The Incredibles 

 

I enjoy super hero movies, especially animated ones. It is a real honor and a pleasure for me to review The Incredibles on Blu-ray. Disney Pixar was kind enough to provide Family Friendly Gaming with the 2 disc Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy of The Incredibles. What amazes me to this day is the depth of this film. There are so many issues touched upon, and so many angles this movie can be looked at. Pixar took elements of current society and applied it to a world with super heroes. Sue happy people mixed with judges and juries who side with their insanity. Missing the glory days. Faithfulness in marriage. Honesty in relationships. These are just a few of the deep topics The Incredibles deals with.

The animation is top notch in The Incredibles. This movie reminds me of the Fantastic Four in so many different areas. That is not a bad thing, in fact it is a compliment. There is violence as bad guys are punched, kicked and thrown about. Technically the good characters take their lumps as well. Various explosions are also a part of the storyline. Something that sets The Incredibles apart for me is the level of emotion the characters exhibit. There are some touching scenes, and some very playful ones.

The music in The Incredibles has a real jazz feel to it. This fits the theme of the movie, and make it quite the experience. There are characters who lie about things, and they have to face that mistake. The children disobey at one point, and learn from their mistake. One of the issues The Incredibles deals with is kids growing up. Imagine how hard it would be to grow up with super powers. Layered on top of that is having to hide your powers because of public opinion. Every time I watch The Incredibles I come away with something different to think about.

I love round tables, and I love behind the scenes. There are a lot of bonus features on the Blu-ray discs of The Incredibles. And yes I did say discs as in plural. Gary's birthday is an interesting feature that I enjoyed. The Filmmakers round table is fantastic. The interactive island renovation is interesting, albeit a little tongue in cheek. A sneak peak of Cars 2 is also on these discs. Which has me very excited to see Cars 2 in a few months. The Incredibles is a movie that can be enjoyed over and over again.

The Incredibles has a story that flows wonderfully. I can marvel at the artistic nature in the audio and video but it does not stop there. This movie was put together masterfully well. Each of the characters is fleshed out perfectly. I could understand why each one was doing what they were doing. I enjoyed the children getting to use their powers, and become super heroes themselves. Like I have said before there are many layers to The Incredibles, and I am not sure I have unearthed all of them.

Every single member of our family enjoys The Incredibles. There is something in this movie for everyone. Women can relate to the mother and daughter. Men can relate to the father, and boys can relate to the son. All ages can enjoy Jack-Jack. The violence is the only thing that may turn some off. I watch how my children act after watching shows. They do not get aggressive after watching The Incredibles. There are other movies they have gotten aggressive after watching, so it is a good gauge.
