|SkyKids – I am so excited to start writing this movie review. A movie with a cool title, suitable for a film, blog, forum. :-D. It is known either as “SkyKids” or “The FlyBoys”, which may cause some initial confusion for those of you who first look for it online. The IMDB entry is after the title “The FlyBoys”, but on August 23rd the movie was internationally released as “SkyKids”. For the purpose of this review I will use “SkyKids” as I like this title more …|
I would start by saying that “SkyKids” has a similar atmosphere to another recently released title, “The Son of Rambow”. It differs however in the focus, which is on the action ( including amazing aerial scenes ) instead of its comedy aspects. Which is not to say that “The Son of Rambow” doesn’t have any action in it. The action in the film is really intense, which assures a long run at the box office.
I really love the fact that SkyKids is not like those dumb movies which flood the cinemas lately / you know the kind – with dozens of computer generated effects and no real meaning . In SkyKids all stunts are real performed by very talented pilots .
If feels like the movie has several different plots. Starting with what may be your average story about a troubled kid who befriends a rather shy boy from his new school. A coming-of-age action film is probably the most accurate description of “SkyKids”.
The cast of the movie is really good. I loved the acting, especially one of the young actors. Reiley Mc Clendon was very convincing as Kyle. In fact Reiley Mc Clendon, who is currently eighteen years old, has unique aspects to his facial characteristic or something in his natural charisma, which really contributes to his role as Kyle. The movie seems to have been made at least five or six years ago and I am really curious as to why they waited so long to release it.
The movie is very entertaining and its guaranteed to keep you glued to the screen for its entire 144 minute length. I loved it and highly recommend that you head to the nearest DVD store to get a copy of it.
