Exploring the further adventures of Carmen and Juni Cortez, who have now joined the family spy business as Level 2 OSS agents. Their new mission is to save the world from a mad scientist living on a volcanic island populated by an imaginative menagerie of creatures. On this bizarre island, none of the Cortez's gadgets work and they must rely on their wits--and each other--to survive and save the day. Written by Anthony Pereyra <hypersonic91@yahoo.com>

Goofs

When the President's daughter is on top of "The Juggler", Carmen is at the control panel, and Gerti asks her what she is doing. She answers "I'm trying to stop the ride". However, Carmen went to the panel before the secret service officer started the ride again. However, trying to stop the ride isn't necessarily the reason Carmen went to the panel in the first place.

Crazy Credits

The ending credits scroll while Carmen and Juni are somehow set to perform before a crowd of teenagers. Carmen is nervous but their Uncle 'Machete' gives them gadgets so they can perform well in front of the crowd. Then the bloopers and goofing around sequences come in, followed by a sequence where the amusement park owner (Bill Paxton) tries to talk Romero (Steve Buscemi) into establishing a theme park on the island. Finally, the Treehouse is shown getting ready for visitors. See more »

Really Fun
11 August 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another winner in Robert Rodriguez' budding `Spy Kids' franchise, equally as good as the first and showing real potential for the future. Rodriguez is perhaps the only filmmaker of kids' movies that seems to actually listen to what kids want and in the process delivers something every family member can indulge in--it's as delicious as chocolate, with plenty of giggles aimed at the seven to ten crowd and dazzling ideas and humor that parents can appreciate. Rodriguez has an extremely fertile imagination and while his visuals sometimes can't keep up (the digital effects are an occasional letdown) the concepts themselves are so ambitious and delightful that it's easy to look past the brief technological shortcomings. As in the first film, there are plenty of references to family films of the past (most notably `Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory' and the stop-action animation of Ray Harryhausen) and the overall design of both films is very similar. (Rodriguez seems to prefer shooting at twilight, giving everything an orange hue.) But it does seem more expansive, perhaps because he's creative enough to incorporate welcome new characters, such as the kids' grandparents (played with relish by Ricardo Montalban and Holland Taylor) and another brother-sister spy team (Emily Osment and Disney Channel favorite Matthew O'Leary) as well as fresh retakes on characters from the first film (Steve Buscemi takes on the Alan Cumming role). Rodriguez' screenplay once again takes on the theme of family but this time it's carried poignantly throughout (it got dropped rather quickly in `Spy Kids') and the result, coupled with his extraordinary vision, is a film that will thoroughly satisfy just about everyone.
