Focussed storytelling and uncluttered animation in 'Incredibles 2' result in a fine sequel to the 2004 Pixar hit
Fourteen years after they charmed their way into the hearts of audiences, the Parr family is back as the Incredibles. Writer-director Brad Bird raised the bar for animation and crafted a new superhero family with Helen, Bob, Violet and Dash. In the sequel, the family is back, with the addition of baby Jack-Jack, but the world at large is anti-superhero. The drudgery of living in a motel and working as a dull insurance salesman is more than Bob can bear. And though the Parrs try to stay below the radar, sometimes the scale of villainy—like an attack by the Underminer—requires them to suit up.
