Synopsis


The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D
Writer and director Robert Rodriguez returns to the family-friendly adventure of his Spy Kids movies with this three-dimensional action opus. Max (Cayden Boyd) is a ten-year-old boy who doesn't get along with his peers and is constantly bullied at school. But Max has an active imagination, and he has a pair of very special imaginary playmates -- Shark Boy (Taylor Lautner), a human-shark half-breed cared for by a pack of great whites, and Lava Girl (Taylor Dooley), a girl with superpowers who can conjure heat and fire at will. Max may be a creative boy, but what he doesn't know is that Shark Boy and Lava Girl really do exist, and he is recruited to help them as they do battle against Mr. Electricity, a super-villain determined to deprive children of their sleep. Shot and originally released in the 3-D format, The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl also stars David Arquette and Kristin Davis as Max's parents, and George Lopez as a schoolteacher; writer and director Rodriguez wrote the film's story in collaboration with his then seven-year-old son, Racer Rodriguez. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    4 stars for kids, 2-3 for adults

    Most likely, if you were to buy this DVD, you'd buy it for your kid and not yourself... and kids seem to love it. It's different from most other childrens movies, because it tries to take a child's astounding imagination and bring to life its vivid colors and wild nature. This itself makes up for the sub-par to par acting from most of the actors. Kids love what they see and what they feel because it plays with their senses. I would give it 2 stars, because I didn't enjoy it, but I decided to go with 3 considering the target audience is for elementary school aged children (and maybe middle school) .

    My son absolutely loves this movie. For adults its just okay. I just bought it this weekend and noticed its in 3D or 2D. Since we don't have any glasses and DVD don't usually come with 3D glasses, I just expected to watch it in 2D. I was pleasantly surprised that it came with 4 pair of 3 D glasses.
