    Mr. Incredible is a superhero; or he used to be, until a surge of lawsuits against superheroes submitted by the people they`ve saved forced the government to hide them in witness protection programs so they could lead normal, anonymous lives. Now known exclusively by his secret identity, Bob Parr, he lives with his wife Helen, formerly Elastigirl, and their three children Violet, Dash, and Jack Jack. He works as an insurance claims specialist, and he`s fed up with his pushy boss and his immoral profession, but his wife`s worked too hard to build a normal life for her family to abide his nostalia for heroism. When Mr. Incredible`s offered the chance to play the role of hero again by a mysterious informant, he jumps at the opportunity, but when it turns out to be a trap set by an old nemesis he had a hand in corrupting, the whole family must reveal themselves to save Mr. Incredible and countless innocents.

    9 / 10
    Another great animated comedy from the guys and gals at Disney. This time, the movie`s theme is super-heros - pros and cons. :)
    The characters are truly funny (some tend to be semi-slapstick, still they deliver).
    The video transfer is excellent. There are no compression signs and the direct digital source to DVD transfer is of reference quality. The colors are well saturated and the CG animation is simply superb.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is explosive. The surrounds are constantly used and provide a very nice sound envelope.
    The character`s dubbing is excellent and Disney proves again that voice talents can make or break a movie. This time - they make it.
    The menus are beautifully animated with sound.
    The extras include 2 commentaries, 3 short movies, a behind the scenes featurette, 6 deleted scenes (including an alternate openning scene), hero files, some (deliberate) bloopers and a picture gallery.
    Bottom line - a great animated feature with an excellent disc to match.
