CHEER! – (7 stars out of 10)
The stage curtains open …
In the shadow of movies like “Iron Eagle” comes this fun, crowd-pleaser. A Navy SEAL team is sent into North Korea on a rescue mission, but are captured and imprisoned where they await trial for espionage. If they are found guilty, they will be executed. The teenage children of these four men catch wind of a proposed rescue operation that is discussed by military brass but then decided against to keep the peace. Enraged and frustrated, the teenagers come up with their own daring plan to infiltrate the facility where their parents are being held captive and bring them back home.
As unlikely as any of this is, I found myself really enjoying this film. It is pure adolescent fantasy, but a rousing story of courage and overcoming impossible odds to rescue the ones you love. It is also a coming-of-age tale for one of the teenagers in particular as he wants the chance to restore a good relationship with his father and gain his approval, which he so desperately needs. The acting is decent, the pacing is good, there is comedy and action.
For a fun movie experience, I recommend this one. I’ve seen it more than a few times over the years and am happy to have it in my own personal collection. It is dated and when it comes down to it, unrealistic. But overall, a good experience.
great kids movie
This was one of my favorite movies as a kid. I saw it on the Disney channel, and although I didn’t completely understand the war ethics of the movie, it was about these kids who have a plan to save their dads, who are prisoners of war. Their fathers were captured by North Koreans while fighting on the side of South Koreans. A rescue mission is planned, and then thrown out, so the kids decided to take it into their own hands. The movie is highly unrealistic, but I always enjoyed it every time I watched it as a kid.
