    After creating the last great traditionally animated film of the 20th century, The Iron Giant, filmmaker Brad Bird joined top-drawer studio Pixar to create this exciting, completely entertaining computer-animated film. Bird gives us a family of "supers," a brood of five with special powers desperately trying to fit in with the 9-to-5 suburban lifestyle. Of course, in a more innocent world, Bob and Helen Parr were superheroes, Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl. But blasted lawsuits and public disapproval forced them and other supers to go incognito, making it even tougher for their school-age kids, the shy Violet and the aptly named Dash. When a stranger named Mirage (voiced by Elizabeth Pena) secretly recruits Bob for a potential mission, the old glory days spin in his head, even if his body is a bit too plump for his old super suit.

    Bird has his cake and eats it, too. He and the Pixar wizards send up superhero and James Bond movies while delivering a thrilling, supercool action movie that rivals Spider-Man 2 for 2004's best onscreen thrills. While it's just as funny as the previous Pixar films, The Incredibles has a far wider-ranging emotional palette (it's Pixar's first PG film). Bird takes several jabs, including some juicy commentary on domestic life ("It's not graduation, he's moving from the fourth to fifth grade!").

    The animated Parrs look and act a bit like the actors portraying them, Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter. Samuel L. Jackson and Jason Lee also have a grand old time as, respectively, superhero Frozone and bad guy Syndrome. Nearly stealing the show is Bird himself, voicing the eccentric designer of superhero outfits ("No capes!"), Edna Mode.

    Nominated for four Oscars, The Incredibles won for Best Animated Film and, in an unprecedented win for non-live-action films, Sound Editing.

    The Presentation
    This two-disc set is (shall we say it?), incredible. The digital-to-digital transfer pops off the screen and the 5.1 Dolby sound will knock the socks off most systems. But like any superhero, it has an Achilles heel. This marks the first Pixar release that doesn't include both the widescreen and full-screen versions in the same DVD set, which was a great bargaining chip for those cinephiles who still want a full-frame presentation for other family members. With a 2.39:1 widescreen ratio (that's big black bars, folks, à la Dr. Zhivago), a few more viewers may decide to go with the full-frame presentation. Fortunately, Pixar reformats their full-frame presentation so the action remains in frame.

    The Extras
    The most-repeated segments will be the two animated shorts. Newly created for this DVD is the hilarious "Jack-Jack Attack," filling the gap in the film during which the Parr baby is left with the talkative babysitter, Kari. "Boundin'," which played in front of the film theatrically, was created by Pixar character designer Bud Luckey. This easygoing take on a dancing sheep gets better with multiple viewings (be sure to watch the featurette on the short).

    Brad Bird still sounds like a bit of an outsider in his commentary track, recorded before the movie opened. Pixar captain John Lasseter brought him in to shake things up, to make sure the wildly successful studio would not get complacent. And while Bird is certainly likable, he does not exude Lasseter's teddy-bear persona. As one animator states, "He's like strong coffee; I happen to like strong coffee." Besides a resilient stance to be the best, Bird threw in an amazing number of challenges, most of which go unnoticed unless you delve into the 70 minutes of making-of features plus two commentary tracks (Bird with producer John Walker, the other from a dozen animators). We hear about the numerous sets, why you go to "the Spaniards" if you're dealing with animation physics, costume problems (there's a reason why previous Pixar films dealt with single- or uncostumed characters), and horror stories about all that animated hair. Bird's commentary throws out too many names of the! animators even after he warns himself not to do so, but it's a lively enough time. The animator commentary is of greatest interest to those interested in the occupation.

    There is a 30-minute segment on deleted scenes with temporary vocals and crude drawings, including a new opening (thankfully dropped). The "secret files" contain a "lost" animated short from the superheroes' glory days. This fake cartoon (Frozone and Mr. Incredible are teamed with a pink bunny) wears thin, but play it with the commentary track by the two superheroes and it's another sharp comedy sketch. There are also NSA "files" on the other superheroes alluded to in the film with dossiers and curiously fun sound bits. "Vowellet" is the only footage about the well-known cast (there aren't even any obligatory shots of the cast recording their lines). Author/cast member Sarah Vowell (NPR's This American Life) talks about her first foray into movie voice-overs--daughter Violet--and the unlikelihood of her being a superhero. The feature is unlike anything we've seen on a Disney or Pixar DVD extra, but who else would consider Abe Lincoln an action figure? --Doug Thomas

