Arthur and the Invisibles
from Film Forum, 01/18/07

Director Luc Besson, better known for stylish and violent films like La Femme Nikita, The Professional, and The Fifth Element, is back, this time with a children's fantasy about a boy who has quite an adventure among microscopic creatures who live in his backyard.

"There's plenty of action, adventure and heroism, then, to keep kids in the theater glued to their seats," says Marcus Yoars (Plugged In). "Their parents, on the other hand, may squirm a bit out of sheer boredom from the clichéd dialogue and remarkably flat voice performances from a horde of celebrities. … Those same parents will also fidget when they encounter the abuses of God's name, a not-really-veiled alcohol/weed gag and a spiritual mishmash as diverse as the film's influences."

Mainstream critics wish this project had remained invisible.
