Luc Besson returns with an adaptation of a comic book series created by Jacques Tardi. Set in France in the early part of the twentieth century, Adèle Blanc-Sec, played by Louise Bourgoin, is a famous journalist and author who sets off to Egypt to find a mummy who can help her save her sister while also having to take care of a recently hatched pterodactyl that's rampaging around Paris, surely I've got your attention.
While not perfect in the slightest, it is good clean fun (well 12A, there's a bit of nipple...) and enjoyably silly. It's not quite Indiana Jones, which is what it seems to be compared to the most, but then again, what is?
The film also stars Mathieu Almaric, although heavily disguised, as her nemesis and Gilles Lellouche, who can also currently be seen on Irish cinema screens in Little White Lies.
