The story of Incredibles 2 centers on the Parr family dealing with another conflict as Helen/Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) is selected to bring Supers back from retirement while Bob/Mr.Incredible (Craig T.Nelson) has to stay home and watch the kids. While I was hesitant at first, the story of Incredibles 2 ended up being better than expected. The plot handled its concepts well as both Helen’s case and the family being stuck at home were executed decently, and both sides of the story meshed well with the movie’s overall tone. Yet this super tale was not without its weaknesses as the story had a tendency to drag on and certain plot points were too predictable for my taste. However things still worked out for the story as its stylish delivery made the plot one that was both entertaining and fitting for the Pixar series.
The cast of The Incredibles was a major factor to the film's success as it was empowered with memorable characters. So it would be difficult for the sequel's cast to live up to its predecessor, but sure enough the cast found a way to shine. The Parr family was at it again as the family of Supers were as enjoyable as they were in 2004 film. Each Parr received relevant development particularly Mr.Incredible as his was surprisingly well done. Elastigirl’s development was good, but I felt she needed a personal conflict to deal with in order for her to progress. The film featured a solid supporting cast from returning characters such as Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson) and Edna (Brad Bird) to new characters like Void (Sophia Bush)-though the new additions could have left a bigger impression. The evil Screenslaver, though lacking the impact of Syndrome, was an effective villain as the antagonist had a captivating agenda. When it came to performances each actor was fairly solid, though it seemed to take the cast time to get back into things, as they had fluent chemistry with each other-especially when it came to Parr family.
