Once upon a time, two enemy spies played by Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino fell in love. They started a family and raised two smart, talented children together, and they all had wonderful lives. And then everything changed when a demented children’s show host kidnapped Mom and Dad. Now, it’s up to these kids to save the day by becoming Spy Kids!
Visionary filmmaker Robert Rodriguez brings the unique brand of excitement he previously cultivated in action cinema to a film that is fun for all ages. Equal parts James Bond and Willy Wonka, stars Alexa PenaVega, and Daryl Sabara prove that kids are capable of great things and there is nothing stronger in this world than the power of family.
