One of the worst films I've ever seen

Truly an awful film. Scraps literally all the charm and myth of the book and misses every mark that would be necessary for even a decent film. The tone is confused, the scene direction is 10/10 for cringe. All those years of Shakespearean study and practice was a waste of time Kennith? Clearly.Packed with all the muddled and addled virtue signalling nonsense that you could ever need. It not only defuses any sincerity about the characters but also manages to destroy any possible tension. We seem to be in a place in film making where it is taboo and forbidden for anyone to represent negative qualities of any kind. Everyone is good and nice to each other except for characters hidden in cloaks or the colonial British man.

Josh Gads narration is not only entirely unnecessary but delivered like a high school students first assessment project.

Holly is wrecked. Root is wrecked. Foaley is nothing. Mulch is intolerable. Butler is wrecked. Juliet is nothing.

0 tension. 0 nuance. 0 technique.

It may be the worst adaption of a book I've ever seen. Definitely at least in the top 5.

Why Kenneth Branagh?????? Why would you do this? Why take a great book one which reads in such a cinematic way and do this to it?????I know the film has to change things to make sure it stays fresh but this is truly awful. What have you done?????Bad story telling, bad effects a script that treats its audience like idiots and no development of some of my favourite characters I have ever read!I have not been this disappointed since The Golden Compass and we all know what happens to that film. Roll on the TV series's in ten years!

Why, why, why, why, why, why?!?!!!????

For a movie that was in post production for nearly four years, I expected more. Honestly a disgrace to the books and a disappointing blip on Kenneth Branagh's resume. As a fan of the books, it is honestly just a terrible blend of the best books and forced plotlines and imaginary mcguffins. At least they didn't have a post credit scene.

More of a messy parody than a real movie.

Artemis Fowl is a complete disaster right from the start. A hectic and frustrating 94 minute movie with no emotions, weak CGI and an incoherent screenplay. It's awkwardly staged, with rusty dialogues that is unexplainable and unacceptable.

A movie made out of a long series of books, Artemis Fowl is bland and incoherent, with paper-thin character development, unimaginative world building, and an awful story telling. Kindly skip this and watch some old Disney classics instead.

My Rating : 0.5/5

I got 9 minutes and 6 seconds in

I've been a fan of Artemis Fowl for years. When I saw the trailer, I was, of course, furious. My brother, another fan, watched the whole film, while I didn't get very far. He said it got worse. I believed him and only wasted 9 minutes and 6 seconds of my life. In less than ten minutes there are numerous errors. For example, Artemis doesn't surf. The therapy scene is from the second book. That Mulch stuff? Nope. From my understanding, it would also be a bad movie on its own, without the shame of being a shoddy adaptation.
