Critic Reviews for Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams

All Critics (136) | Top Critics (41)

Rodriguez seems to be trying too hard to cram in too much - more gadgets, more characters, more noise, more color. But bigger, brighter and faster isn't necessarily better.

An imaginatively joyous adventure.

December 28, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It is a colourful, high-flying package that melds the gadget-happy sensibilities of its Mission: Impossible-spoofing predecessor with a parade of Hollywood in-jokes sure to amuse parents without confusing kids.

August 20, 2002 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Rodriguez seems to have forgotten that making a spectacle is not the same thing as creating a sense of wonder.

August 20, 2002

I didn't like the first one enough to recommend it. I liked this one even less.

August 12, 2002

Like the first one, this is fresh, funny, exciting, and brilliantly inventive, the best family movie of the summer.

Audience Reviews for Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams


Rodriguez's sequel to the family-fun adventure expands even more and is visually advanced. Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams goes beyond its normal concept and is loosely yet efficient. With a much more expanded cast of supporting actors and its usual charm makes for a slight improvement than its predecessor. 4.5/5

A marginal improvement on its predecessor but its still lacking any charm and like the first it isn't that exciting

as good as the first if not slightly better. the monsters were a fun touch, and the furthering of the OSS storyline with the kids division was fun as well. cheesy, but fun to watch with the kids.
