Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is nicely acted and Besson deserves some sort of award for casting Lou Reed and Iggy Pop as its villains, but the script and direction are all over the place and it never really comes together."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"One life-threatening, story-aggregating episode follows another so that, long before the film ends, you wish Arthur and his chums would have a lie down."
‑ Sukhdev Sandhu, Daily Telegraph
"The narration is somewhat muddled, the special effects are almost endearingly na´ve, and I cannot see who it's aimed at."
‑ Philip French, Guardian
"While adults may well be fumbling for paracetamol after a few minutes, their offspring may well love its sugar-rush energy. But it could easily have lost a third of its length with little difference."
‑ Andrew Pulver, Guardian
"Even those generous enough to have rescued 2007's part-animated Arthur and the Invisibles from a DVD bargain bin would likely concede there wasn't much call for a sequel."
‑ Mike McCahill, Scotsman
"The weird structure of this movie - the first in a two-part series - means the narrative unfolds at a strange pace with Maltazard only making his appearance well into the film and the story ending abruptly."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
