  • Rodriguez seems to be trying too hard to cram in too much - more gadgets, more characters, more noise, more color. But bigger, brighter and faster isn't necessarily better.

  • Rodriguez seems to have forgotten that making a spectacle is not the same thing as creating a sense of wonder.

  • I didn't like the first one enough to recommend it. I liked this one even less.

  • Given the appeal of his first movie, Rodriguez had a big act to follow. Spy Kids ' progeny, though slightly lacking in the warmth of the first, should no doubt please audiences.

  • With Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams, the Spy Kids franchise establishes itself as a durable part of the movie landscape: a James Bond series for kids.

  • There's enough here to keep the sequel rocking, providing you can leave the adult in you at the door.

Audience Reviews for Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams


Rodriguez's sequel to the family-fun adventure expands even more and is visually advanced. Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams goes beyond its normal concept and is loosely yet efficient. With a much more expanded cast of supporting actors and its usual charm makes for a slight improvement than its predecessor. 4.5/5

A marginal improvement on its predecessor but its still lacking any charm and like the first it isn't that exciting

as good as the first if not slightly better. the monsters were a fun touch, and the furthering of the OSS storyline with the kids division was fun as well. cheesy, but fun to watch with the kids.

Spy Kids 2 is a great sequel and a very fun one too, maybe better than the first. The plot was very funa nd kids will love it, but most parents will be bored, but its called Spy kids, not Spy Adults. The characters are the same and just as fun, with even new characters who you either love or hate. Your kids will fall in love with this stff, because when i was a kid, i sure did, and I still do.
