It is not often that a sequel that arrives after 14 long years would actually be worth the wait. Incredibles 2 not only works as a nostalgia trip for fans of the original but also a worthy follow up. It is also a nice and quick return to form for director Brad Bird after the disastrous Tomorrowland. The sequel works both in expected and unexpected ways. The film is vibrant to look at the characters are just as warm as ever.

The movie takes us straight into the thick of things where a supervillain, hilariously named The Underminer (Pixar veteran John Ratzenberger), is busy executing a heist and The Incredibles (Craig Nelson, Holly Hunter) are busy saving the day. Enter the super-rich Steve Jobs-like Winston Deavor (Bob Odenkirk) who promises a reversal of the ban to the Incredibles but his real motives may be more than what our good-natured heroes assume to be. The dynamic between Jack-Jack and his father Bob, who is relegated to becoming a stay-at-home dad with a midlife crisis, becomes the comedic highlight.

The fact that visual effects have developed so much over the past fourteen years only adds to the immersive experience, as each character and eye-popping action is brought to life in stunning animation. Writer & director Brad Bird believed in waiting for the right story to tell, and that decision certainly pays off in more ways than one as ‘Incredibles 2’ proves to be an Incredible amount of fun! Go for it.
