      Philip French Guardian The narration is somewhat muddled, the special effects are almost endearingly nave, and I cannot see who it's aimed at. Dec 27, 2010 Full Review Sukhdev Sandhu Daily Telegraph (UK) 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. Rated: 2/5 Dec 23, 2010 Full Review Andrew Pulver Guardian 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. Rated: 2/5 Dec 23, 2010 Full Review Matthew Turner ViewLondon 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. Rated: 1/5 Jan 5, 2011 Full Review Mike McCahill Scotsman 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. Rated: 2/5 Dec 27, 2010 Full Review Tim Evans Sky Cinema 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.

      Luis c G why does everyone in the poster look so creepy Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review Audience Member Eu gostaria de dizer que achei meh Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Love all the Arthur movies! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Bom demais, o roteiro é impressionante e as cenas de ação são de arrepiar. Essa obra francesa esta no mesmo nivel de Toy Story e outros filmes de animação. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Not as good as the previous installment, but still a fun plot for all the family. The recasting of Malthazard is a disappointment as he is not as menacing as when he was voiced by David Bowie Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Oh. A gut-punch following the dazzling initial entry in this series. The live-action setup is respectable, but the rest of the plot feels like a painful buildup all on its own, crippled by exposition as plot (show, don’t tell!), a languishing second act, and honestly a lack of an entire climax or third act. This felt like an obligatory penultimate episode of a TV series that finishes with a dovetail that compels you to watch the finale, that forgot to have its own three-act plot.
