Movie Review: ****The Incredibles (2004)

The world of the Incredibles is fascinating.  We have a family, trying to live in obscurity, even with their super powers.  This is hard to do sometimes.  It is also hard to give up a previous life and try to be "normal."  Bob Parr aka Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) is faced with this problem.  When he has the chance to get back into the game, he takes the opportunity, unbeknown to his wife Helen Parr aka Elastigirl (Helen Hunt) and kids.  He goes off to an island to fight a villain robot.  However the robot is such that it learns from its opponent.  Syndrome (Jason Lee) is jealous of super heroes, and wants to extract revenge for being rejected.  He has been killing Supers with his robots, and has his eye on Mr. Incredible.  Mr Incredible has some success, but is captured by Syndrome.  Elastigirl discovers where he is, and is coming to the rescue.
The parent child interactions are well done.  All three children eventually have their own unique super powers and personalities.  Dash is fast, Violet creates protective bubbles, and Jack Jack discovers fire.  Another character Lucius Best aka Frozone (Samuel Jackson) is a family friend, and helps with their adventures.  The funniest line of the movie is when the monster is coming and he calls to his wife, "Honey, Where's my super suit?"
