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 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 »

Simple, easy and relaxing movie.That is what makes this movie not bad.
12 June 2015 | by erickyprSee all my reviews

This movie doesn't have some deep story, doesn't have some great lesson you and it is different from many other movies. What makes it different? It is relaxing. No hard thinking, just watching and enjoying. Actors are cool. There are so many movies with such complicated topics, and it is great to finally watch something and enjoy, be free from all problems and worries. Many people dislike Skyrunner because it is so simple, totally uncomplicated movie. They forgot how to lay on the grass and just watch the sky. If you still know how to do it, watch this movie and expect nothing. That is the beauty. You will feel relaxed. And I really hope it will be part 2 of this movie, as the end suggests it.
