Cute enough and cool enough at times that I would take all four of my nephews to see it, but minimal cute and cool isn't enough for the long haul.

Strangely, for a feature animation aimed at a younger audience, Arthur and the Invisibles is most entertaining in its live-action sequences.

Unquestionably original, watching Arthur and the Invisibles frequently feels like sitting in on an elaborate video game.

A candy-colored fusion of Dahl, Dr. Seuss and the director's own mischeviousness

Is it time for director Luc Besson to become invisible too?

In a clear-cut case of arrested development, the film that crowns Luc Besson's career is a magical phantasmagoria for the kids, and a derivative mess for their parents.

Uma fábula divertida e inocente que conta com uma eficiente animação digital e traz Besson em um bom momento, o que é algo cada vez mais raro.

In a year when a lot of big-screen animation felt like it came rolling off the video game assembly line, a little originality goes a long way.

Things unfold in rote fashion, with nature-based gadgetry no more clever than those of The Flintstones.
February 5, 2007
Strange and kind of meandering.

The Minimoys are teeny-weeny kind folk with a keen fashion sense and a wicked-cool lair. They're just like what the Borrowers would have been like if they had lived in the field behind the Urban Outfitters production factory.

A lazy fairy-tale pastiche reveling in mite-size cherubs, which cribs from gnomic mythology, elvish lore, Harry Potter, Arthurian legend and can't-pay-the-rent melodrama.

Here is an overproduced, oversugared semi-animated children's fantasy adventure from Luc Besson that made me want to cringe into my plush seat, never to re-emerge.
February 1, 2007
Brightly coloured fantasy adventure with a decent premise, but the animated sections don't really work, despite the efforts of a talented cast.

I'm not sure what creeped me out most in Luc Besson's "Arthur and the Invisibles," the awful animation or Madonna lending her voice to a "child" princess.

Besson's labour of love is a feast for the eyes but leaves the imagination distinctly undernourished.

Looks like European animation is still light years behind the US and Japan. Thank goodness for Highmore and Farrow - if only the whole film had been live-action.
January 27, 2007
The story is just incoherent, and the faster it moves, the more frantic it seems.

Luc Besson's half-baked live-action/animated fantasy looks like it was invented on the hoof: it's erratically plotted, poorly animated, overly derivative and too insufferably cute to interest anyone above undemanding toddler age.
