Franquin's second death
24 August 2012 | by (Miami) – See all my reviews

Pictures, images, make up are great but I really don't like the actors or even the digital representation of Marsupilami. The poor thing didn't deserve Alain Chabat or even worse with Jamel Debbouze. This is unfaithful for all Franquin's work to get such a nice little animal being screwed by these actors and producers. I appreciate the second roles like Patrick Timsit, Aïssa Maïga, Lambert Wilson or Liya Kebede. Lambert Wilson imitating Céline Dion is the only one great moment with this "something" of Freddy Mercury. Géraldine Nakache is also truly insupportable in this movie, it seems she needs to get some actor's comedy lessons. As for the humor Chabat or Debbouze, you will remain on their traditional not even french jokes, old and stale light far away from the so funny original dialog of Franquin.
