The other day I watched The Incredibles for the first time in a long time; I had forgotten what a master piece this movie is.
The Incredibles tells the story of a family of superheroes who are trying to be normal after society scolds them for being super. The father of the family, Bob Parr (AKA Mr. Incredible), is addicted to undercover saving. His wife, Helen (AKA Elastigirl) has her hands full with their three children Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack. When Mr Incredible, tempted by the chance to relive his glory days, finds himself in a situation that is too much for him to handle alone, the family comes together and learns that they are more than the sum of their parts.
My favorite part of the movie pertaining to the animation is the detail they put into some of the action scenes. Everything is moving quickly and it feels like the action sequences in this movie could stand up to those in any live-action movie.
The plot is completely family-centered and teaches an awesome lesson about being special. The main villain, Syndrome, has one fantastic line (which he technically shares with Dash), where he says, "And when everyone is special, no one will be." There are so many funny moments, including Syndrome's mention of villains monologuing, Edna's capes, Mr. craziness, and what may be the most famous scene from the movie: Frozone and his wife.
The Incredibles is a must-see for anyone who loves Disney and/or Superhero flicks and/or touching family movies. It's never too early to teach someone that they have the chance to be incredible.
