The Adventures of Sharkboy & Lavagirl

The Adventures of Sharkboy & Lavagirl

A timid young boy's superhero fantasies are realised when he finds himself in the world his mind created - in reality mostly created by director Robert Rodriguez's own kids.

Bullied by classmates, Max (Cayden Boyd) escapes into his imagination where he watches the action-packed lives of Lavagirl (Taylor Dooley) and Sharkboy (Taylor Lautner). However, one day Lavagirl and Sharkboy suddenly come to life and their world, Planet Drool, needs a hero named Max. From there, Max must battle aliens and versions of his own bullies while trying to save his new friends' planet from destruction.

Small fry will be enchanted by this rambunctious action-adventure.

Astoundingly boring and, frankly, tedious to sit through.

An often imaginative though less than magical family feature.

A bizarre, hopelessly muddled fantasy that's likely to induce utter bewilderment in its target audience.