    I expected the Incredibles to be impressive on the visual side of things. I was not disappointed in those respects. I was even more suprised that an animated mainstream film from Disney was as knowing, well writen and even original as any live action film.
    I thought that the take on superhero themes is refreshing. The Incredibles draws from the superhero comics heritage from the 60's to the cynicism of postmodernist sentiments from the Simpsons. Superheroes have been made to go into civilian life and refrain from any heroic activity because of the cost of lawsuits to the economy made by ungrateful rescued people. Mr Incredible cant help helping good citizens by approving their insurance claims.
    The parts about the new lives of the Parr family is an welcomed change of focus and pace in my opinnion. It all makes the action later more dynamic. But watching a cgi family bicker about how boring thier lives are is strangely fascinating because it is so believable, without trying to copy realife.
    The action scenes are varied and clever. There's enough crash and bang, that stand up to the likes of Jurrasic Park and Starwars. More importantly is the capital the film makes from the abilites of Elastimum, who's more versatile than a survival expert with a bundle of sticks, her performances 'stretch' the possibilites of what could be acheived in live action evrn with CGI.
    The art and design of big animated films is often passed of as being 'great graphics'. As an animation student there is a true appreciation of the difficulties of working in the medium. The commentaries make no few words about this point. Most people should go away with the unique quality and detail that the Incredibles has in its presentation. The characters have a claymation, Wallace and Gromit quality to them.

    Just received this in the post this morning after pre ordering. Major disappointment is the only way i can explain how i feel about this disc and with Disney for their treatment of their uk customers. Ok the disc only cost £12, and for that you do get an excellent picture and sound experience, but the fact that 99% of the extra features from the original DVD are now missing and most of the new features that i understand are in the American version of the disc have not been included is a real shame. Why should i have to keep changing between the standard definition DVD edition of the film and the high def on the blu-ray? For all those people that say i should have imported the 4 disc set from the US, why should i? i would have happily have paid more money for the extra features in hi-def, but Disney in their all powerful, all knowing dictatorship of a company decided to remove my right to choose. In future i will not pre-order any discs from Disney or maybe just stick to buying their films on DVD as you seem to get better value for money.

    ...let down by a cut-and-paste effort with the special features. Reading through what's available on the 4-disc US release (2 blu/1 DVD/1 digital copy) we're missing 3 discs of stuff. Digital copies don't matter that much, nor do DVD versions, but to be missing the 2nd blu-ray smacks of utter contempt to UK customers.

    Yes, the UK version may well have SOME of the US bonus features. But not all of them. Nor does it port over any of the classic DVD features - yet EVERY Disney release previously does! What gives?

    To be short-changed to such an extent is a real disappointment, saved only by the film and its excellent HD presentation. Boo hiss boo, Disney. Boo hiss boo.

    There are two crowds with this movie. Those who think it was OK, and those who think it is brilliant. Few dislike it.
    My thoughts here are strong -- Brilliant, and then some.
    "The Incredibles" is the beginning of a new era of superhero movies. It pokes at the genre, and it tells a fantastic story in the process. More than a parody, it has a rich pro-family flavor, folded into a drama about relationships, yet never taking itself too seriously.
    The Plot
    Take a couple with superpowers, move them into a federal protection program after superheroes are sued, give them three kids who aren't allowed to use their powers, and wait. Prod them occasionally with anxiety and restlessness to keep them in minor trouble. Soon, a powerful, intelligent enemy bent on becoming a self-made messiah will come along.
    Will the retired and in-hiding superheroes don the uniforms and save the day? Can they after all these years? Who is this amazing arch enemy?
    Does my version of the plot tell as well as it works in the movie? Probably not, because what is missing is the funny sight gags, situation humor, and spectacular animation. You also don't hear the swift one-liners, allusions to classic comic books or sarcasm about society.
    The movie soars farther than the average superhero movie because, like Spiderman, it looks into the reality of the kind of personal life a superhero would have. If a world with superheroes existed, what would it be like? While the X-Men movies have attempted to address this, the concept of Charles Xavier's mansion is not easy to believe. Thinking that after Mr. Incredible unretired, he would have a beer gut is believable. These superheroes are just like us, after all, only "super."
    The art and design of "The Incredibles" is not the usual either.
