Set in an era where superheroes are commonly known and accepted, young William Stronghold, the son of the Commander and Jetstream, tries to find a balance between being a normal teenager and an extraordinary being.
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

When "falling" into the volcano, Carmen asks Juni how long they have been falling and he guesses "about 3 hours". He should have known that they couldn't have been actually falling for that length of time as it would only take 42 minutes to fall right though the Earth. See more »
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 »
As the story begins, Juni and Carmen Cortez are agents on the rise in the new Spy Kids division of the OSS. Despite all of their skills and accomplishments, they're denied a promotion in the agency as a result of blatant nepotism. Still determined to make their markand more importantly to upstage a pair of rival agentsthey intervene in a mission to travel to a mysterious island and retrieve a sophisticated thingamajig that could be a potent threat if it falls into the wrong hands. Engaging sequel is far less cheesy than its predecessor, has a much better story, and lots of imaginative visual effects accompanied by exciting, cliffhanger action scenes. Overlong, and still corny at times, but has just enough ingredients to entertain all audiences. ***
