A Monster In Paris

2

The power of flea

Mush Amelie, The Phantom Of The Opera and the giant bug from Mimic together and what do you get? A perplexing ’toon from Shark Tale co-director Bibo Bergeron that will bore the few children it doesn’t completely freak out.

Yes, there is a charm of sorts to this story of a magically mutated flea who becomes a singing sensation beside Vanessa Paradis’ pert cabaret star.

But between the Hugo-style nods to vintage cinema, Sean Lennon’s monstrous crooning and the Eiffel Tower climax, it’s hard to fathom who this 3D combo of horror, musical and twinkly retro nostalgia is aimed at.

      A Monster in Paris....3D. Well, for a start, hardly 3D. It was more like HD. It was like watching something, years ago, that was a 'second feature'. Those my age will remember there was a short rubbishy film on before the main one.....this could have fitted that slot easily. It wasn't a kids film really, not enough in it to keep my grandchildren amused and I was just stunned watching this 'nothing' of movie. Please don't go...it really isn't worth it. I give it one star because it had a pretty song in it and it's visually colourful. Other than that...how on earth did it get into cinema's??
