Adventure - Cool gadgets, lots of action and visually it's outstanding. For kids and young teens it's a sure bet they will love it. However, older teens and adults will probably find the story to be too silly and juvenile.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "This time around, the antics are a tad more frantic, and the gizmos work overtime... On the other hand, the inventiveness is still superior and the network of fiends and family is extended.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Good "The kids are back, and they're just as lively and fun in this installment as they were the first time around. Spy Kids 2 is a worthy successor to the original, and an enjoyable romp in its own right.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "With "Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams," the Spy Kids franchise establishes itself as a durable part of the movie landscape: a James Bond series for kids. One imagines "Spy Kids 9," with Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara promoted to the roles of the parents, Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino as the grandparents, and kids yet unborn in the title roles.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Average "One of the most charming things about the film is that it delivers its family values message with considerable affection and utter conviction, even though the older Cortezes are reduced to minor supporting players — inventive Uncle Izzy's (Danny Trejo) role is little more than a cameo. But there's way too much CGI gadgetry, some inventive, much simply flashy in the worst kind of video-game way. The kids are nearly lost in the glitz.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

As expected, kids loved it. Most of the seven teens rated it high. I suspect they were probably young teens. The young adult and adult opinions were all pretty equal. Nearly all of them enjoyed "Spy Kids 2," but with many of the opinions being "Good" and lower, it's obviously not a great kids movie for adults like "Shrek" or "Toy Story."

This is still a movie that I can recommend. It's a good family movie. Sure, some of you adults won't think it was great, but it certainly won't put you to sleep and it does have a few entertaining moments for adults.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
For its target audience, kids, it will be a major hit! I have no doubt every kid will love it. It has lots of action and activity with some great special effects.

Unfortunately, it's not especially entertaining for adults, which isn't bad just unfortunate. It's just nice when a kids movie is also entertaining for adults. This one certainly isn't bad, it's just a little too juvenile for adults and older teens. Still, I would recommend it as good family movie because there are so few decent movies the whole family can go to see.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
When the world is in trouble they call in their top secret agents. Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Juni (Daryl Sabara) Cortez are back for another adventure. Their newest mission takes them to a mysterious island where they meet a wildly inventive genetic scientist (Steve Buscemi) and his imaginative creatures, while fighting the forces of rival SPY kids, Gary (Matt O'Leary) and Gerti (Emily Osment) Giggles, as they head right into a trap that will test each and every Cortez spy, from super spies Mom and Dad to their SPY grandparents (Ricardo Montalban, Holland Taylor). Carmen and Juni go on a mission so big, they'll have to bring the whole family.
