When alien invaders capture Earth’s superheroes, their kids must learn to work together to save their parents – and the planet.We Can Be Heroes 2020 full Movie.
There have been plenty of movies released this year that feel eerily topical, from the zombie movie #Alive to the legal drama The Trial of the Chicago 7. Robert Rodriguez’s new superhero movie, We Can Be Heroes, doesn’t feel like it’s (unintentionally) about 2020, but rather the future as his film declares that those who will truly be able to save the world are the kids — and everyone else should just shut up and let them work. Despite this being a colorful superhero spectacle, We Can Be Heroes nevertheless feels like Rodriguez’s most personal project in years.
We Can Be Heroes takes place in a world full of superheroes, who work together under the banner “The Heroics.” But when an army of aliens kidnaps all the superheroes on Earth, it is up to their superpowered children to do something about it. The film has been heavily marketed as the return of Rodriguez’s previous superhero duo, Sharkboy and Lavagirl, but this is not their movie. Sure, they show up — and there’s even a joke about Sharkboy liking to sing, probably in reference to the pop classic “Sharkboy’s Lullaby” — but original Sharkboy actor Taylor Lautner has been replaced by stunt actor JJ Dashnaw and that dynamic duo is not the focus of this film.
Instead, we follow Missy Moreno (Yaya Gosselin), the daughter of the Heroics’ leader, Marcus (Pedro Pascal). Though she has no superpowers, and is generally a shy girl who spends her morning deciding which outfit is more likely to get other kids to leave her alone, she alone can get a group of 11 mismatched superkids to work together. Though the script mostly follows the same story beats you’d expect, Rodriguez executes those beats to a T, crafting a kid-friendly response to The Avengers that nevertheless feels like its own thing.
