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.
In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
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

The ending credits begin the same way visually as they did in The Incredibles (2004), with shots of the family members doing various things, before changing to reflect the events of the second movie instead of the first. The end credits include the "original" versions of the hero themes that the heroes sing along with Winston Deavor when they meet him. See more »

The Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios opening logos are shaded red, black and yellow, the uniform colors of the Incredibles. 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 »
We had low expectations going in. 99% of the time, Hollywood sequels are lazy productions that are made to cash in on the original's good will. Twenty minutes in, we happily realized that the writer/director Brad Bird actually put as much effort into this movie as he did in the original Incredibles.
To echo every other reviewer- it was worth waiting 14 years. I will happily wait another 14 if the third installment is up to the caliber of #2.
The animation was top notch and the script is surprisingly deep. Superheros are struggling to regain their lawful status in society, Violet is going through teenage dating pains. Family finances and stay at home parenting are heavy themes on top of the standard villain vs. hero struggle. Still, it manages to be laugh out loud funny all the way through. Jack Jack's ability reveals are easily the funniest scenes in the movie, and we love the Poltergeist Easter egg. Wonder if Craig T Nelson had anything to do with it?
Yes, the main villain is kind of weak and predictable, but that only took one star off. The story was kind of long, as in the editor could have cut 10 minutes without losing much.
Like the original, we will watch it again and again when it comes out on disc.
