From the creative mind of talented filmmaker Luc Besson ("La Femme Nikita," "The Fifth Element"), comes a larger-than-life, family adventure about a boy who, after his grandfather disappears, sets out to save his family home from emerging real estate developers. Arthur learns that he must follow his grandfather's ancient clues to a vast treasure – and unlock the passageway to a spectacular new world filled with mysterious little people, so tiny they are considered invisible, and enlist their help. But once in the magical land, Arthur must join swords with a beautiful princess and a reckless army of defenders to save the land from the evil wizard. It seems like an impossible task, but as he discovers along the way, sometimes the smallest heroes can make the biggest difference. Using a dazzling new combination of live-action and ground-breaking CGI technology, "Arthur & The Invisibles" is the story about the true meaning of courage and the endless power of imagination. The film stars Mia Farrow and Freddie Highmore, featuring the voices of Anthony Anderson, Jason Bateman, David Bowie, Nate Corddry, Rob Corddry, Robert DeNiro, Emilio Estevez, Jimmy Fallon,Harvey Keitel, Madonna, Chazz Palminteri, Erik Per Sullivan and Snoop Dogg. "Arthur and the Invisibles" was written and directed by Luc Besson and is based on the best selling children's book, "Arthur and the Invisibles."

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Luc Besson serves up a hybrid of live actors and computer-generated figures to tell a not-endearing-enough story about a boy who shrinks to microscopic size to find his missing grandfather.
Rotten: Luc Besson has made a fair share of artfully bad movies. Arthur and the Invisibles -- half-live-action, half-CG kid's adventure -- is (by a hair) more bad-bad, like The Fifth Element, than good-bad, like The Big Blue.
Rotten: Besson is a pro when it comes to action movies, but this part live, part animation effort is a mess, highlighted by creepy animation, derivative plot points and a child star who speaks way too fast.
Rotten: Good intentions, a full complement of parts, and proper assembly do not guarantee a successful result.
This is a great movie to watch with the kids. Plenty of action and a good story too.
I am a 66 year old grandfather and all of my grandchildren from age 16 years to 2 years of age loved it. It was a very eye opening experience for me. Just watch it, enjoy, and judge for yourself.
I thought it was going to be weird but the story is so cute!
Even my mother and 20 year old brother enjoyed it.
it's worth a watch! :]
