MR. AND MRS. INCREDIBLE (2011) movie review

Mr. & Mrs. Incredible (2011) (1st viewing) d. Kok, Vincent (China)

A pleasingly raucous spin on the superhero mythos much the same way as the similarly titled Pixar flick, only in a non-animated, feudal China setting. (Yeah, I realize I just cut/pasted what I wrote above – sue me.) Louis Koo and Sandra Ng star as a pair of retired do-gooders who enjoy their easygoing everyday married lives, but when a martial arts competition comes to town, it brings a wealth of strife into the mix. With quarreling sect leaders and attractive ingĂ©nue assistants, it’s not long before the formerly masked marvels are either at each others’ throats or fighting back to back. Breezy and enjoyable Asian fantasy fun.
