SKY HIGH (USA 2005)

Ben Meyers’ rating—3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Sky High—completely mastered for the child—employs the talents of Kurt Russell for a fair to middling afternoon piece of entertainment.

Storyline

Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano), the son of two superpower parents, does not have superpowers and is relegated to the role of Hero Support when he begins ninth grade. Through a series of events, Will begins to find himself and in finding himself discovers who his true friends are while uncovering a fiendish plot.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s not the best superhero film out there, but definitely works for the young child needing entertainment.
