The Supers.When the Incredibles was released back in 2004, there wasn't many superhero films, unlike today. (There was only one successful superhero movie that year: Spider-Man 2).
So this team, the Parr family. Who are they? Bob is the head of the household, and this means he has to be strong – which he uses to protect his family. Helen is super stretchy, great for being flexible to the family's needs - and great for hoovering at home in those tricky spots! Violet is a shy teenager, who feels like she is invisible half the time and can protect herself with force fields. Dash is like any 10 year old – he likes to explore places and is very active – just as well as he can run extremely fast. Jack Jack, the baby of the family, doesn't have any powers, but you never know, a couple of months down the line…
Just your normal family dinner... with someone who is extra strong, extra bendy, extra speedy and someone who can generate force fields...
My One Big Highlight
Although I really like the Incredible family, Frozone is a standout with a great vocal performance by Samuel L. Jackson. He only appears a few times, but they are all great moments. Especially the conversation he has with his wife! I forward to seeing what he’s been up to in the Incredibles 2.
Elephant In the Room
There is very little I can fault. The only thing I was a little disappointed with was when the family are together in their new costumes for the first time. I wish we could of seen a bit more of that scene with them in action, fighting as a family - they were kicking butt!
