Best: YAY FOR SCIENCE
Many superhero origin stories start out of revenge, or the need for defense, or for justice. But even before the need for vengeance, Hiro had a lust for tinkering and mechanics. The others on his team were junkies for engineering, chemistry, organics, computation... even with the obvious nod toward today's startup environment in Silicon Valley, the film excitedly focused on the role of science in the everyday life of the future. The exploration of the bounds of the imagination -- especially as kids hammered away at their projects at the college and in their garages -- is fun for kids, and a good ignition for adults, too. And even as Hiro's mission leans towards danger and pain, his companions give him a good reminder: this isn't why we got into this. A rare moment in an era of movie-going that emphasizes peace over war. - Katie Hasty
