Sky High (2005)
Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Family Film, Disney
This film is a decent and highly entertaining children’s movie involving superheroes 🙂 . Disney does a good attempt at the superhero genre (pre-Marvel Franchise 😛 ) and even adults (or simply fans of superheroes) will enjoy this. The characters are pleasant and likable, you actually want to root for the good guys, impressed by the villains and laugh along with them. Also the humour is very strong in this film! I loved the idea of separating heroes and sidekicks in a high school setting. The narrative is well constructed, clever, plenty of teen drama, entertaining and has a pretty nice twist in the plot 😛 . My favourite scenes are the new kids’ initiation into the school, the final battle and the battle between Layla and Penny. I loved the powers they chose for characters, plants, stretch, speed, flight and the graphics aren’t too bad. Has a comic book feel to the film and the soundtrack is pretty cool (my favourite being “I’ll Stop the World and Melt with You” ) 😛 A highly enjoyable and captivating film that the entire family can enjoy and great for fans of superheroes 😀 ! Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4.5 Stars out of 5!
