Storyline

When alien invaders kidnap Earth's superheroes, their kids are whisked away to a government safe house. But whip-smart tween Missy Moreno will stop at nothing to rescue her superhero dad, Marcus Moreno. Missy teams up with the rest of the superkids to escape their mysterious government babysitter, Ms. Granada. 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.

Garbage superhero movie. Feels like a mockbuster at best.
13 January 2021 | by spidgeentertainmentSee all my reviews

This movie is trash. It has little to do with the prior film, minus the usage of Sharkboy and Lavagirl (who have, at best, 7-10 minutes of screen time). This fact makes it feel almost like an insult to call it a "sequel to the original".

The plot is predictable, cheesy, cliche, shall I go on? The CGI is subpar to trash. The usage of green screen is done horribly, and set look so fake, that it's hard for me to take it seriously. Hero names are plain and could be thought of by a toddler. And the main adult superhero is legitimately a Hawkeye knock off (down to the look of the actor) but he fights with swords instead of a bow. It feels almost like a mockbuster than a movie that's meant to be taken seriously.
