We distinctly remember when we watched the first part of The Incredibles and how it was a piece of art produced by Pixar Animation Studios. The movie was brilliant in so many ways including storyline, action, comedy, animations and every other aspect one can think of except that the joy was cut short when The Underminer comes to attack the city and our favorite family of superheroes get ready to fight it. We remember how at the end of the movie everyone in the cinema was left wanting for more but somehow excited that there will be another part because the ending was at a cliffhanger, right?
The anticipation of second part kept growing until there was no news about the launch for next couple of years. The hope dwindled and we eventually made peace with the fact that paragon of animated action movies is not coming back to screen. Life has a funny way of proving you wrong when almost after 13 years we started hearing about the second part of this work of art and voila! 14 years later, here it is. The excitement and anticipation were back and we got the ticket for the movie at our earliest convenience.
Coming back to the original content; the second part, The Incredibles 2, is every bit of fantastic as its prequel. It started right off where the first part was left. The Underminer invading city of superheroes’ home. As expected, the entire family gets straight to it with an unexpected turn of events but with the same enthusiasm, bickering while fighting and the comedy. The result was a chaos spread throughout the city in an attempt to stop The Underminer which they actually failed to do that brought a ban to superheroes all over the country.
Without further spoilers of the movie, we just want to let you know that Pixar lived up to its name by giving us arguably more than what we have been waiting for. Each and every character has been given enough screen time based on their roles. Nothing seemed out of place and everything that happened in the movie was somehow linked to the previous movie or something that happened earlier in the movie.

As usual, the comedy inclusive action-packed animation was captivating and thrilling. The movie is so entertaining that age limit cannot be applied to it. It is indeed a family movie for children and adults alike. The visuals were brilliant and the transformation of the baby incredible Jack-Jack was fun to watch as his part in the movie was greatly impactful even though seemed arbitrary which is alright since he is a baby after all.
The best part of the movie for us was how the kids were focused as superheroes. Frozone, as usual, was there to help the kids and The Incredible family. It definitely did not disappoint even after the time it took to make a comeback.
