The Incredibles hero family takes on a new mission, which involves a change in family roles: Bob Parr (Mr Incredible) must manage the house while his wife Helen (Elastigirl) goes out to save the world.
The Dragon Warrior has to clash against the savage Tai Lung as China's fate hangs in the balance. However, the Dragon Warrior mantle is supposedly mistaken to be bestowed upon an obese panda who is a novice in martial arts.
While the Parr family has accepted its collective calling as superheroes, the fact remains that their special heroism is still illegal. After they are arrested after unsuccessfully trying to stop the Underminer, their future seems bleak. However, the wealthy Deavor siblings of Devtech offer new hope with a bold project to rehabilitate the public image and legal status of Supers, with Elastigirl being assigned on point to be the shining example. Now having agreed for now to stay at home to care of the kids, Mr. Incredible finds domestic life a daunting challenge, especially with baby Jack-Jack's newly emerged powers making him almost impossible to manage. However, Elastigirl soon has her own concerns dealing with the menace of a new supervillain, Screenslaver, who is wreaking havoc with his mind control abilities. Now, Elastigirl must solve the mystery of this enemy, who has malevolent designs on the world with the Parr family and friends key targets of this evil.Written by

According to Brad Bird, the Incredibles films are not to be classified or categorized as children's films just because of its PG rating or use of animation; or seen as any different than Marvel or Lucasfilm features. See more »
Winston Deavor's father is presented as a major patron of superheroes, who provided both legal and financial support (for example, funding a statue in a public park), and who personally befriended many supers, including several who ran in the same circles as Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl. So how is it that neither of the Incredibles nor Frozone have ever heard of him (or even seem to recognize the name Deavor)? See more »
The Walt Disney Pictures opening logo is in the Incredibles' 60s artwork, has the city of Metroville in the background, and has the castle display the Incredibles symbol (seen when the logo fades out). See more »
International editions (such as the one shown in the Philippines) feature different graphics that, although visually different from the North America edition, retain the universal meaning. The title of Jack-Jack's storybook was changed from "Doozles are Dozing" to multiple letter Zs. Dash's math book loses the title "New Math for Life" and is replaced by a math equation. See more »
"Incredibles 2" was probably the most anticipated movie of the year; it's hard to believe it's made 14 years since the first original. So obviously everyone was more than ready for this.
The film does come through when it comes to entertaining action and comedy, with Jack-Jack, Bob, and Edna providing most of the biggest laughs. The plot is interesting, because we've got to know what happened to the Parr family. As far as the supervillain mystery, it's acceptable and somewhat entertaining, but a bit predictable and generic. The final criticism I have is that Edna definitely deserved more screen time.
That being said, it is still an entertaining movie and not at all "painful" to watch.
In conclusion, "Incredibles 2" is funny, exciting, and really worth a viewing.
