scary for young or sensitve kids

the gadgets are cool it's great the kids use their brains to solve problems everything works out in the end; but is the path they take for resolution really necessary? many times the characters treat each other in mean, condescending, put-downish ways there are many dangers that pop up to surprise/scare you. so, young or sensitive kids will get scared

Good, though not as tight as #1

MILD SPOILERS AHEAD Besides a few leaps of logic or coincidence (e.g., does technology work on the island or doesn't it?), the script for #2 is as clever, funny and exciting as the first one. However, we were lulled into a false sense of security about creepy, scary and spooky after the first film proved fine for our very sensitive 7-year-old. Still, he found the Thumb-Thumbs in #1 quite frightening, and this one goes to a higher level of creepy with skeletons that come alive, monsters of various lizardy and spidery stripes, and a bit more fisticuffs. Still, the filmmakers are careful to avoid truly shocking images or editing, so it's still OK for the young kids...just be aware they may want you in the room if they are very young or very sensitive to scariness.

Not as good as the first spy kids, scary for little ones.

Watched this with my 3 1/2 year old after he loved the first Spy Kids movie but it was way to scary for him.
