Kids will love the 3-D aspect of this movie.

Robert Rodriquez continues in the vein of his "Spy Kids" films with another visually frenetic kiddie crowd-pleaser that will leave adult chaperons exiting the cinema nursing headaches.

The words Robert Rodriguez would come to regret saying for years to his son: "This would make a cool movie".
September 1, 2006
A fun summer film for grade school kids, it avoids the subtle meanness and double entendres that filmmakers sometimes insert into films geared to children.

Rodriguez es un niño grande que trabaja como cineasta, pero niño al fin y al cabo. Esa es la verdadera tercera dimensión del filme, la de su corazón infantil
| Original Score: 3/4

No amount of bells & whistles can salvage a screenplay this half-baked.

A movie for kids, by kids, even if Rodriguez was there for a little bit of technical supervision.

We find only disjointed clamor and confusion amid a babble of noise and flashing lights. The movie seemed to me little more than a clever afternoon special.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

My 3-year-old kept his glasses on through most of the film, he remembered characters' names and he didn't potty in his pants. That alone is worth the price of admission.

Avoid like Sharkboy-infested waters.

Reminds us, unequivocally, why 3-D has yet to catch on. "Special" effects notwithstanding, this Robert Rodriguez quickie is strictly for the younger set.

Robert Rodriguez' paternal love for his son is admirable - but not if you have to pay the price of admission to this fumbling fiasco.

What a strange, disappointing, technically disastrous movie.

As Sharkboy, a young oceanographer raised by talking sharks, Lautner is a rare standout -- a child actor with a dark side.

Considering the fact that Sharkboy and Lavagirl is packed wall-to-wall with fantastic worlds of imagination, I'd rather have seen them in [full] color than in 3-D.

evokes a dream world to such a degree that it may evaporate from memory soon after you leave

The juvenile inspiration gives the film its creative spark, making it the coolest home movie project imaginable for a father and son.

While the movie is far from perfect, overall it's a worthy attempt.

Against the rest of Rodriguez's work, it's mostly forgettable. But it gives you the feeling he's probably a pretty cool dad.
