The final chapter in the trilogy "Spy Kids 3: Game Over" makes its way to DVD next week and Entertainment Contributor Jess Cagle has a preview in The Early Show's Home Theater.
Once again, Antonio Banderas leads the cast of the multi-generation Cortez spy family, but this time the film has a new twist; it is in 3-D. If you buy the DVD, none of the fun will be lost in your living room.
In "Spy Kids 3-D," secret agents Juni and Carmen, played by Daryl Sabara and Alexa Vega, set out on a new mission: to go inside a new virtual reality 3-D video game and catch a power-hungry villain named The Toymaker, before he controls the minds of all the world's children
The Toymaker is played by Sylvester Stallone, who is just one of the many stars who appear in cameo roles. Others include George Clooney, Salma Hayek, and Ricardo Montalban.
To give the movie a virtual feel, much of the film was shot against green screens and was enhanced by computer at a later date. This was very liberating for writer/director Robert Rodriguez, who says, "I call it 'the dream screen,' because it can be anything you want it to be."
The film has almost 2,000 effects, and each one had to be done twice for the 3-D illusion.
Each two-disc set includes a 2-D and 3-D version of the film, and 4 pairs of 3-D glasses. There's also a mega race game, behind-the-scenes documentary, and Rodriguez's 10-minute film school, which teaches you how to make cool home movies.
"Spy-Kids 3-D: Game Over," hits video stores next Tuesday.
