So after a fourteen year wait, which the makers of this movie felt we needed to be reminded off (there’s a blurb before the movie starts) we have a sequel to the Incredibals movie. We are told, directly by the actors, that it was worth the wait.
I beg to differ. Some movies and stories are best left as stand alone films, despite their popularity.
The movie basically has two plots. The mom going back to work and the dad trying to contend with the kids. The positive thing I will say is that the dad story line is highly entertaining and something many will relate to as parents. They were able to do some very original story lines with the multi-skilled baby. The mom’s story tho… very predictable. And sadly, hers contains the main plot, the new villain and need for the superheroes to emerge from the shadows.
If you have kids, sure, take them, they’ll love it just because it has their favorite characters again. As an adult with no kids, I felt I wasted my time.
