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}

Character Driven "Spykids"
10 May 2003 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

"Agent Cody Banks" depends more on character and plot than the special effects, explosive action of the more popular "Spykids." Frankie Muniz does a credible, funny job as a social inept, CIA whiz kid. With a distant resemblance to "True Lies," and "Never Been Kissed," "Agent Cody Banks" charms the audience with its irony and socially naive kid comedy along with a rather strong James Bond flavor for spy action. Frankie Muniz' CIA handler never gets too sickly sweet nor weird, but handles her role with a solid performance. This movie is a nice blend of genre, but it doesn't explode into non-stop action nor with a teen romantic comedy - perhaps it's taken on a rather awesome, big challenge of trying to package so many different elements into one movie that its comedy, spy thriller, action, teen romance with nerd genre are impossible to capture successfully in the time and attention span alloted. Entertaining and seriously funny, seven out of ten stars.
