Incredibles 2 Movie Review
RUNNING TIME: 118 minutes
I had the chance to take in an advanced screening of the movie earlier this week with some of our iFamilyKC winners and their families (Missed out on the giveaway? Be sure that you’re on our eNews list to get in on future opportunities.)
It’s every bit as wonderful as you’re expecting it to be.
The Storyline: Keeps You Engaged
The movie picks up shortly after the last one left off and starts out with a bang as Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and their crime-fighting children work together in an attempt to stop an underground bank robber from destroying the city. Unfortunately, circumstances are not in their favor and chaos ensues.
The local government, already opposed to superheroes in general, shuts down the Incredibles and they’re forced to make an attempt at life in the real world.
Unsure of where they’ll land…
Elastigirl receives an offer she simply can’t refuse when a wealthy fan offers to help change the image of superheroes in the eyes of the law. And so Helen (Elastigirl) goes back to work leaving Bob (Mr. Incredible) to stay at home with the kids (Violet, Dash, and Jack Jack). Much of the middle part of the film is dedicated to their transition into a new lifestyle with Helen serving as the breadwinner and Bob making it work in his new role at home full time. It’s a story that adults can relate to while children enjoy the silly and exciting parts of the film in between.
Without giving it away, all is not as it seems and the superhero family ultimately ends up needing to rely on each other to get out of a sticky situation and save the day. The message is equally as important for kids as it is for grownups, a story that tells us to work together as a team in order to see a positive outcome.
Go See It!
This film is exciting and enjoyable, a definite summer must see for the whole family. I highly recommend taking the kids out. As a fan of the first film, I really appreciated how well the second one was done and my seven year old enjoyed it even more.
