Synopsis


Sky High
An ordinary teenager finds out he's not so ordinary after all in this comedy-adventure. Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) has his share of anxieties about starting high school, but once he arrives on campus, he discovers he's attending Sky High, a special learning facility for the children of superheroes. Will realizes his father is actually super-human crime fighter Captain Stronghold (Kurt Russell), while his mom is fellow champion Josie Jetstream (Kelly Preston). However, in Will's first few days at school, Coach Boomer (Bruce Campbell) is unable to discover any superior abilities in him, meaning that instead of joining the school's budding heroes, he's been relegated to the ranks of the lowly sidekicks. In time, Will discovers he happens to have super strength after all, but will he learn to hone his new gifts in time to fend off the bullies at school, get the girl of his dreams, and save his folks from a longtime nemesis? Sky High also features Lynda Carter, Dave Foley, and Kevin McDonald. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Decent enough Disney family entertainment

    As a comic book fan, I've been meaning to see this for the longest time. I finally picked up a copy to watch. It's not bad, but there's nothing about it that makes it great and memorable. For adults and geeks, it's fun to see Kelly Preston, Lynda Carter and Bruce Campbell in the film as well as Kurt Russell back to doing a Disney family film. The concept is sound, but the execution is just okay. But it is entertaining.

    A great film with a surprisingly wonderful underlying example of family values and relationships! If you're a Kurt Russell fan, you've probably already seen this movie... If not, you'll definitely want to get it into your movie queue! Great action/fight scenes between the "super" powers! This movie was recently named by Movie Guide as one of the top best family films!

    A story of heroes

    I enjoyed this movie for what it is. A story of young heroes, learning their powers and making friends. It's nothing filled with large amounts of action, but certainly worth a watch with the younger children in your family.... or the young at heart.

    this movie was imaginitive, funny and entertaining- my 6 yr old son and nephew LOVE it! And it'sone i'm happy to watch with them. it also has some great lessons for kids (deals with not fitting in, standing up for yourself and your friends, etc.). i'd recomend it to anyone with kids, especially boys. kurt russell and dave foley are hilarious!

    Picture Format is Not Theatrically Accurate

    Posted

    This is a good movie. Unfortunately, this full-screen dvd version alters the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1 to 1.33:1, creating a different picture than what was originally seen in the theater (basically you lose 50% of the image in every scene!). Buy the widescreen version instead!

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Sure this movie is kind of childish, but what do you expect from disney? That aside this is a pretty amazing movie, it will have you laughing, warming up to the characters and basically happy all around in no time. Deffinately worth watching.

    Good for the Fam

    'Sky High' is good mainly because of Kurt Russell's performance. This is a movie for the whole family to watch, with plenty of stuff that even adults will enjoy. Recommended, but make sure to buy this widescreen version, not the trimmed down pan & scan.

    Bought it to add to my Library collection at work (I'm an elementary Librarian). The best part of this movie for me is Lynda Carter playing the principal and her comment about "not being Wonder Woman" LOL!
