Twitter Capsule: They paid a story supervisor and two "story managers" and wound up with this? Antic, redundant, virtually charmless.

Second Capsule: Cool of Incredibles 2 to build its plot around Elastigirl taking leadership and cracking puzzles but still give Craig T. Nelson top billing.

VOR:   Somehow The Incredibles seemed cut out for a greater destiny but in fact this is just another hectic, underthought cash-grab sequel.
