Movie Info

When Arthur receives a distress call sent from the Minimoys, the invisible people who live in his back garden, he rushes to their aid, ready to fight the evil Emperor Maltazard and save Princess Selenia. But, what he doesn't know is that the plea for help is all part of Maltazard's evil plan to trick Arthur into entering the Minimoys' world, reversing the magic that makes him bigger. Now it's Arthur that stands at just half an inch tall and Maltazard who is larger than life and running riot in Arthur's world. At his new diminutive proportions, has Arthur got what it takes to defeat the evil Emperor?


Critic Reviews for Arthur and the Great Adventure

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

The narration is somewhat muddled, the special effects are almost endearingly naïve, and I cannot see who it's aimed at.

One life-threatening, story-aggregating episode follows another so that, long before the film ends, you wish Arthur and his chums would have a lie down.

While adults may well be fumbling for paracetamol after a few minutes, their offspring may well love its sugar-rush energy. But it could easily have lost a third of its length with little difference.

This is nicely acted and Besson deserves some sort of award for casting Lou Reed and Iggy Pop as its villains, but the script and direction are all over the place and it never really comes together.

Even those generous enough to have rescued 2007's part-animated Arthur and the Invisibles from a DVD bargain bin would likely concede there wasn't much call for a sequel.

December 27, 2010 | Rating: 2/5

The weird structure of this movie - the first in a two-part series - means the narrative unfolds at a strange pace with Maltazard only making his appearance well into the film and the story ending abruptly.
