Storyline

A government agent trains a typical teenager Cody Banks who loves to skateboard, hates math, and feels like a complete idiot around girls, in the ways of covert operations that require younger participants. But Cody's got a secret--he's actually part of a secret teen CIA program. Cody's living every boy's dream life--he can drive like a stunt man, has an incredible arsenal of cool gadgets, and his agency mentor, Ronica Miles, is totally hot. But Cody's training is put to the test when he's sent to pose as a prep school student and befriend fellow teen Natalie Connors in order to gain access to her father--a scientist unknowingly developing a fleet of deadly pair of twisted villains called the nanobots for the evil organization ERIS, which can destroy any carbon or silicon-based substance-to destroy the world's defense systems so he can threaten anyone who opposes him. From runaway cars and high-speed snowboard chases to a spectacular final mountaintop showdown, Cody has to use ... Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Great!
16 March 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised. I expected something like "Spy Kids" but it wasn't. I found it very entertaining, and I really appreciate the fact that they made a pretty serious movie. I also like the concept of a teen CIA agent. Good action. Frankie Muniz was perfect for the part. Thank you.
