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}

Harald Zwart (who wrote and directed the great Norwegian short film "Parents") directed this shot, that could be seen as a curious mixture between Robert Rodriguez's "Spy Kids", Ian Fleming's "James Bond series" and those Saturday morning cartoons, however real action buffs should be warned: there´s nearly no action and nearly no suspense in this flick, even the above-mentioned films are more exciting than "Agent Cody Banks"! The synthesizer-score sounds like as if it was stolen from Fleming´s movies or Rodriguez's series and the only notable thing is the appearance of "Baywatch babe"-legend Angie Harmon - unfortunately, she doesn´t save the film at all! Yawn...
