Incredibles 2 Review – The movie isn’t actually anti-technology; it’s anti-technologist, and it contrasts the moral purity of active fighters like the Incredibles with the dubious motives of inventors, who should, in the movie’s view, be content to stay in the background and merely devise stuff to help the natural rulers, the superheroes, because, unlike superheroism, technology is morally neutral, ready to be applied indifferently for good or evil. Bob Parr. Mr. Incredible and the other members of his superhero family have been hiding in plain sight, posing as everyday people, because superheroism, owing to some unfortunate misunderstandings, is banned.

Incredibles 2 Review

Back at home, Bob is facing his own challenges: helping Dash with his maths homework, nursing Violet through the traumas of her first teen crush and containing Jack-Jack’s emerging powers, which are as scary as those showcased by the monstrous child in that notorious Twilight Zone episode It’s a Good Life. This film intelligently balances two extremes – the almost sitcom-like predicament Bob faces, and Helen’s more contemporary battle with a vile cyber terrorist. He is easily one of the funniest parts of any Pixar film.

Jack Jack is actually one of the best parts of this film. For one, Jack Jack’s new abilities are basically perfect, both in what his powers are and in how they are revealed. At first, I worried that too much of Jack Jack’s powers were revealed, but that was hardly the case.

Syndrome, a warped genius who creates a device that can rival the powers of superheroes, especially those of Mr. Incredible, a.k.a. Watching it, I felt as though I was six years old again, and that’s something that very few movies can do. As a child, no cartoon on TV was as thrilling as Scooby Doo, and no cast of characters as fun to be around as Shaggy, Scooby, Velma, Daphne and that party pooper Fred – so separating the team felt almost cruel.
