Only several movies have successfully made a franchise that is more than 3 movies. Most of the time the 4th is a dud or not matching the success of the previous 3. This is what happened to "Spy Kids 4".

Even as the sexy Jessica Alba and the previous kids in the earlier films are back (Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara), the film suffered from a lot of things. First is lack of interest. The movie is coming off a very long break before this 4th installment gets into theaters. Second was lack of strong storybase. The plot was as predictable as the sun rising and the sun setting. Third is that there were no strong support cast and all the acting chops were bland or forgettable.

The visuals were also not as impressive and the sounds and editing were not really good. For most people who followed the series, it was a big letdown on all aspects. I never thought this would be given a greenlight given the fact that the 3rd movie did not really fare well in the tills. There were some fun moments but the story most of the times were dragging and a bit slow. It's like they focused on more explanation rather than more action. 2.5 out of 5 popcorns!
