Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D
The family-friendly spy franchise is revived once again, this time with a "fourth dimension" of scratch and sniff.
starstarstar
Film Review  August 19, 2011, by Marc Savlov
"...Starring: Jessica Alba, Jeremy Piven, Joel McHale, Rowan Blanchard, Mason Cook, Alexa Vega, Daryl Sabara and Belle Solorzano. Robert Rodriguez's family-friendly tweener spy franchise continues ever onward, even as original spy kids Carmen and Juni Cortez (Vega, Sabara) have grown up and diversified since 2003's Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over..."

Film Review  March 30, 2001, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Starring: Antonio Banderas, Carla Gugino, Alexa Vega, Daryl Sabara, Alan Cumming, Teri Hatcher, Cheech Marin, Danny Trejo, Robert Patrick and Tony Shalhoub. It's going to come as a surprise to many people that Robert Rodriguez -- the filmmaker they associate with blazing action show-stoppers like El Mariachi, Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn, and The Faculty -- has not only gone out and made a PG-rated kids movie but in the process has also raised the bar for what's cool and acceptable in the all-too-placid world of the kids film market..."

Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over
If imagination could be harnessed as an energy source, I suspect local filmmaker Robert Rodriguez could power a small nation all on his own, but after 90 minutes immersed in...

"...Starring: Daryl Sabara, Alexa Vega, Ricardo Montalban, Sylvester Stallone, Mike Judge, Salma Hayek, Robert Vito, Ryan Pinkston, Bobby Edner, Courtney Jines, Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino. If imagination could be harnessed as an energy source, I suspect local filmmaker Robert Rodriguez could power a small nation all on his own, but after 90 minutes immersed in the video-game world of Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over, one wishes he had diversified that imagination some..."

Anyone who's seen "Bedhead" or any of Robert Rodriguez's other early short films made in San Antonio with the acting help of his large squadron of brothers and sisters knows that this director ­ who established his reputation with blazing action show-stoppers ­ is soft touch when it comes to directing kids..."

'Spy Kids 2' Premiere
This one's for the kiddies ...
Screens Story  August 9, 2002, by Kimberley Jones
"...Robert Rodriguez’s second installment in the Spy Kids series is for kids, about kids, and made by kids (okay, adult-sized kids), and Sunday’s premiere of Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams fed on that same sensibility. The packed house was teeming with kiddies (and parents, looking just as giddy)..."

Auditorium Scores: The Sound of 'Spy Kids 2'
Robert Rodriguez took the idea of "buy local" to new extremes by recording the orchestral score at Georgetown High School.
Screens Story  August 9, 2002, by Marc Savlov
"...Robert Rodriguez has always been a man of many hats -- writer/director/editor/artist -- and one who takes pains to draw as much of his filmmaking infrastructure from Austin and surrounding areas as possible. In addition to bringing together local actors, production designers, effects technicians, and crew members of all stripes on Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams, Rodriguez also decided that the film's orchestral score be recorded here as well, something so unusual that Miramax requested an early April run-through -- three whole months before the real deal -- to determine if the idea was even feasible...."

'Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over' World premiere
Hey, hey, it's a big-time world premiere right in our backyard.

Austin and the Paramount Theatre will play host to the world premiere of Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over -- that's right, kids, the world premiere -- on Sunday, July 13..."

'Spy Kids,' Small Planes, and Surly Senators Star in Mueller Sequel
The State Aircraft Pooling Board's long goodbye creates turbulence at Mueller for the city -- and Robert Rodriguez.
News Story  August 1, 2003, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...While the state later abandoned the plans for its grand complex, the Pooling Board retained ownership of its 22 Mueller acres; once Mueller really and finally did close (1999), the board leased out this now-surplus property in an attempt (common among state agencies in this situation) to head off pressures to unload it entirely. Enter Robert Rodriguez, at the time only a moderately famous young filmmaker, who turned the Pooling Board's hangars into the studio space that's now home to the mushrooming Spy Kids franchise..."

Like a Kid Again
For Spy Kids, his first youth-oriented movie, director Robert Rodriguez maintains the spirit of youth -- and El Mariachi

Actually, the whole of Congress Avenue between Sixth and Seventh streets is a mob scene, having been turned into a makeshift carnival for the premiere of Austin filmmaker Robert Rodriguez's newest movie Spy Kids..."

From digital derring-do to super sculpey miniatures, imagination turns into mind-blowing matter in Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams
Screens Story  August 9, 2002, by Marc Savlov
"...And far more than in Rodriguez's previous films, the Spy Kids series -- launched with 2000's Spy Kids and followed this week by Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams -- relies on both digital and non-digital artists working in sync with the director to create the most fully realized world of gadgetry since Sean Connery first bumped into Q and company way back in Dr. No..."

Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London
Frankie Muniz, playing the star agent of the CIA's kiddie corps, saves the day in London.

Film Review  March 12, 2004, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Everything about Agent Cody Banks 2 reeks of hurry up and make this movie before its kid star Frankie Muniz loses his pubescent looks (it’s already borderline). This kiddie spy franchise has nothing on Robert Rodriguez’s Spy Kids troika: Where the Spy Kids movies are playful and clever, Cody Banks 2 is merely creepy and predictable..."

Shoot for the Moon
Actor Danny Trejo has made a film career out of playing criminals. Before that, he made a career out of being one. In town to shoot Robert Rodriguez's Spy Kids, Trejo visited Travis High School to talk to students about the lessons he learned the hard way.
Screens Story  June 9, 2000, by Barry Johnson
"...But on this May afternoon, he is appearing at Travis High School not as Danny Trejo the actor, but as Danny Trejo the reformed criminal -- husband, father of three, drug and alcohol intervention counselor to many, and youth outreach advisor of East Los Angeles' program for young fathers. While in Austin shooting director Robert Rodriguez's new caper Spy Kids (see "Shoot for the Stars," p.62) Trejo has volunteered (yes, volunteered!) his time off to speak to a group of some 50 students at the Eastside high school -- many of whom he recognizes as carbon copies of his former self -- all in an effort to address issues of drug abuse, education, and crime..."

The Legend of Zorro
Whereas the Zorro of yore was a cunning subversive with a libidinous guerrilla panache, this new take with a tyke added is more like Leave It to Zorro.
star
Film Review  October 28, 2005, by Marc Savlov
"...Presto chango: Zorro’s secret identity is revealed, and it ain’t Douglas Fairbanks. (Note: This can also be performed with chilled maraschino cherries and Guy Williams, but the results are far less zesty.) What started out as a promising return to form for that mythic Mexican buckler of swash has, in a single sequel, devolved into The Mummy Returns-lite, or, if you prefer, Spy Kids 2: Island of Lost Box Office..."
