Inspired by SpyKidsMovie.net- Official Website
The name of our business, SpyForKids.com, was inspired by the adventures of Carmen and Juni in the Spy Kids movies. We saw that no-one else was offering a service specifically aimed at finding out what kids wanted most and we filled the gap!
Spy Kids is an American adventure movie series created by Robert Rodriguez. The films follow the adventures of Carmen and Juni Cortez, two children who become involved in their parents’ spy activities and often end up saving the world! These movies are jam-packed with comedy, adventure, and intrigue and perfect for the whole family.
The first film, Spy Kids, was released in 2001 and was nominated for Best Fantasy Film at the 28th Saturn Awards, but sadly lost to The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. The second film subtitled Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams followed in 2002 and Game Over, a year after that. Eight years later, in 2011, the final film in the franchise All the Time in the World, premiered in cinemas. At the showing of this film, moviegoers were able to smell aromas and odors from the movie using special cards that released an odor when scratched. This was called “Aroma-scope”.
In the first film, we were introduced to the main characters, Carmen and Juni. Their parents (Gregorio and Ingrid Cortez) were once rival spies who fell in love and retired to desk jobs at the Organization of Super Spies (OSS). After they are called back into the field, Carmen and Juni have to save their parents when they are kidnapped by an evil children’s television host by the name of Fegan Floop.
The role of Ingrid Cortez is played by Carla Gugino, who you may also remember from movies like Night at the Museum and shows like The Haunting of Hill House. Gregorio Cortez is portrayed by Antonio Banderas who is well known for his action and adventure films.
Alexa Vega plays the role of eldest child Carmen Cortez. Alexa, who had previously only enjoyed small TV and movie roles, became a household name almost overnight following the success of the first film.
Daryl Sabara, who plays the role of Juni, is also known for his work in movies like The Polar Express and Keeping Up with the Steins. He is married to singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor.
The first film holds a rating of 7.2/10 on Rotten Tomatoes with a 93% approval score. The site’s review of the film reads: “A kinetic and fun movie that’s sure to thrill children of all ages”.
Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams
In the sequel film, Carmen and Juni, now junior members the OSS kid spy division, take a mission to a strange island and find mad scientist (played by Steve Buscemi) who had been attempting to genetically-miniaturized animals before an experiment went terribly wrong.
Spy Kids 2 also starred Mike Judge, Holland Taylor, Danny Trejo, Cheech Marin, Taylor Momsen, and Emily Osment.
Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over
In the third film, Juni Cortez (who is now retired and working as a private detective) is called into action when Carmen is kidnapped by a villain known as The Toymaker (played by Sylvester Stallone). The Toymaker imprisons Carmen in a virtual reality environment called “Game Over” and it’s up to Juni to rescue her.
Spy Kids 3 was initially intended to be the last film in the series, but, much to fans delight, it was followed by the fourth film in 2011.
Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World 4D
Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara reprised their roles for the fourth installment the adventure film series, starring alongside Jessica Alba, Jeremy Piven, Joel McHale, Ricky Gervais, and Rowan Blanchard. For the first time in the series, Carla Gugino and Antonio Banderas were not featured.
In this Spy Kids 4, Jessica Alba plays a retired spy who is forced back into the action when a villain called Timekeeper (played by Jeremy Piven) threatens to conquer the world. To help her fight this bad guy are former Spy Kids – Carmen and Juni!
