Movie Info

An ordinary teenager finds out he's not so ordinary after all in this comedy-adventure. Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) has his share of anxieties about starting high school, but once he arrives on campus, he discovers he's attending Sky High, a special learning facility for the children of superheroes. Will realizes his father is actually super-human crime fighter Captain Stronghold (Kurt Russell), while his mom is fellow champion Josie Jetstream (Kelly Preston). However, in Will's first few days at school, Coach Boomer (Bruce Campbell) is unable to discover any superior abilities in him, meaning that instead of joining the school's budding heroes, he's been relegated to the ranks of the lowly sidekicks. In time, Will discovers he happens to have super strength after all, but will he learn to hone his new gifts in time to fend off the bullies at school, get the girl of his dreams, and save his folks from a longtime nemesis? Sky High also features Lynda Carter, Dave Foley, and Kevin McDonald.

Audience Reviews for Sky High

    I thought this was just okay. Kids will really enjoy the funny momenst and a superhero movie made just for them, but the parents will most likely fall asleep. It had cheap effects sadly and the acting was pretty horrible. However, the concept for the movie will be enjoyed by kids and the plot is actually not as bad as I thought. But to conclude, this movie was okay, but not even close to how good it could've been.

    While a different story, talented in-depth acting, and eye-popping visuals are actively present, the typical overdrawn relationship drama of a typical high school inflicts a rancid taste in this film's development.

    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!

    Oh man, this was lame. Superhero kids who go to high school in the sky? Somebody scream cheesy. And school for superhero kids? Didn't X-Men already do that? Why is Kurt Russell in this? Why?!
