Set in an era where superheroes are commonly known and accepted, young William Stronghold, the son of the Commander and Jetstream, tries to find a balance between being a normal teenager and an extraordinary being.
Having recovered from wounds received in a failed rescue operation, Navy SEAL Shane Wolfe is handed a new assignment: Protect the five Plummer kids from enemies of their recently deceased father -- a government scientist whose top-secret experiment remains in the kids' house.
Exploring the further adventures of Carmen and Juni Cortez, who have now joined the family spy business as Level 2 OSS agents. Their new mission is to save the world from a mad scientist living on a volcanic island populated by an imaginative menagerie of creatures. On this bizarre island, none of the Cortez's gadgets work and they must rely on their wits--and each other--to survive and save the day.Written by

Whilst the sheer psychedelic lunacy of the first is toned down (although Alan Cumming does return in a brief cameo), the second outing for the Cortez kids is still gloriously imaginative filmmaking shot through with a break-neck pace. How many other kids' movies out there are knowing reworkings of 'The Island Of Dr Moreau' (check out the character of, ahem, 'Romero'), featuring Danny Trejo, Cheech Marin, Steve Buscemi, and Mike Judge in the cast?
Inspired madness. The sort of kids' movie only a deliciously warped adult with a love for the films of his / her youth could make. Funnier, faster, slicker and smarter than the flabby Bond franchise in its entirety.
