This is the story of a guy who goes too fast and a big guy who is too slow. Foster meets Taupin. All this would be trivial if one of them had a scary scenario, the scenario of their lives and their deaths. Just open the pages and shake.

I really don't know if I can recommed this to people who liked the comics; it's different in tone and characters. Spirou was always a fun adventure comic targeted at children or young teenagers; this movie will pobably not appeal to them - many of the gags are simply not for kids (they're not "adult", it's just things they won't laugh about).
Making Spirou a thief was a strange choice, as was the inclusion of Zorglup as villain - some of the best storylines in the comics had no real villain at all, and the ones including Z were not among the best. Fantasio was a bit lame (but that was often his role in the comics, so ok) and Clavier as Champignac nearly forgettable. (I would have preferred Pierre Richard in that role ...)
The optics are ok, comic-y and simple, and the pace is quick - while I was pretty disappointed with the script (given the nice hoard of stories they could have plundered), the movie never became outright boring. It's just not as good as it should have been.
