What is incredible in The Incredibles is the computer imaging.
Rick Kisonak - MovieWeb
The command and ingenuity with which Pixar has, once again, raised the level of excellence to which animated movies (and, why stop there, all movies) can aspire is easy to take for granted.
Lisa Schwarzbaum - Entertainment Weekly
Pixar's new animated action-comedy, about a superhero family stuck in middle-class suburban exile, comes tantalizingly close to greatness.
A.O. Scott - New York Times
One of the year's most clever and visually arresting computer-animated films.
Claudia Puig - USA Today
As always, Pixar excels with its animation, but what makes this family film even more appealing is the smartness of the script, which is clearly written, end to end, to appeal to adults as well as children.
Jennifer Frey - Washington Post
Easily the best and brightest family-friendly movie of the year.
Desson Thomson - Washington Post
An emotionally resonant, inventively hilarious movie that, oddly, may be its most family-friendly yet.
Ty Burr - Boston Globe
The Incredibles announces the studio's arrival in the vast yet overcrowded Hollywood lot of eardrum-bashing, metal-crunching action sludge.

The sleek beauty, crafty wit, family warmth, and impeccable slapstick suffusing The Incredibles immediately vaults it to a new, higher level of entertainment.
Ken Tucker - New York Magazine
The folks at the movie's heart are exaggerated way beyond our capacities but not quite beyond our imaginings. The title is unjust; these are the very slightly credibles.
Anthony Lane - New Yorker
Here's another example of Pixar's mastery of popular animation.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
A vivid, sublime parody and valentine to the superhero genre.

Peter Howell - Toronto Star
Not only is this a rollicking cartoon joy ride for all the little Olivias and Spencers in your life -- it's a solid film in its own right.
Leah McLaren - Globe and Mail
The Incredibles has that rare quality of feeling modern and classic at the same time.
Stephanie Zacharek - Salon.com
Made with so much wit, such cinematic savvy, and such a brilliant instinct for the way real bodies move through space, that it has more ontological authenticity than a lot of films featuring people who actually exist.
David Edelstein - Slate
Exemplary mixture of top-notch storytelling, visual razzle-dazzle, accessible humor, and involving action.
James Berardinelli - ReelViews
As imaginative and astute as any general audience entertainment has been for a long while.

Tim Brayton - Antagony & Ecstasy
...far from engrossing...
David Nusair - Reel Film Reviews
This truly is a film that turns is every bit as incredibly good as it has been made out to be.
Steve Biodrowski - Cinefantastique
Frame for frame, The Incredibles is as good as any live action superhero film ever made, and often far more convincing.
Devin Faraci - CHUD
Daniel Etherington - Film4
It re-animates the thrill, not just the nostalgia, of old-school comic books and pulp adventure.
Rob Gonsalves - eFilmCritic.com
In a word: Incredible.
Joe Lozito - Big Picture Big Sound
Bombastic finale aside, it's a cut (and an age-range) above the simplicities of Finding Nemo.
- Time Out
A movie that demonstrates once again why the studio continues to leave competing product from the likes of Disney and DreamWorks in the dust.
Pete Vonder Haar - Film Threat
...the real secret to Pixar's greatness lies not in the animation, but in their wonderful choice of stories that appeal to both children and parents.
Uri Lessing - www.kcactive.com
The Incredibles shows once and for all what was right in front of our noses all along, that Pixar is not an animation studio but a movie studio. And not just a movie studio, but the best movie studio.

The Incredibles has humor, thrills, and adventure, but most of all it has heart.
John J. Puccio - DVDTown.com
John J. Puccio - Movie Metropolis
Vic Holtreman - ScreenRant
[It] goes beyond the pretty visuals and the slam-bam action to get us under the skin of a family trying hard to be something they're not.
Anthony Del Valle - Las Vegas Mercury
It's the thrilling, personal storytelling that elevates [the film] into not just the best animated movie of the year... but also one of the best movies of 2004, period.
Brent Simon - Now Playing Magazine
Los Increibles es lo mas parecido que vas a poder encontrar a una montana rusa (...)
Enrique Buchichio - Uruguay Total
Explodes with humour, ingenuity and a freshness.
Urban Cinefile Critics - Urban Cinefile
- Sunday Times (Australia)
Bird's satiric take on suburbia, conformity and forced notions of equality is surprisingly sophisticated and biting for an animated feature, matched by a visual panache that is often breathtaking.
Kevin Lally - Film Journal International
E ironico que alguns dos personagens mais complexos do ano tenham surgido nao em uma producao estrelada por atores de carne-e-osso, mas sim por figuras criadas em computador.
Pablo Villaca - Cinema em Cena

