.going SKY HIGH.

now before we move on to the movie, it is very very important that this movie is mainly catered to teenagers. and since i'm not one. it is highly doubtful that I would enjoy this movie.

then, let's start this review of this super power movie.

first of all, let's see what this movie is all about.
It all begins at a secret school in the clouds like none on earth: Sky High, the first and only high school for kids with super-human powers going through crime-fighting puberty. At Sky High, the student body throw flames with their footballs, study Villainy with their Chemistry and are divided into Heroes and Sidekicks instead of jocks and geeks.
Ok, first of all, it is set in a fictional world where there are tons of people with superpower. i mean by the thousands. heck, there's even a school bigger than the fucking x-men.

the stories focus on the main character, Will Stronghold. son of the legendary Stronghold family. The greatest superhero of all time. (i mean out of thousands of people in the world as superheroes, only one freaking family is that great. the others are what? sidekicks?)

nvm. as you can see the movie starts off with Will being some kind of retard offspring without any powers, then he moves on to being ridiculed, gets his powers (super-strength and flying) and kicks everyone's butt as well as save the world from imminent destruction.


so predictable.

It's a classic teenage love story with an extra "The Incredibles" twist inside. I mean except that there's only one child.

Boy gets ridiculed. Transforms. Becomes powerful. Misunderstood as a jerk who forgot his old friend. Repents. Saves the world. The end.

All in all, i'd say it's a meagre watch. I would rate it as a fun family... well, maybe not as good as "The Incredibles" but some kind of teenage flick with a twist.

Overall: 2/10
