The final installment of the Spy Kids 4-D was released on August 19, 2011. Marissa Cortez-Wilson (Jessica Alba), the niece of Carmen Cortez, is married to a famous reporter (Joel McHale) and has retired from the OSS in order to take care of her baby, who is a regular farting machine, and two stepchildren, Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook) who is hearing-disabled. Carmen and Juni have grown up and Juni has left the OSS while Carmen stayed.
Carmen and Juni (who only appears in the last 30 minutes of the film) are the only two characters from the previous films. Jeremy Piven plays the bad guy, The Timekeeper. His aim is to erase time from the world since he feels that people waste time for frivolous activities instead with their families. The CGI in this film is decent and the acting is good. I especially enjoyed the Wilson’s robotic dog which was voiced by Ricky Gervais. Like the other films in this series, there are lessons being taught to younger audiences about family, teamwork, etc. This story was a bit muddled at the beginning due to new characters.
Once I got the relationships worked out, I enjoyed the movie. It had its usual action and humor. Its ironic that I complained about Stallone playing four characters in the third installment while I was surprised by Piven’s portrayal of three characters. I give this 4 stars out of 5.
