The action packed franchise is back...with the next generation of Spy Kids. Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) has it all: married to a famous spy-hunting television reporter (Joel McHale), with a new baby and intelligent twin step kids, Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook). When maniacal Timekeeper (Jeremy Piven) disrupts her domestic bliss--threatening to take over the planet--Marissa comes out of retirement as a top secret agent. With Armageddon quickly approaching, Rebecca and Cecil are thrust into action. With a little help from some familiar Spy Kids friends, Carmen (Alexa Vega), Juni (Daryl Sabara), and their faithful dog Argonaut (Ricky Gervais) and some mind-blowing gadgets, they just may be able to save the world.
As happens with many creative people, director Robert Rodriguez became very interested in making things for kids when he started having children of his own. Thanks to his blessed events we were blessed with the delightfully zany entertainment of Spy Kids in 2001, about a brother and sister who join their parents in the family business of being international superspies. Rodriguez spruced up his tall tale with lots of colour, pizzazz, and bold, broad strokes of family-friendly intrigue, plus all the outlandish gadgets that befit an inventive mind and technologically inspired spirit like the one that made him such a dynamic filmmaker to begin with. It didn't hurt that he had Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino on board as the spy parents, along with two wonderfully talented child stars (Alexa Vega and Darryl Sabara) as their pint-size secret agent progeny. After two sequels and 10 years, Rodriguez's reinvigorated resurrection of the franchise relies on a new family with oblique ties to the original (only Vega and Sabara return, as full-grown, full-fledged spies) and does a suitably energetic job of making zippy fun for the fourth-grade crowd. Others are certainly welcome to enjoy the excitement, so long as they have a special affinity for fart, poop, and vomit jokes mixed with bold, pop-art production design, kid-approved techno gadgets, and special effects that play up the slapstick nature of the original Spy Kids ethos. Jessica Alba is the spy mum this time, a job she's kept hidden from her TV journalist husband (Joel McHale) and step-kids Rebecca and Cecil Wilson (Rowan Blanchard and Mason Cook).
The secret doesn't last long, of course, and the two kids, along with her bubbly one-year-old daughter (who supplies most of the poop and vomit), join in the fight against the malevolent Tick Tock and his mysterious boss Time Keeper. These wacky villains can manipulate time and plan on creating some sort of apocalyptic meltdown based on their uniquely nasty ability. That's about the best description one can give; the plot is extremely convoluted, but it's pretty much superfluous anyway. The point of the show is to watch in delighted glee as the kids play with all the cool toys, the good grownups triumph, and the director makes juvenile poetry using slapdash digital effects and nonstop, gentle potty humour to amuse his core audience of enchanted children. Jeremy Piven has fun playing multiple roles and Ricky Gervais practically steals the movie (for the adults, at least) with his riffing banter giving voice to a robot dog in service of the spying Wilson family. Though it's a far cry from the original wit and offhand originality of his first Spy Kids adventure, this fourth installment is ample proof that Rodriguez is keeping up with what kids want in throwaway entertainment and has the technical skill to make the visuals pop off the screen to fill in any gaps of logic or boredom. --Ted Fry

Great kids film lots of laughs silly pranks my son has watched it 3 times already
It you like all the other spy kids films then don't miss this it is great shame juni and his sister had to grow up, but the 2 new spy kids fit in nicely. Hope you enjoy the film as much as us
The single disc features ‘aroma-scope’ a scratch and sniff card to give an extra dimension to the film, but it doesn’t work particularly well and the on screen symbols are irritating and can only be used once [lose a *]. Features are play, scene selection, set up [English sdh on/off, the 5.1 audio is default] and special features [interviews, various how it was done documentaries, deleted scenes and gadgets]. There’s no included game as with the other spy kids films.
Juni Cortez (Daryl Sabara) and sister Carmen (Alexa Vega) make appearances but are very much in secondary roles as they have both grown up. The acting is good, the kids great as usual and the colours bold and with plenty of gadgets and effects, this is bound to entertain but…..The other films appealed to all ages, the writing on this is inferior and relies heavily on what used to be called ‘toilet humour’ relying on ‘puke’ bombs, ‘butt’ bombs from the robot dog and a lot of various ‘smell’ orientated gags, also the early ‘Home Alone’ style pranks come across as malicious rather than funny. Children may like it, but some parents won’t [lose a *]. All in all a disappointment but younger children will probably rate it *****.
If you have kids and 3D and fancy 90 minutes peace and quite then money well spent, otherwise avoid.
Result: There is a 2D Version which plays in all BD players (B)! The info is only on the back of the cover. Menu and extras are 2D, too.
For the movie: great as always. "My Mom can't be a spy - she's not cool enough". Funny :-)
I only had prefered, if the spy parents this time were Alexa & Daryl. That would make more sense.
EDIT: Now I've watched it in 3D (not 4D - I'm consequently ignoring that dumb cards) and I'm major disappointed. I expected a 3D quality like Spy Kids 3D (this movie is a reference for 3D Effects!) but it was very poor 3D. Maximum one single popout. :-(
