For most of Incredibles 2, it is Elastigirl who is out doing all the superhero work and dealing with new villain Screenslaver, while Mr. Incredible is at home taking care of the Incredible children.
As far as the superhero action sequences go, I definitely enjoyed Elastigirl’s rather thrilling second solo pursuit of Screenslaver. Overall though, my favourite scenes in Incredibles 2 are not the moments when members of the Incredible family are in their trademark superhero attire facing off with villains.
The biggest highlights for me are the scenes with all or most of the Incredible family together at home. I particularly enjoyed the humour and universal family dynamic during these moments. I also especially adored every scene that featured baby Jack Jack, ‘the most adorable symbol of animated cuteness,’ since the Minions (2015) first became a big deal. I can definitely sense that you agree. Yes, I know you do.
Watch Incredibles 2 because it’s good. Enjoy all the undeniable cuteness and cleverness of the creation that is Jack Jack. Definitely make time for the fun that the scenes with Jack Jack at Edna Mode’s residence will deliver.
Written/directed by Brad Bird; Incredibles 2 stars Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Catherine Keener and Samuel L. Jackson.
