    A waste of Jodie Foster's immense talent, coupled with poorly timed cuts to limited animation drags this coming of age drama down to nearly unwatchable. Aside from the ever so cute (and very young here) Jena Malone, there really is nothing to see here. Young alter boys making poor choices and doing dumb things with a backdrop of the superheroes they created and wish to be. Mostly moronic.

    Okay the acting was good but oh my god this was so melodramatic. Like the ending was so over the top, I honestly laughed. Also the animation scenes were so unnecessary. Still, it's entertaining for what it was but comes off as extremely dull most of the time.

    This is a good movie. It shows how tough it is to grow up and the choices we make.

    Wonderful acting by the kid who grew up into great actors in their own right. The live action story paired up with the cartoon story creates a lovely effect.
