Could this be Pixar's greatest movie? It's no mean feat to even be considered for their Top 5, but
is a credible contender for the pole position.
The animation is sublimely stylised, and Michael Giacchino's jaunty, Bond-riffing score sets the tone perfectly. The invention here is astounding, with all manner of secret lairs, diverse superpowers, and the best ever advice against wearing a cape.
But it's the spot-on family dynamic that really makes
stand out, as frustrated Bob struggles to hold down an insurance job, the kids try to hide their powers at school, and Helen does her best to hold the family together.
Fans have since screamed out for a sequel, but would an add-on ruin the perfectly-formed wonder of this standalone classic?
