Synopsis: Juni is pulled out of his retirement when his sister, Carmen, gets lost in a virtual game.

Reaction: This seems mainly to be an excuse to show some admittedly cool 3-D scenes. The series seems to be running out of steam with this installment.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • In Italy, for the theatrical release, the film was renamed simply Missione 3D: Game Over (3D Mission: Game Over), without any references in the trailers, or anywhere else, of it being a part of the [Spy Kids] trilogy.
  • Due to filming schedules, many of the actors playing characters in the final scene were never on the set at the same time and were put together digitally.
  • Sylvester Stallone said in an interview that he asked his kids about the previous Spy Kids movies and if he should accept the role in the third installment.
  • George Clooney's scenes were shot in one afternoon in his own living room. He shot the scenes in a suit jacket, shirt, tie and pajama pants.
  • When Juni is entering the next level of the video game, he comes across a place named "Rebel Rockets" the names of director Robert Rodriguez's two sons.
  • When Juni and Grandpa emerge from the game, Grandpa says that the armrests on his wheelchair are covered in rich Corinthian leather. This is a reference to actor Ricardo Montalban's Chrysler Cordoba television commercials in the late '70's ("The seats are upholstered in rich Corinthian leather").
  • Final live-action film appearance of Ricardo Montalban.
