Audience Reviews for Sky High

For a children's film, 'Sky High' is superior than many mature superhero films made nowadays. Cool effects with a magnificent blend of CGI, well-excecuted action sequences add to what is a quality film.

I didn't really think I'd like this film but it's one of my favourite films. It's underrated and really quite good. A must see!
