With The Incredibles 2 ready to launch in North America the lid has been lifted on its reviews. Does the long, long awaited sequel live up to the first film?
As of writing the film holds a 96% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes based off the first 40-50 reviews.
Here’s what some of the top critics had to say:
Prior to this, Brad Bird made what can unequivocally be called two of Pixar’s best movies. Now that statement can be updated to say that he’s made three of Pixar’s best. [4.5/5]
Incredibles 2 captures most of the fun of Pixar’s The Incredibles, but feels somewhat outdated in the modern Hollywood landscape of superhero movies. [2.5/5]
Den of Geek
It’s an easygoing and sometimes overly familiar slouch toward retro superheroics, yet unlike Pixar’s last several bland sequels, and almost the entire whole of the superhero genre these days, Incredibles 2 has something to say. [4/5]
The animation is stellar and detailed in excellent action sequences, Michael Giacchino’s score swings harder than ever, and the first film’s family-friendly warmth is just as appealing now as it was then. [3/4]
It’s still fun to watch smart storytellers like [Brad] Bird working within the system and using his platform to self-evaluate or comment on what’s going on, even if the conclusion is a little flimsy. [3/4]
Their adventures are timeless. And this one is worth the incredibly long wait. [3/4]
A similarly rousing and savvy adventure that energetically serves up more of what we love and yet wisely, wittily, reverses the first film’s accommodating traditionalism to make for an even richer, funnier portrait of its tight and in-tights family.
What was organic, and even obsessive, in the first outing comes off as pat and elaborate formula here.
In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
The Incredibles 2 lands in cinemas on June 15, 2018 in the US and July 13 in the UK.
