Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Fulfills kids' empowerment fantasies and features enough techno-wizardry and cool f/x to satisfy those weaned on videogames."
‑ Lael Loewenstein, Variety
"A fine, relatively non-violent example of pure family entertainment."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"The visual effects don't really hold up 10 years later, but Spy Kids is still a charming, energetic, inventive kids' flick that balances its goofier side with its a sense of dramatic maturity."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"This year's most unlikely-and most successful-exhilarating family-type entertainment."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"Spy Kids is a frivolous but fun adventure movie that will give kids thrills and adults some smiles. Everybody goes home happy."
‑ Jeffrey Overstreet, Looking Closer
"In terms of its family ethos, this makes an interesting comparison with the Addams Family films."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"A good live-action children's movie -- a species so rare that many presumed it extinct."
‑ Andy Seiler, USA Today
"Just the right combination of fantasy and comedy."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"The entire ensemble of old pros play their designated roles well; standing out are Cumming, whose trademark impishness fits this role like a glove; and Danny Trejo, playing a nice guy for a change and pulling it off wonderfully."
‑ Michael Dequina, Film Threat
"Those expecting more than silly fun will surely be disappointed."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"As a piece of almost dadaist filmmaking, Spy Kids is great fun with its continual spirit of invention."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"One of the best kids movies in years."
‑ John Zebrowski, Seattle Times
"The kids play off each other very well and never miss a beat with perfect-timed humor and acting."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"The coolest kid flick in ages."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Pitched somewhere been the swagger of James Bond and the out there ambience of Willy Wonka, Spy Kids is a real treat."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
