The kids had a lot of fun
13 October 2013 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Zipi and Zape are two ten year old twins. They are not mean but they are not the brightest students either. They get caught cheating and their parents sent them to a strict summer school. There they make friends, defy authority and hunt a treasure.

The story is fun but predictable, it is a kids story anyway, but had a couple of nice twists. It is similar to The Goonies, as they also hunt for a treasure, and not really related to the Zipi & Zape comic book, but in the name of the two main characters. The cast is fine though some of the child actors could do better. The sets, locations and CGI effects are gorgeous.

The kids must sneak around at night, so many times it is dark and there are some scary moments. There are no monsters and the most menacing characters are a dog and the principal, so it is not really a big deal. There is no violence but a punch in the end of the movie, also the audience would feel pity for a main character being grounded alone several times in a row.

There are some nice role models like when the kids stand by a small boy being bullied or when they work as a team. On the downside there are some stereotypes, like the fat kid ( not so fat anyway ) , the sick boy with a condition, or the braver-than-the-boys-girl. They end up being a nice outsider gang where everyone is admitted.

The last act is a roller coaster and audience cheered as the stars progress in their quest being chased away by the evil guys. The movie is quite fun, the kids loved it and the grown ups had a good time also.
