Artemis Fowl (2020)



Critic Consensus: A would-be franchise-starter that will anger fans of the source material and leave newcomers befuddled, Artemis Fowl is frustratingly flightless.

Critic Reviews for Artemis Fowl

The mischievous glint in [Judi Dench]'s eyes is Artemis Fowl's only nod to irony and self-awareness.

August 11, 2020 | Rating: 2/5

A sense of indecision hangs over the whole exercise, starting with the screenplay, which has four names attached. Nobody seems to know how funny they're meant to be.

This big-ticket Disney movie is a visual spectacular expertly assembled but it looks unlikely to be remembered as an all-time classic.

Test-marketed to death and very weak... I guess if you have kids, this will kill 90 minutes. It's very hard to sit through, though.

Artemis Fowl isn't an unqualified good egg, but it's perfectly adequate, and the best of the kid-friendly movies redirected to streaming by coronavirus -- a low bar, admittedly.

A glossy and empty exercise in world-building.
