DVD: The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec, Optimum (For rental & retail)
Luc Besson returns with a comic-book caper about an adventuress – Indiana Jones in a bonnet – who chases around Belle Epoque Paris after a pterodactyl and an Egyptian mummy.
But with precious little plot and no villain, this shaggy dinosaur story is less fun than it might sound. Besides, children may be perplexed by Adele's macabre motivation, which involves her sister having a hatpin jammed through her skull.
