‘Incredibles 2’ Just Premiered: Here Are The First Reactions

incredibles 2

Pixar’s Incredibles 2 premiered in Hollywood last night, which means the social media reactions are already rolling in. The embargo for Incredibles 2 doesn’t lift for most critics until Monday, and I won’t see the movie myself until tomorrow (Update: saw it, agree with a lot of stuff below), so if you can’t wait until then, here are the earliest (spoiler-free) takes.

Let’s start with the most positive:

Of course, not everyone is completely gushing. A few critics who liked Incredibles 2 overall have a few caveats, especially when it comes to how predictable the story is.

I haven’t come across any outright negative reactions (yet), but at least one critic claims Incredibles 2 isn’t as good as the original, a take I predict we’ll see plenty more of in the coming days and weeks.

UPDATE: Here’s where I’m at:

  1. Can’t wait to hear what you think! Not going to lie, none of the trailers or the clips have got me overly exited – the plot looks very predictable and nothing to get excited about – but being a massive Pixar fan, of course I’ll go see it and probably have an enjoyable time 🙂

    • It’s funny because “predictability” somewhat ailed Coco in my opinion, yet that movie worked anyway. I’m hoping this is the same situation.

  2. Are you doing a written review, podcast review, or video review?

    • All three, most likely. My written review is planned to come out this Monday. Then a video review (probably same day) on YouTube. Then I’ll chat even more about it on the Cinemaholics podcast later that week. I’m all over this movie, seriously.

  3. There’s no way it can be better than the original, but that’s fine.

  4. Is that Skyler from the Dcast I see?
