Spy Kids (2008) movie review

Come Fly With Me

Two boys learn about life, friendship, brotherhood and more in the belly of an old airplane.

Flyboys (also released as Spy Kids) is a traditional tale of junior male bonding over disobedient and dangerous behaviour. Skipping school was never so much fun as when these two kids become involved in a double-cross.

For these two boys, their lives depend on how men define their responsibilities under the credo "honour among thieves". What will their fate be?

Movie Poster, Flyboys

For the first time in their lives, they're trying to get grounded.

Don't be misled by the retitling, this movie is not as much fun as the Spy Kids series. In Australia, it earns an "M" rating.