Kids will love it and want to see it again and again. Adults . . . probably will too.
Brian Mckay - eFilmCritic.com
You must take your family to see this in the theater. You can only really appreciate it on the big screen.
Kamal 'The Diva' Larsuel - 3BlackChicks Review
A masterfully crafted entertainment that devolves into an overlong, overly loud, and disappointingly stock shoot 'em up.
David N. Butterworth - Movie Boeuf
With their best film to date, the Pixar team has taken the animated feature into realms of narrative and visual design never before seen.
Emanuel Levy - EmanuelLevy.Com
Stunningly animated, if somewhat derivative, story of an ordinary, extraordinary family.
Anton Bitel - Movie Gazette
... a terrific, smart and thoroughly engaging family film.
Lori Hoffman - Atlantic City Weekly
Flies high above the crowd for its worldly wit and compassion for humankind.
Stella Papamichael - BBC
A first-class animated feature.
Robert Roten - Laramie Movie Scope
Provides all the wonder and excitement to be wrought from the superhero genre while making fun of itself in gut-busting ways.
George Wu - culturevulture.net
Had the picture been written half as well as it was drawn, I suspect it would have proven at the very least twice as super.
Rick Kisonak - Film Threat
When it comes to animation, it doesn't get any better than this.
Mark Sells - Film Threat
"This is a blast to watch! The bursts of color are phenomenal, and the action is fast and furious."
Jeanne Kaplan - Kaplan vs. Kaplan
"The film has a fair amount of humor, but without the special effects, which are dazzling, at times, it's a pretty ordinary story."
David Kaplan - Kaplan vs. Kaplan
The setttings in The Incredibles are endlessly inventive, the action exuberant, the laughter frequent and the characters a bottomless toy box of delights.
Stuart Klawans - Nation
Stuart Klawans - The Nation
Brad Bird has crafted a sleek and original homage to the derring-do of our most cherished superheroes.
James Kendrick - Q Network Film Desk
Original adventures such as The Incredibles are the ones that will have families watching them over and over and over again, over the years.
JoBlo - JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Bird's intricate, colorful and super-kinetic action is a cyber equivalent of eye candy. It's also loaded with empty calories.
Thomas Delapa - Boulder Weekly
A film so miraculous and so far above its competitors that the Academy Award for Animated Feature Film is no longer a contest.
Jeffrey M. Anderson - Combustible Celluloid
Est immediatement devenu mon film de Pixar favori.
Nicolas Lacroix - EnPrimeur.ca

Angela Baldassarre - Sympatico.ca
Mix X-Men with True Lies and Spy Kids then add the retro design of The Powerpuff Girls all tied together with the magical technology of Pixar...
Laura Clifford - Reeling Reviews
A hilariously fun romp through the everyday lives of comic-book superheroes.
John R. McEwen - Film Quips Online
This remarkably entertaining and meaty motion picture is all eye candy and goofy entertainment for children, but underneath lies a biting denunciation on a number of contemporary topics.
James O'Ehley - Sci-Fi Movie Page
It's a great and memorable romp that will leave your family feeling super.
Linda Cook - Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
A family-friendly rallying cry against conformity, far more daring than the tastelessness that passes for daring in Team America, but undercut by excessive length.
Ken Hanke - Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
As in Spider-Man 2, crime-fighting and derring-do take a backseat to domestic drama and our connections with these larger-than-life yet down-to-earth characters.
Sean Burns - Philadelphia Weekly
The Incredibles, for all its kid-friendly sops, feels like one of the most mature movies currently gracing theaters.
Matt Brunson - Creative Loafing
The Incredibles est encore un bon produit provenant de Pixar [mais] dommage que l'histoire ne soit pas toujours tres inspirante et ne suscite pas l'interet escompte.

