Still in some theatres and now on video, the spy kids are back and ready for action. They may be a little bit older and a little bit wiser, but their thirst for adventure is still the same. Carmen and Juni Cortez (Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara), children of to ace spies Gregorio and Ingrid Cortez (Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino) and grandchildren to two lengendary agents (Ricardo Montalban and Holland Taylor), are now junior members of the OSS who are out to save the President's daughter, Alexandra (Taylor Momsen, who played Little Cindy Lou-Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas), from danger at an amusement park. However, when rival spy kids Gary and Gerti Giggles (Matthew O'Leary and Emily Osment) arrive on the scene, their presence complicates the rescue. But that's just the tip of the adventure. It is when the four kids wind up on a mysterious island, that they end up battling bizarre creatures as they track down the mysterious, mad scientist Romero (Steve Buscemi) and his dangerous creation, the "Transmooger Device", a device that can be used to control or destroy the world.
Surprisingly, during their adventure, we find that Carmen has developed a crush on Gary and Juni on the President's daughter. Gregorio deals with his own insecurities when it comes to his in-laws and the possibility that Juni may be outgrowing him.
Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams is an excellent film for the entire family and a most worthy successor to the original Spy Kid movie. It is absolutely a must-see.
