Film Review - Arthur Malediction


In 2006, writer/director Luc Besson took a break from his usual interests in action and adult-minded fare to create one for the kids. “Arthur and the Invisibles” (titled “Arthur and the Minimoys” in Europe and beyond) didn’t make much of an impact during its initial theatrical release, but Besson was determined to do something with this brand name, which was originally a book and became a mild licensing sensation, with games, toys, and even a theme park ride tasked with expanding the fantasy feature, which was eventually joined by two sequels. If there was “Arthur”-mania, I’m sure most people missed it, but such devoted fandom makes up the plot of “Arthur Malediction,” which transforms the tale of tiny heroes and villains into a bloody slasher film that has very little to do with Besson’s original creation.
