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.
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.Written by

Due to filming schedules, many of the actors playing characters in the final scene were never on the set at the same time and were put together digitally. See more »
After the group falls into the "lava," Carmen is signaling Juni where to go. She's holding her breath at first, then smiles at Juni, which would release all the air she was holding. She then goes back to "holding her breath." 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 2-D version of the film. 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.
