Disappointingly childish

SPY KIDS is a film franchise that I never had any experience of before now. I've just watched the first film for the first time some seventeen years after it was released, and I'm afraid I didn't enjoy the experience. This is a silly, dumbed-down children's film featuring over the top performances from the adult actors and a whole variety of shoddy CGI effects work which looks extremely fake when witnessed in the modern day. The child actors are just about passable, but Alan Cumming, Antonio Banderas, and Carla Gugino all seem to struggle with the material and come off looking very silly as a result. The sci-fi storyline is about an army of robot kids but never really goes anywhere, instead churning out the usual cliches over and over again. Genuine actors like Danny Trejo and Robert Patrick are wasted in their parts. I can only hope it gets better from here on in.

Spy Kids Review

Spy Kids is a film written and directed by Robert Rodriguez. I remember sitting in the hall some 12 years ago watching the 3rd part of this franchise. That happened to be my first 3D film. So since I had no clue as to what I was watching that time, I didn't like the film that much. So I fortunately came across the first part which was being aired on TV a few days ago. And I can safely say that I didn't like it.

Plot: Carmen and Juni decide to take matters on their own hands when their parents who happen to be ex spies get kidnapped.

Story and direction: This film had quite a good story in its place. I can atleast give it credit for that. And its starts quite well. I was kind of engrossed in it. I felt like the flashback scene was to be the only over the top thing in this entire film. But then it happens to go on. I can understand when a film is being made for kids and we have to add some illogical sequences. BUt this film has a lot of them. And the VFX. Oh My God. How much green screen and so fake. Films before Spy kids had much better VFX. I know that the budget was very less. I always think when you can't do great VFX, just put that thing away. And the fight scenes are so wire-y. Almost every fight scene looked fake. This film kind of irritated me. Also we have a more over the top villain who stays in some CGI-ed castle. I would say that Danny Elfman was mostly the saving grace for this film because the score was quite enagaging.

Performances: Antonio Banderas was good. But he has done better than this. Carla Gugino was OK. The kids were great in their roles as most of the concentration was them and they did justice to what was given to them. Alan Cumming and Tony Shalhoub were so over the top that they became irritating over a point of time. Same goes to Teri Hatcher. Danny Trejo was a good addition to the film.

I can't actually mention any scene that would be my favorite.

Verdict: This film is for Kids only. If you are mature enough, you can quite avoid this venture.

I am going with a 5.5/10

Every Kid Wanted to Be a Spy Kid After This Film

Sixteen years! That's how long ago this shabby little film by Robert Rodriguez was released. Hard to believe it's been that long. I can easily say it's a lot easier to appreciate this cutesy film if you have children of your own. Not many adults would be caught watching this feature alone....I hope!

Carla Gugino was just 29 years old then. Crazy! Alexa Vega was only 12. Time seems to have flown by since this films release all those years ago. The best part of this movie was getting to see Antonio Banderas and Danny Tejo kick butt together.

How about the actors who became famous after this film; Tony Shaloub (MONK), and Teri Hatcher (DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES). And those who were already pretty famous; Robert Patrick (TERMINATOR 2), George Clooney (O BROTHER WHERE ART THOU), and Cheech Marin (CHEECH & CHONG, NASH BRIDGES).

And speaking of George Clooney, I never knew his scene towards the end was filmed in his own home, while he still wore pajamas! That is incredibly funny. I have to commend Rodriguez with working with such a diverse pool of actors, it turned out to be an okay film. Nothing award worthy, but good for the family market.
