What's there in this movie?

This is a fantasy film with usual quarrels between good and the bad or dark,they are fighting for one magical device named Aculos.

The best thing of this movie is cinematography,it is a good visual treat for us,i don't know that place is Ireland or not,the visuals nicely captured it.

The VFX works are much better,like they neatly pictured underworld with full magics,fairies,goblins etc,.

The story starts with the narrative of one giant arrested by some M16 special force,the whole story is told in third person manner by one giant named Mulch Diggums.

The story is very good and adorable for kids because there are many interesting characters like Goblins they have fire proof skin,Fairies they can mesmerize any one by their eyes,Giant Dwarf they can dig a ground fastly with a bad habit of thefting from others,etc.,

Ferdia Shaw, is the hero of this show, played a centre role as Artemis Fowl, a well acted role.

Judi Dench, we know she is a famous actress,in this she played a role as commander of that fairy world.

Josh Gad played intersting funny role as Giant dwarf named Mulch Diggums,a quircky role with some importance to the story.

Collin Farell played a limited role as father of hero Artemis Fowl, Nonso Anozie as a bodyguard of hero's family tried few tricky laugh busters and emotions but not much worked out.

Lara McDonnell played a main role after Hero Ferdia Shaw,i can say she is a heroine in  this film and done a justice to that role.

What's not there in this movie?.

Firstly ,i want to say is, there is no much detailing work in logics,they bend the story as their wish without any logics or perfect reason for that,we know its a fantasy film but it lacks in clear detailing work.

The script is fully weak,it could still have better with logic works to make us believe.

The content is outdated one,we know its for kids  but nowdays who will watch this kind of magic movies without any perfect logic detailing works.

Though the cinematography and visuals are good,there is a flaws in costumes,you will definetely laugh after watched the costumes of that characters mainly fairies.

The villain role is very weak and the voice over of that villain is also poor technical work that sounds more like a robot voice.

The climax is just wasted one,it end quickly without any fights or battles.

Star performance:

It fits to i think Ferdia Shaw and Lara MCdonnell.

Compared to other,they only engaged us by their average acting.

Story line:

The story line of this movie is simple and usual one like there is a battle between good and the bad for one magical device named Aculos,but it is protected by hero's family.

So that villain kidnapped hero's dad and wanted ransom as that Aculos.

After that how hero saved his dad from that villain,this is the story line of this movie.


I still wonder,this is a DisNep's film because this is a outdated cliche ridden script without any clear detailing work to believe.
