Não é de admirar que este filme seja totalmente desconhecido, sem uma história firme e com uma direcção abaixo de cão. Envergonha o clássico que Lucky Luke é...

Was very sceptical about this movie, so thats probably why I found it quite entertaining. Its far from perfect and suffers a bit from pacing problems and some other quirks. Thankfully its a French production and not a Hollywood one; otherwise I am fairly sure it would have been an utter disaster. Also it doesnt take itself seriously and is quite silly all the way, just as you would expect of the comic really. The photography is very nice and I really enjoy French speaking cowboys. So if your up for some light-hearted entertainment, give it a shot!

Bizarrely, this makes the OSS 117 films seem fairly focused. Dujardin is good, and Testud especially fun as Calamity Jane - but there seems too much of the running time is spent on packing in everything from the comics. It is done after the fashion, (though thankfully not the shamanistic style) of Kounen's Blueberry adaptation in that there is too much concern given to arc and epic import. In this case, that is out of place and odd when mixed with a constant barrage of otherwise appropriately silly jokes.

The costumes, lighting and sets are pretty great, however there is not much attention paid to character or plot to draw the interest of those demanding elements other than accurate fan service and genre homage. This made me want to check out the Til Schweiger (Dujardin has a small role) and Terence Hill/Bud Spencer versions for comparison in terms of this balance.

For a comedic western, Lucky Luke is a mixed bag. Sorry James Huth, maybe next time.Although the main plot is on the light side, the subplots and back stories help to fill the 95 minutes of uncomplicated humor and silly characters. The atmosphere completely lacks seriousness and that is one of the positives, especially when everyone in America happens to speak french. That's just the way of Lucky Luke.Visually, this picture is amusing with colorful sets and costumes, but one of the biggest disappointments is the shortfall of laughs in a huge bucket of comedic elements. The action and shootings are eccentric, fast-paced, and it blends right in with the film's style. On the other hand, there is nothing exceptional about it.The acting is as it should be. Jean Dujardin is an acceptable protagonist and most of the supporting cast add character to the film. Michael Youn as Billy the Kid is notable. Ultimately, Lucky Luke is definitely not as funny as it tries to be. Watch it and move on.

Si je n'ai intrinsèquement rien contre les adaptations de bandes-dessinees à l'ecran, force est de reconnaitre qu'il vaudrait parfois mieux y reflechir à deux fois avant de se lancer dans l'aventure: le celèbre cowboy de Morris ne faisant pas partie des heros de BD "realistes", je concède que trouver le ton juste doit être tout sauf evident C'est donc un schema sans prise de risques, assez similaire à celui des trois "Asterix" qui a ete envisage, avec des images luxueuses, des jeux de mots plus ou moins inspires, des clins d'oeils modernes plus ou moins probants et quelques touches cartoonesques. Le problème, c'est que ce "Lucky Luke" est un film fait par, avec et pour Jean Dujardin, qui y transfère paresseusement son personnage de benêt un peu fat dejà employe dans "Brice de Nice" ou "OSS 117". Si vous n'encadrez pas la tronche à Dujardin, c'est donc dejà très mal barre dès le depart. Et même si vous la supportez à peu près, la sauce ne prend pas, c'est malheureux mais c'est comme ça Rarement drôle car trop force, le plus souvent incongru et hors-sujet malgre un casting surprenant (Sylvie Testud en Calamity Jane, Daniel Prevost en Pat Poker et Michael Youn en Billy-the-kid), ce qui se voulait un western parodique à l'image de la bande-dessinee ne devrait reellement amuser que les enfants (mais lisent-ils encore Lucky Luke?). Les thematiques plus adultes (le meurtre des parents, le côte torture du heros) s'insèrent en outre extrêmement mal dans la veine comique pesante du film et, dans l'absolu, cette nouvelle vision des aventures du Poor lonesome cowboy s'avère à peine superieure à celle, de sinistre memoire, avec Terrence Hill en 1991.

Very funny in some moments but the scenario is not perfect and the plot is weak...

A nice try, fun to watch, but a lot of mess...Seems a mix of many issues of the comic, rather than representing a single part of the lonesome cowboy's adventures...I'll stick to the comic, the character and its creators need something a lot lot better...

How to summarize my feelings after having seen this movie? mixed at best... Jean Dujardin is still a great actor and his depiction of Lucky Luke is a true representative of his strengths. The cast is also good and funny. However, the scenario is dubious. The plot is weak, with pieces from various albums being thrown into the mix relatively randomly rather than forming a consistent movie. As a true fan of "Bande Dessinee", it is good to see live version of some of the characters forming the true spine of Lucky Luke but it still feels like some kind of elaborate parody of Lucky Luke rather than a true depiction. Diving into the youth of Luke, with such "tragic" origins feels misplaced too... only the relationship with Belle was a welcome and funny innovation. As a summary: should have been better. Luke, Dujardin, Morris and Goscinny deserve better!

Un essai francais plutot satisfaisant sur la forme mais beaucoup trop long et previsible. JEAN DUJARDIN est excellent, MICHAEL YOUN aussi mais le reste du casting surjoue.

Complètement raté, ennuyeux et mal raconté.

A nice adaptation. Funny. But there should be more actions in it.

Ce Lucky Luke échappe (un peu) à la malédiction des films sur le héros de Morris et Gosciny. Visuellement tout y est, mais le scénario n'est malheureusement à la hauteur.

Quand les francais se plante, il ne rate jamais leur coup.
