Storyline

In a dark room, Agent Rick Dicker interrogates Kari, a young girl with braces. He asks what happened. Kari explains that she was babysitting for an infant, Jack-Jack, who seems able to levitate, float, pass through walls, catch fire, and cause havoc. Kari stays nimble but barely holds on until an odd young man with orange hair and an "S" on his shirt rings the bell. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Jack Jack Attack
26 August 2012 | by twood227See all my reviews

Jack-Jack Attack is an other brilliant short film by Pixar. It is a follow on from the award win film "The Incredibles", and just as good as the full film. The story line is excellent, with an unexpected ending. It follows the story of a young girl, who is being investigated, who was set the task of babysitting the baby of the Incredibles family. The baby has shown no signs of superpowers before this time, unlike his parents and siblings. The baby showed no signs of super powers when the mother checks in, but the phone goes mysteriously dead when the problems start to happen. The boy develops his powers when the girl is trying to educate him. He flies through walls, disappears and catches on fire. This is enough to drive the girl insane, and when so mysterious guy turns up at the door she imminently thinks he is a replacement, and gives the baby straight to him. The short is targeted at the same audience at the main film, little children, but is interesting and well done enough for adults to be interested. The animation of the short is very well done, almost lifelike, and captivates you.

In the end it is just another amazing animation by Pixar. Brilliant story line and captivating animation.
