Set in an era where superheroes are commonly known and accepted, young William Stronghold, the son of the Commander and Jetstream, tries to find a balance between being a normal teenager and an extraordinary being.
Having recovered from wounds received in a failed rescue operation, Navy SEAL Shane Wolfe is handed a new assignment: Protect the five Plummer kids from enemies of their recently deceased father -- a government scientist whose top-secret experiment remains in the kids' house.
Under-age agents Juni and Carmen Cortez set out on their newest most mind-blowing mission yet: journeying inside the virtual reality world of a 3-D video game designed to outsmart them, as the awe-inspiring graphics and creatures of gaming come to real life. Relying on humor, gadgetry, bravery, family bonds and lightning-quick reflexes, the Spy Kids must battle through tougher and tougher levels of the game, facing challenges that include racing against road warriors and surfing on boiling lava, in order to save the world from a power hungry villain.Written by

When Juni and Grandpa emerge from the game, Grandpa says that the armrests on his wheelchair are covered in rich Corinthian leather. This is a reference to actor Ricardo Montalban's Chrysler Cordoba television commercials in the late 1970s ("The seats are upholstered in rich Corinthian leather"). See more »
After Juni wins the Mega Race, he stands up on his "hubcap," but in the next shot you see Juni flip the hubcap up like a skateboard. Juni never moved, but all of a sudden he's off the hubcap. See more »

Alan Cumming appears as Fegan Floop in an extended prologue to explain how to use the 3-D glasses, and when to take them on and off during the film. This prologue is not included on the 2-D version of the film. See more »
DVD contains a 3D & 2D version (for those without 3D glasses.) See more »
My daughters are aged 9, 14, and 15. They all loved it. I liked it much better than the bogus spy kid 2. That film we had to watch sheep goo on kids heads for a full hour. This film was fast paced and made more sense if you play video games. There are many references to video game levels and how much strength left. I did not care for the one chosen "guy" who was only in it for a few seconds and please drop the computer nerd stuff and the movie did not need nerds.
The 3 D was not great but probably better in digital which only a few theaters have. The terror of the Wax museum 30 years ago had much better 3 D. All in all a fun film. Ricardo Montalban still makes an impact.
