Arthur did as a boy what only grandpa, a fellow nature buff, did as an adult: pass, as white man, the Bogo tribe's tests of harmony with the natural worlds of trees, minerals and animals. To answer a mysterious call fro help from the Mimimoy people, he enters their world miniaturized. By the time he works out with friends it was a trick, the mastermind has already escaped, ready to strike in our world. Written by KGF Vissers

Movie was not suitable for my daughters
18 January 2010 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

I took my daughters to the cinema and was very disappointed with this disgusting movie. I t was a waste of time and money. I don't advise anyone to waste his time and money to go and watch such movie. There is no story for the movie the mix of the animation and real people was not good. the characters they used in the animation are very ugly. Very cheap movie. All events are not connected, my kids fear the movie and did not enjoy it. For future work please consider that who are watching the movie are humans, the production is very cheap I bit the cost of production was too low. This movie is not suitable nor for kids neither for adults.
