SPY KIDS 3-D:
GAME OVER

I really didnít wanna see Spy Kids 3D: Game Over theatrically, but my Mom and sister wanted to see it, and I didnít know if the 3-D aspect of it would make it look ugly on DVD, so there you go.
I liked the original movies to a certain extent, SPY KIDS and SPY KIDS 2: THE ISLAND OF LOST DREAMS, but I think the franchise has run itís course.
Still, number three does have a certain charm. I love the fact that writer-director Robert Rodriguez keeps sticking to all of his original characters and actors.

I must say though, that the 3-D aspect is not at all necessary, and I wasnít crazy about wearing the little glasses for so much of the movie. Still, I can appreciate the film makers wanting to grab itís target audience with a gimmick, especially one that they may not be all that familiar with. So I hope the flick does well.
Prolly the best thing about Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over was the casting of Sylvester Stallone as the filmís villain. He does a great job and is genuinely funny, surprisingly so.
I also appreciated the interaction between Ricardo Montolban and Daryl Sabara. Nice job.

So the movieís basically a silly little romp, but itís kinda fun.
Check it out.
