06-the-incredibles-1024x768The Incredibles is about Bob Parr aka Mr. Incredible who is a superhero. After saving a man who tried to kill himself Bob is sued by the man who didn’t want to be saved. Superheroes are then  told to stop saving  people and be regular or go away. Fifteen years later Bob is working at an insurance company and living a normal life with his wife Helen (who used to be  Elastigirl, a superhero) and their three kids, Dash, Violet and a baby named Jack-Jack. After being fired from his job Bob gets a mysterious message. He puts his suit back on and travels to an island where he becomes captured. So his family must save him and together they must work together and defeat the bad guy, Syndrome. But can he and his  family win? Watch the movie and find out.

My favorite character is Dash because I like that he can run fast. My favorite scenes are when Bob visits Edna (a fashion designer), when Helen visits Edna, and the forest battle. The first two I like because they’re funny and I like the third because I like the action.

The Incredibles is an excellent movie and one of Pixar’s best. The characters are well developed and the story is good. Some scenes are witty and funny while others are fast paced and action packed. I like how the movie combines genres (comedy, action, adventure, superhero movie) but is not messy. It seems like it is still all part of the movie. The voices are good especially Edna who the director Brad Bird voices. The animation is amazing and the characters are believable. I also love how the superhero’s powers are like the characters. For instance Violet is always very shy so she can become invisible. If you want to buy the movie be sure to check out the second disc full of awesome bonus features like the excellent features “The Making of the Incredibles” and “More Making of The Incredibles.” The movie is 115 minutes long and is rated for PG for action and violence. I agree with the MPAA rating system and also rate it PG for action and violence. I give the film 5 out of 5 reels. So if you have not seen this animated classic watch it as soon as you can.
