An incredible delight

This is my favourite Pixar movie and by some margin. All of the studio's films are a cut above: in terms of both story and presentation. However, if there's one criticism that could be levelled at them, it's that hitherto their formula could be loosely described as 'misfits on a quest'.

Enter Brad Bird, a writer-director whose previous effort, the vastly underrated [[ASIN:B00004R83O The Iron Giant]], demonstrated that good characterisation can transcend a limited budget. Although championed by John Lasseter, Bird's arrival was looked on askance by Disney executives and Pixar staff alike as he set about constructing something new. The running time was increased to two hours, which allowed for a deeper narrative structure. What emerged was a part-domestic drama, part-comic book homage that has a very stylised look and is consistently entertaining.

The Incredibles is about a superhero family who are unable to live the life they once did. If there's one thing that defines America more than overeating and gun ownership, it's that lawyers have evolved into a distinct species who can spot a no win-no fee case if someone's wearing the wrong shirt. (That may be a generalisation but so long as they look on our crooked teeth as if it's a rabies symptom, I feel I'm allowed to make it.) What were once acts of superhuman kindness have become an inconvenience to the point of litigation. As a result, 'supers' are forced to live among the populace incognito, shunned by the society they once protected.

From this setting, some interesting themes develop from the character dynamics. Husband, wife, brother and sister respectively embody frustration, acceptance, confidence and diffidence; meanwhile the antagonist's motivation stems from massive insecurity. If the film has a message, it's "Be all that you can be."

As a Pixar Blu-ray, it's de rigueur for the image to be perfect and it is. Some have bemoaned the lack of extras compared to the two-disc DVD and it's for that reason only that I'm deducting a star. However, you still get two audio commentaries, a couple of Pixar shorts and a twenty-minute roundtable retrospective from the film's creators.

Got it ! English/Hindi soundtrack version review
Verified purchase
Very thankful to Pixar/Buena Vista UK for including the HINDI dubb in the incredibles DVD. As a South Asian, it was delightfull to see the movie in my mother tongue.
.
The picture quality of the movie was pristine. The English soundtrack was nice 2. The voice talents in the Enlish version that really impressed me was EDNA MODES. The action packed sound effects was really good, which did deserve them 2 Oscars

MACHINE WASHABLE, NOW THATS A NEW FEATURE.
The new feature in this is movie is the loss of the DTS track, but dont worry, the DD 5.1 is impressive. The second feature is the Hindi dubb track i mentioned above featuring Bollywood actors like SHAH RUKH KHAN as Bob Parr aka My inredible aka hindi Mr. Lajawab n son Aryan Khan as Dash aka Hindi Tez ( meanin FAst). Javed Jafferi plays as Syndrome and is also the hindi script writer. His performance, along with Edna Modes was truly impressive in the hindi dubb.
In contrast to the R1 vs R2, my personal choice would be the R2 due to the hindi dubb, otherwise if u want the other extras not available in the R2, get the R1 DVD instead. It doesnt make any difference this time whether u get this from UK or the US/CAN, like previously to other Pixar titles, which were better qualtiy wise in the R2 edits.
Though the dvd extras were good, I did found something funny. There is more than 3GB space left in Disc 2. If they could send all the trailers on to disc 1 with boundin short, then we could have managed to put the FullScreen version in it. My younger sister enjoyed the movie but didnt like the black bars at all. You might think I m crazy going for FOOL SCREEN but its just for the kids who dont appreciate the black bars. The extras not added in the R2 version is the "Vowellet: An Essay by Sarah Vowell" and "Character Interviews", which I wanted to see.
An INCREDIBLE DVD for the whole family.

Doug Thomas do your research
Verified purchase
First off I would just to raise a point to Doug Thomas who writes in the amazon description "it's Pixar's first PG film" I'm sorry but is it really??? The very first Pixar feature film, Toy Story, was a PG so how can this be their first PG rated film?

On to the film, it's very funny and is aptly described by critics of the Fantastic 4 series owned by Fox that this is the best version of Fantastic 4. There may be 5 characters but Jak-Jak doesn't really come into it and this has the storyline to rival some of the best superhero movies. Pixar are known for their great storytelling, the funny Disney humour that comes with it and the family friendly film. This ticks all of those boxes and you will not be disappointed. The only reason this is a 4 star review is because there are not enough special features compared to the 2 disc DVD release or the 3 disc US release. A digital copy to those of you now thinking it's 4 discs is not a disc it's a leaflet with a code hence the title digital copy. It's a triple play boxset. When will the US and the UK get the same things? It's not just Disney it's every big film company

One of Pixar's better films
Verified purchase
For a company that puts out brilliant film after brilliant film, to say that this is one of the best is saying a lot.

Superheroes are huge at the moment and the wonderfully told tale of a family of superheroes was enjoyable for everyone in the family. From my 4 year old nephew (the recipient of this present) to my 60 year old father, The Incredibles had something for all of us that kept us giggling and glued to the television.

What says it all about this film was that it managed to keep my both of my nieces and my nephew still and watching which says a lot for three children who normally bounce around the house like bunnies who take hourly caffeine injections. On the other hand it also managed to keep my mother awake and watching which is a feat that is almost as impressive for a movie.

Overall this is a fun movie that looks great on DVD and can keep the whole family thoroughly entertained for a couple of hours. What more could you want for a family film such as this?

I watched this again a couple of days ago with two grandchildren aged 4 and 6 (having seen it originally in the cinema when it first came out). I had forgotten what a marvellous film it is. It's pacy, funny, very human (even if it is about superheroes), witty and extremely entertaining - and the quality of the animation is a joy in itself. No need for a long review - there are 112 others as I write this - I really just want to pay tribute to a film which is as good as it gets of its kind. I may say the story, of Mr. Incredible's struggle against the aspiring and eventually very dangerous Incrediboy (or Syndrome, as he prefers to be known), is a strong one too - edge-of-the-seat stuff for the two little boys I watched it with. Not all Disney/Pixar films work, though the production values are always high. This is one that does.
