Synopsis : When alien invaders kidnap Earth's superheroes, their children must team up and learn to work together if they want to save their parents and the world.
Review : First of all, I absolutely agree that all the big names in this film were just to attract the audiences. Even Spy Kids had Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino in the trilogy and Jessica Alba in the 4th one.
The story is pretty routine, all given away by the trailer, though I did like the twists in the film, except the climax maybe. It's a kid's movie and I wanted to keep an open mind for this, but me being a grown up who used to watch Spy Kids and Sharkboy and Lavagirl many times on TV, feels disappointed that the director just mashed up both ideas to make this film.
The cast is good, Priyanka felt a little too over the top. Pedro Pascal is one of my new favourite actors, and I totally digged his look in this film. The kids were good for their roles, and as every Robert Rodriguez kids movie, the kids steal the show.
You know what would have excited me, a crossover movie with the Spy Kids and Heroics, maybe a sequel (which this film will get, I have a feeling) can explore that idea.
I don't want to be too negative, maybe this generation's 10 Year old will enjoy this, who knows ?
