Although 14 years have passed, this belated second movie continues right where The Incredibles ended. Superheroes are illegal again, but a wealthy businessman and his techy sister offer to make them popular again. While Elastigirl gets to fight the mysterious villain Screenslaver, Mr. Incredible must stay home and look after the kids. Since the inventive original came out, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and to lesser extent DC Extended Universe) releases have swamped the screens and broken numerous box office records. In this context, the predictable and unnecessary sequel comes too late. However, as an animation this is still smart and highly entertaining.
