    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

    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
