Editorial Reviews

From Robert Rodriguez, the hit-making director of SPY KIDS, comes a fun family adventure starring Taylor Lautner (THE TWILIGHT SAGA) in his first lead role alongside Hollywood favorites David Arquette, Kristin Davis and George Lopez. Everyone always knew that Max had a wild imagination . . . but no one believed that his wildest creations – a boy raised by watchful great white sharks and a girl with the force of a volcano – were real! Now, these two pint-sized action heros will show Max that even an ordinary kid has what it takes to be extraordinary!

I'm surprised at all the adults bashing this movie because THEY didn't like it! What I loved about this movie is that it does seem to cater entirely to childrens fantasies. I've seen many children watch it (because during my sons' obsession with it he had to show it to everyone!)and they were all mesmerized by it. I've even enjoyed it. The 3-D version is pointless though because unless you tweak your tv just right it is poor quality. Don't bother with that, just watch the 2-D version that is on the same disk. It's still great in 2-D. Little girls like this movie too, but a must have if you have little boys!

This story is great for children under 10 years old, but for teens and adults, the 3-D is the fun part of this movie, and it's quite fun.

I own the other versions of this movie, too. But, I like this one the best, because the 3-D is sharp and colors are stunning.

Honestly, this is one of those few times when a movie is much better looking on DVD than it was in the theaters.

This movie played in theaters in Anaglyph format (red/cyan 3-D glasses), which distorted the colors and lessened the 3-D effect. I'd give it a bad review in the theaters. The other DVD release of this movie was also Red/Cyan 3-D. But, this particular DVD release is HQFS (High Quality Field Sequential), a MUCH better 3-D format .

You need a 3-D viewing system (like ASIN: B00005QW5S ) to watch it. (LCS shutter glasses, not red/blue glasses.)

One last important note: The description says this DVD is in Full Screen (not Wide Screen). Truth is that it actually is some form of wide screen. It is not as cropped as a real Full Screen disc. If played in full screen mode, characters are slightly thinner than usual. When I put my system in Wide Screen mode, this DVD it looks more correct. There is one viewing wide screen resize mode of my system in which it looks perfect. Normally, I wouldn't buy a DVD unless it is labelled Wide Screen, but this DVD is an exception.

Certainly, if you love 3-D and haven't seen this movie in the theaters, then I'd recommend this DVD. I saw this movie in the theaters (and didn't like it). But, I am much more fond of it on this DVD. I'd give it a 3 for story. but a 4 for 3-D.

Wow, many reviewers have really bashed this film. We just bought the DVD for our daughter, and she absolutely loved it. After having watched the special features section detailing how the Rodriguez family devised the story, my daughter is writing and illustrating multitudes of original, imaginary scenes of her own. As an adult, I actually enjoyed the movie very much. Sure, it's a step away from reality, but it has revitalized imagination and creativity in our household. Dreaming is a very bizarre and peculiar phenomenon, so I think the pure imagination depicted in the film is justified.

I haven't seen a movie so imaginative and entrancing since the first time I saw Gene Wilder as Willie Wonka on HBO as a seven-year-old boy.

It's corny and cheesy, but give it a chance and try not to be negatively biased by scathing critiques. Watch it with your kids. They'll enjoy your company. You might like it!

Sharkboy and Lavagirl is like a painting without 3D glasses. Put on the glasses and you experience a magical reality where dreams change your world and where the challenge is to overcome the nightmares.

This movie is as much about facing fears and positive thinking as it is about special effects. It is especially impressive in this regard, with witty dialogue and spontaneous and unexpected turns of event.

I found Lavagirl to be a beautiful character with a loving heart and playful outlook on life. She sometimes forgets her powers and they use this for comic effect. She seems a little lost at first, as if seeking her greater purpose all while enjoying a playful combative interchange with Sharkboy.

The scenes take place in a school and in a magical dream reality. The characters move from real life to dreams in an instant and you can fall asleep and dream up a new reality in your dreams. It is all very fun and I found myself laughing throughout at the innocent humor and creative surprises. I think adults will get the "brainstorm" joke even more than children would and there is plenty of humor for adults and kids to enjoy. I also thought there were some amazingly profound moments during the conversations and if you realize what it would take to say those lines to someone who is a bully, that in itself should impress.

On the fun visual side, lands of cookies and milk present culinary adventures as Lavagirl, Sharkboy and Daydreamer Max float through a world on a huge chocolate chip cookie. Then you have a volcano and worlds of imagination reminiscent of a theme park ride. There is a mildy dark nemesis who is the bully and he aggravates the situation by appearing in Max's dreams. He steals Max's diary.

I saw this movie on the first day it came out with my friends. Which we are all 14. We thought it would be fun to see a 3-D movie. So of course we saw all the comercials and went to see it.

The movie deals with a young boy named Max. I don't know what age he is but he sure does dream alot. He dreams so much that he creates his own little world named Planet Drool. From the title of his world you should now be able to tell how old you should be when you see this. Max dreams very often to escape his everyday life which is full of mean people. His parents fight all the time and his class thinks he is crazy. Well except for this one girl who is also plays a role in his dream.

Max creates two characters named Shark Boy and Lava Girl. He says that Shark boy lost his dad when he was young by a tornado. He and his dad were swept out to sea but were seprated. But just so happens, sharks realize that this boy is the boy that used to take care of them. (This is where I laughed out loud). The sharks started speaking and decided to raise the boy. He became Shark Boy and grew gills, fins, and whatnot. Which I found disturbing. My friends did also. Oh yeah, Lava Girl has powers of a volcano. She is full of heat. She comes to Max's house one day and tells him that she needs to take Shark Boy back to planet drool to help her save it.

So back to the present time, Max is still telling his class about Shark Boy and Lava Girl. And they still think he is nuts. Especially this one mean kid named Minus. He really doesn't like Max for some reason and you'll find out why if you watch the movie (which I am still not so sure you should). But this is where the movie takes a turn when the real Shark Boy and Lava Girl smash in to save the day.
