The Incredibles (2004)

Many critics will take the easy way out in reviewing this film by saying “the film lives up to its name”. I think I’ve just about had enough of that kind of writing. You know what I’m talking about- some movies are just asking for it, though. In any case, Pixar’s ‘The Incredibles’ is great, fun, edge-to-edge, start-to-finish, chock-full of things to look at and admire. But we’ve come to expect so much of Pixar that none of this is a surprise. The easiest way to review this is- better than ‘Bug’s Life’, ‘Toy Story’; as good as ‘Monster’s Inc.’ but not as good as ‘Finding Nemo’ and ‘Toy Story 2’. Does that help? As a side note, however- the director Brad Bird is a genius and if you’ve missed his ‘Iron Giant’ go see it now!
