Magnificent film, essential for lovers of "Comic" and "Tebeos".
10 February 2010 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

The professor "Bacterio" (Janfri Topera) have stolen the most dangerous of his inventions, a device that ends in the hands of a softly, crazy dictator "Calimero el tirano" (Paco Sagárzazu), and ready to use it criminal. The Heads of the organization of counterintelligence T. I. A. : decide recovered, but without its agents "Mortadelo" (Benito Pocino), and "Filemón" (Pepe Viyuela).

The adaptation to the cinema of the popular characters of Spanish comic of F.Ibáñez got a huge box office success, standing as one of the films more films in the history of Spanish cinema, with more than 4,750,000 spectators and almost 22 million euro for the collection. After more than four decades entertaining through the comics, the couple of detectives more famous of this country jumps to the big screen. It was clear from the beginning the complexity of the transfer of a medium to another.

The film was the second job of Javier Fesser as director while maintaining the quality of his previous film, "El Milagro de P. Tinto". Fesser shows us that surrealist and absurd humor applied to the characters created by the great cartoonist and creator F. Ibáñez. It's a movie impossible to understand for those outside the comic and veterans readers of the former "Tebeos" in Spain.

Fesser has known translate the "comics" with all its details (it should be fixed especially in them) and adapt, at the same time, in their way. That is the major asset of this film, along with the tribute to other characters of Ibáñez as the inhabitants of "13 Rue del Percebe" or "Rompetechos".

To highlight the sequences in which "Mortadelo" and "Filemón" trying to capture "El Matraca", mythical offenders "comics" of those magazines of "Super Humor". unforgettable memories of childhood.

Javier Fesser, without ostentatious means, gets mix moments easily recognizable of the veterans of the "T. I. A. ", with others of pure and exclusive comedy that make the indent.. Accidents exaggerated, stock nonsensical, the beating, shaking, falls, occur continuously.., so own of comic get boot laughter through some impressive special effects. "Tirania", the bus of "Servicio Regular", "Bacterio" or "13 Rue del Percebe" places us constantly in the nonsensical world created by the great F. Ibáñez,

The actors faithfully represent their role and not to leave or out of place the spectator at any time. Excellent artistic direction of César Macarrón and great photography of Xabi Giménez.. "La Gran aventura de Mortadelo y Filemón " is undoubtedly a faithful representation of the comics of F. Ibañez in the big screen. Every time i see it again, i still like it and meeting new details in its scenes.
