Movie Info

Gregorio and Ingrid are the two greatest secret agents the world has ever known: masters of disguise, mavens of invention, able to stop wars before they even start. Working for separate countries, they are sent to eliminate their most dangerous enemy...each other. But in an exotic corner of the world when they finally come face to face, they fall in love instead and embark on the most dangerous mission they have ever faced: raising a family. Now, nine years later, after their retirement, having exchanged the adventure of espionage for parenthood, Gregorio and Ingrid Cortez are called back into action. When their former colleagues, the world's most formidable spies, start disappearing one by one, the Cortez's are forced to take on techno-wizard Fegan Floop and his evil, egg-headed sidekick, Minion. But when the unthinkable happens and they too disappear, there are only two people in the world who can rescue them...their kids. Armed with a bag of high tech gadgets and out-of-this world transportation, Carmen and Juni will bravely jet through the air, dive under the seas and crisscross the globe in a series of thrilling adventures on a mission to stop Floop, save their parents...and maybe even the world. Sometimes the biggest heroes are the smallest ones.

Audience Reviews for Spy Kids

  • Aug 23, 2015
    Incredibly cheesy and dumb, Spy Kids is a family action-comedy from writer/director Robert Rodriguez. When a husband and wife spy team is captured by a megalomaniacal children's show host who's building a robot army, their kids embark on a mission to rescue them. The adult supporting cast is rather good and includes Antonio Banderas, Carla Gugino, Alan Cumming, and Teri Hatcher. But it's the kids that have to carry the film, and while Alexa Vega gives a fairly good performance (for a child actor), Daryl Sabara is intolerably bad (poisoning every seen he's in). And, the special effects and costumes look extremely cheap and cartoonish (especially the green screen backgrounds). Knowing Rodriguez, this is probably an intentional homage to '50s sci-fi, but the look doesn't work. Also, the comedy is extraordinarily juvenile, lacking any cleverness or subtlety. A poorly made film, Spy Kids is an insulting piece of garbage.

    Robert Rodriguez tones down on the violent and vulgar vibe he's accustomed too and trades it with fun and family-oriented adventures, and it actually pays off. Spy Kids is engaging and has enough for children as well as adults to enjoy. 4/5

    Pretty fun film, Silly in places but enjoyable and different, Kids will like it and it has a very likable cast.

    The biggest problem with this movie is that we can't take the secret agents, who are fighting evil Thumbs and "Fooglies", seriously.
