To be honest, my first glimpse at a preveiw of Spy Kids had me thinking "Stupid. Cheesy acting, pointless plot!" And when I first saw it in 2001, my thoughts weren't changed.
Now I'm 14, and I decided to rent it again because I'm a movie fanatic, and Spy Kids deserved another chance. This movie had me laughing like no other and anxiously waiting to see what was going to happen next. Now that I'm older I can see the movie in a more in-depth perspective and I can appreciate the lessons it has for audiences.
Antonio Banderas had me wondering at one point why he would go from great movies such as Evita to a kid flick like Spy Kids, but he plays his role perfectly. Alexa Vega and the other kid (I forget his name?) portray siblings excellently, and the lessons learned between them both are very realistic. And for humor, two thumbs up for Alan Cumming as Floop. He's a phenomenal actor, and seeing X-Men 2 one day (where he plays the blue, german-accented, teleporting Nightcrawler), and then Spy Kids the next (where he plays a comical, depressed villain) had me wondering just how he handles his accents so well.
This movie deserves 5 stars! If you're a serious person, don't bother seeing it; you have to be a fun-loving, easily humoured person to truly appreciate it (think of it this way - just the plain fact that Floop's Fooglies are so ugly and stupid has me laughing hysterically. I can laugh at anything!). Great kids movie as well as family movie.

Robert Rodriguez' (The Faculty, From Dusk Till Dawn, Roadracers) made an different kind of family movie that has some originality and feel much fresher than the usual Hollywood-type family comedy. "Spy Kids" was one of Rodriguez' biggest hits, he had with Hollywood that produced three other sequels (I didn't see the fourth one yet).

Since Rodriguez' wrote the script, the movie is often imaginative and funny that it is aimed for kids only but some adults still have some fun with this. The Blu-ray acutally is the unoffical Director's Cut of this movie will three minutes of additional footage. The sequence, where the kids have to swin under Floop's lair to get through the secret passage but surrounded themselves with sleeping sharks! Since, it is a "Blu-ray" "DVD" Combo. The DVD contains the original theatrical version, the sequence sneak in too easily to swin to Floop's lair without any danger. Because Rodriguez never got to finish the sequence, while filming the movie originally. When the movie become an big hit, Rodriguez got to finish the sequence, he originally intended. Which it was briefly re-release as "Spy Kids:Special Edition". Which it was only seen in theaters until the Blu-ray release from last year.

The Blu-ray has an sharp anamorphic 1080P (1.85:1) transfer and an strong DTS HD 5.1 Surround Track. Blu-ray features has recent interviews with Rodriguez, Alexa Vega, Daryl Sabara and more mixed with vintage interviews. Where all the original three films are talked about and more. Sadly no Rodriguez commentary, which he gives plenty of information and trivia in all his commentary track on Blu-ray or DVD. The original DVD has no special features and that version is the original theatrical version.

This is like Bond for the family, some say... Yeah, right. If your child has ever seen a Bond movie, he (or she) will be more inclined to like Bond more, depending on which era of special effects they've seen. If you want this as a taste of Bond, think again. Spy movies are all over, all of which are more Bond-esque: I Spy, xXx, The Bourne Identity, Minority Report (does that count?) Agent Cody Banks, Agent Cody Banks 2 (both PG) and, of course, the real thing, Die Another Day. However, if you're in the mood for zany action, zanier gadgets, wacky villains, odd creatures, and jokes that you don't have to think about... then you found it. There are three choices of summer entertainment for your kid. If they're an action/spy fan, take 'em to Spy Kids. If they like the talking animal thing, it's Ice Age, or better yet, Cats and Dogs. And if they aren't fussy about their comedy but have some understanding of more sophisticated humor, Shrek's the deal. Monsters Inc. is endearing, but not particularly funny.
Carmen and Juni are just two ordinary kids, even if Carmen has a habit of skipping school and Juni is picked on for his obsession with a certain TV show. But what they don't know are that their parents are really retired spies. (It'd be hard for them not to be, with the looks of Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino.) The two spy parents are called out of retirement to investigate the disappearance of three fellow agents. Since they're a little rusty, they quickly are caught. Carmen and Juni are sent by their Uncle Felix (not really related) to the "safehouse." They meet a spy there, who tells them a little about the "third brain," but that's just before she steals it and escapes with misshapen thugs.

This is not a movie I could sit and enjoy with my kids. I thought it was a very promising idea, but one huge mistake ruins the entire idea.
They took two ordinary-looking kids and gave them super powers. No they didn't, you say? Well, in the first minutes of the film, the kids go to work out in their own private gym. Suddenly these ordinary kids are leaping and flipping about as if they have donned jet-packs. Their leaping and flipping is accompanied by the obligatory swishing and zooming sound effects. Ick.
What should have been a film about a couple of ordinary homely kids working hard and using their guts and determination to save their beautiful, talented spy-parents turns into a contrived special effects extravaganza. We're supposed to suspend belief and buy that these two kids can do extraordinary physical feats just because their parents are spies?
Subtleties are so often lost on Hollywood. There are so many movies that do it better. If you want to see kids use their guts and courage to survive adversity (without obvious special effects) try Adventures in Babysitting. Even Home Alone is more believable than the Spy Kids drivel.
