Review
THE INCREDIBLES is well, you know the title says it all really, but it does offer plenty of fun and wit as well as the action scenes which made this CGI film look really awesome and outstanding. The animation studio of Pixar and its people including director Brad Bird did a huge job with the movie and is really appealing to young boys who are interested in superheroes. I like three things of this animated feature, the supporting character Frozone being voiced by actor Samuel L. Jackson, the humorous part where the same character is asking his wife of where is his super-suit and the jazzy music score by Michael Giacchino.

THE INCREDIBLES may have borrowed the elements out of the comic books like the ones made by Marvel, but it is the best animated superhero film that everyone including those who have seen PIXAR movies like TOY STORY 1, 2, 3, WALL-E (click here), FINDING NEMO (click here) and others will enjoy watching it.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever
