From the creative minds behind the TOY STORY films and RATATOUILLE comes this hilarious, action-packed animated adventure about a seemingly ordinary family with an incredible secret. Experience like never before on Blu-ray(TM) High Definition! Known to the world as superheroes Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl, Bob Parr and his wife Helen were among the world's greatest crime fighters, saving lives and battling evil on a daily basis. Fifteen years later, they have been forced to adopt civilian identities and retreat to the suburbs to live "normal" lives with their three kids, Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack. Itching to get back into action, Bob gets his chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top secret assignment. He soon discovers that it will take a super family effort to rescue the world from total destruction. Exploding with fun and exciting bonus features available only on Blu-ray, this spectacular 4-disc Combo Pack is edge-of-your-seat entertainment for everyone.
The Incredibles is not only an exciting, funny film that simultaneously spoofs and revitalizes the superhero genre, it represented a new approach to computer animation. For decades, human characters have proved the most challenging to animate. Walt Disney put his artists through a rigorous training program before they tackled the heroine in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Seventy years later, the humans felt less alive than the toys, ogres, fish, monsters, and bugs in CG films. Audiences recognize the ways humans are supposed to move, and the realism of the CG medium made even subtle flaws distracting and unsettling. Director Brad Bird and his artists developed a cartoonier way of animating humans that proved superior to the stiff, androidlike characters that had populated earlier films. That style of animation has become the industry standard: animators and audiences are happier with the results. The broader style of movement also fit the story of a family of superheroes consigned to mundane mediocrity. When Dash realizes he can run fast enough to skim over water, his glee is almost palpable, while Frozone moves with assured, athletic grace. The exaggerated gestures and expressions of designer Edna Mode play hysterically against her diminutive form. One of Pixar's best films, The Incredibles richly deserved the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. The new extras include a "Filmmakers' Roundtable," an informal and informative discussion with Bird, producer John Walker, and several key artists that feels more spontaneous than standard making-of pieces. Bird insists he didn't realize the artists were turning the villain Syndrome into a caricature of him until it was "too late." The deleted scenes are interesting, but the viewer quickly realizes they were deleted with good reason. A short, but very funny little film explains how "Gary" became the designated honoree for all staff birthday parties owing to a baker's spelling error. A thoroughly entertaining package.

After legal law suits started being launched against superheroes, the people no longer supported superheroes and the government restricts them from using their powers. Despite a great marriage and family, Bob truly struggles with letting go of what he was born to do... and his desire to be a hero again is what leads this movie into an action packed masterpiece full of morals and character growth.
The stories phenomenal and the movie remains the most quoted film in my family "Edna Mode.... and guest", "No Capes", "THAT WAS TOTALLY WICKED"! Believe me, after watching the movie, each one of these lines will make you smile. The movie is jam packed with action sequences and really shows off with its clever uses of all the different super powers. It's truly one that I still go back to you as a 22 year old and is a movie that I simply can't recommend enough for anyone who loves superheroes.
Ultimately, it's a must buy. This movie was made with love and the Collector's edition is worth every extra penny. Including deleted scenes, background stories and voice entries of 20 original supers (and they are funny and worth listening too), and most importantly JACK-JACK ATTACKS (a short that shows what was happening with the baby while the whole family was away from home).
This was the reality of our world until the Age Of Heroes ended. These great Champions of Valour kept the peace and helped all mankind. Now they are retired and living lives of conformity in suburbia. But what if one dusted off the old leotard? Would the adventures begin again? And at what price?
It's Really About Family!
Even with all the fun fights, daring rescues, and death defying stunts, The Incredibles is really all about this one family. Yes, they are all superheroes. And yes, they all have problems. But when a crisis of infinite proportions rears its ugly head of evil, they assemble together and dispense justice. Individually, they incredible. Together, they are The Incredibles!
The one hero who gets the absolute least screen time is actually my favourite. Jack Jack the baby. His powers are impressive, his skill is legend (wait for it...) dary, and his babysitter is still in therapy. When Jack Jack hits kindergarden, watch out! I hope they have their insurance up to date.
If their is one thing we all can learn from this gem of a film is the following maxim: NO CAPES!!! They get caught on things, you can trip over them, they can catch on fire, and they never look good with the rest of your outfit. A clashing outfit is a terrible thing.
The Incredibles is an adventure wrapped in a journey twisted around a mystery. You will cheer on this family of heroes as they save the day, all while having the time of their lives. The Age Of Heroes Is Back!!!!
Now, many years later, Mr. Incredible is married to Elastigirl, has three superpowered kids, and is just trying to lead a quiet domestic life while also being unable to help himself but sneak out now and then to do good deeds for people along with his buddy Frozone. When an opportunity arises from a private party for him to once again don his tights, Mr. Incredible jumps at the chance and gets to be a hero once more. The only problem is this private party is not who they seem and has a deadly agenda against not just Mr. Incredible but against all former superheroes.
The bonds of family and friendship are tested to their limits as Mr. Incredible must try and stop this threat without getting his family involved.
Except, it might already be too late for that.
Every so often a superhero movie comes along that does everything right. Great characters, great story, great presentation. In the case of animation, great voice talent, a great tale, great effects, great rendering. The Incredibles is an utterly amazing movie and is in the top ten superhero flicks of all time. In my personal top five, easy, and very close to the number one spot.
This movie hits all the high notes on every level. Superhero action? Check. Awesome heroes and an A-plus villain? Check.Read more ›
