Sky High Reviews

Joshua Starnes
ComingSoon.net

Sky High is the latest Disney teen comedy about the pitfalls of adolescent life, but is much, much better than it seems like it should be in large part due to its strong cast and assured direction.

Eye for Film

Here, teen empowerment takes on a very literal form, even if events never stray far from the world as envisaged in a John Hughes movie.

It might be aimed at teens, but Sky High is fun for parents, too.

Sky High is adolescent, in the best, age-appropriate sense of the word; it's like a John Hughes movie, but for tweens.

the film adds a superior level of irreverence that reminds me of films like Galaxy Quest.

Film Threat

...A movie based on a high school for super-powered teens may not have seemed like the savviest idea. Fortunately, Sky High isn't bad. In fact, it's surprisingly good.

Movie Metropolis

Sky High pokes gentle fun at growing up, entering a new school, joining cliques, adjusting to friends and parents, dealing with peer pressure, and learning who you are.

The script crackles with funny, quotable dialogue and the plot has a lot of fun with the usual teen movie staples.

While originality is hardly the film's strongest suit, its agreeable mix of knowing spoof and kid-pleasing fantasy makes it considerably more engaging than some of the 'straight' superhero blockbusters we've suffered recently.

...as far as bringing a superhero angle to the real world, the Spider-Man franchise has done a more convincing job than this sitcom approach.

Shadows on the Wall

This inventive superhero movie hybrid (The Incredibles meet the X-men via Harry Potter) is one of the most entertaining family films of the summer.

There are enough characters in the clean cut satire 'Sky High' to spin-off a dozen Saturday morning TV series.
