All Critics (148) | Top Critics (37) | Fresh (62) | Rotten (75) | DVD (30)

I like the movie, but hate its presentation.

Top Critic

[I]t's not really a movie, it's a video game that doesn't work.

Full Review… | July 28, 2003
Ebert & Roeper
Top Critic

A movie that aims for the fun and sensation of being inside a video game, but not a whole lot more.

July 25, 2003
Washington Post
Top Critic

Differs from its predecessors in some important -- and occasionally unfortunate -- ways.

This third installment follows up on the thrills and dazzling visuals that charmed audiences in the first film.

Rodriguez may have overreached his abilities with this film.

Spy Kids 3 is much sharper and funnier than the second outing, but the missing pieces, namely the parents and sister, are sorely needed.

Full Review… | January 29, 2012

Kids will love it, but adults may find it flat.

Full Review… | December 28, 2010
Common Sense Media

Rodriguez knows how to evoke the imagination in children with such an enjoyable family yarn.

Full Review… | April 29, 2009
Cinema Crazed

Retains the homemade virtues that made the earlier installments such an un-selfconscious, pleasingly clunky delight.

Full Review… | January 21, 2005

...watching in 3-D is annoying and watching in 2-D is pointless. Kind of a losing situation.

Full Review… | February 19, 2004
Movie Metropolis

A loser in any dimension....As if one Stallone wasn't bad enough, Rodriguez gives us three of them.

Full Review… | February 9, 2004

Where Rodriguez falls short... is in relying on the computer generated special effects to make up for problems in the script.

Full Review… | January 2, 2004

Robert Rodriguez continues to pillage from past adventure genres, but the experience is about the boundless creativity of kids' dreams, not retro nostalgia.

Full Review… | September 20, 2003

While the film as a whole is still good fun, it lacks the freewheeling glee of the first two.

Full Review… | September 12, 2003
Shadows on the Wall

If the old red and blue 3-D glasses make your eyes hurt, you may have to skip this one, but that's the only bad thing you can say about it.

Full Review… | September 8, 2003

A movie so awful that those headaches spurred by the film's shoddy optics effects seem minor by comparison.

Full Review… | August 28, 2003
Tampa Bay Times

The 3-D is crap. And Rodriguez should have had more sense than to make Juni the star of the show.

August 24, 2003

Even without the 3-D, set pieces such as a high-octane race and a faceoff between two giant robots would be surefire adrenaline rushes.

Full Review… | August 20, 2003

Don't go unless you're in a good mood and you want to re-live a silly movie technique from your childhood. In the right frame of mind, this movie can be a blast.

Full Review… | August 17, 2003

With 3D glasses on or off, it doesn't measure up to its predecessors.

Full Review… | August 14, 2003

I was too bored to be properly angry, and too disgusted to be properly lulled to sleep. Robert has betrayed us all.

Full Review… | August 8, 2003

It?s a blast -- fun for the whole family.

Full Review… | August 7, 2003

Like any gimmick, once the initial intrigue of the 3-D has been satiated you're left looking at Game Over like you would with any other. And once you start looking at [it] like any other film you quickly realize it's boring.

Full Review… | August 7, 2003

Rodriguez's movie still has enough shiny objects popping off the screen to make it a satisfactory summer distraction.

Full Review… | August 5, 2003

certainly the least of the series because it continues the slide in character development that began in the second movie

Audience Reviews for Spy Kids 3-D - Game Over


The third installment should have been avoided immediately from the subtitle (Game Over). Spy Kids 3-D strays away from its usual flare and is blatantly cliche and is only attainable as a visual decent film. Other than its somewhat-ineffective 3-D effects as well as its addition to supporting roles, the film has nothing else going for it 2.5/5

Now this is an example of when the filmakers decide to open the cash till and do nothing else. Spy Kids 3 takes advantage of children with its promised exciting adventure but all it delivers is the above average 3D.

a big step back from the previous two. still entertaining, but instead of furthering the spy/james bond for kids storyline, we get a movie built for the 3D gimmick and strangled by the video game plot. ok, but missing something.

What a horrible movie, its an embarassment to the cool franchise. This story was completely borig, idiotic, and dull, with new characters that will bore the hell out of you. They even got rid of Carmen in the movie for like 2/3 of the film, it was so bad. I still love the first 2, but this was completely awful.
