These characters are simply awesome. Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, Violet, Dash, and Jack Jack are all back and better than ever. Seeing them again made me realize how much I've missed this lovely family in action and even inside the house. Jack Jack is just precious in this one. While the first film deepens the relationship between the mother and the kids, the sequel instead does so with the father, and it's just as satisfying. Frozone and Edna are back too!
What Incredibles 2 does that is so praiseworthy is that it maintains who these characters are so well. Even after all these years, our heroes feel like themselves. The way they think, talk, and conduct themselves feels so natural. Also, the action is toned way up from the first and I loved it.
Where the movie falters a bit for me is with the villain. The way the villain ultimately reveals him/herself and his/her plan is unfortunately just too predictable from the start. I thought the script could have gone in certain directions to make the antagonist more compelling but it did not. The villain, however, does end up being very formidable, just like Syndrome.
Overall, Incredibles 2 proves to be a solid sequel and another blast to watch for all families. The characters don't seem to miss a beat and the action is simply great for an animated movie. No, it is not as good as The Incredibles from 2004 but it does have just as much heart, which is what is most important.
Incredibles 2 gets an A-.
