The Bond films never feel dated, and neither does Agent Cody Banks. It still plays well, and for that credit the special effects that compare favorably to today's films and the fact that high school never seems to change.

Muniz and Duff seem to be two perfectly normal teenagers thrown in the midst of an elaborate fantasy, and they pull it off beautifully.

Dreadful, witless and pointless.

A bland and condescending adaptation of an adult action film for a younger audience.

Zwart pulls out enough stops in action sequences involving jet-propelled skateboards, stunt drives and mountain rescues to keep the ball rolling nicely.

The movie is bouncy and colourful, and cheesy in a nice way, but it outstays its welcome in the last half hour.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

A formulaic Hollywood 'crowd-pleaser' that can be summed up in three words ('Teenage James Bond!').
| Original Score: 2/5

This may be a case of mission unaccomplished, but the future looks brighter for Cody Banks than it does for Austin Powers.

...Cody Banks is a little older than the Spy Kids and, consequently, more into the girl thing. I'm not sure it improves the picture.

Se você quer conhecer jovens espiões que realmente mereçam sua atenção, as melhores opções ainda são os dois Pequenos Espiões e o tenso Os Heróis Não Têm Idade.

Muniz is an extremely likeable actor and the fact that Banks is meant to be pathologically shy around girls offers a handy point of identification for its target audience.

It's as though for every good idea the movie has, someone from the writing committee jumped in and said, 'Yeah, but let's put a fart joke right after that.'

Never quite as funny as it could have been, Agent Cody Banks is nevertheless far too genial to dislike.

A childish version of the James Bond story about an awkward teen thrust into a mission to save the world.

Has a surprisingly grown-up feel to it ... which makes it more entertaining for everyone watching.

Will kids enjoy this? Well, does a child like candy?

When [Muniz's] Cody gets close to a girl, there is an eager terror on his face and in his body language that hits the adolescence angst nail squarely on the head.

There's just something about Muniz. He's so gosh darn cute with those big, blue, sincere eyes.
