The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec (2010)
Action, Adventure, Comedy
Based on comics by Jacques Tardi.
In order to heal her sister’s near-fatal tennis injury, writer Adèle Blanc-Sec retrieves the mummy of the physician to Pharoah Ramses II for a physicist on death row to bring back to life.
Reasons to Watch
- It’s utterly ridiculous and delightful
- There’s a pterodactyl
- Near-fatal tennis accident
In a just world this would have launched a series of movies. There is however a later animated film based on Tardi’s work, April and the Extraordinary World.
