Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London Reviews

March 16, 2004
Really pretty hateful, shooting for the bulk of its laughs at the expense of those wacky foreign kids and the endlessly humiliated Anthony Anderson.

... tedious, forgettable and wholly unnecessary.
March 12, 2004
Kids should be reasonably diverted for a couple of hours, but odds are they'll have forgotten the whole thing by the next morning.
March 12, 2004
Here's just about everything a 6-year-old spy would hope to find in a kiddie-espionage flick, with just a twinge of romance, but nothing serious to interrupt Cody's undoubtedly continuing career.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Kids may well find the film diverting, but there's just not a lot of creativity or energy here.

The same young teens who cozied up to the first picture will probably enjoy the sequel, but it won't win many new fans.

March 12, 2004
Even by kiddie-flick standards, this one, directed by Kevin Allen, is astonishingly lame.

Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London should have been stopped at customs -- as family entertainment, it constitutes child abuse.

March 12, 2004
With lots of cool gadgets, plenty of silliness and a clever concept guaranteed to appeal to preteens, this should be an unflagging, high-octane romp.

As ingenious and lively as the original film.

After 90 minutes of diligently searching the premises of ACB2, no evidence of mass entertainment can be found.

Director Kevin Allen offers a lot more gadgets in Cody 2, but surprisingly little in the way of memorable action.

March 12, 2004
Apart from funny supporting work by the inventor of the Mind Control and the guy in the 'Q' role, the movie is pretty routine.

March 12, 2004
No matter how adorable you think Muniz is, it's becoming increasingly hard to buy him as a socially inept teenager/spy.

March 12, 2004
An uninspired caper that gains nothing from picture-postcard London backdrops.
March 11, 2004
Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London is simply not worth the trip.

This is as joyless a spy caper as one could devise.

The subversive humor that occasionally brightened Agent Cody Banks is absent from this sophomore effort.

March 11, 2004
Muniz's considerable charm keeps things moving along briskly, and there's more than enough here to keep pic's target audience engaged.
March 11, 2004
Muniz is quite winning as a plucky teen who is constantly being thrown into situations over his head. But the usually reliable Anthony Anderson e-mails in his performance as Cody's handler.

March 11, 2004
A nonsuspenseful and painfully unfunny series of comic stunts that try to have sport with the image of the garrulous American abroad.

March 11, 2004
The first Cody Banks worked by playing on the immense gap between secret-agent sophistication and hormonal teenage awkwardness; volume 2 never finds a similar conceit to milk.
March 11, 2004
The teen Bond's latest mission finds the would-be franchise creatively Banks-rupt.
March 11, 2004
So, will your kids like this same old song with British scenery? Possibly, if they liked the last one, but a little less-so.

Malcolm loyalists are too sophisticated for this simple script, and fans of the spy genre have so many better options.

March 10, 2004
There's just too much spy in young Cody, and too little kid.
