The Incredibles, A Review

Updated on September 27, 2007

Fifteen years ago, superheroes walked the streets of Metroville, performing acts of great heroism and inspiring many to follow their example. However, the Supers were forced into retirement and government-funded anonymity when a string of lawsuits by disgruntled people they'd helped led to political and public outcry. Bob Parr used to be known as Mr. Incredible, one of the greatest and strongest Supers, now lives a normal life as a suburban insurance agent. He still yearns for the good old days eventhough his wife, formerly Elastigirl, Helen has moved on and is more concerned with raising their children - Dashiell (who runs super-fast), Violet (who can turn invisible) and baby Jack-Jack. His chance comes when he receives a mysterious phone call about a top-secret assignment regarding a powerful machine attacking Nomanism Island. But all is not as it seems. Bob will find himself trapped by Syndrome, an embittered enemy who in his youth used to refer himself as "Incrediboy" and once idolized Mr. Incredible. Bob was about to lose hope but unknowingly, Elastigirl, with their kids hiding in the plane, came to his rescue. And now, the whole family must reveal themselves to save him and countless innocents.

Character - Setting :

Characters :

Bob Parr or Mr. Incredible - the main character of the story. One, of the greatest and powerful Supers.

Helen Parr or Elastigirl - his wife and has an elastic body.

Dashiell - their son who runs superfast.

Violet - their daughter who can make herself invisible and shield herself from enemies.

Jack-jack - their youngest son. A super also.

Buddy Pine / Incrediboy / Syndrome - the nemesis of the story.

Setting : City of Metroville, 20th century.

Climax

Bob Parr was captured by his enemy, Syndrome, and a nemesis robot created by the latter that was set to destroy innocent people. Helen now had to rush to Syndrome's hideout and save Bob. The couples' kids, flew in together with their mother by hiding in the plane to help rescue their father. The whole family then flew to Metroville and together they fought the robot unleashed by Syndrome who tried to destroy humanity.

Problem :

At the start, the problem was the characters' struggle to live a normal life but was hard because they have super human powers. This led to a more serious problem when Bob Parr, was trapped by his embittered enemy, Syndrome, and his family was faced to save him and the whole humanity for the destruction of Syndrome's created nemesis.

Solution to the Problem :

Mr. Incredible missed his old heroic life so he secretly took this offer from a mysterious employer in order to engage in challenging and dangerous jobs. These jobs required him to use his super powers again. Later on, he was set on a trap by the same employer, his old fan who had taken a grudge against him. His family upon knowing that his life was in danger, were forced to save him and together, they fought Syndrome as well as his created robot that was programmed to destroy the city. Because of their combined forces, they then defeated the enemy and then went back to living a normal life again.

Character I like the most.

Helen Parr or Elastigirl as she has the most confident and stable character. She is able to balance and adapt to having a normal life and using her superpowers if the situation arises. Her ability to always stay calm and make intelligent decisions in times of stressful situations is very impressive.

Insight into human nature.

In the society where we belong, we must be able to adapt and adjust to our environment. We may have exceptional talents and skills, however, we have to refrain ourselves from showing them off as it might get us into trouble or may result to bad consequences. Control and self-discipline is very important. Also, these God-given talents and skills have to be used for the common good.
