Experience the wonder of the film the New York Times calls "a clever hybrid of HARRY POTTER and THE INCREDIBLES" as Disney's SKY HIGH soars on Blu-ray(TM)'s high definition disc. The fun and excitement reach new heights in this extraordinary format. The son of legendary crime fighters Commander and Jetstream, Will Stronghold has huge expectations as he enters a high-tech school known for molding the heroes of tomorrow. But with no apparent superpowers of his own, is Will destined to be a mere sidekick? Watch in eye-popping 1080p as Will discovers his true strengths, and experience the awesome power of 5.1 48 kHz, 16-bit uncompressed audio. Heroic adventure truly takes flight with Blu-ray High Definition!

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" 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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hilarious movie the whole family will love April 25, 2006
Format:DVD
I rented Sky High for the kids and it turns out I was probably the one that liked it the most. Sky High is the place where future super heroes go to school. There, they learn how to be heroes (or side kicks) and go to classes like Mad Science and PE (save the civilian is a popular game).

Will Stronghold is a typical kid trying to live down the fame of his two superhero parents. Kurt Russell is great is the cocky dad who wants and expects his son to be a great super hero as well. Kelly Preston is pretty but really doesn't have much to do.

Will goes to school knowing he has yet to develop any superpowers. Some of the best moments are when each kid has to display his powers and then be assigned to the hero or sidekick track. Most adults will enjoy all of the super hero jokes. The plot revolves around a typical high school movie plot of the boy falling for the popular girl and ignoring the girl who really likes him.

The plot never gets too serious and instead plays for the jokes. The cast was great, from the high school bad guy Warren Peace, the cute Lela (played by Danielle Panabaker sp?, sure to be a future star), Russell, and cameos by Bruce Cambell and Wonder Woman herself Linda Carter).

Your kids will enjoy this movie and so will the parents. There is nothing offensive in this movie so it is safe for all audiences.
