The Incredibles 2 by Brad Bird

I found this movie interesting, if not always entertaining. The mom loves her job but worries about her family. The dad is doing his best to deal with the kids though they are driving him crazy. The stereotypes are funny when played off the super powers. Mine combines the moodiness, neediness, and volatility of the three kids. The enemy Screen Slaver says we spend too much time in front of screens and relying on superheroes makes us weak and passive. I was sympathetic to the enemy’s point of view, if not the misanthropic approach. What was this trying to say?
