Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2

Worth the 14 year wait. It may have a lot of Comic tropes in it, but they were done exceedingly well.

The sequel focuses on Elastigirl in a similar manner as the first focused on Mr. Incredible. Of course, it takes the family coming together to solve the crisis at hand. :)

The movie starts out with the Underminer incident that began at the end of the first movie. The fallout from this causes the government program overseeing former Supers to be closed down. A pair of siblings come in to offer a way for Supers to be made legal again. The brother runs their fathers company while the sister invents tech for it. They sponsor Elastigirl with a new bike and suit (Edna was really not a fan) for her to fight crime to help get support for Supers back.

The scene where they tell Elastigirl, Mr. Incredible and Frozone why they chose her to be the inital face of the movement was perfect. The cost-analysis of all the property damage that occurred during a Mr. Incredible incident was the icing on the cake.

While Elastigirl is fighting crime, we see Mr. Incredible being the stay at home parent. Taking care of the baby. Helping with Math homework. “Helping” with relationship problems.

The Big Bad’s major plan to deal with Supers comes along and it takes all of the Incredibles, Frozone, and some new Supers to fight it.

Warning for the short preceding this movie, Bao. You will need tissues.
