In today’s lecture titled “When Disney Films Go Wrong,” I present “Artemis Fowl,” a wholly unredeemable mess of a movie from director Kenneth Branagh. The studio dumped this trash heap on Disney+, and even the home streaming platform is far more than it deserves. There’s very little magic in this CGI-heavy family film, and it’s more of a yawn-fest than the engrossing adventure it obviously aspired to be.
Based on the first two books in author Eoin Colfer’s wildly popular children’s fantasy series, “Artemis Fowl” tells the ho-hum story of adolescent criminal genius Artemis (Ferdia Shaw), an annoying kid who captures vicious fairy Holly Short (Lara McDonnell) at her underground world in an attempt to harness the magical powers needed to rescue his dad (Colin Farrell). There isn’t much more to the plot than this, and the whole thing reeks of a grossly subpar “Harry Potter” rip-off. Even the story’s narrator, the oversized dwarf Mulch Diggums (Josh Gad), is a dead ringer for Hagrid.
The cast ranges from irritating and distracting (Shaw, McDonnell) to really talented actors who probably should’ve known better than to accept their roles for a Disney payday (Farrell, Gad, Judi Dench).
The movie gets progressively worse as it sputters along and, just when you think the film can’t sink any lower, a fabulously “wtf?!?” scene arrives where Diggums unhinges his jaw, scoops up dirt at a rapid pace, and poops it right on out of his rear end.
To be honest, I’d rather have watched that scene on a loop for the full 94 minutes rather than this substandard junk.
There’s really not anything good about ‘Artemis Fowl’, except for the decent score perhaps. The premise is terrible and poorly told, not helped by the fact it takes itself pretty seriously for much of the 95 minute run time. The pacing is off, while the effects are meh.
The cast don’t work any wonders. Nothing personal against Ferdia Shaw but he isn’t good in the lead role, I thought his age-mate Lara McDonnell did alright as Holly though. I like Josh Gad but his role here is bad, his narration is particularly ropey. Judi Dench’s Julius is irritating too, while Colin Farrell and Nonso Anozie are underused.
A big misfire, unfortunately. Not the worst film I’ve ever seen though. They openly set up a sequel at the end, which I’d imagine won’t be happening given the reaction to this – a situation like 2007’s ‘The Golden Compass’ potentially.
I didn’t read the books, my wife did, we were both lost
This movie succeeds in being bad for those who haven’t read the books, like me, and especially for those who have, like my wife. We crawled to the finish line of this movie, which we couldn’t wait to be over. I was so lost. And why is everyone talking like their throat itches? And what does Artemis Fowl ACTUALLY do?!
Did they read the books?
This movie is the definiton of money grab. They took the name Artimis Fowl and the base idea from the books and threw everything else out. This movie is garbage.
