Product Description

Product Description

A super adventure of heroic proportions, this crowd-pleasing hit from Walt Disney Pictures stars Hollywood favorites Kurt Russell and Kelly Preston! The son of legendary heroes Commander (Russell) and Jetstream (Preston), young Will Stronghold carries huge expectations as he enters a high-tech high school known for molding the heroes of tomorrow. With no apparent superpowers of his own, however, Will seems destined to grow up a mere sidekick. But as he discovers his true strengths, he'll also learn that it takes loyalty and teamwork to truly become a hero!

I can't believe how underrated this film is--it should have made hundreds of millions at the box office! This movie has so many classic lines and scenes, and Kurt Russell is nothing less than brilliant and hilarious as the Commander ("Side by side ... by side!") At first I thought the adult super-heroes in this film would take a backseat to the teens but they really have a lot to do and that's great. One could almost consider this "the fourth Dexter Riley film" with Kurt energetically reprising his role as the not-so-bright super-strong guy. But the teenage heroes and sidekicks are all great, too--Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Steven Strait really shine, as do all the "sidekicks" in training.

It's a shame, though, that Lynda Carter wasn't cast in the role of Jetstream so we could see more of her, but I suppose it's fitting that she's presented as the one in charge of the school. And her "Comets Away!" spin is an homage to her being Wonder Woman. Heck, at one point she even says makes a reference to the amazing amazon. A cameo by Adam West or Lyle Waggoner would have been cool, too. Is it too late to hope for a sequel? Mike Mitchell did a really great job directing this, and I love how this movie's fight scenes are all mostly practical special effects ... with impressive results. This is a film that also has some important social themes about respect and I can't recommend it enough.

Layla: You know how my mom can communicate with animals? Apparently, they don't like being eaten.

If you ever wondered where superheroes learn their trades, now you know - a high school in the clouds named Sky High, an institution run by Principal Powers (played by - who else - Lynda Carter). This year's freshman class includes future defender of the world Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano). He's the son of the world's greatest superheroes, Commander (Kurt Russell) and Jetstream (Kelly Preston), he starts out with a natural archenemy in fellow student Warren Peace (Steven Strait), and everyone - from his classmates to Ron Wilson - Bus Driver (Kevin Hefferman) to Coach Boomer (Bruce Campbell) expects great things of him. There's just one problem: he has yet to develop any superpowers. Dealing with the pressures of high school is bad enough without the added pressures of being a powerless sidekick in a family of the most super superheroes on Earth.

Sky High is also a high school, which puts all sorts of pressure of its own on the young superhero. There's a cultural divide between heroes and sidekicks, and some of those with the greatest powers use their special skills to bully others. Will sort of straddles the fence initially, as his lack of powers put him in the sidekick curriculum. When his power finally manifests itself, he moves over to the hero class - and that's where his troubles really begin. He tries to maintain his relationship with his sidekick friends, including best friend Layla, but the increasing attention of senior class president Gwen (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) really go to his head. Like many a young person, Will is sort of stupid.

Honestly one of my favourite movies growing up! The spectacular film stars Kurt Russell and Kelly Preston as two superhero parents used to living their lives full of paparazzi and news reporter's and they only wish that their son Will (played respectively by Michael Angarano) will also develop the same amazing powers and follow in the footsteps of the two superhero's. Will's path to righteousness in the film gets somehow blurred when he falls in love with Gwen Grayson (played by the talented Mary Elizabeth Winstead) who seems like a nice girl, yet doesn't have the same Heroic goals as Will. Along with many great actors the film also features the beautiful and talented Danielle Panabaker in her first film role as Layla, Will's girl-next-door and flower power best friend who secretly has a crush on him. Also actors such as Steven Strait, Nicholas Braun, and Lynda Carter. This film is a must-watch if you are currently looking for a good family adventure film that also sets in good rules about a classic tale of good vs. evil, and overall a film with heart. I really believe that new to film actress Danielle Panabaker really shines in this film as the best friend.

Will Stronghold’s parents are the world’s greatest superheroes—the Commander and Jetstream—and his folks are hoping that by him enlisting in the super high school, Sky High, he’ll achieve his full potential and become a great hero himself. Unfortunately, Will doesn’t have any superpowers and must try and make his way out from under his parents’ super shadows and through the trials and tortures of a super high school. When one of the Commander’s old enemies, Royal Pain, surfaces, Will must find it in himself to be the man he was destined to be, and not just become a hero, but a superhero.

Seriously, Kurt Russell as a superhero? Yes. That is a good idea and I’m dead serious. He’s got the looks, the charm and the coolness factor to pull it off. Turning him into a Superman rip-off makes it even more perfect so I’m totally down with Kurt Russell as the Commander. Throw in Kelly Preston as his wife and fellow super crime fighter Jetstream and you’ve got a match made in super Heaven.

This movie is a love letter to the genre, featuring all the things that make superheroes great. As said, you got the Superman-type hero in the Commander, the beautiful heroine ala Wonder Woman in Jetstream, and loads of students at Sky High exhibiting all the classic powers throughout the movie, everything from flight to heat vision, to freezing people to superstrength, to shape shifting to superspeed—the list just keeps going. Tell the story from the point-of-view of the Commander and Jetstream’s son, Will (Michael Angarano), and you have the excuse to be on the outside looking in while also taking part in the adventure yourself.
