Critic Reviews for The Flyboys (Sky Kids)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

I like Disney-style adolescent adventures and I like The Sopranos, but, unlike peanut butter and chocolate, these are not two great tastes that taste great together.

Don't be fooled by the Kids in the title, this is one terrific action drama, with a few comedic grace notes

It's like two stories unfolding in parallel universes.

Kansas City Star

At times it's a rather light-hearted family adventure. But parts of it also become a mean-spirited crime thriller. That light-dark contrast doesn't quite work.

One of the best action movies you and your kids could see this summer. At least look for it on video.

One of the summer's nicest surprises..a mostly family-friendly adventure that doesn't rely on superheroes or science fiction to get your pulse racing...
