Storyline

Fourteen-year-old Tyler encounters an alien ship which makes him appear older, inexplicably turns him into a "Skyrunner" with incomprehensible powers. This turns his high school life upside down, and may enable him to help his slightly clueless older brother's love life. After he is abducted by beings who intend to takeover of Earth, he must depend on his inept, lovelorn, and goofy brother to rescue him. Written by Jasha

Trivia

According to Kelly's Blatz in his coverage interview for the Canadian Press, (and in contrast to some popular belief) the precocious aging/transformation of Tyler Burns was not originally scripted, nor was it faked. Instead, it was written into the film when shooting in 2007 halted in order for Blatz to continue work on Aaron Stone. Filming resumed a year later, and by then Joey Pollari had already gone through a few mature changes. Therefore, his character's so called "puberty" was in fact real and it may be evident that the film was shot in chronological sequence. See more »

My 310th Review: My kids LOVED it and so did we
26 January 2010 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

Sorry but the bad reviews have it wrong. For a TV movie for Disney this is excellent - it contains just about every dream about finding a space ship and being changed into a super being that you could wish for.

Honestly, as an adult I sit through a lot of nonsense because the kids wants to watch, but we all really enjoyed this: exciting and just scary enough, and the dodge ball scene was ever underdogs dream.

I would, as a parent, recommend this one. It makes a refreshing change to see some a good storyline and we liked it from beginning to end.

Best geared for the tweenies I would say, and if they like sci-fi then this is going to fit the bill.
