The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc Sec Review

The year is 1912. This is the story of an intrepid young reporter Adèle Blanc-Sec and her quest for the power of life over death. Her journey would take her to distant lands to face many dangers beneath the sands. She will go to any lengths to achieve her aims, including sailing to Egypt to tackle mummies of all shapes and sizes. Meanwhile in Paris, a 136 million-year old pterodactyl egg on display in the natural history museum has mysteriously hatched, and the creature subjects the city to a reign of terror from the skies. But nothing fazes Adele Blanc-Sec, whose adventures include many more extraordinary surprises…

Directed and produced by world renowned filmmaker Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) and adapted from Eisner Award winner Jacques Tardi’s celebrated French classic comic book series, this movie features a stellar cast of Louise Bourgoin (Anne Fontaine’s The Girl From Monaco), Mathieu Amalric (Quantum of Solace, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), Gilles Lellouche (Love Me If You Dare), Jean-Paul Rouve (La Vie En Rose), Jacky Nercessian (Le Grand Voyage), and Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly).

My Review
My boys LOVE movies. They are movie addicts. They are also pretty picky. They get tired of watching the same old same old kind of stories over and over. We sat down to watch this movie together last weekend. This is such a fun and zany adventure! The characters are so unique and colorful. This movie kept my boys attention from start to finish with no problem. It was very entertaining even for my husband and myself. It has some amazing special effects. There's a pterodactyl, walking mummies, and secret Egyptian tombs. This is a must see adventure for family night!

Both are also available at most major retailers!


  1. If I had time to read lately I would love to read this. Maybe when life slows down for me I can check it out.

  2. This looks fun! I wish my son was older so he could enjoy it!

  3. this sounds interesting, I think my son would like it

  4. Sounds like a movie that my oldest might enjoy but maybe not the young ones. I'll watch it myself as well. :)
