Incredibles 2 ★★★★½


"You know it's crazy, right? To help my family, I gotta leave it to fix the law, I gotta break it."

"You've got to, so our kids can have that choice."

Times have certainly changed, as the spatial rarities and impeccable idiosyncrasy of Brad Bird's craftsmanship continues to juxtapose elaborately constructed action set-pieces - via the visceral movements of his frames and visual seamlessness - with the connective tissue of familial dynamics. The clever decision for this to occur right after the original film, in addition to its (slight) gestures of progressive social commentary (ex: the horrors of capitalism erupting across the entirety of the planet), further adds to the comedy and emotion factor of its momentary-based narrative weight - even if the weakness of its thematics, tied to the non-existent exploration of the villains, may put off more people. A world without superheroes... maybe it's possible. Raccoon fight for the win.
