Spy Kids: All The Time In The World

3

A retired spy and her step children try to foil a plot to take over the world...

Robert Rodriguez’s infant-spy series might have an increasingly budget feel, but its sentiments remain sincere.

This is a family movie about family, and while the symbolism can be heavy-handed (a pregnant Jessica Alba’s waters break halfway through an opening fight veering close to ’60s Batman camp), there’s enough heart in the enjoy-the-time-you’re-given message to make some clumsy action forgivable.

Besides, there’s plenty of inventively sticky, colourful scrapes to distract the nippers.
