Great watch, will watch again, and can recommend.
This is one of the best superhero movies outside of DC and Marvel movies. Not only does it use the silly costumes that I like from comics, but it incorporates it as part of normal life: the world is clearly built to show that Supers are somewhat normal to see, and that there is a community of them. It’s basically Professor X’s school if people treated Mutants like the Avengers.
The immediate problems are in the the casting: there are SO MANY great people, almost everyone is funny and takes to their roles perfectly, but the lead, the focus of the story, is forgettable, and it is completely unbelievable that he would have these girls after him, let alone someone who we’re happy to have powers. And I hate Kurt Russell, but the movie is so good I forget he’s in it until he suddenly appears and smarms it up.
A “coming of age” story, with “high school politics”, and “girl next door” tropes all mixed together is a good recipe, and with super powers to keep it interesting. I think that’s the thing that makes this movie stand out. Using the super powers, the movie is all about SHOW, don’t tell. A lot of movie forget this, overusing narration and dialogue out of place.
The content of the movie is all about meaningful dialogue, showing the world, and how it works. It is also about being fun, they pay special detail to the scenes to keep it light and add something extra to the scenes. Another thing that comedy movies forget is that a joke should compliment the movie, not stop it: there are so many little bits sewn into the movie that happen to the side (Larry being a 2-ton rock at a party), or as part of the world building (a hero support montage of utility belts).
The oddest parts of the movie deal with teens dating and their parents, it’s perfectly apt, but you can feel the awkwardness of the situation.
If you’ve ever liked any super hero anything, then give this a go, you’ll probably like it.
A decent superhero comedy from Disney.
‘Sky High’ sets up a little iffy, with a few cringey moments early, but goes on to produce a suitably entertaining film. Kurt Russell gives the only performance that I’ll likely remember, but all the cast do their part – they are well cast, with none of them leaving anything to be desired to be honest.
The effects are good, while there are a couple of amusing gags thrown in. It’s a simple and pretty predictable premise, but that doesn’t stop it from being fun to watch. It could’ve, perhaps, worked better as a TV show? There are murmurs that that’s what they plan to do soon, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they did.
Worth a watch.
Low Expectations Proved Wrong!
I got to go see Sky High at a free preview last night. When I saw the commercials, I wrote this movie off immediately. It looked like a strictly-for-kids, stupid-but-cute, teeny-bopper funfest. Blech!
I was pleasantly surprised! I love going into a movie like this with low expectations and being proved wrong. I am a hardcore comics fan (“weenie” I believe the earlier reviewer said) and I still found a lot to like here.
The movie has a better take on what a superhero world would actually be like than many “serious” movies. It was almost like a kids version of the “Astro City” comic book.
The jokes really made Sky High for me! I wont spoil any for you but I will point out that the cast included Bruce Campbell, Kevin McDonnell, Dave Foley and Lynda Carter!
If you’re a comics fan, go see it! If you’ve got kids and want to have a fun evening, go see it!
I am kinda hoping that this becomes Disney’s next live-action series.
Wonderful FAMILY Movie
I just got back from seeing this movie with three kids. The movie had appeal for everyone: – for the kids, because it was kid-oriented and clean; – for the adults because there were sprinkles of nostalgia throughout; and – for anyone else because it was just a good clean fun movie.
There was no great script or acting here, just some real fun for all. We could all relate to the main character, who had to struggle with finding out what he had and deciding what he would do with it, who his friends were, where his loyalties lie, and how much integrity to demonstrate.
The violent scenes were mostly slapstick or cartoonish enough so as not to distress small children (I say mostly because there is some violence, but no blood or gore; just people smashing into or through things, etc.).
I especially liked that Lynda Carter gave a nod to her Wonder Woman character, and that Clois Leachman – one of my favorite actresses – was involved, once again, with superheroes – and with Lynda Carter, too (Clois was Lynda’s mother in the original Wonder Woman movie).
Also, although only caricatures, the script-writers and kid actors were true to the typicalities of high school. The social divisions, the crushes, the nerds, the cool kids – it was all there. And the only annoying characters were supposed to be annoying.
I sincerely wish the script had been better written, so that the actors had had more to work with. But they did their best with what they had, and overall it was just great, good clean fun – so rare in today’s movie world. Unlike Willy Wonka’s current incarnation, there was no odd bite or double entente’s to worry about. Take the kids – especially your inner child – and enjoy!
