We Can Be Heroes movie review - Aussieboyreviews
DO THE SUPERHERO-KIDS IN WE CAN BE HEROS GET INTO LOTS OF ACTION?
This kids’ action-comedy film with superpowers and superheroes definitely involves action. The humour is fine, the story is pacy for families, but We Can Be Heroes grows quite bland.
When alien intruders invade Earth and capture the world’s heroics, their kids must work together as a team and use their skills to save their parents — and the planet.

Aussie boy's thoughts
It’s cheesy and predictable, but if you concentrate properly, you’ll also find that We Can Be Heroes does not make any sense at all. This family action-comedy featuring child-superheroes receives credit for its fair amounts of amusement and for the fact that it’ll likely entertain fans of movies like Spy Kids, but is also just your average kids-with-superpowers sort of film.
This is definitely a bright way for families to return if they were pleased with director Robert Rodriguez’s Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl. We Can Be Heroes presents a large group of heroic children with cheesy but visually impressive superpowers. If the film’s trailer excited you with its alien creatures, heroes and effects, the movie delivers 100 minutes of exactly that!
It’s funny for children, and will even give parents the undeniable giggle, but there’s a significantly noticeable patch of bland land. Majority of its moments are really pacy and the cast presents their characters well, but it’ll leave you with a lot of questions if you were really focused. It’s a childish kids’ movie, but its still very flawed.
