Review: Incredibles 2
I am a geek! Phew, glad we got that out of the way.
I am also forever in love with Disney movies. I think it has a lot to do with the multiple films Disney pumped out to 90’s kids. So, naturally, the opening night of “Incredibles 2” my son and I experienced the sequel in 3D!
“Incredibles 2” picked up exactly where the previous film left off.
The main storyline of defeating the villain got pushed aside to develop the goings on at home when Mr. Incredible is faced with taking care of his children while Elastigirl is doing the superhero work. The superhero dad has to put some heroics into dealing with teenage drama, math and a baby with interdimensional powers.
Though not as action-packed, the side story keeps the family front and center, which was what helped make the first movie work so well. The family dynamic helps keep the film together when the two stories collide.
The finale wraps up nicely – what children’s movie doesn’t – but it’s a solid sequel to a beloved Pixar/ Disney film that will give the audiences what they’re looking for: a funny, thoughtful, and thrilling adventure that artistically justifies itself without invalidating what came before.
I would recommend this movie for ages nine and up. Due to some language used like “I’ll be damned” and “hell” as well as one scene that my five year old found to be intense and covered his eyes. My son through enjoyed the movie, but I do not think he is the perfect age for a movie like “Incredibles 2”.
