We Can Be Heroes

When aliens abduct all of Earth's mightiest heroes, their superpowered children must step up and save the day in this family action adventure. Directed by Robert Rodriguez and set in the same world as his 2005 film The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl.

When alien invaders kidnap Earth's superheroes, their kids are whisked away to a government safe house. But whip-smart tween Missy Moreno (Yaya Gosselin) will stop at nothing to rescue her superhero dad, Marcus Moreno (Pedro Pascal). Missy teams up with the rest of the superkids to escape their mysterious government babysitter, Ms. Granada (Priyanka Chopra Jonas). If they're going to save their parents, they'll have to work together by using their individual powers — from elasticity to time control to predicting the future — and form an out-of-this-world team.

Pops thinly like day-old bubblegum, with the same lack of anything satisfying or nutritious.

A cheerful and colorful take on the superhero genre with a powerful message about empowering younger generations to take the reins and do better than their parents.

But while he can generate countless environments from his Austin studio, the camerawork on these projects, constrained and uninspired, hints at their single-room origins.

Feels a bit rote, like the child-lite version of a "Men in Black" escapade crossed with wisps of nostalgia for "The Goonies."

Has a simple nobility to it that does a lot to overcome the slapdash CGI and cheap sets. It's always easier to embrace something when it's made with sincerity and heart.
