A brand new trailer for Spy Kids 4D has just hit the web and it looks like another fun family action adventure from Robert Rodriguez despite the latest gimmick. 3D for me has always been a gimmick that compensates for other weak angles in a film and 4D it looks like takes it to new levels. Apparently in Spy Kids 4D you get the 4th dimension of ‘aromasope’ where you can smell things which sounds cool till you find out it involves being handed a card you sniff. Seriously what’s next 5D where you get to feel the movie by punching yourself in the face?
I am a huge fan of Spy Kids and think it is great fun for the whole family and this latest instalment looks no different but if movies get any gimmickier it’s going to make this blogger sick to his stomach. I apologize for going off on a rant but when I think Spy Kids is fun fare for kids and parents and this new concept where we call scratch and sniff 4D is just a far stretch to lame for me.
Checkout the trailer for Spy Kids 4D below which looks like it will be a fun family outing from one of the most talented directors of my time.
On the surface, Marissa Cortez Wilson has it all…married to a famous spy hunting television reporter, a new baby and intelligent twin step kids. But in reality, trying to mother Rebecca and Cecil, who clearly don’t want her around, is her toughest challenge yet. Also, her husband, Wilbur, wouldn’t know a spy if he lived with one which is exactly the case — Marissa’s a retired secret agent.
Marissa’s world is turned upside down when the maniacal Timekeeper threatens to take over the planet and she’s called back into action by the head of OSS, home of the greatest spies and where the now-defunct Spy Kids division was created. With Armageddon quickly approaching, Rebecca and Cecil are thrust into action when they learn their boring stepmom was once a top agent and now the world’s most competitive ten year olds are forced to put their bickering aside and rely on their wits. With a little help from a couple of very familiar Spy Kids, Carmen and Juni Cortez, and some mind-blowing gadgets, they just may be able to save the world and possibly bring their family together while they’re at it.
