Lots of fun while making little sense
15 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

"Spy Kids 2" is creative,energetic and and lots of fun...while at the same time being quite weird and not making a whole lot of sense.This really can't be considered a spy movie,because it goes pretty far off from the idea that these 2 kids could be spies.This movie really has more in common with the "Men in Black" and the "Mummy" movies than it does with James Bond,but it's a very enjoyable flick anyway.

I got to wonder...does this spy organization,the OSS...do they take on really bizarre assignments and leave the serious work to the FBI and CIA? That's the only way this organization could ever exist.

I enjoyed all the creatures made for this movie.It looks like they had alot of fun thinking them up.The gadgets are a bit far fetched but pretty damn cool anyway.The kids are solid in this and likeable.Steve Buscemi has an interesting and enjoyable role has a mad scientist.

This movie is weirder and more out there than the 1st Spy Kids,which was quite weird and out there.Even though both are hard to believe,and even though both don't make too much both sense,both are great entertainment and great fun.Both movies are funny,colorful,creative and full of imagination and action.I'll give the edge to the first "Spy Kids" as the better movie,but "spy Kids 2" is a worthy sequel.
