        they take the animation very seriously with this film and the end result is a pretty entertaining film thats not saying it was good but it had enough cheese factor to keep me watching

        Served well by his inspired lunacy in crafting the deliciously intoxicating sci-fi/fantasy guilty pleasure The Fifth Element, director Luc Besson has smartly honed his obvious gift for designing trippy alien landscapes and their unique backstories on a family franchise. Fantastically inventive, Arthur and the Invisibles certainly demonstrates a richness of these impressive trappings, meaning it has the potential to delight even the brattiest of children…but it ultimately proves to be an over-abundance of riches, a wealth that could potentially make the audience a bit bratty. Based on Besson’s children’s book “Arthur et les Minimoys,” this PG-rated story follows a ten year boy (Highmore) who, in an effort to secure a treasure that will save his grandmother’s (Marrow) house from being demolished, ventures to a world where the inhabitants are a tenth of an inch high. Though not wholly original (think The Secret of Nimh meets TV’s The Littles), Besson’s Minimoy world is buoyed by the writer/director’s laudable infusion of his signature smart-alecky humor. Better yet, the winning characters responsible for voicing these gems are piped by celebrities who-although overly marketable (Madonna, Snoop Dogg, David Bowie)-perfectly fade into the beautifully-animated elfin landscape. This goes doubly so for Highmore, who does awesome turns in both live action and cartoon form. Besson, however, overworked himself. There is simply too much exposition and backstory to effectively accommodate the running time. What should be a breezy thrill-ride turns into a frenzied rush to cram it all in, causing a number of the film’s seminal moments to become anti-climatic. Bottom line: Better off invisible.

        The movie seemed a little bit rushed to me. It's basically a good one for the kids. And the character "Maltazard" reminded me of "Voldemort" from <i>Harry Potter</i>. It's watchable. I like Freddie Highmore's accent. He always seems decent and into this sorta movies. Cute kid.
