Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Harmless family comedy with welcomely loopy asides.
Fresh: Smartly written and sprightly played, Sky High satisfies with a clever commingling of spoofy superheroics, school-daze hijinks, and family friendly coming-of-age dramedy.
Fresh: My 12-year-old self would have liked this movie a lot. The 25-year-old me likes it a bit more than he cares to admit.
Rotten: Sky High may set a record for ripping off more movies in just over an hour and a half than any other film in history.
Sky High Soars!!!!
This movie revolves around Will Stronghold, a young teen who is the child of the two greatest heroes in America. He is set to go to Sky High, a school for all children with superpowers, one small problem...his powers haven't shown up. Will is forced into the sidekick program and trying to deal with how to tell his parents he may be just a normal teenager. When the son of his fathers arch enemy picks a fight with Will in the cafeteria His powers finally show up. Now it is time for Will to make a choice, will he stay with the sidekicks or take the hero track and...who should he take to the Homecoming dance?!? This is a great family film for kids and adults.
Good for all ages
I saw this movie in the theaters with my kids. I was very pleasantly suprised with it. I have since bought it and have watched it again. I am not a huge fan of the superhero genre and I loved this movie.
Very Good Movie
This was a very good movie... surprisingly. At first, I thought it was going to be a typical kids' movie, but then I watched it, and it was actually good. You might be surprised after you actually see it for yourself. Plus, any fan of The Aquabats will watch this movie just to see the cameos in the movie (there are Aquabats posters and stickers in the kid's room, and during the special features the director (or whoever it is) is wearing an Aquabats shirt). This movie is NOT a waste of time, and is worth watching.
