Critic Reviews for Les aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec (The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec)

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (1)

It all plays on one note of droll flippancy, which, while pleasingly mordant, is all style and very little substance.

Top Critic

This is what comic-book movies look like when they're not blown up into $200 million monstrosities: friendly and eldritch and kinda cosy even in the middle of outrageous escapades.

Flick Filosopher

The film lacks the more corrosive aspects of [Jacques] Tardi's work, but Besson replaces it with something that gives the story a larger shape and meaning.

The Dissolve

Visually impressive old-school fun, anchored by a charmingly confident performance from Louise Bourgoin.

Aisle Seat

[Blu-ray Review] It's got first-rate, photorealistic CGI effects, fine period art direction and costumes, and features an irresistible lead performance.

A spirited, if chaotic, fantasy adventure that pilfers the best bits from Indiana Jones and gives them a distinctly Gallic flavour.

Audience Reviews for Les aventures extraordinaires d'Adèle Blanc-Sec (The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec)

Not my taste at all, but okay for what it was. Far fetched French fantasy with plucky likeable heroine.

Uninspired, with odd attempts of humor and an unlikable heroine, this adventure wants to be a French Indiana Jones but fails on pretty much every level. Even for a film with fantastic elements, the plot holes are huge and the unlikeliness keeps adding up to a degree where this is merely a comedy. At least the special effects are somewhat decent, but when the entire cast of characters consists of idiots or arrogant pricks, there is little to hang on to. Disappointing.

In 1911, novelist and adventuress Adele Blanc-Sec seeks an ancient Egyptian cure to bring her twin sister out of her coma. Luc Besson's attempt to make an Indiana Jones-style blockbuster infused with French whimsy doesn't always click, but any movie that features both a pterodactyl and a mummy has something going for it.
