Agent Cody Banks 2: As Good As the First One

"I saw Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London in theaters. From what I had seen in the previews, I was expecting to be at least as good as, if not better than, the first one. When the movie was over, I was very satisfied. It was just as good as the first one. It would have been much better if they had cut out the scene with the crazy guy who was supplying Cody's gadgets. Other than that, I give it two thumbs up. I can hardly wait until it comes out on DVD!!!"

"Frankie Muniz returns as the teenage CIA super-secret operative in "Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London."THE STORY:CIA teen operative Cody Banks is called back into action to head to England undercover as a musical prodigy to stop a mad scientist and a CIA turncoat from unleashing an all-powerful mind control technology on the world's leaders at the World Summit.THE COOL THINGS:Again, if you're into cool spy movies full of action, cool weapons and gadgets, you'll love the next installment in the Cody Banks series. All the charm from the first movie and similar movies in the genre (a la Spy Kids) are here in this film.Anthony Anderson's role as Bank's "handler" for this film was also a solid cast as he added much more comic relief to this year's film. "Uncle Compton." HA!!!!THE CRITICISMS:The film did lose a bit of a step from last year's original in terms of story pacing though. The scenes with Bank's family were filler at best and seemed to be a bit thrown in. Also, the "romance" between Bank's and his counterpart this year was just waaay below the "cutesy" romance he shared with the Hilary Duff character last year. So if you're into the films for the "Banks Girl" intrigue you'll be disappointed. However, possibilities are left open as this year's British girl character is a counterpart to Cody Banks in more ways than one.BEST SCENES:1. Raid at Camp Woody
2. Spying Down the Chimney
3. Bottled Water Battle
4. The Final Battle scenesTHE VERDICT:Perfectly good and acceptable family fun. It's definitely worth the check-out if you're into these type of films.Final Grade: 4/5Recommended"
Fun family movie and not as good as the first

"I don't expect kid and family movies to be perfect or an tightly woven cinematic experience. Destination London has a few great gags to make everyone of all ages laugh. I felt it went overboard on some of the characters especially Derek, Cody's handler. The writer's could have tone him down a little bit. Anthony Anderson, who pays Derek, did a fine job.
Frankie Muniz plays the role well and doesn't act like a kid who is trying to glide through a second movie like some actors tend to do in a sequel to a successful movie. If there is a third movie, I'm all for it.
The basic plot is the leader of the "camp," which is a training spot for kid spies in disguise goes rogue and heads to London with technology that can control the minds of anyone and make them do anything you want them to do. This is dangerous when you think of controlling the minds of the world leaders. Cody goes undercover as a musician, which was the most logical way for the agency to get someone "inside."
This is more of a 3.5 not a 3 and I just couldn't give it a 4 because I save those for very good movies and 5s for perfection. Treat it as a fun movie and you'll enjoy it."
