I try not to make this sort of thing as a habit because I try to review movies as accurately as I possibly can, no matter what outside factors I’m faced with, however- I was so distracted by two teenagers talking next to me, ruining my experience, that I felt like that aspect didn’t allow me to judge the movie fairly.
Today I went and saw the movie again and had a MUCH better experience… So instead of going through the usual motions of describing the plot and all that, I’m going to provide a deeper analysis on what I picked up the second viewing of seeing this motion picture.
For starters, I immediately noticed that the animation quality is immensely improved from the first film… the colors are richer and more dynamic. The action in this movie is amazing, especially the scene with Elastigirl chasing a runaway train on a motorcycle. And I also love the fact that there’s a subtle time period this film takes place in, which looks like the 1960’s to me.
I’m still not a fan of Screenslaver after seeing this again, and wish The Underminer had a bigger role since I really wanted to see more of him. Speaking of villains, I’m calling this right now: if they make The Incredibles 3, I believe a grown up Jack Jack is gonna be the Villain because if his lack of control over his powers, and his potential as a threat to society could push him to the path of evil.
The movie goes through the basic superhero beats, but it keeps up the energy and charm that makes it stand out from other super hero films- and I like the fact that there’s a huge message in this film: that parenting is just as heroic as going around town in a costume, saving the day.
Taking in account all the things I noticed this time around, and the fact I had a more pleasant experience this time, I’m bumping up my rating of this film to a 8.5/10 or a B+
