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.

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.

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

...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.

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.
