Zabrina Maultsby PSY 2302 11465 Film Analysis #2 November 29, 2009 The animated Pixar movie, “The Incredibles,” is an action packed picture which portrays a typical American family who just so happens to have alter ego personalities with super human strengths. Mr. Incredible, the main character is one of the best superheroes in the world. The movie begins showing Mr. Incredible enjoying an awesome life of crime fighting with his best friend Frozone, and he's fiancé Elastigirl.
