My sister just got the video and she is completly in love with it. It is a very well formated movie and it is about two kids who go on a mission to find an object and end up on an island with very strange creatures. It's a great movie, you should get it from barnes and noble because they have the best price!

I hated and dispised this terrible sequel to the original SPY KIDS, which was exceptional. But this is no excuse. with, terrible puns, bad special effects, acting that stunk out the wazoo, and the most goody-goody plot ever, I don't think even little children should watch this. It would scare them to death. Like, it would scare them so much they'd turn into the scariest thing imaginable: Carmen cortez with highlights! AAAAAAAH!
