Here are a few of the objects that come leaping off the screen to entertain the audience in Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over: boxing gloves, robot pincers, computer numerals, gobs of gelatinous goo, a pie, a butterfly, a pair of scissors, and pogo toads. All of this hellzapoppin’ magic takes place inside a videogame, which the hero, Juni Cortez (Daryl Sabara), has entered in order to save the world. It’s ”The Matrix” meets ”TRON” meets ”Jimmy Neutron,” with all the cheery (if not cheesy) evanescence of a Jolly Rancher commercial. I mean that as a compliment.

”Spy Kids 3-D” was written, directed, photographed, and edited by Robert Rodriguez, and if lavishing this much energy on three ”Spy Kids” movies in as many years is Rodriguez’s happily arrested notion of a labor of love, one only wishes that George Lucas had this much fun toiling away on his by now equally gimmicky fantasy contraptions.
