The films have always been more kid-oriented than the books and this one won't frighten the school-age ones, although it might raise a few hairs on those younger. Adults might enjoy the knowing glimpses of the real world.

Pratfalls and battles abound, while Demonix's quest for power/revenge echoes that of Aladdin's Jafar (the animated one at least) and it all builds to a fiery finale.

It's all fairly lightweight fun, full of nostalgia for the older fans and plenty of slapstick giggles for the young 'uns.

Unlike other Gallic attempts at this kind of big budget tongue-in-cheek cartoon, at least the directors know how to pull theirs off with slick efficiency and a fair amount of wit, even if the scenario itself feels far too simplistic.
