Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D Movie Review

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Aug 20, 2011
( Rating: 2 Star Rating)

It’s been eight years since the 2003 release of Spy Kids 3D, plenty of time to improve on the franchise. Unfortunately, Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D, which hit theatres on August 19, 2011, fell flat. Kidzworld has the movie review.

Retired Spy

Jessica Alba stars as Marissa - a spy and stepmom to twins Rebecca and Cecil. As Marissa welcomes a new baby into their family, she retires from her spy job. But being a stay-at-home mom is tough with Rebecca always pulling pranks and refusing to bond with Marissa.

Time Flies

When the villain known as the Time Keeper and his assistant Tick Tock begins speeding up time to punish those who waste it, Marissa must return to work. With every passing day, time moves faster and faster. Only Marissa’s sapphire necklace can stop the Time Keeper in his tracks. Unfortunately, Marissa gave that necklace to Rebecca as a peace offering, and she won’t give it back.

Return of the Spy Kids

When the Time Keeper’s men come in search of the necklace, the twins are unwittingly pulled into the dangerous world of spies. They meet the former Spy Kids, Carmen and Juni, and begin their own hunt for the villainous Time Keeper.

The Bottom Line

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D incorporates every cliché involving the word “time” into its dialogue. But the corniness doesn’t end there. The children’s father, who attempts to become a spy hunter, is overdramatic and silly. Perhaps the worst part of all was the scratch-and-sniff cards that were supposed to give the film a fourth dimension. Unfortunately, the cards only had one distinguishable smell instead of eight. The only saving grace for this film in terms of quality acting was the boy, Cecil, and in terms of humor was the dog, Argonaut, voiced by Ricky Gervais.

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D Rating: 2
