We can be heroes Is the sequel to the 2005 cult children’s film 3D Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl, But it has more in common with Robert Rodriguez’s first full-age adventure, a family-focused, dynamic narrative, Spy kid.
Sharkboy and Lavagirl are back, but only if the child takes over the parents’ inheritance and stepped up to save them. This has reached the emotional high point for the Cortez family to unite against the thumb-shaped minions. However, Rodriguez did not focus on a family, but convened a large collective performance, reminiscent of a team of superheroes like the Avengers, and an emotional message that changed the contemporary spy Children̵

Missy Moreno (YaYa Gosselin), daughter of superhero Marcus Moreno (Pedro Pascal), is full of boredom with criminal life. Her father promised not to do any heroic ministry after his mother died, but when the alien arrived on Earth, he stepped in to help-and was eventually kidnapped along with other members of his heroic ministry team. Therefore, when Ms. Granada (Priyanka Chopra), the head of the hero organization, detained all super kids in a safe government location, Missy carried out a rescue mission for her parents . She has no power, but she manages to strengthen the leadership of the children.
There are 11 children with 11 different superpowers (well, because Missy actually has no power, so has 10 powers), and all parents, We can be heroes Playing with huge actors. But Rodriguez cracked his “Avengers” moment in one of the most seamless superhero introduction sequences imaginable. Missy entered the classroom of super kids and got acquainted with each child and their abilities-after that, the kids watched their parents fight on TV. Every time Rodriguez is captured by his parents, he will show us the reaction of their children, reminding us who is who, and also reminding them of their abilities. We have a good understanding of their personalities and their relationship with their parents. When the children plan an outbreak and save their parents, the end of the scene immediately puts the plot into action. It introduces and consolidates characters, but continues to promote the development of the plot. The movie rarely stands still, Rodriguez effectively uses every moment to reach its climax.
The super abilities of children are also extremely imaginative and fun. The most traditional is noodles, a resilient kid, but Rodriguez dreams of those who can fast forward and rewind time, sing so low that they can move objects, manipulate water and have the power of sharks. child. (This guy likes the power of sharks.) The tricky part of the movie for kids with superpowers is balancing the actors and their powers, especially when some powers are more useful than others. We can be heroes Enhance the personality of each child and give them a unique personality, which is especially impressive considering its large cast. All the children shined with a special light in the final battle. This battle took place on an alien spacecraft and looked like something from a children’s picture book.
Just like Rodriguez’s other children’s films, We can be heroes It is visual pleasure. It is bright, bold, and visually more like a comic book than any modern superhero movie. Heroics headquarters is marked with a large “H”, and its agents have similar letters on their badges. All adult superheroes wear fancy bright costumes (children’s lampshade stuff, kids say these brightly colored costumes make them easy targets for aliens). The alien spacecraft emits a bright purple color and conveys the same fun, but sinister vibration in Floop’s castle. Spy kid Years ago. The action sequence makes full use of the children’s fashionable power-and many aliens within reach, and finally some pencil-drawn creatures come to life. In this regard, they imitated Sharkboy and Lavagirl’s burlesque performances. It’s fun and vibrant to watch.
Faithful to Rodriguez’s past movies, We can be heroes From parent-child relationship. The large cast film leaves little space to establish a specific connection between the children and between the parents, but the main force between Missy and her father is strong enough to make the film pass smoothly. Another pair of parents supports this emotional problem, even if they are one-dimensional themselves. The graceful tortuous ending gives a warm blow.
We can be heroes Rarely seen: a children’s movie made for children, with something special Spy kid To the new generation and bring complete happiness to yourself. Rodriguez took full advantage of the specific themes of childhood and parenthood while creating a movie where young actors are as cool as famous adults. This also reminds us that when we were young, it was fun, but also very important.
We can be heroes It is shown on Netflix today.
