(2018) (voices of Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Computer-Animated Action/Adventure: After once again being forced out of operation and their activities deemed unlawful, a family of superheroes break the rules and step into action to take on a new villain.
- Despite saving Metroville from a bank robber villain known as the Underminer, the collateral damage caused by the Parr family -- Bob, a.k.a. Mr. Incredible (voice of CRAIG T. NELSON), and his wife Helen, a.k.a. Elastigirl (voice of HOLLY HUNTER) -- has once again put superheroes in a negative light. As a result, their special program is shut down and superhero activity in general is now deemed illegal. Facing potential homelessness and the need to get a job to prevent that, they agree to an offer made by telecom tycoon Winston Deavor (voice of BOB ODENKIRK). He's a big fan of theirs and wants to change the public perception of their kind, and thus hires Elastigirl to become the positive face of superheroes.
Using tech developed by his sister, Evelyn (voice of CATHERINE KEENER), Elastigirl sets out to do just that. All of which leaves Mr. Incredible at home to tend to their three kids. There's Violet (voice of SARAH VOWELL) who's sweet on fellow teen classmate Tony (voice of MICHAEL BIRD) but doesn't realize his memories of her have been erased to protect her identity; the rambunctious Dash (voice of HUCK MILNER) who can speed around at an insanely fast speeds but needs help with his math homework; and toddler Jack-Jack (sounds by ELI FACILIE) who's starting to exhibit his own and quite varied superhero powers.
Much to the chagrin of costume designer Edna (voice of BRAD BIRD) who fashioned their earlier superhero suits, Elastigirl now wears one created by Evelyn and manages to save a commuter monorail from a devious plan concocted by a new villain known as the Screenslaver who can put others under mind control. While Mr. Incredible is off to help his wife, their friend and fellow superhero, Lucius, a.k.a. Frozone (voice of SAMUEL L. JACKSON), tries to save the kids from a variety of other superheroes who are under Screenslaver's control. But with him falling prey to that just like their parents, it's up to the kids to save the day.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Most definitely.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For action sequences and some brief mild language.
