We gave it a B

The kids with the underage mojo and their sleuth parents (Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino) are back to save the world, or something like that, on the island sanctum of a mad scientist (Steve Buscemi). Nothing, inevitably, matches the surprise charms of Robert Rodriguez’s original, delightful junior-division-Bond adventure. But the inventiveness is still superior, and the addition of grandparents played by Ricardo Montalban and Holland Taylor is inspired.
