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.

The opening scene of a closed-down water park is of Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels, TX. See more »
Right before the "mega race" starts, one of the "beta tester" kids turns around to the audience as if he were addressing Juni and says "we'll try to help you out as much as we can" but the vehicle that Juni is driving is clearly visible in front of him as he says it. See more »
Why is it that every video game has lava in it?
Technically, that's not true. There's no lava in Halo. And in Metroid, it's molten magma.

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 »
I was bored the other night and thought to myself, "I have never seen a 3D movie before and all the hype they are giving to Spy Kids 3D, I should go check it out." I bought my ticket not expecting a good plot but at least expecting decent special effect and a 3 Dimensional experience.
The special effects were crappy- The movie would have been better if they either had just shown the green screen instead of the virtual world or if the grandfather had died. I think the producer's objective was to dig into the Hollywood Actor Welfare Hat and pull out the names of several really poor actors.
Defining moment: when the theater had to call an ambulance for me after I slobbered onto the floor from a seizure induced by probably some of the crappiest, blurriest special effects I have ever seen.
One last thing- these people that make movies for kids can't use their audience as an excuse for stupid crap like this. Anyone who has seen Spirited Away or Princess Mononoke knows that there is talent and creativity our there that can be used to make movies for children.
