The film picks up exactly where it left off in its first installment where the family of supers (the Parr family) is fighting the Underminer. As per the first installment, the supers are banned to use their powers and are considered to be illegal if caught doing so. Soon, the Parr family has been approached by Winston Deavor, an entrepreneur, a true superhero believer, who offers them a plan to regain the public’s support and trust in Supers. Meanwhile, a mysterious villain named ScreenSlaver arises, who can hijack any screens in order to project hypnotic images that can brainwash and control people, who seek to spoil the public image of all supers. Rest of the film depicts the rollercoaster fun ride of adventure of the Parr family.
After 14 years, the family of supers assembles once again to save the world. The film is a sheer fun to watch with the deeper arcs to existing characters and introduction to some refreshingly new characters. In particular, Jack-Jack, a super-cute super-baby, just steals the show, every time he tries to mumble or do something it is just hilarious to watch. The swapped roles of Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl, and a mysterious villain who challenges the morality of superheroes form the crux of the film. It is nostalgic to watch this film after so many years, and it simply puts a smile on our face, filling us with laughter and emotions.
Verdict : Disney and Pixar together are evolving over a period of time. Along with the best animation quality the film also delivers a good story. Just go and join this spectacular and hilarious rollercoaster ride.
