The Incredibles Review



Sorry, it's just me again this time, but don't worry Rachel will be back.
The next in the Pixar line up is The Incredibles

Released in 2004, Pixar was now releasing a film every year.
Directed by Brad Bird
Costing $92M
Grossing $631M
115 minutes long
Winner of the Best Animated Feature and Best Sound Editing Academy Awards

A super hero film, about a family of super heros who can save the world. What more could you want? Dad protects everyone; Mum stretches everywhich way for her family; teenager daughter can make herself invisible and protected and what more could a boy want than to run around like crazy. sounds like a normal family to us, aren't we all super heroes?

And that about sums it up, the film works because you can easily see your own family in The Incredible family when they are just as 'ordinary' family. You can empathise and very much put yourself in their shoes. But then you can see what you could be when they again decide to save the world; what a fab time that would be.

I don't want to give the plot away, but suffice to say it's a true superhero film in all respects. Watch it and see your own super powers.

Thanks for stopping by and following my blog!

This is my son's favorite movie. His dvd of it got broken and he cried for it every night for 3 weeks until we bought him a new one. I have to admit that I enjoy watching this one too.
