Parents will undoubtedly approve of this extremely enjoyable kids’ romp that features no excessive violence, foul language or scary scenes. Newcomers and play two regular schoolkids who find themselves turning into international spies when their parents (Antonio Banderas, ) mysteriously disappear without a trace. It is then that the children discover that their parents are actually secret operatives and not the normal boring old mommy and daddy they thought they were. Robert Rodriguez’ latest film is absolutely full of visual imagination and cool gadgets, but his plot does feel like it could use a little help. It’s not a serious criticism, though, as the film is buoyantly fun and the kids perform exceptionally well.
