Movie Summary

Director:
Brad Bird
Released:
2004
Rating:
PG

The Incredibles is the 2004 animated action adventure superhero phenomenon from the powerhouse Pixar Films (Toy Story, Up, A Bug's Life, Wall-E) and writer-director Brad Bird (The Iron Giant, The Simpsons). With the on-set of numerous law suits, which are costing the Government millions, super-heroes are forced to go into hiding under the witness protection program. Forced to lead mundane, ordinary lives and go under societies radar; one of these heroes turned civilians is Bob Par (aka Mr. Incredible aka voice of Craig T. Nelson) and his wife Helen (aka Elastigirl aka voice of Holly Hunter). But life is difficult for the Par family; especially with their three confused children. Especially for Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and little brother Dash (Spencer Fox) who have grown up believing their super-human powers are a flaw, not an asset. On-top of family crises, Bob isn't happy. He misses the 'old days' and tries to cling to his past by keeping in touch with his old friend Frozone (aka Lucius Best aka voice of Samuel L. Jackson) and listening to police radios for the 'low down'. So when Bob is approached by Mirage (Elizabeth Pe'a) who offers him a chance to step back into the limelight, he jumps. But the tests Bob is put through; like defeating a ball robot; are really apart of Mirage's evil boss Syndrome's (Jason Lee) attempt to wipe-out superheroes until he is the only one left. Now it is a matter of Helen and her children working together to save their Incredible father and the world.

    Pixar meet again!



    The Incredibles is without a doubt one of the greatest CGI, Pixar films you'll ever come across. It has some of the greatest film characters of all time, some extremely hilarious moments and some epic fighting. The voice acting was superb, but for me the scene stealer was Samuel L Jackson as Frozone.



    Everything about this film is great; the story, the characters EVERYTHING! The animations are superb and overall one of my favorite films of all time!moreless
