First two are good, this one went into the kiddy zone...Still good for kids under 10
fichindarktower11 January 2011
Watched the movie today,and it's passable. The whole film has been toned down for younger audiences, and that ruined it. It's not a horrible movie, has a couple of chuckles(for older audiences), but unfortunately has a lot of kiddy moments. The 2nd one that basically didn't reveal the plot until the last 20 minutes is a really fun and funny movie.This one finishes that plot, and that's that. Watched the previous ones in french with eng subtitles, but had to watch this one in English, like i knew, i didn't like it(read my review for the first one) mostly cause of the voice acting. Good for kids from 10 and under, older people probably won't like it. Going to watch the french version when it comes out, hope it has different(Better) dialogue like always cause it always has better voice acting... Good for kids, not for older audiences Enjoy P.S: Has a good Star Wars joke near the end ;)

I enjoyed all three movies
Dontaskuwontlikeit19 February 2011
This movie was really good, to be honest the first 2 are the best and this one maybe because it wraps everything up was not as good. HOWEVER the first one is OUTSTANDING and the second one really gets you, so it could be a "by comparison" thing. I know i enjoyed it, my 9 year old enjoyed it and the rest of my family as well.

These movies are DEFINITELY worth watching, and worth owning. After watching part 2 you WILL HAVE to watch part 3.

This is a feel good movie where the good guys win! I enjoy all the actors in this movie especially the grandfather for some reason he really stands out to me.

An improvement on the previous film but doesn't go out as much on a bang as one would want
TheLittleSongbird19 August 2013
Not a terrible film by all means, kind of an entertaining if middling one. The first film Arthur and the Invisibles wasn't that great(to me that is, you'll think differently), rather average with some good-animation, music and most acting and voices- and bad things like the story, pacing and some scripting, but it's still the best of the three. Revenge of Maltazard was rather messy, not really coming to life with poor humour and an ending that felt unfinished. This third and final film Arthur and the War of Two Worlds is an improvement on the second, but for this viewer was still left wanting. The animation is very good though, colourful and well-rendered, in fact the whole film does look lovely. Sure, Maltazard's appearance is rather scary for youngsters but it was one of the film's cleverest touches. The music is rousing and beautiful, with bouncy rhythms and melodies that stick in your head. Most of the acting and voice acting is fine as well. Freddie Highmore is still a very likable hero, while Mia Farrow is a compassionate grandmother figure and Selena Gomez is very charming as well as natural(Madonna in the first film to me was odd casting, and sounded too much like trying to sound young) and interacts very well with Highmore. Lou Reed is so much better and more involved than in Revenge of Maltazard, there he sounded bored, here he sounded creepy if just lacking the suavity that David Bowie brought to the character in the first film. It actually helps that Maltazard is better-utilised here. The grandfather is also funny and endearing, and the duel on the toy train is exciting, that, the exhilarating final half-hour and Maltazard undergoing plastic surgery are the highlights of the film. Jimmy Fallon is a little better, less irritating than before, but he's still not very funny. Neither is the slapstick, which is more juvenile and dumbed-down above anything else. The dialogue does feel bland and underwritten, and while the story has its moments and has its heart in the right place it does lack urgency and sometimes logic. The pacing comes alive in the final half-hour but mostly it's rather staid. The world of the minimoys is an attractive one, but not one that entirely draws you in, while the live-action sequences are still not as impressively written or staged. All in all, far from terrible and has some good things about it but not a sequel or final film of a trilogy that goes out on a bang, though not quite bad enough to be a whimper, more semi-whimper. 5/10 Bethany Cox

the first part is enough
Vincentiu7 January 2014
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.
