The Adventures Of Sharkboy And Lavagirl In 3-D Review


Good
It seems entirely possible that Robert Rodriguez made Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over in 3-D in order to conform to the '80s law of third installments (kids, ask an eyewitness about the third Jaws or Friday the 13th movies). It seems equally plausible that the director's Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D is in 3-D because it makes an excellent title sound even better. I speculate out of love for Rodriguez's brand of moviemaking as cottage industry, and because the 3-D effects are more retro than special, more cute gimmick than image enhancer. In fact, during The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl they started to make me drowsy.

Or maybe that was the story, which feels improvised and inconsequential. The movie is about Max (Cayden Boyd), a fourth-grader with an active imagination, troubles at home, and few friends at school. He is rescued from his misery by two of his own creations, Sharkboy (Taylor Lautner) and Lavagirl (Taylor Dooley), who spirit him away to the planet Drool. Drool is under attack from fantastical bad guys who bear a striking resemblance to Max's teacher and bully.

The Adventures Of SharkBoy & LavaGirl In 3-D Review


OK
As if to make up for the ultraviolence in his "SinCity," director Robert Rodriguez bringsout his second film of the year this week -- the family-friendly adventure"The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl."

In this film, a young boy named Max (Cayden Boyd) dreamsthat he meets two child superheroes, SharkBoy (Taylor Lautner) and LavaGirl(Taylor Dooley). Max is unable to convince anyone that they actually existuntil they show up in his classroom and whisk him away to Planet Drool,where only he can help save the day.

As in his "SpyKids 3," Rodriguez presents a good portionof the action in 3-D, and audience members are asked to don or remove theirglasses at crucial points. Rodriguez is nothing if not enthusiastic, andhe packs his film with dozens of jokes and ideas, no matter how silly.But he's a long way off from the energy of the original "SpyKids," and the difference lies betweenthe definitions of "childlike" and "childish."

His own children are old enough now to help him with hisstorytelling duties, and Rodriguez is so charmed by parenthood that hecan no longer edit out the stuff that doesn't work. Great chunks of "SharkBoyand LavaGirl" simply embarrass with their infantile thought patternsand their anxious attempt to appeal to young viewers. Moreover, the filmmakerhas developed a slightly disturbing penchant for close-ups on LavaGirland her dazzling Denise Richards-like smile.
