This review is from: Spy Kids 3-D Game Over (Two-Disc Collector's Series) (DVD)
There is no way on earth, or any other planet or dimension for that matter, that this movie could be related to the first two Spy Kids movies. The same actors appear to be present, but I'm guessing that they have been replaced by emotionally-incapable robots with their charm programme removed.
Instead of a plot, almost the entire movie is spent inside an extremely confusing computer game with incomprehensible rules, controlled by the evil Toymaker (Sylvester Stallone, what have you gotten yourself into?) The robot battle scene was very imaginative, and also the bike race and the lava surfing, but having to watch it with 3D glasses spoiled the movie for me. I wear spectacles, and was unable to see the effects clearly while wearing both pairs. Taking them off just made it worse, and the version I bought didn't have a 2D version included.
Just for information, Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino only appear in this movie as cameos, as all the action centers around Juni (Daryl Sabara), Carmen (Alexa Vega) and Grandpa (Ricardo Montalban). Small parts were adequately filled by Elijah Wood and Salma Hayek, and there are guest appearances by everybody who was in the first two movies.
For fans of Alexa Vega, like my four year old son, there are some music videos in the extras that are worth a look.
Not up to the standard of the first two Spy Kids movies.
