Cape Times
Alex Chun quote iconComputer generated mishmash does not convince.
5
The Citizen
Peter Feldman quote iconThis flimsy fairy tale material is without cutting-edge animation, but the young and the young at heart may manage to draw something from it.
10
BBC
Neil Smith quote iconUnfolding at a pace only a hyperactive infant would appreciate with a madcap script that makes the very similar Ant Bully look positively restrained in comparison, Besson's labour of love is a feast for the eyes but leaves the imagination distinctly undernourished.
5
ScreenIt
quote iconExperiencing Arthur and the Invisibles ends up coming off like watching a spastic child putting on his own self-centered show featuring available toys and storyline elements lifted from other films. The kids might enjoy it, but it's likely you may end up wanting to do something else and thus wait out this hyperactive movie until its sugar buzz is mercifully over.
