una gran pelicula no mejor que tale of the migthy knigths pero es fantastica

esta pelicula es muy genial se puede ver en familia y tiene dos episodios adicionales muy bonitos siento que es para mayores de 7 años ya que las referencias son a una pelicula de james bros de mucha accion y pablo realemte hace una ran trabajo el humor blanco es genial sinceramente me sorprende que seea de nick jr. y no de nicktoons ya que otras peliculas de nick jr como dora y el baile de rescate diehgo salva al dinosaurio dora y la aventura de cuentos de hadas, etc son peliuclas muy pescolares casi para bebes y esta no es para nada prescolar en mi opinion clar que no presenta un humor adulto pero siento que deberia transmitirse en nicktoons y no en nick jr ademas de que los shows de nick jr son muy estupidos las peliculas e backyardigans hacen na gran trabajo son y epicas y las recomiendo de verdad esta rata de pablo el super espia que tiene que recoger unos recipientes secretos y tiene una aventura super buena apta par toda la familia tiene un poco de todos los gustos y hace que sea una pelicula genial asi como la serie en general de verdad veanla

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (10 ):

This is a gentle but crisply paced spy drama. While Pink does a commendable job of establishing the evil nature of her character by revealing that she interrupts people and doesn't like pie, viewers know that it's just a matter of time before she comes around. Fans of the TV series needn't worry that Tyrone and Uniqua have gone to the dark side; Tyrone needs to be reminded to shake his fist in frustration each time Secret grabs a container and any possible tension is averted.

The animation is top-notch, with the neon colored characters a nice counterpoint to the detailed and realistically textured background sets. Cyndi Lauper lends her voice to the soundtrack. For kids aged 3-5, this is a fun story modeling good manners, dance moves, and the inevitable triumph of good over evil. The two bonus episodes are "A Giant Problem" and "The Secret of Snow."
