ANTBOY 3 (Theatrical Release Germany 2016)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 1.4|5.0 Stars ì

Antboy 3—a Danish children’s superhero film—is slightly better than the two prequels, but has a long way to go for this series to be a 2.0 to 3.0 star movie. This film has a better story line than the last two Antboy films and is more realistic, but the acting and the portrayal need a reboot.

Albert Gæmelkrå/The Flea (Nicolas Bro) is being released from prison, but is immediately picked up by Alicia Dufort (Paprika Steen) who has designs on world control. She wants Albert to do the dirty work of making a formula to make a super human army capable of helping her accomplish world domination. But Albert does not want to be evil anymore, so he teams up with Antboy (Oscar Dietz) and Wilhelm/Sidekick (Samuel Ting Graf), to take Alicia down.

Maybe.  It’s a good study on Danish children films. This director won the 2014 and 2015 Robert Award for Best Children's Film for the two prequels to this film: Antboy and Antboy: Revenge of the Red Fury.
