Nathan is a film critic and aspiring author with a true passion for the film industry who hopes his writings will help launch his career.

There are times when you wait a long time for a sequel to a great film only to be let down by either the story or the writing or the directing. The latest Pirates of the Caribbean is a good example of that. Incredibles 2, however, improved on and even surpassed the original in every way. There were fantastic morals weaved into the story that relate to modern day issues all the while avoiding politics and avoiding being preachy. It instead offers both sides of the view and lets you pick which viewpoint you think is right. Ultimately, this is a family film and there's no shortage of laughs and sweet moments to balance out the serious parts.

Incredibles 2 follows the Parr family as they face the consequences of their actions after trying to stop a bank robbery. Superheroes have been deemed illegal because of the collateral damage that results from their attempts to save people and protect their cities. Winston Deavor steps in and takes action, hoping that if he shows the heroes' side of the story then that will change peoples' minds about them. He chooses Elastigirl to be the face of his revolution, leaving Mr. Incredible to be Mr. Mom and take care of their kids. On top of Dash having trouble with his math homework and Violet having boy trouble, Jack-Jack discovers he too has powers. Mr. Incredible has to learn how to save his family before he can return to saving the city.

I loved how honest the film was. It wasn't afraid to show parenting for how stressful it really is and it didn't hold back when it came to Mr. Incredible questioning whether he's truly a good dad or not. While we sadly (and unfairly) live in a world where superheroes don't exist, there were still some great moments in the film that struggling parents can relate to.

The story was brilliant. Every time I thought I knew who the villain was, a twist threw me off track. It wasn't easily predictable, nor was it dull or rehashed material. In a world where three or four superhero movies are dished out per year, Incredibles 2 felt fresh and new. That's one thing that amazes me about Disney/Pixar. They always figure out how to get our attention and surprise us.

In conclusion, I can't praise this film enough. It's fun for the entire family and gives us all some things to think about and ponder on. It has a ton of heart, a lot of laughs, and some fantastic action. I give the film a 4 out of 4.
