This movie was fun and entertaining overall, but it felt like that moment of greatness just never came. I think that the story had great potential and they really could’ve done something really amazing with this movie. But as I watched it and I realized that we were nearing the end of the film, I just didn’t feel completely satisfied. It felt like the place we needed to get to was just never reached and that is a damn shame.
I think the biggest problem with the film was the sequencing and how they told the story. There seemed to be a severe lack of direction. It sucks because the potential was totally there, but despite this failure to deliver a theatrical orgasm, it was an enjoyable film.
Artemis fowl had all the ingredients that one could wish for in a cool Fantasy film. They had Trolls, fairies, magic, drama, a super smart kid and giant dwarves.
My family and I enjoyed the movie and I will still recommend it despite the fact that it felt somewhat incomplete to me. I don’t really know how else to express it, but that big “wow” awesome moment just never came. Things happened way too quickly and in an odd way where it almost felt cheap. I don’t know. I enjoyed the film and I still feel comfortable recommending it. I just feel that it could have been so much more.
