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.
When the newly-crowned Queen Elsa accidentally uses her power to turn things into ice to curse her home in infinite winter, her sister Anna teams up with a mountain man, his playful reindeer, and a snowman to change the weather condition.
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

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 »
I feel kind of bad about it. Maybe I should have said "Hi" or something? It's not her fault superheroes are illegal. And it's not like I don't like strong girls. I'm pretty secure, manhood-wise.

The UK cinema version was re-edited prior to release to reduce strobe effects that had caused epilepsy issues upon its US release. This is the version that's been released on all home video versions worldwide. 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.
