With the help of his loyal protector Butler, 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, seeks to find his mysteriously disappeared father, and in doing so, uncovers an ancient, underground civilization—the amazingly advanced world of fairies. Deducing that his father’s disappearance is somehow connected to the secretive, reclusive fairy world, cunning Artemis concocts a dangerous plan—so dangerous that he ultimately finds himself in a perilous war of wits with the all-powerful fairies.
Is it Worth a Watch?
I had high hopes for this movie, it has a strong cast, the book was fantastic, and it had the potential to turn into a huge franchise. It’s not the worst movie ever and will likely be appealing to kids but it fails to connect with the older audience which is why I don’t think we’ll see a second.
Nerdy Popcorn Review
The CGI was awful, the magic didn’t resonate, and the story was kind of boring. I could see this movie being ok if the kids run out of content and you need something to put on.
