The special effects may be in 3-D, but the story is flat, and there is very little of the quirky humor of the first two.

Robert Rodriguez's 3-D computer-aided kid flick bytes off more than it can chew.

[I]t's not really a movie, it's a video game that doesn't work.

If you loved the first two Spy Kids movies, all the more reason to take a pass on Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over.

The 3-D finale of Robert Rodriguez's cutesy children's franchise now stands as frontrunner for 2003's most mindless and physically offensive moviegoing experience.

This one is so niggling and forgettable, it may not even be worth seeing to begin with, in any dimension.

Without 3-D, Spy Kids 3-D has almost nothing to hook an audience.

[Rodriguez has] never been very good at endings, and the final 20 minutes of this new film are among his most rushed and least cohesive.

Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over is about as vibrant as a penny arcade hit by a sudden power outage...is indeed one grand video excursion that needs to be unplugged.

Although Rodriguez did write the script, he must have done so in Level One of his brain.

What's disappointing is that, unlike before, filmmaker Robert Rodriguez is more passionate about the film's machinery and less so about its motifs.

The all-CGI, cartoon-inspired game F/X are undeniably cool in three dimensions...but Rodriguez aims lamentably low in almost every other aspect of the movie

It's like an Ed Wood movie, so earnest and so desperately sure of itself in all its nutty, clueless glory, so obviously flown in from another planet at great expense.

Though Rodriguez's seeming one-man operation is somewhat impressive in concept, the results are decidedly inferior to most action/adventure fare.
