film review – Sky kids (aka Flyboys)

I’d never heard of this film, but it was the best available family DVD at the library according to IMDB.

The film tells the story of two young teenagers and their adventures with the mob and aeroplanes. It has a great plot (which you will not be able to guess), good action sequence, some good laughs and the more sensitive of my girls cried.

It’s the second film from a South African film maker that I had never heard of (Devilliers). I plan to rent his first film and will see a future film on the basis of this effort. I don’t think it had a wide release on issue and may not yet be available in the US. Given the rubbish that is in every multiplex, this is a travesty.

8 out of 10. Good family fare.
