Verdict onSpy Kids: Armageddon
Spy Kids: Armageddon is an action-adventure following the Tango-Torrez family deal with the latest threat. However, when their code-cracking application gets stolen and put into the world an evil genius starts taking over. Now, the children of the family must step up to use their video game skills to defeat the villain.
In the latest reboot of the Spy Kids franchise, we get a new family in the same situation. The parents get taken by a supervillain and now the children must adapt to the spy life to save them and the world. While this offers up the same sort of wild adventure and wacky gadgets.
The young stars Connor Esterson and Everly Carganilla are great and continue the legacy of the young spies. However, Zachary Levi and Gina Rodriguez lack the spark Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino brought the original. This does end up becoming fun, even if the villain seems to have a good motivation that would improve the world.
Where to Watch: Spy Kids: Armageddon is available on Netflix now.
Final Thoughts – Spy Kids: Armageddon is a fun family adventure.
