The Incredibles is... Incredible!

Caught The Incredibles with The Girl last night (Saturday, Nov. 6). This is another Pixar production, all animated. It does feature the voices of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jason Lee.

On a side note, here's my review of Boundin', a Pixar short that precedes The Incredibles.

IMDB Plot Summary:
Mr. Incredible is a superhero; or he used to be, until a surge of lawsuits against superheroes submitted by the people they've saved forced the government to hide them in witness protection programs so they could lead normal, anonymous lives. Now known exclusively by his secret identity, Bob Parr, he lives with his wife Helen, formerly Elastigirl, and their three children Violet, Dash, and Jack Jack. He works as an insurance claims specialist, and he's fed up with his pushy boss and his immoral profession, but his wife's worked too hard to build a normal life for her family to abide his nostalia for heroism. When Mr. Incredible's offered the chance to play the role of hero again by a mysterious informant, he jumps at the opportunity, but when it turns out to be a trap set by an old nemesis he had a hand in corrupting, the whole family must reveal themselves to save Mr. Incredible and countless innocents.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie! It was funny, amusing, entertaining, interesting. Man, I just had a good time! As should be apparent from the previews and trailers, it's a comedy/action movie and definitely succeeds on both fronts. The graphics are amazing! The whole picture looks terrific! There's really not much more I can say other than if you think you might like it (i.e. you like superheroes, superhero movies and/or animated movies), go check it out because chances are you'll end up really liking it!

ALAN'S MOVIE RATING: DVD-Worthy if you like superhero movies and/or animated flicks.
