INCREDIBLES 2

Incredibles 2 is the sequel to The Incredibles.  You know what this is…and I saw it.

THE GOOD

There is a lot of fun action in the movie, although it can get a little repetitive.  There are three scenes where heroes are trying to stop runaway vehicles.

The best action scene was when the kids are fighting off the other supers.  That sequence showcases a great use of powers by all involved and it probably has the most emotional impact of all the action scenes.

Maybe the best scene in the whole thing was Jack-Jack vs. the raccoon.  That was an amazing sequence.

THE BAD

Honestly, it’s kind of boring.  There’s not as much of an emotional connection between the family in this movie.

The film also suffers from some pacing issues.  There are long stretches of the movie that just kind of meander around without a ton of drive.  It suffers from comparisons to the first movie, but more than that it just isn’t brisk enough.

The villain’s motivation isn’t entirely fleshed out.  I mean, it’s there, but it’s all very surface and doesn’t hold the same depth or gravity as Syndrome.

THE UGLY

There were a few moments (not many, but a few) where I thought the animation was less than stellar.  Also, as has been reported on social media, there are a couple scenes of intense strobing lights that could trigger a seizure in someone with photosensitive disorders.

This isn’t really a fault of the movie, per se, but an oversight on the part of the filmmakers.  They have certainly done their due diligence and placed warnings now.

FINAL THOUGHTS

In the end, my opinion is the most boring one you can hold.  It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad.  I thought the movie was fine.  If you are chomping at the bit to see it, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the experience in the theater.  If you want to wait for the BluRay and streaming, you won’t be missing out.

It’s a solidly average movie.

FINAL VERDICT: 3.5/5

 

P.S.

If you’d like to see a review I did with my eight-year-old son on the movie that goes a little more in-depth than this does, then check out my YouTube channel:
