Movie Review: We Can Be Heroes, super kids save the day

These years with the theatres and cinemas being shut, people were only able to watch the movies on OTT platforms, and for the ones who have got their Netflix Subscription, they have their spent a lot of time watching a lot of movies and web series in this lockdown. For those with the subscription, We can be Heroes is a sort of kids movie which is pretty much in accessible to anyone who is the age of over 13. 

This movie is directed by Robert Rodriguez. He is the one who has gave and put out lately one of the strangest filmographies of all time. It feels like the end point has come of the creative experiment that the filmmaker has been attempt to improve over since past decades.

We Can Be Heroes is a cautious action and a sequel to the film of Rodrigues film in the year 2005 which is The Adventures of Sharkboy and also the Lavagirl in 3-D. But the cat was let put of the bag it was kept in before the movie got released and that is probably because the target audience of this film was not alive when the Sharkboy and also the Lavagirl were in cineams and were adventuring in the 3D back in those years.

Tying this movie – We Can Be Heroes to his old film back in those years, however is perhaps the only attempt that the director Rodriguez makes at appealing to the adults. Of course, besides the subplot that involves the President who is so dump that he cannot even string a sentence together.

The people will also be able to see the Indian Actress and the pride of India – Priyanka Chopra who will be seen as Ms Granada in the movie and who is especially a power suit wearing manifestation of the great corporate America.  She is also the evil CEO of all the Heroics seen in the movie, a team of superheroes who are being kidnapped and also being tentacled by the aliens is the opening scene of the movie.

With having their planets under attack and also their parents who are taken away by the aliens, the movie falls upon the children which is then led by Missy Moreno who is YaYa Gosselin so that they can rescue and also save the world from the aliens.

Priyanka as most of the time does has got the pitch of her right and perfect performance even in this movie. We Can Be Heroes can seem to be a silly movie in which everyone is operating on the cartoon frequency — but the people says and wished that PC should have chosen one accent and should have stuck to it.

While the adults have got to spend a very limited screen time across the whole board, Priyanka plays quite a role in the movie. In fact, the poor Pedro Pascal and also the Boyd Holbrook appears and seems to have drawn the short straws. The people who have watched the movie would not be surprised if you told them that they had just finished filming all their scenes and the movie only in a couple of days.

Just because a film is made for the children does not mean that it needs to be only juvenile. In the end of the movie we can share a warm message and also give the promise of a sequel. Rodriguez does not even have the best track record with those.
