Leave it to Disney to produce a sugar coated clustercrap like this, call it a superhero film, and have it turn out to be one of the worst and most overrated films of all time. I will admit that Warren Peace was an interesting character. But the rest of the characters are bland and stupid and this movie is still horrendous.
So, let's start with the very worst thing about this movie. The sugar coated, kids stuff that has no place in a superhero movie. One of the requirments of a good superhero movie, contrary to popular belief, is darkness. Daredevil, one of my personal favorites, has it. So does Batman Begins, and although the Spider-Man Trilogy isn't known for it, there are times when it can be dark. Which is more than can be said for Sky High. The very darkest thing to happen in the movie is when the villain turns the superheroes into babies. That's right, babies. Remember, this is a superhero film. Also, let's leave it to one of the GREATEST directors of all time, you know the "genius" who brought us "Alvin and the Chipmunks" and Surviving Christmas" to add to this masterpiece about as much action and violence as your average pbs show. Infact, one of the characters says "I don;t believe in using my powers for violence". Pathetic.
Also, this movie has outright horrible comedy. The jokes were so unfunny I almost got teary. I'm serious. Especially the ones with Mr Medula. He tries really hard to be funny, several times, but it doesn;t work.
In addition the acting was outright horrible. Aside from Michael Angarano and Steven Strait, they might as well have been reading their script as they were acting, for they put about as much effort into it as I do eating a sandwitch.
Bottom line, I don't care about the stupid tomato-meter. It's stupid and inaccurate. This is one of the worst movies ever made. Period.
