The Incredibles is a 2004 American computer-animated superhero film written and directed by Brad Bird and produced by Pixar Animation Studios. It stars the voices of Craig T Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Spencer Fox, Jason Lee, and Samuel L Jackson. The movie is set in an alternative version of the 1960’s, the film follows the Parrs, a family of superheroes who have to hide their powers according to a government policy. Due to this they attempt to live a quiet suburban life. Mr Incredible however, has a desire to help people which draws the entire family into a battle with a vengeful fan turned foe and his killer robot. The film performed well at the box office, grossing $633 million worldwide during its original theatrical run. The movie won two Academy Awards and the Annie Award for Best Animated Feature. The sequel, Incredibles 2 was released June 15, 2018. There is a good amount of comedy to keep you entertained throughout the whole movie and it is also full of great references and observations about superhero movies. The characters are also very easy to identify with and you grow to care about them a lot. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who enjoys animated superhero movies.

For the most part - I'd say that "The Incredibles" was a pretty entertaining, action-packed cartoon from Pixar Studios. This superhero story contained lots of witty humor and fast-paced activity that kept me interested most of the time.

Generally speaking - I liked all of the characters except for Elasti-Girl who was such a nag all of the time.

This CG-animated fantasy/adventure story was produced on a $92 million budget.

Fun, stylish superhero comedy with lots of inspiration from several sources of the 1960s, all the way to the architecture. Savvy viewers will pick up on the mulititude of period superhero comics (most obviously Stan Lee/Jack Kirby's Fantastic Four title) and James Bond-isms throughout.

To be truthful - I just couldn't stand The Incredibles as the Parrs, a regular family unit. Like, talk about being totally dysfunctional to the max. You'd honestly think that a whole family of "supers" would, at least, have it together to some degree when it came to happiness and harmony.

In particular - It was Helen Parr who grated on my nerves, big-time. She seemed to be forever coming down on everyone for even the slightest, most petty thing imaginable. And this was even while she was Elasti-Girl. She just never seemed to let up on her bull.

All-in-all - I'd say that The Incredibles (sans Helen Parr) was a very sharp-witted comedy that quickly morphed into a really satisfying comic-book-style action film. This animated movie, for the young and old, was definitely well-worth a view.

this is a battle between summerheros and the society...according to society the "supers"are just trouble makers... now the superheros are trying to save their reputation by saving the city from a robot

SAPPHIREBEAR15 Jun 26, 2012

"Supers"–humans gifted with superpowers–were once seen as heroes, but collateral damage from their various good deeds led the government to create a "Supers Relocation Program", forcing the Supers to fit in among the civilians and not use their superpowers. Bob and Helen Parr, who are Supers, have married and raised three children, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack, in the suburbs of Metroville; Violet and Dash have innate superpowers, but the toddler Jack-Jack has yet to show any. Bob, stuck in a white-collar job at an insurance agency, reminisces of his former days as Mr. Incredible, and sneaks out on Wednesday nights with his Super friend, Lucius Best (a.k.a. Frozone), to fight street crime.
