The Incredibles are back! After Bob Parr alias Mr. Incredible, his wife Helen alias Elastigirl and their children Violet and Dash have destroyed the city while trying to arrest a greedy bank robber, the fate of the superheroes seems to be sealed. The parrs are relegated to anonymity. But the heavy rich siblings Winston and Evelyn Deavor want to change this with the help of Elastigirl. While Helen shows his full commitment to polish up the image of superheroes, Bob has to take care of the children and Baby Jack-Jack, which plunges him into a deep crisis of meaning. But then, with Screenslaver, a new villain emerges who Elastigirl has to put a stop to - not knowing that she is in danger of falling into a long-prepared trap…
When "The Incredibles" entered the cinemas fourteen years ago, there wasn't yet the mass of superhero adventures that Marvel and DC, felt, let loose on the viewers in a monthly rhythm. And even in the animated films there was still class over mass. So it's no wonder that the mixture of superhero adventure and James Bond homage made such an impression on the audience. Although the circumstances have changed considerably in recent years and the competition has become much bigger, the Parrs are doing incredibly well again in their second cinema adventure.
"The Incredible 2" follows directly after the end of the first part. Apart from the fact that the quality of the animations has visibly improved, the film is like a reunion with old friends from the first second on. Director Brad Bird has managed very well to plausibly spin the story further after all these years and to consistently develop the popular characters further. Does it work? Yes and no. The film simply lacks the special that made up the first part. It should be noted in the staging that this time an attempt was also made to outdo not only the predecessor, but also the other cinema superheroes. This leads to the fact that some scenes are just too much of a good thing. This also loses some of the charm of the first movie.
Although not too much. Bird has succeeded in producing one of the best superhero films of recent times and in any case the best animated film of recent months, despite the weaknesses that have almost inevitably arisen due to the changed cinema landscape. The adventure is full of original ideas, great action and humour, where the viewer often has to laugh tears. Especially Baby Jack-Jack, the secret star of the film, is responsible for some real screams.
Although "Die Unglaublichen 2" can't surpass the original, the film is a more than successful sequel, which is about to become the most successful animated film of all time with a box-office takings of almost 1.2 billion dollars. A great pleasure for children aged 6 and over and all adult fans of Mr. Incredible and his family. Absolutely worth seeing!
