Director- Brad Bird
Cast- Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson
Rated PG: for action violence
 
I went to a late show with some friends, and their were not very many people in the theater cause it was about 10:30pm. I didnt like that because when a theater is packed, little funny moments become really funny moments, thats is something I enjoy. But that didnt matter.

The revealing of the every day life of a superhero and the identities was great in this movie and funny. I loved the chracters: Frozone, Syndrome, etc. And I also loved that we get to see what would happen if two superheros had children, also cool.

When the time comes in the movie where they superheros are banned and we get to see the everyday lives of an actual superhero trying to adapt to a normal civilized life was interesting. Especially seeing them craving to do something heroish, and seeing Mr. Increible listening to the police scanner waiting for a disaster, etc.. that is classic and genuine story telling.

Some of the best scenes in the movie are Mr. Incredible at work. His expressions, and they way he trys to help the customers find loop holes in insurance. I love it.

The comedy is great. There are a tremendous amount of situations that are just halarious, filled in with jokes that only a grown person would get. Shrek 2 is still the king in that area, but when these two are up for the Best Animated Feature Oscar come February, Its going to a be a tight race. I think Shrek 2 is better, but The Incredibles is a great film.

I highly recomend this, and if you havent seen it, go see it now, you will regret missing it. The Best Animated movies since Finding Nemo, other than Shrek 2.
 
Good Points
-Humor was pretty good
-Story was good
-Cool superheros
-The depiction of a superheros normal life
 
Bad Points
-At one point I was kinda bored
-There wasnt enough humor that was for adults (like Shrek)
-The mini movie before the actual movie. I think it was called "Boundin." A piece of horrible trash. It was plain stupid. 
 
Rating-  8.5/10
