WHO - - The List -

Among the glut of su­per­hero films, here’s one with sub­stance. Pick­ing up from where we left The Incredibles 14 years ago, the su­per­hero fam­ily is back fight­ing evil, be­fore the gov­ern­ment shuts them down (for all the mess they make). En­ter su­per­hero ad­vo­cate Win­ston Deavor (Bob Odenkirk), who de­vises a PR plan to get Mr In­cred­i­ble (Nel­son), Elasti­girl, Vi­o­let, Dash and a scene steal­ing Jack-jack back on side with the city while a mys­te­ri­ous mind-con­troller plans to rid the world for good of “su­pers.” Gen­der roles, teenage angst and the em­pow­er­ment of chil­dren fig­ure strongly in this su­perb ac­tion­packed Pixar se­quel that will cap­ti­vate ev­ery age.
