Incredibles 2 : More Subversive Garbage

On the surface, “Incredibles 2” seems like entertaining family hokum. The characters of the Incredibles themselves, especially the mom and Dad characters voiced by Holly Hunter and Craig T. Nelson, are well-written and entertaining. There are some action scenes, especially the one at the end, that are done well. That doesn’t excuse the film’s mistakes. First of all, having Samuel L. Jackson clearly play himself is distracting and took me out of the picture. Secondly, the mom is so much better than the dad at everything, from being a superhero to menial housework and raising the kids that the film comes off as bizarrely anti-male. Thirdly, I know this is a kids’ picture, but the motivation of the villainess makes absolutely no sense. In the film, superheroes are illegal and unpopular. So why bring them back into fashion when they’re already gone? Next, why are there so many trannies in this movie? Both family friend Edna and the villainess of the film are clearly transsexual, which makes the film both feminist and anti-feminist at the same time. It’s feminist because it’s supposed to be women saving the world and shit like that, but it’s anti-feminist because of all the trannies and the fact that Mom is too stupid to figure out what’s going on until almost too late. And finally, of course, there’s the fact that this is approximately the 20th superhero movie of the year, and if you’re not sick of superheroes, you’re probably not reading this. I am old enough to remember when it was OK to be male, when instead of these superhero crapfests we got cool movies like “No Way Out” and “Rambo III.” Now all we get is this comic-book and animated crap with their politically correct messages that don’t even make any sense. If you want to send a message to Hollywood, stop blindly pursuing brainless films like “The Incredibles 2.”
