The highly anticipated sequel to Incredibles was, well, not incredible, but pretty good. There was a lot to love, a few things to question, and a few things that will disappoint. I honestly don’t remember the first film, so I went into this with a clean slate, although I wasn’t completely sold on the hype of Jack Jack having powers. Now having said that, the absolute best part of this really bloated run time is the fight sequence between Jack Jack and a raccoon. I could watch that few minutes over and over, it was that epic. The rest of the story is really just meh. If you are intelligent you’ll figure out who the bad guy right off the bat and after the focus shifts to him, they totally about the original bad guy the movie starts out with. Sadly we can all see how the story will play out with the Incredibles getting used and set up to destroy everything they cared about. When the movie focuses on Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) raising Violet (Sarah Vowell) and Dash (Huck Milner) it wins, when it is half way across the globe with Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) fighting crime the same can’t be said. Whether you are an adult or a little kid, the animation is out of this world, much like these characters. You’ll laugh and be entertained as the characters you once loved are back and better than ever. Pixar has been hit and miss with sequels and this one has the potential to ride that fine line once again. 7/10
