Up, Up, and Away! : The ending was disappointing

The ending was disappointing

Was I the only one put off by the ending of this film?

The movie itself was OK, but IMHO, the ending was a major letdown. After going through that whole ordeal, poor Scott still never got any super powers! When I saw this film, I was sitting there thinking, "That's not really how they're going to end this, is it?" To me, it would have been much more satisfying if in the heat of the final battle, Scott had gotten pushed over the edge, and then his long-dormant powers would've finally kicked in. This flat, unresolved conclusion spoiled what was otherwise an OK picture. It's been a few years now, but maybe someday they'll do a sequel that will rectify this problem.

NO! That is such a cliche of kid-centered films about superheroes. Just look at The Incredibles, Sky High, and Zoom. (Admittedly, the first two were good) Regardless, the ending was the only good thing about this film.

The only thing dissappointing is this post.You wouldn't know talent if it crawled up your booty and died.

Re: The ending was disappointing

I was also disappointed by the end They don't have to give him super strength and flight. But some power it could a been something mental power telekinese or some kind of mind block I dont the movie was a let down

Re: The ending was disappointing

I didn't like the ending either; one second to go until the parents were brainwashed and just in the nick of time he breaks the computer. I thought there should've been more time left in the countdown.

I was glad he didn't have powers; then he'd have a mental complex like the rest of his family.

Though I did want the girl to ask him out in the end anyway, even if she didn't remember anything.

Re: The ending was disappointing

If that happened it would've reminded me so much of sky high, but then again Up up and away came out first

Re: The ending was disappointing

It was supposed to be a youth inspirational movie centered towards kids without natural abilities (as opposed to kids who are, for example, naturally built for sports). Of course superpowers are always way cooler than a morale message They should've just thrown both in like what happend in Sky High.

Re: The ending was disappointing

^Agreed. It was to inspire kids who aren't naturally gifted. Some people are naturally great at sports and others aren't.

Re: The ending was disappointing

Yeah the ending was fine. The morale was you don't need super powers to help people and ironically, Scott was the only one in his family that didn't have super powers and he was the one saving his family in the end from being mind-controlled.

Re: The ending was disappointing

I like that they ended it with the determined but unpowered kid saving the day. Breaks the usual cliche.

For that matter, Batman has no super powers. What's to stop the kid from becoming a Badass Normal, if he really wants to be a hero? Especially with tech-savvy friends to help him get equipped.

Re: The ending was disappointing

lol he didn't even ask the girl out.

Re: The ending was disappointing

I think it was to show that you don't need Super Powers to be a hero. Plus now he can grow up and be like Batman, but one that comes from a loving family and friends.
