ZEDD'S OPINION:

Big fan of the whole Spy Kids trilogy, it's James Bond Jr. meets Power Rangers. The Thumbthumbs are so worth of a Japanese Sentai show it ain't even funny. The FoOligies are like the monsters. It's just so cool, the action, the humor. There were some minor pacing issues, but ever so slight. 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd yet again, the SPY KIDS movies are just great and this first one is a great way to start the series. It's fun for the whole family and should be a must for all parents with boys. 9 STARS as well.
