Movie review: 'Incredibles 2,' awesome, action-packed superhero sequel was worth the wait

Parents need to know that the highly anticipated sequel "Incredibles 2" picks up immediately after "The Incredibles," following the Parr family – Bob/Mr. Incredible (voiced by Craig T. Nelson), Helen/Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dash (Huck Milner), and baby Jack-Jack (Eli Fucile) – as they again use their powers to rescue the people of their city. From there, the movie explores the Parrs' family dynamics and eventually pits them against a villain named Screenslaver. Like the original, the sequel has frequent, intense superhero action/violence (large-scale destruction, frequent peril, weapons, laser beams shooting out of a character's eyes, a scary fight with lots of flashing lights, etc.). Someone is shot in a flashback (the act itself isn't shown), and there are references to dead parents and several fight sequences that could be too intense for very young or those who are sensitive to violence that puts kids or parents in danger. But there's also lots of humor, even in the action sequences, as well as themes of teamwork, courage, communication, and perseverance – not to mention how easy it is to be manipulated by the screens all around us. Expect a bit of kissing, hugging, and flirting; a little drinking by adults; a character with a long-stemmed cigarette; and a few uses of words like "sucks" and "jerks."

'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' is an improvement, which doesn't make it necessary

Dinosaurs: Keep them alive or kill them off? It's a question that haunts the human characters in between fireball-dodging cardio workouts in "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom," the spectacularly ho-hum new entry in Hollywood's longest-running parable about the fatal idiocy of messing with Mother Nature. At this point in the game – five films deep in a franchise that has grossed more than $2 billion worldwide over a quarter-century – that question might seem less applicable to the dinosaurs than to the movies themselves.
