SPY KIDS: ARMAGEDDON is a fun, family-friendly film. It was okay for adults if you could suspend all disbelief and go with the premise, plot, and gadgets.ย 

The writers were intent on sharing an excellent theme for not only kids but adults as well. Honesty is always the best policy, no matter if you are a wannabe spy or a King. It was nice to see the franchise back after such a long break. Kudos to Robert Rodriguez. There was an immense amount of CGI gaming action, humor, and sibling teamwork.ย 

The ensemble was believable, especially within the boundaries of the safe house. Now, that was a great place to hang out and learn tricks of the trade. Connor Esterson, Everly Carganilla, Zachary Levi, Gina Rodriguez, and Billy Magnussen made it all look so easy and entertaining, especially for gamers.ย 

SPY KIDS: ARMAGEDDEN is a fresh take on an old storyline. It infused thoughtful moments into what could have been a โ€œgame gone bad.โ€ It is not rocket science but another evening when families can sit together, dream, and talk. Now, that is priceless.

It is available to stream on NETFLIX.ย
