The Incredibles is...

...pretty damn good. It's a cross between superhero comic and spy thriller, with more than a nod of the head at classic James Bond, all animated with a touch of New Yorker cartoon, Chesley Bonestell spaceships, and pop art children's picture book. In other words, another Pixar triumph.

There's also the usual Pixar movie game of spotting the film references in the shots - which leads to a wonderful segue between the Return of the Jedi speeder bike chase, the Phantom Menace pod race, along with the sequence where the flying boat approaches the Man with the Golden Gun's lair...

One review referred to Craig T Nelson as "unknown in the UK". Harrumph.