'The Incredibles' deserves a place on the top rung of family films.
John P. McCarthy - ReelTalk Movie Reviews
It is trite to say, but the only word to describe this movie is INCREDIBLE!
Jackie K. Cooper - jackiekcooper.com
Wild, wondrous and utterly disarming ... sweet but never saccharine, freed from the shackles of postmodern irony and cleverness for its own sake.
Jonathan R. Perry - Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
Pixar does it again with a comedy/action film about a family of superheroes. The writing is the real attraction. THE INCREDIBLES is subversive, heart-warming, and fun.
Mark R. Leeper - rec.arts.movies.reviews
Gorgeously designed and animated.
Kevin N. Laforest - Montreal Film Journal
Since it's too much a crowd-pleaser to be critical of the violent payoff that it delivers, it's tough not to take its apparent message seriously.
Jeremy Heilman - MovieMartyr.com
Bird continually overlays both visual and verbal gags, trusting that his audience can think fast.
Mark Palermo - Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
The Incredibles isn't. It's a good movie, but it isn't the incredible type of picture we've come to expect from Pixar.
Steve Rhodes - Internet Reviews
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.
Vince Koehler - Entertainment Spectrum
Outrageously funny and imaginative...the latest thumping thrill ride in the animation genre. A snappy and smart superhero saga that's intriguingly charming in its chaotic mode
Frank Ochieng - Movie Eye

As one who's ingested a lot of superhero comics, books, and movies over the years, I can attest that this works as a genuine superhero movie, not just as a family film.
Mike McGranaghan - Aisle Seat
A fun story with some creative characters and plenty of Pixar wit.
Jeff Otto - IGN Movies
Overflows with slapstick and more gentle strains of humor, while a core of genuine emotion that is nothing if not ambitiously nuanced resonates throughout a script.
Marc Savlov - Austin Chronicle
Pixar Animation spends an entire year on each of their mammoth productions on the scripts alone. Could this explain why their movies are consistently clever and entertaining?
Dan Lybarger - eFilmCritic.com
A warm, funny, exciting film for which I feel more affection the more I think about it.
Eric D. Snider - EricDSnider.com
Pixar reinvents itself again with a rah-rah rally cry for the American family.

As a die-hard Red Sox fan, the highest praise I can give Pixar's latest is that it held my full attention after a madcap and largely sleepless Victory Parade weekend.
Larry Carroll - FilmStew.com
Like Elastigirl, Pixar shows it can be pulled in many directions and snap back into shape, invariably vanquishing any challenger that stands in the way.
Jon Niccum - Lawrence Journal-World
Brad Bird's richly imagined, retro-moderne homage to the superhero-fueled daydreams of his youth creates a vibrantly original mythology.

The people at Pixar have done it again. They've married state-of-the-art computer animation to great storytelling and have delivered a unique film full of heart, pathos and an unfailing faith in the triumph of good over evil.
Paul Clinton (CNN.com) - CNN.com
A departure for Pixar: longer and a bit grittier ... and created by someone outside the Pixar family. ... But the movie's central elements are pure Pixar.
Sean Means - Salt Lake Tribune
A standard issue superhero adventure? Probably not the most original thought that's ever crossed (Pixar's) collective minds.
Sean O'Connell - Eclipse Magazine
The best 3-D animated extravaganza since Monsters, Inc.
James Verniere - Boston Herald
That The Incredibles is so polished and assured comes as no surprise. The question is, will Pixar's formula ever get old?
Rob Vaux - Flipside Movie Emporium
[S]imply a great film, overflowing with humor and heart and soul and with lots of interesting things to say about love and family and following your dreams...

