Went for a darker tone than the first but didn’t seem to commit to it. Not as much lighthearted fun as the original. But it is highly entertaining and has some good moments.
Not gonna lie, I don't think The Incredibles has aged all that well. Looking at it today, you can tell the animation is a little rough. Incredibles 2, though it has some of the same general structure, is the better-looking picture by far. I'd even say there's a discrepancy between the original characters' more basic looks and the models for anyone new. Generally, the level of detail, the textures, the crazy action, all are of a very high level. This is very much ElastiGirl's story, and if stretching has always seemed kind of a silly power in comics, it's the most badass thing ever in this movie (Fantastic Four movies, look upon this work and despair). All her scenes look great. Mr. Incredible is meanwhile mostly stuck at home taking care of the kids, a running subplot made fun and engaging by the explosion of powers from Jack-Jack and the revelation that supers might exhibit different powers until they "choose" one at some point. Really makes you want a third film to skip ahead in time to see just what happens there. Jack-Jack gains an archenemy too, so it'd be worth it. I don't think we'll have to wait 14 years for the next one, is what I'm saying.
In a nutshell, this is a very mediocre movie.
Such a shame as the original is one of my favourite cartoons.
