The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec Blu-ray 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…

I'm not such much of an adventure movie kind of girl, but when I got the opportunity to watch The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec I was pretty intrigued. It reminded me of a female version of a mix between Indiana Jones and The Mummy. 

Although the story line could be a bit more interesting and was filled with adventure, the characters were the main reason why I stayed interested in this movie and didn't turn it off. I thought they were hilarious and that the humor was great. The actors did a wonderful job in this, but again, the story line for me just wasn't all there and was a bit all over the place, which could have been the point since this was a story about different adventures. 

I allowed my son to watch it with me and he was very entertained. He loved all the different little mishaps that happened in the story and I was pretty please with that alone. This was definitely a movie that was better than what I expected. 

The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec is now out on both DVD and blu-ray for you to purchase. Feel free to check out the trailer below to see if this might be a movie that may interest you.

Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received  The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc-Sec on Blu-ray at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
