I enjoyed this sequel as much as the original, perhaps even a tad more. The plot was clever, the jokes and sight gags were both fun and amusing while the villain’s identity was kept a secret until the last third of the movie. New Supers are introduced, and some have the most ludicrous “super powers” you can imagine (reminds me of the movie Mystery Men with Ben Stiller). The other storyline is about baby Jac-Jac and his emerging multiple super powers. His time with auntie Edna is delightful. All of this is served up with a nostalgic 1950’s retro-future vibe that pays homage to the old Superman TV show or Flash Gordon episodes. If I fault the script, it has a few dialog expositions scenes that may have your little ones losing focus, but overall, the film is a smash-boom-bang hit.
Highly recommended for the whole family!
Pixar animation is almost always perfect, and this movie is no disappointment. Both the picture and sound are demo worthy and are all but guaranteed to keep you and your kids eyes glued to the action on the screen. The colors are bold and often brilliant. The sound is remarkably all encompassing and clear. Be aware that some scenes include flashing lights during the mesmerizing sequences and they can be a potential hazard if you are prone to photosensitivity or seizures.
Besides a digital copy and BD, there are lots of incredible extras: 10 deleted scenes, Heroes and Villains, Superbaby, Strong Coffee-a lesson on animation with Brad Bird, Super Stuff-design challenges, and 2 mini-movies: Auntie Edna and Bao.
