Artemis Fowl [2020] ★

To say that “Artemis Fowl” is Disney’s worst movie in years would truly be the understatement of the year. Having been delayed several times before it ultimately ended up on Disney +, the movie was doomed to fail right from the start. But I wanted to give it a chance, especially with Kenneth Branagh directing. As it turns out, the film is a complete disaster. There’s a lot of information to digest, which leads me to believe that even kids will find it hard to digest. To make it short, Artemis Fowl (Ferdia Shaw) is a kid genius who has to save his criminal dad (Colin Farrell, wasted) from a fairy turned bad. It’s a lazy premise for sure, which wouldn’t be much of a problem if the story was entertaining. But it isn’t. The script is completely lacking in heart and emotions that it’s hard to give a crap about any of its characters (including Fowl himself). Worst of all, it leaves the door open for a sequel (that will probably never happen). I don’t know what the people behind this misfire would hoping to achieve, but I don’t think anyone will enjoy what it has to offer. It’s easily one of the year’s worst movies.
