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 Blatz in an interview for the Canadian press, 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 »

American high-school, aliens and no intelligent life
17 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

I didn't expect much and I was still disappointed. Imagine a duo of dorky brothers accidentally getting their hands on an alien spaceship that they can control with their mind, that changes them into superheroes and that in the end save the world and get the girls. Not a big stretch of the imagination, is it?

But that is not the worst part. The girls were not worth getting, the aliens were pathetic, the high-school bully looked like he just got there from a musical and the acting... I couldn't find any. In the end this is one giant mindless movie, made for the sole purpose of getting money from prepubescent teens who go to movies because they have parents at home.
