5.0 out of 5 stars If Only High School Were Really This Super March 6, 2006
Format:DVD
Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) is about to start his first day of high school. He's attending his parent's alma mater, and the pressure to live up to their legacy is huge. See, his parents (Kurt Russell and Kelly Preston) happen to be the biggest superheroes known to mankind. As The Commander and Jetstream, they routinely work together to save the world. But Will has a big problem; he has no super powers of his own.

Will is quickly put in the Sidekick's class, a huge dishonor he tries to keep from his parents. Even so, he quickly makes friends and begins to settle in, even attracting the attention of the beautiful student body president, something unheard of for a freshman in the Sidekick class, or Hero Support if you prefer.

Danger lurks around every corner, however. Will has an arch nemesis on campus and someone is watching the Stronghold's secret lair. Will Will develop any powers to help cope with these problems?

This movie is supposed to be mindless fun for the young and young at heart, and it succeeds mightily. All the actors do a great job, especially the mostly unknown teen cast. The adults in the film have fun with their rolls. Everyone's trying to do a good job but have fun at the same time, and that spirit draws you into the film. I especially enjoyed Lynda Carter's brief appearances as the school principal, and she gets the best line out of the entire movie.

The plot, on the other hand, is fairly predictable for anyone who has seen a Disney family film before. I had most everything figured out before it happened, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the movie for one minute. Being a high school movie, it has many cliches from that genre as well, but with a clever superhero twist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sky High Entertainment March 17, 2006
Format:DVD
OK, I admit it. I am a fan of superhero movies! This was a good one. Not perfect... it is too predictable. However, the kid actors are great. Kurt Russell seemed a bit wooden to me, but the other adults did a great job, and really seemed to be enjoying themselves. A prime example is "Coach Boomer," Bruce Campbell. You'll recognize a lot of other faces here.

My wife and daughter loved this movie too. Our daughter is four, now, and was scared during some of the more intense moments. It is rated PG for some violence. No swearing or sex, of course. This is Disney, after all.

So, all in all a really enjoyable movie. I hope to see a sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Sky High" is a thumb's up for both kids and parents January 23, 2006
Format:DVD
It is always a struggle to find a movie at the video store for "family movie night" that both of my elementary school daughters will enjoy and I will, if not enjoy, be able to tolerate. I have certainly appreciated the effort that many studios have made to make kids' films more enjoyable for parents. When my younger daughter chose "Sky High," I was not terribly optimistic, but Disney actually did a pretty good job making it sort of fun for this GenXer. More importantly, the younger crowd LOVED it.

Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano), the son of two superheroes, Commander (Kurt Russell) and Jetstream (Kelly Preston), is about to start high school. Will is not going to just any high school. As the son of superheroes, he will go to Sky High, where he will follow in is parent's footsteps. However, Will has a secret. He does not have any super powers, so he is relegated to classes for "Sidekick's," and that is obviously a disappointment to his famous father. At Sky High, Will must deal with everything a "normal" kid must face while growing up, but, through a series of typically teen-age blunders, discovers he must also face his parents' greatest nemesis, Royal Pain (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). The future of Sky High and of the entire world depends on Will.

Disney used a lot of great tricks to transcend the generational gap in "Sky High." For GenY, some of the costumes, acting, and special effects were very much reminiscent of the wildly popular, live-action, Saturday morning television show, "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers." What boy born after 1978 was not secretly in love with the Pink Power Ranger portrayed by Amy Jo Johnson? (Confession: When my little sister watched "Power Rangers" a couple of decades ago, I was sort of into the Pink Power Ranger myself!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable family romp with "Super" star power November 27, 2005
Format:DVD
A great pop philosopher once said, "You may leave school but it never leaves you"*, nowhere is that more true than at the high school for the off-spring of superheroes Sky High literally located among the clouds. Although this superhero satire isn't quite as deft as "The Incredibles" or even "Mystery Men" was at its best, it's an enjoyable romp that kids will laugh at and parents won't feel embarrassed to watch. Sure it may come across as a glorified Disney TV movie but what elevates the film above that are the performances of the cast. Will (Michael Angarano) is the son of the greatest superhero the world has ever known; The Commander (Kurt Russell) and Jetstream (Kelly Preston). When not fighting crime this married duo fight the war of real estate sales. When it appears that Will has no superpowers, he's worried that he'll disappoint his dad and end up just relegated to sidekick classes at his new high school Sky High. His worst fears seem a reality when in his first day at school Coach Boomer (the wonderful Bruce Campbell) drops a car on him and the best Will can do is avoid being crushed putting him in the "sidekick" category like his teacher The Commander's former sidekick Mr. Boy (Dave Foley). Now Will not only has to deal with peer pressure, the hazards of dating and razzing from the school bullies he also has to figure out a way to survive as nothing more than a glorified geek. Will discovers resources he didn't think he had when the school, his friends and his family are threatened by a seemingly unstoppable villain.

As usual Buena Vista provides an exceptional crisp transfer. There weren't any analog defects that I could note and, truly, this transfer looks super most of the time.

4.0 out of 5 stars It has Kurt Russell
I'm not sure what else needs to be said after that. This movie has teenage super heros, Kurt Russell being awesome, and some coming of age angst (but not too much). Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first time but still fun
Not the same as when I first saw it 9 years ago, but still fun for the kids. I will say that HD and an LED TV makes this and many other movies hard to watch.
