There is no longer a need for you to obtain a superpower to determine whether or not Incredibles 2 is a good film, now that the wizards over at review aggregator site, Rotten Tomatoes, have conjured up a rating. As it stands, Incredibles 2 has officially received the Certified Fresh rating on the site, where it currently possesses a critics score of 95 and is rumored to have an audience score that is even higher.
Incredibles 2 is the latest of a long line of Pixar films to receive the Fresh rating, harkening back to their first film, Toy Story. In fact, of all Pixar films, only two of them failed to receive it, Cars 2 and Cars 3.
This score should also have special significance for director Brad Bird, whom by this point, has directed three Pixar films, all of which have been certified Fresh, which not only makes him one of Pixar’s most successful directors, but one of the greatest animation directors in the history of film.
Here is an official synopsis, courtesy of Disney:
Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2”–but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again–which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
The fact that Incredibles 2 possesses a Fresh rating bears good tidings towards its future at the box office.
I don’t know about you, but I look forward to seeing it!
