    Spy Kids 3-D: A pain in the eyes.

    Speaking as someone who really enjoyed the first two Spy Kids films, I'm afraid I must say that Roger Ebert's right, "3-D sucks, always has, maybe always will" and watching the 3-D part is like seeing it "through a dirty window". The fact that it's really hard to get the 3-D effect to work when you wear glasses like I do doesn't help either. The eye strain's bad as well with mine practically burning by the end. I'd be waiting for the DVD where I could hopefully watch it normally, but there other problems that keep me being too excited.

    For a movie has which has a theme of counting on your family, there certainly isn't much family to be seen. It feels like the title should have been "Spy Kid: Juni's Big Adventure" since he's the only one of the Cortezes to be seen for what seems to be about 80% of the runtime. Grampa Montalban wanders in and out of proceedings seemly at random and doesn't do much to further the plot. Carmen only enters the film near the end and seems to gotten a whole lot grumpier since we last saw her. The rest of the family's parts are miniscule, basically glorified cameos.

    It seems like a lot of necessary footage was left on the cutting room floor and a lot of unnescessary stuff left in. The reasons for Juni's situation at the beginning and what the Toymaker did in the past are barely even hinted at. Along with the whole "trapped in cyberspace for 30 years" thing which doesn't make a whole of sense, an ending which makes no sense whatsoever, and endless action sequences with little point to them, it makes for a confusing and frustrating film which feels like it takes forever to end.

    I did enjoy Stallone in his first good part in ages and the reunion at the end was nice to see, but in the end I have to give this one a thumbs down.
