Good news for all you super hero fans! Disney and Pixar have teamed up for the action packed animated family film, The Incredibles. This is a story about a super hero family in a government witness protection program because of a rash of lawsuits filed by people the super heroes have saved. Bob Parr is a super strong man named Mr. Incredible (voice by Craig T. Nelson) who is now an insurance claims specialist living with his super hero wife Helen otherwise-known-as Elastigirl (voice by Holly Hunter) and their 3 children. The teenage daughter Violet can turn invisible, the young son Dash has super speed and the baby Jack-Jack has no super powers yet. Of course, I was waiting for a blind super hero with super senses, strength, speed, etc and of course he goes to a few movies. Bob is bored with his demanding job and boring life so he teams up with his old super hero friend Lucius or Frozone (voice by Samual L. Jackson) to go out after work (without the consent of their wives) and play super hero again. As you can guess they cause more problems then they fix. But when all of the old super heroes begin disappearing the Incredibles are called into action to save the world from the Incredibles old enemy, Syndrome (voice by Jason Lee). Pixar does it again with outstanding computer graphics – according to both young and old kids. Along with the action, it’s funny and the characters are fluid and likable. On the downside, the plot is a little flat which makes a 2 hour cartoon hard for a blind guy to sit in with three hundred squirming kids. This film is good even though it’s a little less then incredible and I’m giving it a B rating.
This movie has been given a PG rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
