Set in a world where superheroes are commonly known and accepted, young Will Stronghold, the son of the Commander and Jetstream, tries to find a balance between being a normal teenager and an extraordinary being.
Under-age agents Juni and Carmen Cortez set out on their newest most mind-blowing mission yet: journeying inside the virtual reality world of a 3-D video game designed to outsmart them, as the awe-inspiring graphics and creatures of gaming come to real life. Relying on humor, gadgetry, bravery, family bonds and lightning-quick reflexes, the Spy Kids must battle through tougher and tougher levels of the game, facing challenges that include racing against road warriors and surfing on boiling lava, in order to save the world from a power hungry villain.

Prior to the film's release, it was originally announced that this would be the final Spy Kids movie, as the young actors, in particular Alexa PenaVega were literally growing out of the role. However 8 years later, "Spy Kids: All the Time in the World" was released which featured Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara in supporting roles. See more »

[Shows Juni the beta tester boys in their real life form]
Cortez, are these the boys that were in the game with you? We tracked them through their email addresses.
[Sees the boys]
Yeah that's them. They wouldn't know anything about...

Alan Cumming appears as Fegan Floop in an extended prologue to explain how to use the 3-D glasses, and when to take them on and off during the film. This prologue is not included on the 2D version of the film. See more »
My daughters are aged 9, 14, and 15. They all loved it. I liked it much better than the bogus spy kid 2. That film we had to watch sheep goo on kids heads for a full hour. This film was fast paced and made more sense if you play video games. There are many references to video game levels and how much strength left. I did not care for the one chosen "guy" who was only in it for a few seconds and please drop the computer nerd stuff and the movie did not need nerds.
The 3 D was not great but probably better in digital which only a few theaters have. The terror of the Wax museum 30 years ago had much better 3 D. All in all a fun film. Ricardo Montalban still makes an impact.
