Movie Review: The Incredibles (2004)

As Hamlette hosted We ❤ Superheros Week this year, I thought I would join in with the first "super" movie I ever saw!
I actually wish that I have seen a lot more superheros movies, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

While this is the first, I have always thought that it was a little weird, and that it wasn't my favorite ever. You'll never guess what it is (unless you read the title of this post, or you are looking at the above picture)

My guarantee: On ALL of my reviews there are NO spoilers unless it says so.

The Incredibles (2004):
"It is time for their secret identities to become their only identity."
Bob and Helen Parr have pretty regular lives. Ever since superheros were made to be against the law, they have just been leading normal lives, raising their three children. Bob gets fired, but doesn't want Helen to be disappointed, so he starts working for a mysterious boss, doing superhero work. But, being a little out of shape among other things, Bob gets in trouble and needs his whole family's help.
"What are you waiting for?"
"I don't know, something amazing I guess."
Genre: Action
Length: approx. 115 minutes.
Costumes: 7, they are definitely not my favorite, but we do have the fabulous Superhero fashion designer. "He'll look fabulous."
Script: 9, no bad words.
Directed by: Brad Bird
Produced by: John Walker
Written by: Brad Bird
Starring the voices of:
Craig T. Nelson as Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible.
Holly Hunter as Helen Parr/Elastigirl.
Sarah Vowell as Violet Parr.
Spencer Fox as Dash Parr.
Jason Lee as Incredi-Boy/Syndrome.
Samuel L. Jackson as Lucius Best/Frozone.
Brad Bird as Edna Mode.
Wallace Shawn as Gilbert Huph.
Michael Bird as Tony Rydinger.
Bret Parker as Kari McKeen.
Elizabeth Peña as Mirage.
Eli Fucile and Maeve Andrews as Jack-Jack Parr.
Lou Romano as Bernie Kropp, Dash's teacher.
Music: 9
Music by: Michael Giacchino
Quotes: 9, "We're going towards the people who tried to kill us?"
Storyline: 7, there is suggestive stuff, and death. It deals with a very big subject, which I am not sure quite how to react to it. I have always been really confused by this movie, there is just a weird feeling about it.
Good For: People who like superheros, people who are going through a hard time in their family.
Overall Score: 8!

Thank you so much to Hamlette for hosting this! Do you like this movie? Would you explain it to me a little? Thanks for reading!



  1. I do like this one, though it has never been among my most favorite Disney-Pixar movies. I think it has a good storyline, but superheroes are just not something I'm really into. *shrugs* :)

    1. It is so weird, my dad and I have this thing for superhero and spy movies. Everyone else leaves the room, except him and me. It does have a good storyline, but I guess I just didn't get it when I was littler. I like it more now.

  2. I LOVE The Incredibles! Can you believe that they're making a second movie?!?! *screams* I'M SO EXCITED!!

    1. I am liking it more, the more I watch it! "Too late, 14 years too late." ;D It does look like it will be good so I'm excited.

  3. Oooooo! If you want to see more really good animated Superheroes, watch Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir. You can find the episodes on YouTube AND Netflix. It's rather cheesy, but a ton of fun.

    1. I love cheesy movies! I am definitely going to look those up! Thanks for the reccomendations! In fact, I think I'm going to look them up right now.

  4. I've never watched the Incredibles...*hides*

    Awesome review, MC!


    1. You should! It is one of the Pixar classics. If I don't make you, Lilah will. :)

      Thanks, Catherine!

  5. Elastigirl's leg in the second poster is kind of creeping me out😂
