The Story
Before, super heroes were recognized until someone sued Mr. Incredible for saving his life for the reason that he does not want to be saved. There were other complaints against him like the damages made on buildings and such. Then, a law mandated all the superheroes to act like normal people and prohibiting them to do superhero work. From then on, they live a normal life until one day, Mr. Incredible got fired at the Insurance Company he’s working for and Syndrome (formerly known as Incrediboy) contacted him through his wife. Suddenly, Mr. Incredible discovered that his invitation there is a trap to kill him, just like what happened to the other supers. Unfortunately, he was trapped and the rest of The Incredibles came to the rescue.

What I’ve got to say
This is the movie to watch, not just because of its neat computer graphics and sound effects but as well as the wit and sarcasm of the writer as well. I just love how the dialogues were done. With regards to the story itself, it’s like another one of those conspiracy-theory type of movies where the ally of the villain would then secretly help the protagonists in this film. Also, this movie reminded me of something like an obsessed fan (Incrediboy) that was put down by his idol (Mr. Incredible) and has come back (Incrediboy turned Syndrome) for revenge but backfired.
With regards to the characters, the super heroes themselves, their superpowers have been common in DC Comics and Marvel Comics as well. Elastigirl reminds me of Mr. Fantastic because they have the same superpower which is flexiblity. Mr. Incredible reminded me of several superheroes such as Thing, Incredible Hulk, and Super Man (without the flying ability, X-ray vision, speed, reflexes and his weakness for Kryptonite). Violet reminded me of Invisible Man (I know there is such thing but I’m not pretty sure if it’s a man or a woman). In addition to that, when I first saw her on the film, she looked like Sadako (from the movie Ringu) because her hair was all over her face. She also reminded me of Wednesday Addams because during the first part of the movie, she has a dull voice. Then, Dash reminded me of the superhero Flash because they have the same abilities. If Violet reminded me of Wednesday Addams, Dash reminded me of Pugsley because of the prank he played on his teacher.
