- Carmen and Juni think their parents are boring. Little do they know that in their day, Gregorio and Ingrid Cortez were the top secret agents from their respective countries. They gave up that life to raise their children. Now, the disappearances of several of their old colleagues forces the Cortez' return from retirement. What they didn't count on was Carmen and Juni joining the "family business."
- The children of secret-agent parents must save them from danger.
- In his fifth feature, Robert Rodriguez really sticks to his cinematic guns. While doing press for Desperado, Rodriguez claimed he was trying to create a hero for the Hispanic and Latino community, akin to Chow Yun Fat in John Woo's movies. He accomplishes this and much more in Spy Kids, and refreshingly without any of the Pc hang-ups that his predecessors and contemporaries often fall victims to. You'll find no lamentations on the racial condition here, just a family of crime fighters who just happen to be Hispanic, and a story that just happens to take place in Spain. Having long since proven himself a more than capable director, Rodriguez stretches his storytelling muscles in the unfamiliar arena of a children's film. Gregorio and Ingrid Cortez are retired spy parents to their precocious children Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni (Daryl Sabara). Although wowed by their mother's bedtime stories, which recount unbeknownst to the kids, the adventures of the Spy Parents, Carmen and Juni find their parents boring, and suffer from the usual problems that plague children. Carmen is the bossy older sister who `just wants out of this family' (indeed everyone has a bone to pick with another family member) and pokes fun at her brothers perpetual state of fright. Juni is the younger brother with his head in the clouds, shy with imaginary friends, and a hand full of warts. Juni's only real interest seems to be in the children's show Floog's Fooblies. Gregorio's secretive ways are blown when he and Ingrid are called back into duty to help locate several kidnapped spies. When the aforementioned Floog, who'd been mutating the spies into Fooblies, captures them the kids are awakened to their parents' past and forced to save them. In a nutshell this is the plot of Spy Kids, but what's the most enjoyable (and what should be in all adventure stories of this kind) is the trip getting there. Once introduced to their spy lineage by their ''fake' uncle (Cheech Marin), Carmen and Juni are meant to make sense of the various spy gadgets their parents own, as well as piecing together a plan to save their parents, not to mention who to trust while doing so. Their journey takes them to San Diablo, where they meet their estranged real uncle Machete (Danny Trejo), who is a master spy gadget maker, through the ocean in a submarine, and finally to Floog's island. What allows Spy Kids to truly call itself a `family film', is that as Carmen and Juni's journey progresses, so does their understanding and appreciation of family. What makes such a clichéd moral bearable, not to mention fresh, is Rodriguez's story telling and direction. Awesome-as-usual cinematography from Guillermo Navarro, and Rodriguez's action sequences make you forget you're watching a children's movie, let alone one with a message present in every bad children's movie you've ever seen. Imagine the slow- motion-trench-coat- shots for Hong Kong action films scaled down to four-foot level. It's good to see Rodriguez and his stable of actors back on target after the Faculty. It will be good to see what they have to offer next
- Spy Kids: ***1/2<br/><br/>"Spy Kids" is fresh, funny, and, most importantly, original. Who would have thought that the director of some of the most goriest movies would make such a fun film for kids and adults. <br/><br/>"Spy Kids" is about the Cortez's. The two parents are spies. They claim to be retired but when several secret agents go missing they go to try and solve the case. But they have been kidnapped and now it's up to their unknowing kids to help save them. This leads to numerous funny scenes while the children prepare.<br/><br/>Robert Rodriquez directed "Spy Kids" and it's just wonderful. It's such a delight. Watching the movie, it was like a Tim Burton movie gone retarded. The visuals are stunning and at times funny. It's "The Cell" for youngsters. And the fact that Danny Elfman did the theme didn't hurt at all. He is one of the best movie composers of our time. <br/><br/>The two children are such a treat. They act like adults and that is what makes it funny. They take the movie seriously which isn't true for most child actors (ahem, Jonathan Lipinski). And look for George Clooney, who has a cameo. I must say one thing, Alan Cumming is one the most underrated actors. He is brilliant as Floop. Scary and sort of charming and caring at the same time. <br/><br/>"Spy Kids" is a wonderful, inventive, slightly brilliant movie that's great for the whole family.
- As a piece of almost dadaist filmmaking, Spy Kids is great fun with its continual spirit of invention.
