Silly and no need for it, Completely different to the first two and very disappointing, I can't comment on the 3D as I watched the 2D version but I heard it wasn't great, As much as I love Stallone he shouldn't of been cast in it I felt kind of embarrassed for him.
The spy kids movies are a fine example of films that didnt age well but at the very least you could enjoy the first two for their low budget charm and for many a nostalgia factor. But spy kids 3D is nothing more than visual aids for the eye with visual effects worse than even the video games of the time. movies with low budget effects arent allways bad with godzilla vs destroyah being a prime example but the film lacks substance. When your film is a style over substance film with no style your in serious trouble. I will say however the film is watchable if your young having nothing in the means of being vulgar or offensive so maybe kids can get into it but in my opinion this film is awful.
Boring, just boring. Can't help but feel the only reason this movie got made was because of 3D. The characters were cliché and annoying and the story was bland. Nothing in this movie had the fun I thought the other movies had in spades.
I suppose I'm not really the audience for this since I don't really like Robert Rodriguez very much and among films of his I didn't like, "Spy Kids" is joined by "Planet Terror" and "Machete" as films of his I actively hate. All that said ... this might be one of the laziest films I've ever seen. The film is set inside a video game. It doesn't look like a video game. Even by early 2000's standards, the computer animation looks cheap and shoddy. The main villain in the film is played by Stallone ... a notably limited actor. So of course he is asked to play 4 different characters ... or 1 character and 3 alternate personalities of that character ... I don't know, he's terrible and I stopped paying attention.
