Ok, so I really liked the first incredibles, but for a number of reasons walking into the cinema I was concerned. Mainly because when the first one came out I was a young child myself, and now I’m a browbeaten adult with a job and responsibilities, so a significant gap I’m sure people will agree! So I was worried that with such a gap the style and feel would be different, and that the voice actors would sound noticeably different from before, particularly the kids. I was wrong to worry!
It really is a great film and I cant imagine anyone who likes the first one disliking this. The tone is similar to the previous one, and the plot overall is very compelling, entertaining and funny (at least to an adult, cant speak for kids but plenty were laughing in the cinema!). The only real thing that shows the age gap between the two is the quality of the animation itself if you compare the two movies together, but that said the updated graphics in this one still keeps that broad blocky style of the first one, so its not too jarring a change. The voice actors are all excellent and all in all I cant think of anything I can complain about!
If you liked the first, you will like this!
