From Amazon.co.uk

The idea of a high school for superheroes will undoubtedly appeal to teens and preteens, who struggle powerlessly with petty authoritarians, bullying peers and their own rampant hormones. Sky High spotlights young Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano, Lords of Dogtown), the son of top-of-the-heap superhero couple the Commander (Kurt Russell, Tango & Cash) and Josie Jetstream (Kelly Preston, View from the Top). Unfortunately, though he's about to be dropped into the midst of kids who can stretch, turn to living stone, or shoot fire, Will has yet to develop any powers whatsoever--and may never develop them at all. His development anxieties (and some entertaining metaphors for high school social hierarchies) contrast with a bubbling plot by an old foe of the Commander's to destroy Sky High and all of superhero-dom. Sky High has a great supporting cast (including Bruce Campbell, Army of Darkness; Dave Foley, NewsRadio; Lynda Carter, Wonder Woman; and Cloris Leachman, Young Frankenstein) and a handful of funny, offhand bits, but the bulk of the movie is bland and obvious. Younger kids may not mind the clumsy action scenes, generic dialogue, and tacky production design, but even comic-book-loving teenagers will label Sky High bargain-basement. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars If Only High School Were Really This Super 7 Mar 2006
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) is about to start his first day of high school. He's attending his parent's alma mater, and the pressure to live up to their legacy is huge. See, his parents (Kurt Russell and Kelly Preston) happen to be the biggest superheroes known to mankind. As The Commander and Jetstream, they routinely work together to save the world. But Will has a big problem; he has no super powers of his own.
Will is quickly put in the Sidekick's class, a huge dishonor he tries to keep from his parents. Even so, he quickly makes friends and begins to settle in, even attracting the attention of the beautiful student body president, something unheard of for a freshman in the Sidekick class, or Hero Support if you prefer.
Danger lurks around every corner, however. Will has an arch nemesis on campus and someone is watching the Stronghold's secret lair. Will Will develop any powers to help cope with these problems?
This movie is supposed to be mindless fun for the young and young at heart, and it succeeds mightily. All the actors do a great job, especially the mostly unknown teen cast. The adults in the film have fun with their rolls. Everyone's trying to do a good job but have fun at the same time, and that spirit draws you into the film. I especially enjoyed Lynda Carter's brief appearances as the school principal, and she gets the best line out of the entire movie.
The plot, on the other hand, is fairly predictable for anyone who has seen a Disney family film before. I had most everything figured out before it happened, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the movie for one minute. Being a high school movie, it has many cliches from that genre as well, but with a clever superhero twist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun family film 8 Feb 2006
Format:DVD
Will Strong is about to start his first term at Sky High, a school for Superheroes. Great things are expected of Will because he is the son of not one but TWO superheroes, the Commander, who is superstrong, and Jetgirl, who can fly (their cover is selling real estate, they get almost as excited about selling a house as about saving the world). Unfortunately, will's superpowers have not developed yet, and he is too embarrassed to tell anyone. So on his arrival at Sky High, he finds that all the students have to demonstrate their powers to the Coach, who decides whether they will take the Superhero course, or the Sidekick one. Will ends up in the Sidekick class. So does his best friend, a very pretty girl with am amazing talent which she refuses to demonstrate because she disapproves of the Superhero/sidekick division. Will also finds he has trouble with the school badboy, whose father was put in jail by Will's father, and who consequently hates Will.
When Will's superpowers eventually develop he is promoted out of the Sidekick class, and starts dating the glamorous school president. His best friend is not happy about this as she has a crush on Will herself (though he of course hasn't noticed). However, when danger threatens Sky High, it turns out to be the despsed Sidekicks who have just the right powers to save the day, along with Will and the badboy who find they are obliged to settle their differences and work together.
This is a film that everyone should enjoy. The kids will love the exciting story and spectacular special effects, and there is plenty of humour that will appeal to adults.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kurt Russell runs the show 26 Jun 2006
By Scott
Format:DVD
Kurt Russell is one of those actors who is always good in everything, yet never really gets a mention when people talk of great actors. He's perfect in this though. His comic timing is impeccable and coupled with the great script and an exceptionally good supporting cast, this is fun for everyone. Kids will love it, but there's so much here for adults too. It's pretty much a live action version of The Incredibles, or a more light-hearted version of X-Men, and it works as well as either. Very enjoyable.

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
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 great 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.
