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 »
When Gerty and Juni are talking in the tree house, Gerty is drinking a cup of apple juice. When she is done, she wipes her mouth with a green napkin and puts it down. In the next shot, the napkin is still on her mouth and she puts the napkin down for the second time. 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.
