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.

Is it time for director Luc Besson to become invisible too?
June 13, 2007
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.

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.
February 3, 2007
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.

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.

Luc Besson has made a fair share of artfully bad movies. Arthur and the Invisibles -- half-live-action, half-CG kid's adventure -- is (by a hair) more bad-bad, like The Fifth Element, than good-bad, like The Big Blue.
January 17, 2007
With its Day-Glo colors and fast pace, this $80 million live action/animated film may be the first acid trip for kids.
January 16, 2007
Five pounds of poo in a one pound bag.
January 15, 2007
Arthur and the Invisibles has a story so psychedelic that each movie ticket purchased should also include a black light poster and some incense. Kids weaned on the likes of Pixar and Shrek won't know what to make of it.
January 14, 2007
Highmore has been given a free pass from Besson to act his little heart out, and this gifted kid has decided to use the Dakota Fanning 3000 method of predictable, robotic child acting. It's disappointing to witness.
January 13, 2007
To put it bluntly, this film has more plot holes than a Swiss cheese.
