The first Incredibles first is an ode to superhero and spy films of a golden age in Hollywood. But rather than stopping there, The Incredibles put an all too relevant social commentary on the life and evolution of the superhero. It ended up being a delightful and clever film that was unique. There really isn’t any issue with the first film. It’s perfectly paced, the dialogue is excellent, the action is filmed well. You can see what this film has to live up to, in short it doesn’t. However, it’s definitely a worthy enough sequel that fits in and even stands out among the plethora of superhero films that dominate today’s market.
