Audio is Terrible

I love this movie and enjoyed seeing it in the theater with my kids. I was so excited to watch this at home with them! Unfortunately, the sound isn't mixed correctly and the volume of the dialog is TERRIBLE!!! I have to turn up the volume to maximum to even hear what they are saying and then have to turn it down when the music starts playing. It's awful and we couldn't even finish watching it. I'm so disappointed and surprised this Disney product is this poor. Hopefully they can work it out and give me another digital copy? Not sure how that works.

it didnt seem like a sequel rather than a disney's adaptation throwing in cliche gender role issues and issues arising from a working mom. I am really regretting seeing this as it has not only broken my heart about not only the incredibles but also disney for not sticking to something that works... seems contrived to make money and not to entertain...

The Parr family is still Incredible 14 years later, but a big warning to anyone prone to seizures
Many Disney movies have earned a place in my heart over the years, but the Incredibles is still one of my top favorites. It's a Superhero/Pixar movie which already sounds amazing, but then you add a family struggling with relatable real life issues, a great villain, an evil plot, and unsolved disappearances with murders, and you get one of the best Pixar movies of all time. The Incredibles 2 takes a somewhat different approach and isn't as dark as the original, but continues exploring all of the wonderful traits and imperfections that made the Parr family Incredible. In this review, I'll go over three important aspects that made this movie great which includes the characters, the story, and the visuals. As a registered Nurse, I do have to warn anyone who is epileptic and prone to having seizures so please read the bottom section below.

Characters- The great news is that most of the original cast is back from the original Incredibles which is great. The only exception being Dash who needed to be recast since unsurprisingly, the original’s voice changed after 14 years. And although Edna and Frozone are also back and better than ever, the real shining gem of the entire movie was Jack-Jack. I am a firm believer that an entire full length Jack-Jack movie would be huge success. Between Bob's baby-sitting mental breakdown, to a showdown with a burglar raccoon, to becoming a human password for Edna Mode, and finally helping to rescue the mother she loves, Jack-Jack had his time to shine in this movie and it was wonderful. Besides the returning characters, there are some newcomer heroes who are introduced as well, some of which have pretty neat powers. Reflux had my favorite line in the entire movie: "Reflux, medical condition or superpower, you decide". The villain is another story which I’ll talk about next.

Story- After 14 years away and with the pressure of creating a worthy sequel, I wasn't sure which direction Pixar would take or if the sequel slump would take a toll. Overall, the Incredibles 2 improved in some areas and came up short in others compared to the original. From a Superhero/Villain perspective, the Incredibles 2 villain and storyline was a bit transparent, straightforward and overall not as interesting or dark as Syndrome was in the original. Also, even though there is enough action to keep most fans interested, the only Incredibles who had decent time dedicated to further showcasing their power and skills were Elastigirl and Jack-Jack. Mr. Incredible, Dash, Violet and Frozone had their moments in the movie but they still didn’t have the same impact as they had in the original. However, the beauty with this movie is that it chose to emphasize and prioritize on the other attributes that make the Incredibles incredible. Where the original movie shined in terms of exploring the Parr's journey to becoming Supers, the Incredibles 2 shined in showing how they continue to grow and bond as a family. Elastigirl having to carry the mantle for the family while Mr. Incredible was forced to make strides as a father was enjoyable to watch. To me, seeing the Parr family continue to grow together as a family was what made this movie a worthy sequel and an excellent family movie.

Visuals- Although it looked great in 2004, one can't help but notice that the original Incredibles was a visual work in progress compared to some of the more modern Pixar movies. Prior to the sequel being announced, I had always wondered what it would be like if The Incredibles had come out in recent years instead. Fast forward to the Incredibles 2, the differences are apparent as the finale of the Underminer battle looked vastly improved when compared to the original. As the movie progressed, so many details in the textures, lighting, facial features, costumes, world elements, and even hair were more realistic and visually stunning the second time around. Watching both movies back to back is sure to be a real testament to the advancements that Pixar has made throughout the years. I can’t wait to see this movie in 4K HDR.

In the end, The Incredibles 2 does a great job at balancing an action movie and a family drama with comedic flare. It chose to lean more towards being a family movie than a Superhero movie, and I was perfectly fine with that. In all honesty, so much more could have gone wrong with this movie than it actually did. By the end, I was impressed with just how good the movie was, and I was also just happy to see my favorite crime-fighting family back on screen. The Incredibles continue to show that they are a Pixar force to be reckoned with, and I expect that we will be seeing more of the Parr family again in the near future.

For those with Seizure- About halfway in the movie there is a scene where Elastigirl attempts to apprehend the Villain Screenslaver in a warehouse. At some point she enters a room with a computer, the entire room lights up in a strobe light fashion, and a fight scene commences. The fight scene in that room lasts a few minutes, and though I am not prone to seizures, my first thought was about those people who are. I was actually a bit disoriented from that scene (which was kind of the point of the lights), but I can actually imagine how much worse that could be for certain people. If you know anyone who is prone to having seizures, please warn them about that scene. I wouldn't go as far as to say that this movie shouldn't be watched if you are prone to seizures, but to just be very prepared for that scene since it can be a trigger.

Digital Quality was poor.
Verified purchase
Don't get me wrong, this movie was fantastic, it was worth the wait for a new adventure with the Incredibles. The Kids and adults all loved it.

However... The sound quality was very poor on multiple devices. I am unsure if it is a problem with the file or what. We tried it on two tvs and the kindle and all three had the volume going down to inaudible mutliple times throughout the film. Now though I search and search, there is no support from amazon for fixing this issue and now that we have watched it it wont let us get our money back and re-download it.

Very unfortunate as the movie is very good, although not so much when you have to adjust the volume constantly.

Audio quality is terrible

The movie itself I thought was fine (4 stars), but I would recommend buying a physical copy and avoid the prime video. I am not sure what happened when it was translated to streaming, but the audio is terrible. It cuts in and out frequently during the movie. I am not sure Amazon will offer a refund, but they should given the quality of the audio makes you miss out on key components of the movie.
