This is a Chinese version of Spy Kids series where children go on a mission to rescue their parents who, it turns out, are superspies or things like that. This film doesn’t have so much special effects as Spy Kids, or at least it doesn’t make them so obvious. It is a fun film with few jokes and mostly easy going, albeit a little slow sometimes.

It also has plenty of excellent martial arts – some are done very seriously, others as a joke.

Overall – a very enjoyable movie if you like this type.
