What’s it about?

Families usually have secrets, but Gregorio and Ingrid have kept a huge one from their children, Carmen and Juni – they used to be international spies!  It’s only when they are kidnapped that the kids find out their parents are not as boring as they thought!

Carmen and Juni must stop their fighting and work together to save their parents from the evil Floop and his ‘Thumb Thumbs’ who have kidnapped them. Floop plans to take over the world with an army of robot spy children who can’t be destroyed by humans. It’s up to Carmen and Juni to save the world from this evil.

What to look out for

Quite a bit of action violence, fighting, chases and explosions in this movie such as:

  • Carmen and Juni are rushed to a safe house after their house is attacked by masked men, who smash windows and fight (kicking and hitting) with their uncle.
  • The masked men then smash through a wall and pursue the children in boats. Their boat smashes through another boat.
  • People with guns enter the safe house and threaten Carmen and Juni.
  • Carmen kicks her brother on the bottom, pushes him and makes him fall off the monkey bars.

There are also several scary scenes which might frighten younger kids such as:

  • Floop’s mutant henchmen and the ‘thumb-thumbs’ are quite scary looking.
  • The robot children are shown close up with glowing eyes
  • One of the female villains gets her hair burnt.

Moral of the Story

The message of the story is the importance of family and working together.
