VERDICT  – 2/4

 

PROS–
1) Jack-Jack: Star of the movie! His unpredictable, unknown powers make him the most fascinating character of this film.

 

CONS –
1) A villain is as good as his motive. Evelyn / Screenslaver was mediocre and of course predictable from the very first minute.
2) Keene Act remains the central plot. Over-used theme.
3) Mr. Incredible teaming up with Frozone for stopping an ordinary ship? And that’s supposed to be the boss fight? I’m feeling sorry for Brad Bird.

Pros –

Helen: I can’t believe you don’t want to go to your own son’s graduation.
Bob: It’s not a graduation. He is moving from the 4th grade to the 5th grade.
Helen: It’s a ceremony!
Bob: It’s psychotic! They keep creating new ways to celebrate mediocrity, but if someone is genuinely exceptional…
