Here everyone loves seeing Owen Wilson as a superhero as a dad who’s trying to balance this family life and work-life situation but his work is being a superhero and he’s in this position where he doesn’t want to tell his son yet and that has caused the rift in his marriage and all that but when he is on screen.
Michael Pena who plays the sleazy jealous villain who wants all the power to himself in this very selfish and been there done that kind of way these two are just spectacular where they’re not the ideal superhero they’re not at the right age they don’t necessarily have all the abs and all the strength and so a lot of times the film uses that to the great comedic effect like them getting tired in the middle of the fight them discovering powers as they put on this suit and fight.
There’s a lot of fun to have with those situations fans enjoyed Owen Wilson and Walker Scobel’s chemistry, now this kid has recently stolen the show in the atom project playing opposite Ryan Reynolds and he keeps killing it. The kids are all charming and work really well with one another when Owen Wilson and Michael Pena are on screen separately or together that’s when this film shines for fans.

Secret Headquarters 2022 Movie Review:
That’s one of my biggest issues with this film is that it feels budgetarily trapped the bulk of this film is set inside the secret headquarters as these kids first discover it and eventually start being invaded so it kind of works as a home invasion film with Michael Pena and Jesse Williams coming in and that’s really it sadly until we get to the third act where the location changes for once but the film can’t quite capture the magic of a single location film particularly because it’s not the right tone for it you cannot mine that much tension from this single location the film has some fun with the secret headquarters technology and all the comedic hijinks that ensue.
But it just doesn’t really grab your attention after a while furthermore you know who is not in this film for the bulk of it unlike the secret headquarters Owen Wilson himself he shows up here and there in the first act to get the film going and then he disappears until late into the second act and you’re just spending time with these kids in these situations that after a bit feels very repetitive feel very predictable and this is a kids movie.
It’s clearly aiming for the kids so maybe they won’t find it predictable but just wish it could have struck the right balance of being a kids movie and a family movie as well.
And when we said the film feels trapped We don’t just mean budget wise we mean creatively where this story would have very much benefited from being a series where the concepts are very surface level they’re not explored enough and so they can be repainted and redressed and the film would have played out the same would have gotten to the same conclusion and that’s a bummer because there’s enough creativity here with the primal concepts and the cast of characters that we have that could have been much better.
Secret Headquarters is the goonies with a sci-fi twist led by a charismatic charm some charming moments and a touching family dynamic but its creative and budget restraints make it monotonous repetitive and rushed where this story would have been better served as a series.
