Skyrunners is a Disney XD original film from 2009 that tells the story of two brothers who discover a mysterious object that gives them superhuman abilities. The movie is a blend of science fiction and action, taking the audience on a thrilling adventure through the skies. The film stars Kelly Blatz as Tyler Burns and Joey Pollari as Nick Burns, two high school students who are not exactly sportsmen. They spend most of their time tinkering with gadgets and dreaming about creating their own video games. However, their lives take a dramatic turn when they witness a UFO crash-landing near their home.

After investigating the crash site, the brothers find a glowing sphere that seems to have a life of its own. Despite the warnings of its previous owner, they take the sphere back to their garage, where they discover that it gives them newfound abilities. The sphere, it turns out, is a technology created by a race of extraterrestrial beings known as the Kreech.

As Tyler and Nick learn to harness their powers, they realize that their sphere is not the only one on Earth. The Kreech's arch-nemesis, the evil warlord Rana, is also on the hunt for the sphere, hoping to use it for his sinister plans of world domination.

The brothers are soon recruited by a government agent named Morgan Burns (played by Linda Kash), who explains the danger of the situation and the fate of the world that has been entrusted in their hands. With Rana's army of alien drones closing in on them, Tyler and Nick must use their newfound powers to protect not just themselves, but the entire world.

The movie is an action-packed adventure that features impressive special effects and adrenaline-pumping chase sequences. It also contains the right amount of humor, thanks to the banter between the two brothers and their unique personalities.

Blatz and Pollari deliver standout performances as the two brothers, capturing the essence of their sibling relationship and making their characters' journey feel genuine. Kash's portrayal of the government agent is also noteworthy, adding depth to the story and providing a grounded perspective in a world of alien technology.

Overall, Skyrunners is an entertaining sci-fi flick that will appeal to both kids and adults. The movie tackles themes of brotherhood, responsibility, and teamwork, while delivering a fun and action-packed ride. It's a must-watch for anyone who loves a good sci-fi adventure.
