Starting literally right where the original hit left off at, Brad Bird revisits the superpowered Parr family in "Incredibles 2". It may not seem as fresh as the original film (one of Pixar's all time best works) but it remains a charming superhero adventure with crazy action scenes and zippy humor.
There is a twist at the end concerning the central threat, and it's conceptually interesting. Yet it felt underwhelming like a lot of recent "secret villains" in a lot of Disney movies.

Because I cherish ‘The Incredibles’ on multiple repeats when I was little. Also losing count of how many times I've played the PS2 game version. So yeah, this meant the world to me and anticipating a sequel for a long time, just like everyone else.
While ‘Incredibles 2’ doesn't quite hold a candle to the first, but still, I liked it. There’s a lot to like and enjoy. And yet recognize it’s flaws as well. It's not a disappointment, which makes me happy, just judging by Pixar recent involvement with it’s sequels.
