100 thoughts on “Film Theory: Can You SUE a Superhero? (Disney Pixar’s The Incredibles)

  1. Matt Pat super power gives mind blowing Siri is it in the end it’s kind of good at games sometimes above that sometimes

  2. 2:31 even defending yourself you could be sued out of existence. if someone or party wanted to, they could plan to conditioning people not to defend themselves out of fear of legal action. as self defense is the lowest level of heroicsism so when one goes to stop a school shooter and succeeds "imagine how worse it is" i hear the indoctrinated speak. as not only is it self defense but it also defends others who could die with inaction.

    " Whilst men are linked together, they easily and speedily communicate the alarm of any evil design. They are enabled to fathom it with common counsel, and to oppose it with united strength. Whereas, when they lie dispersed, without concert, order, or discipline, communication is uncertain, counsel difficult, and resistance impracticable. Where men are not acquainted with each other’s principles, nor experienced in each other’s talents, nor at all practiced in their mutual habitues and dispositions by joint efforts in business; no personal confidence, no friendship, no common interest, subsisting among them; it is evidently impossible that they can act a public part with uniformity, perseverance, or efficacy. In a connection, the most inconsiderable man, by adding to the weight of the whole, has his value, and his use; out of it, the greatest talents are wholly unserviceable to the public. No man, who is not inflamed by vain-glory into enthusiasm, can flatter himself that his single, unsupported, desultory, unsystematic endeavors, are of power to defeat the subtle designs and united cabals of ambitious citizens. When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.

    this is the original form of the "evil succeeds when good people do nothing" quote, Einstein said something similar too

    "The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing." Albert Einstein

    Other quotes by other people have the same message

    “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” Thomas Jefferson.

     “The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance.” Andrew Marshall.

  3. I never realized how darkThe Incredibles is. I mean, the first 10 minutes of the movie has a suicide attempt!!!

  4. 7:50 hold up … mattpat likes Hamilton? I mean I know it’s just a reference but …. mattpat , I love you ou when more know

  5. matpat i think you missed something in this, i must state that i am not american and a lot of this is based off what i know about my own laws in Australia. while you can't be sued for damages when helping someone but when i took my first aid course they warned us that you become responsible for them. the red cross states "Once a first aider begins to provide first aid, a duty of care is established and the first aider then has a legal obligation to fulfil the duty of care." so if you help someone who fainted and wait with them till the ambulance arrived then yeah you can't be sued but Mr incredible didn't. Mr incredible saved the guys life and then dragged him into the corner to chase bomb voyage and left him there without calling the ambulance or even bracing his neck to reduce injury and this can get you into trouble. so in this case you might be able to sue him even today cause you don't do everything you can to protect his neck and get him medical attention, meaning they could argue that it was a lot worse then it could of been if he had stayed. like i said i'm not american and i'm not up to date on american laws but i would imagine that the US would have similar laws. if anyone knows more about this i would be fascinated to hear about it.

  6. Did you know that if a public bus hits you, that youre to blame bwcause you 'are supoosed to obow of all tue bus routes. And that your ignorance is at fault'?

  7. okay but can we talk about how incredibles opened up with some guy trying to commit suicide and everyone was like 'eh no big deal'

  8. I can't believe that there is a person who would ruin someone for helping them out and taking them to the hospital.

  9. That opening looked like one of sid's toys…Watch the original toy story, then you'll see what i mean

  10. The UK version of the good samaritan law (called Social Action Responsibility and Heroism) was only truly a "law" in 2015. before that we did have something trying to help people it was kind of hit or miss if you would be found guilty or not.

  11. Can we talk about how MatPat kept looking at that stock male image? I think there's a shopping going on here 😂

  12. is it bad that I sometimes use ur channels film and game theorists for studying sometimes

  13. honestly mr incredible didnt have a choice. if he doesnt save the man im sure ppl will criticize him for being cruel

  14. Less fun thought about changing laws: Up until the mid seventies German laws were ignorant of rape in marriage, which means a husband could force himself on his wife or vice versa (albeit much more rare of course) without the case even making it to court

  15. I remember how when I was about 3 or 4 years old I was terrified of the Pixar lamp. Now I realize it’s because it kills the I and stares at us like it’s saying * YOU’RE NEXT *

  16. There was that story when IT was illegal to touche The Queen so on a boting acident The Queen her daughter and her Grande daughter drowned because The law. Bruh 😑

  17. Am I the only person thinking that the most scary thing in the USA the Guns are. Like please explain me how this is good and can protect people.

  18. Peng yu: here I saved you! No need to thank m-
    Woman: I’m gonna sue you
    Peng yu: b*TCh wHAt?
    Court: we blame you
    Peng yu: NANI ?

  19. So you're telling me that if I, hypothetically, had superhero abilities AND a skin tight super suit, I'd be legally covered if I hypothetically played superhero? Asking for a friend.

  20. But does the Samaritan act protect people trying to stop bank robberies? Also this woulnd't apply to the Sokovia Accords right? Because that was made by the UN and not by the American government. You can sue supers just not in America.

  21. Good Samaritan law: Exist
    Incredible's government: Im gonna pretend i didnt see that
    Good Samaritan law: am I a joke to you?

  22. Imagine every time MatPat jumped on the Pixar’s “I,” the editor(s) added a scream from MatPat in previous videos.
    One Jump: AHH
    Two Jumps: UUGH
    Three Jumps: AHHHHHHHHH

  23. Matt pat: superhero’s are protected and this movie is wrong

    Me: oh ok

    Matt pat: actually nvm those laws were before the movie took place and Pixar was right all along

    Me:ok then why did you say that?

    Matt pat: murmurs I needed the vid to be 10:00 min

    Me: oh I guess we all have to get our money somehow … so understandable

  24. WAIT JUST ONE MINUTE!
    After re-watching this video I felt something at the back of my mind, and so I looked it up out of interest and found out that suicide acts were ILLEGAL BEFORE THE SUICIDE ACT IN 1961!(Had to rewrite it because I thought I was wrong about the date) But anyways, it would've been okay for mr.incredible to save the man who tried commiting suicide BECAUSE IT WAS THE LAW

  25. breaking news: japan no 1 hero, symbol of peace, which happen to have american nasionality. Unleash atack compareable to small nuclear bomb in the middle of city while fighting villain

  26. But wait MatPat! (I feel the need to say something and to "add" to the youtube community) You said that it would still be hard to sue the government after 1946 and according to https://www.businessinsider.com richer people commit suicide less. So the man who attempted suicide probably wouldn't be able to scrape up enough money to sue the government.

  27. Suicide was also made illegal a year before or the same year(need to brush up on my suicide law) as the incredible was set
