Bird has created the unprecedented film that is not just a grand feature-length cartoon but a grand feature, period, a piece of animation that's involving across a spectrum of comedy, action, even drama.

Entertainment Weekly
Dazzlingly beautiful, funny, and meaningful.

Wall Street Journal
A work of huge, if unobtrusive, ambition -- a vision of modern life, appropriate for sophisticated adults as well as for kids, that is both satirical and, of all things, inspirational. It's a great film about the possibility of greatness.

Philadelphia Inquirer
A movie with the sweet soul of "Toy Story" and the boisterous spirit of "Spy Kids."

Bird has crafted a film -- one of the year's best -- that doesn't ring cartoonish, it rings true.

New York Daily News
Clever, buoyant and surprisingly human.

San Francisco Chronicle
The visual and emotional hues are darker [than previous Pixar films], and the focus rests more on middle age than coming of age. The adventures of a family of superheroes are likely to thrill and amuse children, but the film's more grown-up themes might go over their heads.
75
One of the year's most clever and visually arresting computer-animated films, enlivened by a well-developed and credible cast of characters who just happen to be superheroes.
