Description

Bob and his wife Helen used to be among the world's greatest crime fighters, saving lives and battling evil on a daily basis. Fifteen years later, they have been forced to adopt civilian identities and retreat to the suburbs where they live "normal" lives with their three kids, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack. Itching to get back into action, Bob gets his chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top secret assignment. He soon discovers that it will take a super family effort to rescue the world from total destruction.

The Supers are prohibited to rescue people anymore

I will never be ashamed of enjoying superhero movies or animated movies again. This has been a great couple of decades to be a kid.

A wonderful film from beginning to end. Funny, charming, heartwarming, exciting, you name it. Excellent through and through.
LibraryThing member themulhern
Still good. Clever allusions to (I think) Dr. No (the villain's underground lair), "War of the Worlds" (the robots), "The Empire Strikes Back" (the forest chase scenes). Maybe some more to "A Series of Unfortunate Effects" since the children in both form such strikingly similar groups.
