REVIEW - Incredibles 2
Incredibles 2 It may have been 14 years since the original #TheIncredibles
, but the sequel #Incredibles2
takes off the moment the first film ended with a very brief appearance of the #Underminer
Living in a world where #superheroes
have been made illegal the future looks bright when philanthropists’ siblings hope to reintroduce supers by promoting mum, Helen aka #Elastigirl
voice by #HollyHunter
as a crime fighter to remind the world they need heroes. This leaves dad, Bob aka #MrIncredible
at home to look after their 3 children while a new villain, #Screenslaver #hypnotises
people through TV screens.
I'm sure on paper #BradBird
thought this was a very funny & clever sequel, which it is in parts, but this is mostly down to the antics of #JackJack
the baby superhero with 17 individual powers.
The story almost mirrors the original film where Bob was hired out of forced retirement to use his superhero powers & then entrapped; now it's almost exactly the same thing but with Elastigirl.
I know this film is doing incredibly well & I'm rocking the boat by daring to point out these details, but for a film that's been so highly praised I think we need to look past the gloss & hype to see the lack of originality for a film they had over 14 years to write & plan.
If you're going to see this movie, yes you are going to be entertained by the antics of Jack Jack & the exciting set pieces, just don’t expect to be blown away.
