Spy Kids is a James Bond adventure for wee ones, with all the trimmings. This affable fantasy begins with Carmen and Juni Cortez soon to find out that their favourite bedtime story, "The Spies Who Fell in Love", is really the story of their parents. When Dad and Mom (Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino) mess up their first mission after coming out of retirement, their kids must come to the rescue, equipped with some cool gadgets. The Cortez family gets involved in a bizarre plot hatched by a Pee-wee Herman-type entertainer named Fegan Floop (a wonderfully hammy Alan Cumming) that's as giddy as it is ridiculous. Needless to say there is plenty of derring-do concerning long-lost uncles, goofy monsters, double agents, evil robots, look-alikes, and energised chases. Did we mention the gadgets? Although Banderas and Gugino make terrific impressions, the movie is carried (as it should be) by the younger Cortezes, winningly played by Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara. Who would have thought an action/horror studio (Dimension) and writer-director Robert Rodriquez had this pleasing family film u p their sleeves? Rodriquez (who produced with his wife Elizabeth Avellán) seemed to be mired in cheesy horror films but here breaks out by capitalising on the talent that gave him instant status with his debut, El Mariachi (1992). Spy Kids has plenty of verve but never swerves into potty humour (OK, there is one good potty joke) or wicked gunplay. All 7-year-olds should have a film as fun as this in their film-going lives. --Doug Thomas,

5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative, Fun Family Film 29 Jan 2003
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Carmen and Juni are two kids who are just trying to grow up. Carmen resents always having to look out for her brother, and Juni is constantly afraid of everything and is the bullies' favorite target at school. But one day, they learn that their parents are really spies who have been kidnapped. The kids soon realize that they alone must find and rescue them. Along the way, Carmen and Juni will have to learn to work as a family if they have any hope of returning home alive.
This is a delightful film the entire family can enjoy together. The plot is cleaver and entertaining so everyone will enjoy it, and the characters are endearing. I especially love the scene where Juni meets his hero Floop and gives him advice. There is definitely a strong message about the importance of family, but it is brought out by the story and never feels too preachy.
A movie with this much imagination doesn't come along very often. Children of all ages will enjoy this purely escapist adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Good for just Kids............. 1 Nov 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I must admit i didnt think i would like this HOW WRONG WAS I ,this is such a good movie i would suggest that anyone who hasnt seen it do so NOW.
The story concerns the two children of former secret agents who are now living a normal life when their parents are kidnapped the kids are told by the 'Uncle'that they have to save them
cue 90 minutes of great comedy effects driven filmmaking from Robert Rodriguez a veritable 1 man band-he wrote and directed the movie edited and produced and even wrote some of the music ,the two juvenile leads are great and so is Alan Cumming as the bad guy who turns goos there are also great turns from Robert Patrick and Teri Hatcher and the action whizzes by and it really is one of those movies you wish were 20 minutes longer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie let down by lack of extras 24 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Spykids was one of those cinema sleepers that is destined to become a classic.
I only went to see it when I had to look after two 8 year olds on a rainy day but was pleasantly surprised by the amount of fun, technical wiz-bangery and a reasonable plot.
The girls also loved the movie and decided that they wanted to be spys as well.
Since my own child is growing fast I had a perfect excuse to get the DVD 'for the child', looking forward to enjoying Alan Cummings in another over-the-top madman role and hoping my wife would appreciate Antony Banderas in one of his better roles.
Whilst the movie transfer was suitably impressive the DVD smacks of a lost opportunity. There are little or no extras beyond the typical trailers and eye-candy menus.
I suspect a special edition will be along in a couple of months which is why I've downplayed the marks for this release.
Buy it if you are not an 'extras' person as the movie is great, but wait a while for a more rounded release of this potential children's classic (that also appeals to adults) if you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Was it for the kids or me? 22 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Having been nagged and harrased into going to the cinema with my two young children (ages 6 + 8) I was totally captured by this wonderful film... It took me back to my childhood, when films really were focused on full family entertainment! My first words upon leaving... I must buy that when it comes out on video!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Spy Kids DVD 12 Sep 2008
This movie is full of action, adventure and creative characters without being violent and scary. My two boys loved it. It was loads of fun for my husband and I as well as there is plenty of comedy that transends generations. We have seen Spy Kids 2 as well but can't reccomend it as it contains more violence and the characters were pretty scary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spies (in the house of gadgets) 11 Aug 2011
Hugely enjoyable family movie that is bold, bright and brash but also very clever. Scottish actor Alan Cumming stands out as the misunderstood villain and kids' TV entertainer 'Floop', while Antonio Banderas is also good value as the titular kids' secret agent father. The effects are well done, the cast are clearly having a ball, and the cheeky James Bond-esque references are a nice touch. The series went downhill pretty fast after this, with the two sequels doing nothing more than re-treading the original, however ten years on this has stood the test of time and remains a very watchable movie.
