Picks and Pans Review: Spy Kids 3D: Game Over
Daryl Sabara, Alexa Vega, Ricardo Montalban, Sylvester Stallone
The trouble with movies for kids is that so many of them star kid actors, most of whom mug and give line readings as flat as a soggy paper plate. And so it is with this third installment of Spy Kids, a film of interest only because it attempts to revive the 3-D process. Yes, if you wear those annoying cardboard specs, objects on the screen will fly out at you. Big whoop. The third-dimension stuff happens when Spy Kids 3D: Game Over sticks its two young secret-agent heroes, siblings Carmen (Vega) and Juni Cortez (Sabara), inside a virtual-reality game where they must outwit a master criminal (Stallone—yo, welcome back) out to rule the world. Ever sat next to a child who was playing Game Boy for hours? This is worse. (PG)
BOTTOM LINE: Tired stuff, no matter how many dimensions
