Spy Kids 2 Review

Spy Kids 2 is a film written and directed by Robert Rodriguez. AS I had seen the first Spy Kids film, I decided to give this film also a go, but with much lesser expectations. And what we get is the same mismash of the first film.

Plot: It is upto OSS agents Carmen and Juni to recover a Transmooker device from a mysterious island.

Story and direction: As usual, there is nothing much interesting to the story. BUt the way Robert decides to go with the story is very conventional. He follows the same old route that he followed with the first film. Even we have some new characters that are added to this venture, but none of them seem very likable. That may be because Robert Rodriguesz liked to do everything in the film but doesn't excel in any part. Although the visual effects are a wee bit better than the first film, but still it is a pain to the eyes considering the film's that came before this one employed much better VFX. And the implausibilties are so much that you cringe in almost every scene at the stupidity that happens. I am not saying that I have a problem with stupidity. But there is always a way to make it presentable, where this film fails the most.

Performances: Alexa Vega and Carla Juni were again adorable as the Spy Kids agents. Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino were likable. Why were Alan Cummin and Tony Shalhoub asked to return for this, is still not understandable to me. Danny Trejo is will be always rememberede as Machete. The other rival kids were kind of irritating. I don't know whether it was their acting or characterization, I hated them.

Verdict: Stepping down from the first film, Spy Kidfs 2 was not a great watch for me. I kept seeing my watch as to when this film will be over. Again this film will bring some smiles on the kids' faces, but nothing for teenagers or adults.

I am going with a 4/10.

Juvenile nonsense

ISLAND OF LOST DREAMS is the second of the SPY KIDS franchise from director Robert Rodriguez and every bit as silly and juvenile as the first, unfortunately. The kids from the first film return to contend with a new bad guy and his army of sinister science projects. There are weird creations, monsters, and even a couple of doppleganger clones at one point. Sadly, it's a film that suffers from a lowest-common-denominator script and plenty of absolutely appalling CGI effects, particularly the WILLOW-inspired sea monsters, which I'm astonished to see in a mainstream film (apparently because it's a kid's film, it's okay to include them). The only interesting part of this, for me, is the chance to see cameoing adult actors, including the welcome likes of Bill Paxton, Danny Trejo, and Steve Buscemi, but their presence isn't enough to make this anything other than juvenile nonsense.

Not too good besides the nostalgia

Like I said the only thing stopping me from giving this a 4/10 is nostalgia. It really brings back memories watching this. CGI is pretty bad, but what do you expect from a kids movie. I really did like the creatures in this movie. Kids and Adults will like this movie. It's pretty entertaining just don't expect anything mind-blowing. Considering this is a sequel it does make sense that this wouldn't be as fresh as the first. The acting is pretty cringe-worthy at points; mostly with the scientist character. He played it a little too over the top. But kids will think he is hilarious while adults will laugh at how bad it is.
