The Extraordinary Adventures Of Adele Blanc-Sec

A smart, sassy, assured female adventurer has debatably extraordinary adventures in this graphic novel adaptation directed by Luc Besson. Expertly handling such topics as the paranormal, Egyptian mummies, and pterodactyls in an age when womenfolk didn't handle such matters; The Extraordinary Adventures Of Adele Blanc-Sec is an enjoyable, cute, overlong, PG comic book tale that doesn't quite match Luc Besson's earlier films La Femme Nikita, The Professional, or The Fifth Element. However, Besson's adroit handling of strong female characters means Adele Blanc-Sec could have faired much worse under a lesser director.
