  • I didn't get a migraine, but there are stronger recommendations.

    January 4, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • We need a baby-sitter we can trust while nursing the last of the season's hangovers. Just try and stay out of the room for the excruciatingly sunny cover of David Bowie's Heroes.

    January 1, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A sort of sequel to "The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl," this film gives kids exactly what they want. Adults? Not so much.

    December 31, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Rodriguez's film has a simple nobility to it that does a lot to overcome the slapdash CGI and cheap sets. It's always easier to embrace something when it's made with sincerity and heart.

    December 28, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This was clearly made for kids, not critics, and the design and action are vibrant enough to divert them. Rodriguez is well-versed in superhero tropes for parents who can appreciate comic-book satire.

    December 28, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The get-a-load-of-this facetiousness of "We Can Be Heroes" feels a bit rote, like the child-lite version of a "Men in Black" escapade crossed with wisps of nostalgia for "The Goonies."
