Today we’re talking about the 2022 film Secret Headquarters.
A very simple and effecient story that uses everything that it sets up. It’s not groundbreaking writing but it is solid and well thought out.
An impressive young cast that balances comedy, action, and drama extremely well. I really enjoyed the evolution of the soldier. I liked the pseudo villain being a rich dude with too much greed. Although the Kill a Minion to show I’m a Jerk trope was a little overdone.
The movie leaned heavily into comedy and has a lot of great lines. The comedy was balanced well with beleivability.
Visuals and Music
The special effects were amazing and the locations suitibly YA. I found the camera work excellent and it emullated other hero movies excellently.
The music was significantly better than I had expected.
Despite a few awkward moments the movie is fun from start to finish. Everyone in the family loved it and the kids forgot to ask for snacks.
A light YA movie that meshes the humour of 80’s kids movies with the action and special effects of modern superhero films. A lot of fun with some amazing kid actors.
Final Score: 4.5 Stars out of 5
