncovers all the tougher to topple.

If this is all sounding a little adult for a Pixar film, especially with talk of politics and laws, fear not. The key kid component is reserved entirely for Jack-Jack, the child of no intelligible words, but plenty of Chaplin style gags with his many powers. Highlights include a fight with the neighborhood raccoon and his adorable means of slipping into another dimension every time he sneezes. So precious is this baby that even the usually shrill fashion designer Edna (Brad Bird) can’t resist the opportunity to be seen as an auntie. Older kids will also find a lot to love in Dash’s I-didn’t-do-it reactions of tinkering with their new house and Violet’s frustrating love life felt more realized than any animated tween in recent memory.

As with the best of sequels, Incredibles 2 doubles up on what made the first film shine by exploring and adding more to its world. The world feels bigger and better defined, with cities of hover-trains and 60s-style TV stations. There are more heroes present and accounted for in fantastical action sequences, involving all sorts of powers from lava barf to interdimensional portals. The musical score by Michael Giacchino returns with some tracks that go for heavier jazz in the more somber moments while still maintaining that James Bond style swagger of the original theme. And Brad Bird makes his love and inspiration of Jonny Quest known perfectly by inserting plenty of Easter eggs from a Quest logo in the city background to flat-out inserting Jonny Quest onto the televisions of this world.

Incredibles 2 is every bit the sequel the previous film deserves as well as being the type of films that Pixar should be striving for. It’s thoughtful, intelligent, witty, silly, and builds a strikingly original world that seems to be perpetually stuck in the 1960s. Better than the original? Very possible, but hard to say. All I can say is that I now have a stellar double-feature from Pixar.

Word of caution for parents: The film does feature strobing lights for the villain’s hypnotism plan, including one disorienting scene where a hero is trapped in a room covered floor to ceiling in flashing lights. Please be advised for parents with children prone to epilepsy.
