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

In this movie, Bill Paxton's character, Dinky Winks says "Game over for you pal. Game over!" This is a reference to his character Private William Hudson's popular quote from the movie "Aliens" (1986) - "Game over man. Game over!" See more »
When the Power Suit is applied to Juni in the Robocon arena, the shadow of the arena host appears out of nowhere next to the suit maker, right before Juni is revealed in the Power Suit. See more »

The theatrical version of the movie contained some animatics made by Troublemaker Animation staff, in particular in the Pogoland scene. This was due to the fact that the animation companies Troublemaker shipped the film off to couldn't finish the animation in time. The animation was finished for the DVD release of the film, which is why some scenes look a bit different. See more »
I enjoyed Spy Kids 1 & 2 but this one was a waste of time. The 3D gimmick was unnecessary and not that effective. I found it very blurry for a lot of the time and took the glasses off.
Daryl Sabara is not improving as he gets older, he gets more irritating. In fact most of the kids were irritating. ( With the exception of Alexa Vega and Courtney Jines). It had some funny lines but not as witty as the first two. The noir style opening would have gone completely over the heads of the main target audience. Sylvester Stallone was good as were the cameo appearances by George Clooney, Elijah Wood, Bill Paxton and Steve Buscemi.
The computer generated sets looked tacky. And the bald wig on one of the Stallone characters looked like a prop from a small town repertory theatre. I was looking forward to this but I was very disappointed. It was made by the bean counters not the creative people.
