Disney’s entertaining coming-of-age super hero action comedy achieves a miraculous level of kitchy zip thanks to its creative casting of Kurt Russell, Lynda Carter, and Bruce Campbell. Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) is a 14-year-old son of super hero parents (Kurt Russell and Kelly Preston) who reluctantly goes to Sky High School to follow in his parent’s hero footsteps. But Will is categorized as a non-heroic “Sidekick” at school before discovering his strength. Canny jokes, quick pacing and a humorous use of special effects make this a fun popcorn movie.
Rated PG. 100 Mins. (B) (Three Stars)
