Ten-year-old Arthur, in a bid to save his grandfather's house from being demolished, goes looking for some much-fabled hidden treasure in the land of the Minimoys, a tiny people living in harmony with nature.
Upon moving into the run-down Spiderwick Estate with their mother, twin brothers Jared and Simon Grace, along with their sister Mallory, find themselves pulled into an alternate world full of faeries and other creatures.
Maltazard, the Evil M, is now 7 feet tall and evolving among the humans, causing terror wherever he goes. His goal is simple: forming an army of giant henchmen and ruling over the universe. Meanwhile, Arthur is still a Minimoy, and thus in a state where he's unable to fend him off. With the help of Selenia and Betameche, he hatches a plan to regain his usual size: all they must do is infiltrate Arthur's house through the pipeworks, catch an electric train from his bedroom to his grandfather's study and find an elixir that will make him grow back to his human size. Sounds simple enough, if it weren't for Darkos, Maltazard's own son, hot on their tails. Written by
same theme and same characters. same plot and predictable adventures. and the end seems be not very original. short - too much and too complicated. maybe, for kids represents a delight but, in fact, it is only exploitation of a nice idea out of reason. the humor saves part of plot. the animation is nice. but , at a moment, the impression is to see a film about nothing. the great force of Besson imagination is only a sketch. the worlds are in middle of common winter game. the surprises and the original fascination are history. and all who remains can be reduced at costumes and chaos. maybe I mistakes. but the last part has only huge virtue - it is the last.
