THE INCREDIBLES follows the adventures of a family of former superheroes rediscovering the value of family life. Pixar has come up with another gem with a state of the art computer generated animated world. Brad Bird directs this film and voices one of the characters.

The story begins with Bob Parr (AKA Mr. Incredible) and his fight against evil, saving the world on a daily basis. The story fast forwards 15 year to find Bob and his wife Helen (a superhero in her own right) forced to take on civilian identities, retreating to the suburbs. Today they lead a normal life with their 3 kids. Bob has put on some weight and works as a clerk for an insurance agency. Then a mysterious call brings Mr. Incredible back into action and the film gets very exciting as he fights evil again and has a chance to save the world. Craig T. Nelson voices Mr. Incredible. Holly Hunter does the voice for his wife Helen. Other actors are Samuel L. Jackson, Jason Lee, Wallace Shawn, Sarah Vowell, Spencer Fox and Brad Bird himself in the role of diva "Edna Mode." Who comes close to stealing the show.

The show itself runs a little long for an animated feature but finishes in a flurry of special effects that left me dumbfounded. Don't miss it folks.
