What are people saying?

  • Zach Closs's rating of the film The Incredibles

    Why I love Brad Bird: He makes animated films the way other auteurs make film-films. In his hands, animation is less a genre and more of a stylistic choice.

  • msmichel's rating of the film The Incredibles

    Brad Bird moved to Pixar with this wonderful animated film after the equally impressive but box office disappointment of 'The Iron Giant'. Bird had a real feel for both the superhero and spy genre that shone through in this quite dazzling script. Voice casting was top notch as was the rendering of the magnificient set pieces throughout. Beneath the razzle dazzle was the true feeling of family which made it special.

  • ramosbarajas's rating of the film The Incredibles

    It's so fun and happy. The characters are so likeable that even the bad guy is somewhat charismatic. There are few such movies. My favorite character has to be Edna the fashion designer. The screenplay is really even, with a nice flow and rhythm. Probably one of my favorite Pixar films.

  • muh.'s rating of the film The Incredibles

    every time i watch it i am only reminded that this is the best superhero movie there is and i'm willing to defend it mano a mano if needed.

  • AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Incredibles

    "If everyone is super, then no one is." This homage/ deconstruction of superheroes by Brad Bird, similar to The Lego Movie, tells us everyone can't be super (or "the special") but everyone has the opportunity to show how they are & how differences (together as a team) can save the world. Having this amount of meaning alongside a thrilling animated period-story, like Iron Giant, make the film even more incredible.

  • Adrian's rating of the film The Incredibles

    I don't know why people like it that much, in my opinion this is the worst Pixar film (in tie with Cars). Their other films are a lot more memorable. Up and the first Toy Story are even in my top 50. The Incredibles was just a fun film with good jokes, some great ideas throughout as we can expect from Pixar, but nothing extraordinary.

  • MGeo's rating of the film The Incredibles

    Leave it to Brad Bird to make one of the best Pixar films ever. Not only is it rip-roaring fun with incredible performances, but it has some of the most real characters that Pixar has every portrayed. Everyone in it is a fleshed out, logical human being you can immediately attach to. All my favorite actors are there somewhere. The best character is Edna Mode...HILARIOUS!! Still in my top 5 fave Pixar films.

  • NUGA's rating of the film The Incredibles

    I didn't think I would like it as much as I did. Being a super-hero film, you obviously don't get the creativity every other Pixar film has, but that's not to say the Pixar quality isn't there either. Sure fantastic four did the super family first and super-heroes are nothing new but this isn't just about flashy costumes and superpowers, actually far from it. The commentary on mediocrity and excellence is spot on.
