The Incredibles REVIEW – The Incredibles movie
The Incredibles REVIEW: Yes, I’ve seen this story a million times. I’m also not a very big fan of Disney and Pixar together, but this time they got me hooked. After fearing to rent this, many of my friends convinced me that I should take a look at it. So, I did and feel in love with it.
The effects, I feel like today, there are way too many fancy computer effect movies. But it works with “The Incredibles” because that’s half the humor with it. There are some very reconizable voices in there that you know very well.
Is this just a kid’s movie? No, it does contain some adult humor. I can see with parents taking their kids to the theater, it has to be somewhat enjoyable to adults too. So as a family or whether you have children or little relatives, I would recommend this movie for you guys. It is very enjoyable and fun to watch.
The Incredibles REVIEW – The Incredibles movie by ThePedofinderGeneral: Amazing! Brilliant! Fabulous! Wonderful! Astonishing! I’m not avoiding using a certain word!
The Incredibles is a great film, and probably my favourite Pixar picture (Toy Story is the best, but that’s different to favourite). It takes a while to properly get into the action, but when it does, it delivers it in spades.
And that’s exactly it. I would actually call The Incredibles an animated action film, because to be honest, I don’t think there was enough comedy to call it an animated action comedy film. There are quite a few funny moments, but the gags don’t come as fast as Finding Nemo or Toy Story.
That being said, it does have truly amazing action set-pieces, brilliant voice acting, a fabulous script, wonderful characters and the animation is simply…..well….incredible.
The music is definitely a stand-out. It actually made me smile, with it’s jazzy tones and James Bond type scores.
One of the greatest things about The Incredibles is that it’s not a kiddies film; it’s completely different to all the other Pixar films. They bring out tommy guns in the second scene, for crying out loud! If you want to see a more adult animated film, then go see The Incredibles, and enjoy every minute. But I wouldn’t bring someone younger than 4 maybe, because it isn’t really aimed at them, and they probably would find it quite scary.
This is a great film, one of the best of 2004 in my opinion. If it just had a slightly higher gag rate, than this would be an absolutely perfect picture.
The Incredibles REVIEW – The Incredibles movie by badidosh: Incredible in every sense of it!
“The Incredibles” is by far and away the most mature and engaging Pixar film to date.
This movie is nothing less than a display of sheer brilliance to an utmost prestigious level that proves the genius in director Brad Bird (“The Iron Giant”). From the perfectly created characters to the witty and humorous dialog involved, “The Incredibles” is the ideal film for true fans of the animation and/or comic book genre. It doesn’t fail to provide viewers of with a fragment of every genre; incredible animation, action, and even a bit of drama.
However, the aspect most evident in “The Incredibles” that was frequently credited for the success of its predecessors was the emotional aspect. The thesis on midlife crossroads on personal and professional dilemmas was well presented.
Bob Parr (Craig T. Nelson) seems an average guy who works in an insurance agency, and lives a “normal” mediocre life with his wife Helen and three kids: Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack. But there’s more to it, actually. Bob used to be Mr. Incredible, and Helen was Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), two of the world’s greatest crime fighters until a series of lawsuits have forced superheroes to adopt civilian identities. But when Bob receives a mysterious call that has him for a top secret assignment, he sees this as an opportunity to be Mr. Incredible again. He accepts the mission but soon discovers that it is a trap of a nemesis from way back, and the whole family eventually has to to join him to fight evil and save the world.
What we have here is something that unfortunately becoming quite a rare thing nowadays: an example of a truly brilliant animation. As I have said, not only does it have some of the most phenomenal computer graphics and action sequences ever committed to film, but like all the best movies it also has the heart to support the movie between the adrenaline-pumping moments.
The main reason for this is the great characterization. “The Incredibles” may contain a little too much of violence that may be better suited for older children than the younger ones. Yet one cannot easily discount the family themes and comic episodes, with characters like superhero-costume designer Edna (voiced by Bird) and Bob’s friend Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson) providing ample support.
Another is that the film, as is with previous Pixar films, is effective in the use of computer generated images (CGI) which is a major plus for moviegoers. The details in which the animators for the film present are awe-inspiring and breathtaking. The music also pasted itself impeccably with the atmosphere Bird has created for the film. Very retro.
It is a demonstration of precision and excellence, created by the brilliance and meticulous mannerisms of the director. It goes beyond an animated movie and is without a doubt one of the best animations of all time. It is truly incredible to see a film like this.
The Incredibles REVIEW – The Incredibles movie by Max_cinefilo89badidosh: The greatest adventure of 2004!
The Incredibles is further proof Pixar focuses more on story and characters rather than in-jokes and celebrity voices, as in Dreamworks’features (not that there’s anything wrong with that, just look at Shrek 1 AND 2). Okay, there are quite a lot of pop-culture references in this film, because of the story, but that doesn’t stop The Incredibles from being an… incredible movie.
For the first time in a Pixar film, the main characters are human: Bob Parr (Craig T. Nelson) used to be a great superhero, Mr.Incredible, until such activities became illegal (fans of Alan Moore may find that concept familiar). Now he has to deal with a boring job and his family: wife Helen (Holly Hunter), aka Elastigirl, and three kids, Dash (who’s called Flash in the Italian version, guess why), Violet(who’s got the same powers as Marvel’s Invisible Woman) and baby Jack-Jack, who so far seems to be “normal”. He’s desperate to return to the old glorious days, not realizing his family is the “greatest adventure ever”. And their help will be needed when a new threat shows up…
The film’s best element is the script, which teaches a valuable lesson (family matters more than anything) while providing some jaw-dropping action scenes (no wonder the movie got a PG rating) and various references to the genre (almost every existing superhero is poked at, as well as James Bond and Indiana Jones). The other awesome thing is of course the characters: the titular family is basically the “super” version of the Simpsons (Bob getting home from work is pure Homer), and two supporting characters deserve a special mention. One is Frozone, Mr.Incredible’s buddy, the only one in the movie who’s voiced by a real star (Samuel L. Jackson, who’s a gas as usual). The most important one, though, is Edna Mode, who makes the supers’ outfits. Wonderful and hilarious, she’s one of the best animated characters in years (ironically enough, she’s voiced by a man, the movie’s writer/director, Brad Bird).
For those who really love movies, The Incredibles is a must-see in the animated feature category. Don’t miss it!
The Incredibles REVIEW – The Incredibles movie by filmluvr-1: The most fun I’ve had at the movies all year
I cannot say enough about the cleverness of the writing and the animation of this film. Even the animated acting was better than many live action films. The story, about what happens to a group of superheros when the public turns against them and they are forced to go underground and be normal, and then a tricked back into action, is so well thought out that hardly a moment or a shot passes in which there is not some small brilliant detail that catches you off guard and amuses. Even the music is funny. When Mr. Incredible is creeping around the island fortress of the evil Sundrome the music is strikingly suggestive of the kind of tense themes John Barry would write for James Bond’s infiltration of the island fortress in YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE and many others. The Incredibles is particularly striking, I think, for those of us who grew up reading comic books regularly because it gives answers to fun questions like, where does a superhero go when he needs a new costume? I cannot recommend it enough for both kids and adults.
After the success of The Incredibles, “Disney-Pixar has launched the first teaser for” The Incredibles 2 ” – Watch The Incredibles 2 online free.
