Spy Kids 3D: Game Over

2006-03-30 12:17

On their most mind-blowing mission yet, the Spy Kids are about to enter an entirely new dimension: the third dimension.

On their latest assignment, under-age agents Juni and Carmen Cortez (Daryl Sabara and Alexa Vega) journey inside the virtual reality world of a cool but crazy video game, where anything is possible. Once inside they meet a power-hungry villain called the 'Toymaker' (Sylvester Stallone), who wants to take over the youth of the world, and Juni and Carmen must battle their way through tougher and tougher levels of a three-dimensional game ingeniously designed to outwit and defeat them.

Relying on their gadgetry, bravery and family bonds, the Spy Kids must win every high-flying, puzzle-solving challenge, from racing road warriors to surfing on boiling lava. Meanwhile, high-definition digital 3-D sequences and special viewing glasses give the audience a chance to interact with the larger than-life excitement on screen.

What the critics are saying:

"Robert Rodriguez has somehow misplaced his energy, his flair and his humour in this third film, which is a flat and dreary disappointment."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"...this is a throwaway caper - all whiz, bang and what-the-hell's-happening? Writer, director, editor, composer, cinematographer and producer, Rodriguez is having a laugh - he won't want you to think, just be wowed by the visuals..."
- Nev Pierce, BBCi Films

"A perfectly decent end to the Spy Kids series, but please Mr Rodriguez, that has to be it. You have delighted us long enough. It really is game over."
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Robert Rodriguez's fabulously frenetic Spy Kids franchise has finally run out of steam. Even the gimmick of 3-D glasses can't make up for this movies empty core.
