Incredibles 2 – Director, Brad Bird

This is terrible movie and has no reason to exist. I confess that I liked the original film which I found to have a great sense of humour and successfully poked fun at super hero films. It stunned me somewhat to find that the original is now 14 years old. It came out at a time when super hero movies were beginning to dominate the screen and it played with this well. However we are now inundated with such films and they vary from good to awful. This sequel is a very poor reboot I assume with the hope that those who liked the first one will love seeing the lovable family again. Reviews have been positive for the most part but there are some excellent negative reviews around. The risk of sequels is that they simply replay the good bits of the originals rather than taking us anywhere. One reviewer I liked took a crack at Disney who have bought up the rights to many successful franchises and are churning out sequels with a thought only to banking on old fans coming back. It may be a sad future as he says:  Incredibles 2 could be the future; a future in which every movie is polished but beige, beautiful but bland, fun but fawning, amusing but dull. Have to agree.
