Incredibles 2

Rated 4.0

Mr. Incredible (voiced by Craig T. Nelson), Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) and their super-children (Sarah Vowell, Huckleberry Milner) join forces with brother-and-sister telecom tycoons (Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener) in a public relations campaign to rehabilitate superheroes and thwart a new supervillain named Screenslaver, who has the power to hypnotize innocent bystanders to do his criminal bidding. It’s been 14 years since The Incredibles, and superhero movies are a lot thicker on the ground now, but writer-director Brad Bird has lost none of his wit and ingenuity; he can still show them how it’s done. It’s an odd paradox that Bird’s creations, despite a retro-’60s caricature look that’s closer to Jetsons than Justice League, feel more real than all of the Marvel and DC Comics universes put together.
