Rodriguez es un niño grande que trabaja como cineasta, pero niño al fin y al cabo. Esa es la verdadera tercera dimensión del filme, la de su corazón infantil
| Original Score: 3/4
| Original Score: 3/5
As Sharkboy, a young oceanographer raised by talking sharks, Lautner is a rare standout -- a child actor with a dark side.
The juvenile inspiration gives the film its creative spark, making it the coolest home movie project imaginable for a father and son.
| Original Score: B-
While the movie is far from perfect, overall it's a worthy attempt.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
A rare window into a child's uninhibited imagination and protean playfulness, tricked out with tongue-in-cheek 3-D effects as seen through one blue lens and one red one.
| Original Score: 3/4
You can't get this kind of full-on sensory-jolt anywhere else, not legally anyway.
Rodriguez World is a unique cinematic space that only truly inspired children, and child-men, could bring to life.
Barely fresh...and then only for 10 year olds and younger.
| Original Score: 6/10
Not only is it empowering to kids just learning to trust their own ideas, but, like Spy Kids, it reminds kids that fighting is not always the answer.
| Original Score: B+
Rodriguez would be advised to take a step back from the chintzy, plastic red-and-blue eyewear since what's on the screen is already more than enough.
Okay, it's simplistic Saturday-morning-cartoon stuff, but it's so cool looking that the younger set will be taken in.
The Adventures of SB & LG, are a family funtime extravaganza!...
| Original Score: 4/4
Bizarre and (if you can endure the glasses) visually interesting.
There is such a joy of play in the film that it's easy to overlook the overdone performances and the lazy script shortcuts.
| Original Score: B
Strikes a nice balance of gee-whiz fantasy and tongue-in-cheek humor.
It's an imaginative movie, likably performed by kids who seem awkwardly real and featuring swell messages about friendship and unselfishness.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Visually, the film is impressive. Rodriguez has an incredible imagination and the computer skills to bring it to vivid life.
[A] slight but immensely enjoyable charmer.
Every time you stop to catch your breath, the movie's round, electric eyes stare up at you and push you to keep going. After all, the sun's up and bedtime is an eternity away.
