This likeable, if unexceptional, gadget-filled Spy Kids clone sees the talented Muniz (17) still perilously straddling the boy-man age gap he traversed in Big Fat Liar. Here, he plays a 15-year-old secret CIA 'teenagent'; like all such agents, above and beyond his considerable skills in skateboarding, karate and other dark arts, Cody must be prepared for all eventualities should assignments inappropriate for older colleagues arise. When his red cat-suited CIA 'minder' (Harmon) instructs him to steathily befriend good-looking scientist's daughter Natalie (Duff), the tongue-tied mini-Bond must master his greatest fear - women. Regrettably, the writing team don't deal satisfactorily with this cross-generational, erm, friction - a factor responsible for the film's uncertain tone. Action-wise, director Zwart pulls out enough stops in action sequences involving jet-propelled skateboards, stunt drives and mountain rescues to keep the ball rolling nicely.
