superbBy williamsgwynfa (627 reviews) from gwaenysgor , 17 Apr 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]my daughter Bethany really enjoyed this film. it is set in a world where superheroes are commonly known and accepted.
young Will Stronghold, the son of the Commander and Jetstream, tries to find a balance between being a normal teenager and an extraordinary being.
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.
It's an out-of-this-world yet completely recognizable place where cool gadgetry, rampant bravery and awe-inspiring magical skills mix it up with parental battles, peer pressure and dating trouble--with explosively fun results. This year's class features some of the best, brightest and most powerfully gifted super-teens ever assembled. And then there's Will Stronghold. When you're the son of the world's most legendary super heroes, The Commander and Jetstream, people expect you to live up to the family name The problem is that Will is starting with no superpowers of his own and, worst of all, instead of joining the ranks of the Hero class, he finds himself relegated to being a Sidekick.
Now he must somehow survive his freshman year while dealing with an overbearing gym coach, a bully with super speed and a dangerous rebel with a grudge (and the ability to shoot fire from his hands)--not to mention the usual angst, parental expectations and girl problems that accompany teenage life. But when an evil villain threatens his family, friends and the very sanctity of Sky High, Will must use his newfound superpowers to save the day and prove himself a Hero worthy of the family tradition.
well worth renting out.

Sky HighBy Fugazi (35 reviews) from Hitchin , 30 Sep 2009As Disney family films go, this is up there with the best of them. I was not expecting much from Kurt Russell, however I was pleasantly surprised, he played the part brilliantly. The story, the plot, the characters, the photography, all of it was superb! I loved it, in fact I may have to buy this, it was that good!
Sky HighBy standardman (90 reviews) from Littleborough , 18 Aug 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideBruce Campbell traumatising children, high school troubles and Kurt Russel punching out a giant robot, what's not to love?
High StandardBy a customer from Essex , 06 Aug 2009This film is great for adults and kids alike. The theme of heroes hidden among us is well worn but this invative spin on it is well presented.
I liked it so much I went and bought it

Sky High - cheesy but tastyBy a customer from Bishop's Stortford , 08 Jul 2009Slick disney production does it again. Too slick to ever make a truly great film they can still churn out the family entertainment better than anyone else.
