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.

Robert Rodriguez wrote the role of 'The Guy' with him in mind. Wood had previously starred in Rodriguez's The Faculty (1998) shortly before finding out about The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001). The suit that Wood wore was originally one for the character Juni, but they spray-painted it silver and Cellotaped it to him as it barely fit. In the shot where Wood is kneeling down, talking to the others, he is actually looking at the ground to give the impression that he is towering over everybody. See more »
After Juni wins the Mega Race, he stands up on his "hubcap," but in the next shot you see Juni flip the hubcap up like a skateboard. Juni never moved, but all of a sudden he's off the hubcap. 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.