Bird has made a traditional action movie full of chases, crashes and stunt work.
Lawrence Toppman - Charlotte Observer
The film proves there are auteurs even within the army-of-collaborators medium that is big-budget animation.
John Beifuss - Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
The rich collection of animated characters really lives on screen. Once again, Pixar raises the bar for computer-animation storytelling.
John Wirt - Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
Another hip-but- wholesome animated family comedy from Hollywood superhero Pixar.
Terry Lawson - Detroit Free Press
Even by Pixar standards, The Incredibles is unexpected, a mold-breaking computer-animated adventure that pleases the eye, bends the mind and, ultimately, lifts the spirit.
Lisa Rose - Newark Star-Ledger
certainly the animated movie of the year and, for my money, one of the best times you'll have at the movies all year.
Jeffrey Lyles - Gazette (MD)
I can't shake the notion that The Incredibles may not be all it might have been. It stomps all the expected bases instead of streaking by with daring innovation.
Larry Ratliff - San Antonio Express-News
The Incredibles is the finest of Pixar combined with the best parts of Spider-Man, Superman and Batman...plus it's pretty damn funny too.
Scott Weinberg - eFilmCritic.com
A visually thrilling experience.

The Incredibles is Spy Kids by way of the Jetsons, with that reliable Pixar blend of intelligence and beautiful craftsmanship.
Mary F. Pols - Contra Costa Times
At 115 minutes, this is the longest computer-animated cartoon ever, and the setup might test the patience of younger viewers. But what a payoff!
M.E. Russell - Oregonian
Hilarious, slightly scary and endlessly inventive.
John Hartl - MSNBC
An exceptional film in many ways.
Joe Baltake - Sacramento Bee
Another instant classic.

It's witty, clever and pushes the technical limits of computer animation but it's as much an imitator as it is an innovator.
Louis B. Hobson - Jam! Movies
...sounds an alarm about the perils of conformity, particularly if being one of the crowd means having to deny your true nature. ... The Incredibles live up to their billing.
James Sanford - Kalamazoo Gazette
I had a heck of a time...I guarantee that money spent here is money spent wisely.
Karina Montgomery - Cinerina
A real banshee of zip and zoom (and often terrific design), The Incredibles takes off excitingly whenever it moves fast.
David Elliott - San Diego Union-Tribune
Bird has big shoes to fill - those of Pixar fave John Lassetter - with his latest venture...boy, does he fill them.
Robin Clifford - Reeling Reviews
It's funny, dramatic, even heroic: "The Incredibles" largely lives up to its name. But you'll still leave the film feeling that Pixar left something on the table.
David Foucher - EDGE Boston
Bottom line, The Incredibles has some great funny moments, but it also tells a decent story - and that's the catch when making any kind of movie.
Kevin Carr - 7M Pictures
In addition to being riotously funny, The Incredibles is also extremely exciting.
Jeff Vice - Deseret News, Salt Lake City
The folks at Pixar Animation Studios can't seem to make a bad movie.
Forrest Hartman - Reno Gazette-Journal
When no one's special, everyone starts navel-gazing and feeling arrogant, rejecting opposition, diversity, and responsibility.
Cynthia Fuchs - PopMatters
- Baltimore Sun
A novel and surprisingly wry helping of big-screen comic-book life.
Robert Denerstein - Denver Rocky Mountain News
By far the best of the CGI-animated films in the Disney canon, a wondrous and exciting spectacle that is just as enticing narratively as it is visually.

Like the little boy in The Incredibles who hangs around, slack-jawed, just to see what his superhero neighbours will do next, kids can't seem to get enough of this hyperactive carry-on.

Succeeds not only as a straight-forward action picture with suspense and excitement, but also as a touching and funny story about the importance of family and individuality.

Simply put, The Incredibles is!
Michael A. Smith - Nolan's Pop Culture Review
[Pixar's] first feature to lack the winsome pizzaz that makes for mandatory repeat viewing...(but will still) entertain enough to justify the price of a movie ticket.

An epic battle between conformity and exceptionality in The Incredibles, which will be catnip for superhero buffs and a great time at the movies for everyone else.
Peter Canavese - Groucho Reviews
still indicative of a genre in its infancy, nowhere near as steadfastly classic as the cream of the cell-animated crop. Brilliant stuff, but not outstanding.
Joe Utichi - FilmFocus
Despite first-rate CGI animation and some clever atomic 50s-style art direction, [it] commits the worst cinematic sin of all, it's tepid.
Andrea Chase - Killer Movie Reviews
