Spy Kids 2 sees super sleuths Juni and Carmen Cortez newly promoted in the Spy Kids ranks.

Relying on their wits and each other, Juni and Carmen’s escapades lead them into trouble.
The latest mission takes them dynamic duo to The Island of Lost Dreams, a mysterious island populated by bizarre creatures. Not only faced with the mad genetic scientist Romero (Buscemi), Juni and Carmen learn that their fantastic armoury of gadgets and gizmos are powerless on the island and soon adapt to guerrilla tactics. However, new rivals and fellow Spy Kids Gary (Matt O’Leary – Domestic Disturbance) and Gerti (Emily Osment – The Secret Life of Girls) are determined to steal their limelight and pip the Cortezes to the post.
A visceral explosion of special effects and colours, Spy Kids 2 is the perfect DVD for all the family. Fun features for both big and little kids include the interactive game ‘Transmooker Trouble’ and featurettes such as ‘Essential Gear’ – an insight into the gadgets of the film and ‘A Day in the Life of a Spy Kid’. Also containing a dense commentary from larger-than-life director Robert Rodriquez, this is a must own addition to any DVD collection.
Get set for a summer holiday of action with hilarious comedy, mind-boggling special effects and a host of gadgets and gizmos when Spy Kids 2 comes out to own on DVD and video from 30 June 2003.
Carmen and Juni Cortez are called upon for their first bona fide mission as Level 2 OSS Agents and are assigned to retrieve a device called the Transmooker – a dangerous weapon capable of disabling the power of the entire planet. Equipped with the latest high-tech gadgets, our fearless duo journey to the Island of Lost Dreams to face the wild genetic scientist Romero (Buscemi) whose experiments have mutated the islands creatures.
The kids have their work cut out when they discover that none of their high-tech weapons work on the island and they must battle the strange creatures and save the world from the dreaded Transmooker. Hot on their heels are competing spy kids, Gary and Gerti Giggles, who also have their eyes on the device. Wary of their childrens’ dangerous mission, adult spies Ingrid and Gregorio Cortez follow them to the Island of Lost Dreams closely followed by ageing but feisty grandparents (Ricard Montalban and Holland Taylor).
In the face of a mission so big, the whole family is recruited to help; can Carmen and Juni retain their hero status and save the day?
