Did You Know?


In a 5/20/2004 article in The Seattle Times, movie critic Moira Macdonald notes that the world premiere of this, then 19-year-old writer/director/producer Robert Burke's first feature film, was scheduled for 6/12/2004 at the Seattle International Film Festival, that the screenplay was a revision of a screenplay he had written at age 11 for a short film, and that it was shot in the summer of 2002 in the Seattle, Washington, area with an all-local cast. She also notes that Robert Burke appeared as a child actor in The Basket (1999) (in a principal role of Helmut Brink). See more »

Just OK
9 August 2010 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Similar to "Spy Kids," this movie features 3 kids who are good at espionage, martial arts, hacking, and masterminding complicated plans. Most of their pranks, such as orchestrating a food fight at school, are harmless until they get involved in a plot to steal top-secret government files and so the movie is about them trying to recover the stolen information.

Since it's every kid's (and a few adults) dream to be a secret agent, this movie will probably occupy its target audience fairly well. However, the acting was really bad, the character development was non-existent, and the special effects weren't very special for a 2005 movie. It's also entirely unbelievable, but I expected that.

Basically, it just falls flat. It will not go down in history as a great movie, nor spin-off into a TV show, nor be the next "must buy" DVD. It just wasn't anything special. I did like the ending, though.

So, if your expectations are low, and you just want a fun, family-friendly movie to occupy your 7-year-old, go for it. You'll enjoy it. But otherwise, I wouldn't recommend.
