Set in an era where superheroes are commonly known and accepted, young William Stronghold, the son of the Commander and Jetstream, tries to find a balance between being a normal teenager and an extraordinary being.
Max is a normal guy with a dreaming habit-making him a target for bullies. One day, he accidentally summons imaginary characters in his mind named sharkboy and lavagirl. They are his heroes who will defend him at all costs, but when they arrive for real, something unexpected happens, the 2 heroes need max to save their world from a dire threat
Miley Cyrus had auditioned for the film with Taylor Lautner, and said it came down to her and Taylor Dooley for the role of Lavagirl, who was also auditioning; however Miley began production on Hannah Montana (2006) and was forced to back out. AnnaSophia Robb, Taylor Momsen, and Dakota Fanning where all also considered for the part of Lavagirl, but had other projects to attend to. See more »
When Lavagirl's hair is on fire, Sharkboy cools it off by putting water on it. A few shots later, her hair isn't wet at all (it's not in a face shot, so it's hard to see). However, she is supposed to be hot enough to flash-burn anything she touches, so it would make sense that her hair gets dried exceptionally fast. See more »
Get ready for the ultimate power outage.
And who are you to believe that you can defeat me now?
No one special. Just... king of the ocean.

This movie doesn't really need a review. If you have a boy between the ages of 5 and 12, you are probably going to have/get to see this film so here's what to expect:
More of the same... only less. Sorry if that doesn't make sense but it will. More of the same because it's just like "Spy Kids 3-D" on the way it looks and unfold. It looks like a video game and is very predictable. Less is because there is, unfortunately, hardly any good 3-D sequences. Nothing pops out at you the way it did in SPY KIDS except for when someone sneezes or throws something, and that is not too often. The 3-D in the action scenes was poor and barely noticeable. You can't expect too much from the RED AND BLUE 3-D but this was a step backwards from SPY KIDS.
The good news is that you will probably not get a headache from the 3-D like SPY KIDS. My 6 year old loved it and did not say a word throughout (a minor miracle), so i guess it does what it is supposed to do. Entertain the kids.
