Known to the world as superheroes, Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl, Bob Parr and his wife Helen were among the world's greatest crime fighters, saving lives and battling evil on a daily basis. Fifteen years later, they have been forced to adopt civilian identities and retreat to the suburbs to live "normal" lives with their three kids, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack. Itching to get back into action, Bob gets his chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top secret assignment. He soon discovers that it will take a super family effort to rescue the world from total destruction.
Exploding with fun and all-new bonus features available only on Blu-ray, this spectacular 4-disc combo pack is edge-of-your-seat entertainment for everyone.
The Incredibles is not only an exciting, funny film that simultaneously spoofs and revitalizes the superhero genre, it represented a new approach to computer animation. For decades, human characters have proved the most challenging to animate. Walt Disney put his artists through a rigorous training program before they tackled the heroine in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Seventy years later, the humans felt less alive than the toys, ogres, fish, monsters, and bugs in CG films. Audiences recognize the ways humans are supposed to move, and the realism of the CG medium made even subtle flaws distracting and unsettling. Director Brad Bird and his artists developed a cartoonier way of animating humans that proved superior to the stiff, androidlike characters that had populated earlier films. That style of animation has become the industry standard: animators and audiences are happier with the results. The broader style of movement also fit the story of a family of superheroes consigned to mundane mediocrity. When Dash realizes he can run fast enough to skim over water, his glee is almost palpable, while Frozone moves with assured, athletic grace. The exaggerated gestures and expressions of designer Edna Mode play hysterically against her diminutive form. One of Pixar's best films, The Incredibles richly deserved the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. The new extras include a "Filmmakers' Roundtable," an informal and informative discussion with Bird, producer John Walker, and several key artists that feels more spontaneous than standard making-of pieces. Bird insists he didn't realize the artists were turning the villain Syndrome into a caricature of him until it was "too late." The deleted scenes are interesting, but the viewer quickly realizes they were deleted with good reason. A short, but very funny little film explains how "Gary" became the designated honoree for all staff birthday parties owing to a baker's spelling error. A thoroughly entertaining package. (Rated PG: some scary material, cartoon violence, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon
Loved the movie, one of the best animated movies ever. I would've given it 5 stars but it's SOOO EXPENSIVE! That's why I won't buy the movie. Maybe $14.99, definitely not 19.99.Published 3 days ago by sundance

|Really getting tired of 4+ disc editions||
I must be in the minority, because I prefer having all three copies in an edition that costs less than $30. I commute on the train, so the digital copy is perfect on my iPhone. I have a PS3, so the Blu-ray copy is a no-brainer. The PS3 is the only Blu-ray player in the house, so with the other... Read More

|Incredibles - with slipcover?||
I am not sure but I received a copy today without the slip cover that I ordered from Amazon last week. I would be curious to know if anyone has received a copy with the slipcover when ordering from Amazon as of late as well.

The Blu-ray of The Incredibles has DTS-HD Master audio - the best you're going to get.
Is that your concern?
