From Soulless Minions:
One of thegoes solo for a commentary on the 2005 film Sky High.
There have been many films over the years that delve humans into the realm of superpowers, heroic deeds and villainy with pulp, grace, dignity and audacity but Sky High is unique within this burgeoning genre as it breaks the mold and succeeds in a slightly different way. Nevertheless, it does have those basic elements of comic book story telling such as drama, action and adventure, but there’s also young love, cheeky self awareness, and of course some cool kids and grown ups with some wicked cool superpowers. The latter elements give it a fresh spin that sets it aside from other modern contemporaries. Maybe some dismiss it as a parody but we like to think of it as a tribute or love letter to the genre. No matter how you see it you gotta admit – Sky High is a lot of fun.
