Arthur and the Invisibles (Arthur and the Minimoys) Reviews

November 3, 2018
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

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.

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.

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.

Whatever its flaws, Arthur and the Invisibles has a handmade, personal feel that finally affords it a cockeyed endearing quality.

It took me a few minutes to get used to the strange look of the Minimoy universe in 'Arthur and the Invisibles,' but I soon became enchanted with it.

It might have been just another humdrum children's film if not for Highmore, who brings the same charm he did in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Finding Neverland to this fun movie.

They look like a cross between anime and Jim Henson puppets. Fortunately, they look nothing like Pixar, PDI, Sony Animation or any of the other talking animal companies.

This is no committee-engineered product designed to boost first-quarter profits; Besson actually wants to be here.

The story isn't terribly original, but Besson gives it a fuel-injected energy...

Ultimately, Besson has made an interesting, if shaky in places, homage to childhood.

It's a pretty good picture, albeit a strange one.

Luc Besson has never been one of my favorite filmmakers, but he seems to have found his metier in children's fantasy, and this semianimated adventure is enjoyable and imaginative despite its formulaic qualities.

Predictable and overly busy, this sci-fi adventure should nonetheless appeal to game-savvy tots, especially those familiar with the source material.

Admirably blends animation and live-action and has a lot on offer for kids, though adults will probably yawn more than once at the predictable twists and turns of the plot.

Luc Besson's Arthur and the Invisibles clears the smog left behind by the year's dubious family entertainments.
