Worst Film of 2020: Artemis Fowl (2020) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Finally film to rival Dolittle as 2020’s worst film.  Yup step forward Artemis Foul [sic] – an inept mess that feels like some cheap imported Netflix Canadian soap opera kids TV show than the multimillion dollar blockbuster it was intended to be.  You name it this film messes it up – poor casting, poor acting, poor unfinished effects, poor script and worst of all poor direction from a director who really should know better.  Yes Artemis Fowl is a rare beast – a film that gets almost nothing right.  Well unless it was aiming tone dull.  It may be free (on Disney +)  but even I wanted a refund after watching this hot mess of a movie.

Best Bit: It was mercifully short

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Avoid

If You Liked this Try: The Maze Runner, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson
