    The movie--while it doesn't knock you out--doesn't self-destruct either. Besson may never rise to the level of his best American models here, but it's fun watching him try. show more

    The result isn't an unpalatable pudding but rather a fair-to-middling children's film that is half CG-animation and half live-action. show more
