Movie Info

When Arthur receives a distress call sent from the Minimoys, the invisible people who live in his back garden, he rushes to their aid, ready to fight the evil Emperor Maltazard and save Princess Selenia. But, what he doesn't know is that the plea for help is all part of Maltazard's evil plan to trick Arthur into entering the Minimoys' world, reversing the magic that makes him bigger. Now it's Arthur that stands at just half an inch tall and Maltazard who is larger than life and running riot in Arthur's world. At his new diminutive proportions, has Arthur got what it takes to defeat the evil Emperor?

  • The narration is somewhat muddled, the special effects are almost endearingly naïve, and I cannot see who it's aimed at.

  • One life-threatening, story-aggregating episode follows another so that, long before the film ends, you wish Arthur and his chums would have a lie down.

  • While adults may well be fumbling for paracetamol after a few minutes, their offspring may well love its sugar-rush energy. But it could easily have lost a third of its length with little difference.

  • This is nicely acted and Besson deserves some sort of award for casting Lou Reed and Iggy Pop as its villains, but the script and direction are all over the place and it never really comes together.

  • Even those generous enough to have rescued 2007's part-animated Arthur and the Invisibles from a DVD bargain bin would likely concede there wasn't much call for a sequel.

  • The weird structure of this movie - the first in a two-part series - means the narrative unfolds at a strange pace with Maltazard only making his appearance well into the film and the story ending abruptly.

Audience Reviews for Arthur and the Great Adventure

    I am not sure what is the age of the viewers this French/American film was made for... it seemed very suitable for paedophiles... If I was the producer and the director Luc Besson I'd be very embarrassed to mention that I was involved in this animated feature film. I haven't seen the first movie, Arthur and the Invisibles, and after watching this one I am not interested in the first one altogether. To me, this movie was just a part of the European propaganda to indoctrinate the youth which will be in few years ready to start paying the carbon tax introduced for "saving the planet" (read: fat back sides of the politicians and their expensive escorts). Don't waste a breath on this one!

    I hate the ending, it just like that... Maltazard ending. not Arthur ending... And despite that the Good purpose is to save animal including bees, ant, and other insect and plants. But Arthur was shown here as a kid that like to lie everytime, deceive her mother and father. Maybe parents not really like this moves... on this series.

    This movie was 2hrs long with nothing inside. You'll feel like it's empty. What did they tried to make out of it? Total waste of time (except the part where Arthur had to go back in other way, that looked pretty painful).

    Well, even the same team is on the road for the sequel, but what I saw in this sequel of "Arthur & The Minimoys" was a truly disaster... I don't even know what Luc Besson want, to destroy the first movie which is great I thought, by making the sequel... Especially because I hear that this movie will become a trilogy... I know that he add another amazing cast for lend their voice like Will-I-Am and Fergie from The Black Eyed Peas, but the story of this movie is a truly disaster... Even Freddie Highmore nor senio actress Mia Farrow can't save this movie... What a disappointment...
