“I think Disney misfired with the very poor The Pacifier and had higher expectations from the Herbie movie. But theyu0026#39;ll do surprisingly well with this kids flick, I think. Perhaps we even have a sleeper here.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhen I saw the Sky High trailer I thought I was going to see the next installment of Spy Kids. Okay, there are a lot of crazy special effects in this movie, but the story is actually driven by the nice performances by almost all the actors instead of lots of SFX.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe film is about young Will Stronghold (charming performance by Michael Angarano), son of the two most popular and successful superheroes in the world, The Commander (Kurt Russell) and Jetstream (Kelly Preston). Will is about to go to Sky High, a school especially founded for superheroes, but thereu0026#39;s one problem: he doesnu0026#39;t own any superpower. Instead of being a superhero, his highest goal seems to be the one of sidekick. So how can he survive at school being the son of the world most famous super duo? And how will his parents react when they hear the bad news?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSky High is a very entertaining family movie with lots of good hearted humor. Early in the movie Bruce Campbell (oh yeah!) steals the show as (ex-hero, now teacher) Sonic Boomer, who has a u0026#39;Sorting Hatu0026#39; scene in which he determines which student will go to hero class and which ones will study for sidekick. Kurt Russell gives a great tongue-in-cheek performance as proud daddy who thinks itu0026#39;s great that his son defeats all the bullies at school but has to condemn it in front of his wife. And thatu0026#39;s the opinion of a someone who isnu0026#39;t actually a fan of the actor himself. The original little ideas dry out after the first half of the movie, but who said that all family movies should have Oscar power?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSky High is a movie about friendship, falling in love with the wrong girl, falling in love with the right girl and trying to succeed in your parents footsteps. Very entertaining for the kids, and some nice laughs for parents too (during the Sidekick lessons given by ex-All American Boy for instance: lots a references to the Robin from the Batman TV-series). Great 80u0026#39;s soundtrack as well, with covers from songs by The Smiths, Talking Heads, Tears for Fears and even Till Tuesday and Modern English.”
