It's a new day in Metroville, and superheroes are forced to permanently comply to their secret identities. We can all just imagine the effect of this to "The Incredibles" and to no surprise, we are right--Mr. Incredible becomes heavy-headed as the homedad cluelessly dealing with Violet's teenage problems, Dash's Math homework, and Jack-Jack discovering his incredible superpowers. Even worse, his wife Elastigirl is selected to be the forefront of DEVTECH, a private organization allegedly proposing a blueprint to reclaim the public's love for superheroes, and it makes Mr. Incredible even more insecure.

The movement of the film is smarter and faster this time, but the third act really picks up bigtime when the fast track action starts to kick in. The animation is even more impressive, slick, and gorgeous, especially with the reddish sunset sky in the background during the high-strung climax. "The Incredibles" work best when all of their superpowers are in display, and with the addition of Jack-Jack's superpowers, they become even more invincible. Add Frozone's icy display, and it superbly matches CGI packed actions films of today, and to be honest, put others to shame.
It's also really commendable the lack of emotional punch in this as if it's the film's twists as we all know that Pixar is known for its dramatics. It's pure comedy and action and I love it for it. I'd rather watch a film with harmless family jokes than offensive ones with Deadpool in it.
