After Spy Kids 2 came out, I was decently surprised. It was better than the 1st, and actually kind of good. Maybe the franchise had hope. Maybe the 3rd one would actually be kind of good. I couldn't have been more wrong.
Let's start from bad to worst. First of all, there are some major plot holes. In the ending scene, the 2 kids only have about 5 3d glasses that will allow them to see their enemies. But SOMEHOW they are able to give glasses to like 500 people. No, I don't get it either. And why is there nobody in the streets when the robots attack? No civilians, no cops, no dogs nobody. It looks like a modern freaking ghost town!
The special affects were bad. And when I say bad I mean baby geniuses bad. They look like something out of the first Tron movie. Maybe it would have been impressive like 40 years ago, but definatley not anymore.
Finally, we have the acting. Oh, the acting. I have nightmares just thinking about the acting. Daryl Sabara's acting was so overly done, it made Jeremy Irons from Dunegons and Dragons look normal. And that is ESPECIALLY so when a dramatic scene is about to happen. Like when Demetra get's killed, he looks like he just crapped his pants or something. The only person in the movie who had good acting was Elijah Wood, who was in it for like 2 seconds. Yes, Elijah Wood. One of the greatest and most underrated actors in the buisness is in Spy Kids 3D. Let that sink in.
Then there's the ending. What exactly happens? Well basically, at first it looks cool, like the Grandpa and the bad guy are gonna have a final battle or something, but he really just sees him to FORGIVE HIM! And then the bad guy CANCELS HIS EVIL PLANS!! And then everybody FORGIVES HIM because he is now FAMILY!!!
Bottom line, this is a horrible movie. A horrible, horrible movie. This was the guy who made Once Upon a Time In Mexico! You went from that to this?
