The Incredibles

| No TrackBacks

As promised, I have continued the wildly successful film critiques. This time I'm breaking away from the norm, in that I am reviewing a film animation.
Why is this any different you ask ? Well, I rarely watch cartoons on TV, let alone the silver screen. Besides, most cartoons are way too advanced for children anway.
The Incredibles are no different. While there was no graphic violence or gratuitous nudity, the story line is very mature indeed.

Without giving away the plot, lets just say it deals with adult themes relative to superhuman achievement. All of the characters were done in good taste. The voiceovers even featured well-known talent. The most notable was Samuel Jackson.

Animation is special because it gives you the perception that all of the dialogue is 'make believe', and you really can't take the characters too seriously. Some of the scenes were absolutely hilarious. Very suitable for children ages 8-12. I wouldn't go much younger than age 8, as the content may not be easily understood by very young kids.
