Product Description

CGI-animated action adventure from Pixar Animations Studios, the creators of 'Toy Story' and 'Finding Nemo'. Bob Parr (Craig T. Nelson) used to be one of the world's greatest superheroes, known to all as 'Mr Incredible' - saving lives and fighting evil on a daily basis. But now, fifteen years later, Bob and his wife Helen (Holly Hunter) - a former superhero in her own right - have adopted civilian identities and retreated to the suburbs to live normal lives with their three children. Now Bob's a clock-punching insurance claims adjuster, fighting boredom and a bulging waistline. Itching to get back into action, Bob gets his chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top secret assignment.

From Amazon.co.uk

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.--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.

This is my favourite Pixar movie and by some margin. All of the studio's films are a cut above: in terms of both story and presentation. However, if there's one criticism that could be levelled at them, it's that hitherto their formula could be loosely described as 'misfits on a quest'.

Enter Brad Bird, a writer-director whose previous effort, the vastly underrated The Iron Giant, demonstrated that good characterisation can transcend a limited budget. Although championed by John Lasseter, Bird's arrival was looked on askance by Disney executives and Pixar staff alike as he set about constructing something new. The running time was increased to two hours, which allowed for a deeper narrative structure. What emerged was a part-domestic drama, part-comic book homage that has a very stylised look and is consistently entertaining.

The Incredibles is about a superhero family who are unable to live the life they once did. If there's one thing that defines America more than overeating and gun ownership, it's that lawyers have evolved into a distinct species who can spot a no win-no fee case if someone's wearing the wrong shirt. (That may be a generalisation but so long as they look on our crooked teeth as if it's a rabies symptom, I feel I'm allowed to make it.) What were once acts of superhuman kindness have become an inconvenience to the point of litigation. As a result, 'supers' are forced to live among the populace incognito, shunned by the society they once protected.

From this setting, some interesting themes develop from the character dynamics.
