Arthur and the Invisibles : Movie Review

Arthur and the Invisibles is a pretty but un-involving family film that is neither as conventionally satisfying as a classic Disney flick nor as eccentric as a zany experiment like Jim Henson's Labyrinth, a movie Arthur and the Invisibles echoes both in terms of its visual style and in its choice of David Bowie to play an important part. The movie is inventive in terms of the production design, and it moves so quickly that all the surface activity will probably keep younger audiences entertained. Yet for a holiday movie by idiosyncratic auteur Luc Besson (The Professional, The Fifth Element), Arthur and the Invisibles is surprisingly bland—something I never thought I'd say about a kids' film featuring voices by Harvey Keitel, Robert De Niro, and Snoop Dogg!
