An image from The Incredibles

The Incredibles follows a family of former superheroes, now under the witness protection program after many lawsuits were filed against them, forcing them into retirement. Bob Parr/Mr Incredible has never quite got over the good old days of being a superhero. While the rest of the family try to carry on as ‘normal’, 'Syndrome' (a villain with a grudge) abducts Mr Incredible and it is up to the rest of the family to display their unique superpowers to save the day.

It would be too much of a pun to say The Incredibles was incredible, and yet again Pixar have produced a great family film which you want to watch again and again. With great characters such as Edna Mode and Frozon, (Samuel L. Jackson) you are easily engrossed in the story and rooting for the good guys to win throughout.

As with all of Pixar films the humour is perfectly suited for the kid within. With great imagery and a rollercoaster plot, even if you have seen this film before, it’s always worth another viewing for the jokes you missed the first time.
