    Bird has created the unprecedented film that is not just a grand feature-length cartoon but a grand feature, period, a piece of animation that's involving across a spectrum of comedy, action, even drama.
  2. Dazzlingly beautiful, funny, and meaningful.
  3. Pixar again hitches top-notch storytelling to the very best in CG animation.

    The movie is full of wonderful little touches: Syndrome, the bad guy, is drawn to remind viewers of "Heat Miser" from the classic Christmas cartoon "The Year Without a Santa Claus."
  5. Clever, buoyant and surprisingly human.

    Looks like 2004 has given birth to a new superhero franchise after all.

    The fun hardens into Fun after he's (Mr. Incredible) lured out of retirement and imprisoned in a remote island compound, though the sleek computer animation is spellbinding as usual.

    "The Incredibles" is truly incredible. While mastering inventive storytelling with CG animation; where can you go wrong. Its story is able to mask spectacles and is a great tribute to superheroes. Which super hero action and the importance of family, you are left hanging off your seat for more. With "The Incredibles", they do give you much more than an ordinary super hero flick. Expand

    Amazing film AGAIN from Pixar. I'm not a big fan of superhero films but this one really amazes me. It has the comic element that is mixed with family affair and sympathy. Graphics are incredible and the plot is very exciting. This is an animation to a whole new level...... Expand

    The Incredibles is Incredible.
    A well paced well written story of super heroes that must learn to blend into society until a new villain
    emerges that threatens the public's safety. The Incredibles erupts with clever characters and emotional moments that all ages can cherish. Expand
