Summary: A solid animated film that plays more like National Treasure rather than Indiana Jones. Even if you're unfamiliar with the characters, it's a fun ride with some impressive CGI and inventive sequences. That being said, the movie is missing that magic touch that would elevate it - a bit hollow despite the bravado it displays.
Excerpt: Tintin finds a clue leading him to a great adventure of solving hundred years-old mystery. *** The strength of this film, as we would all agree, were the direction and voice talents of the films, giving credits to the director Steven Spielberg and his voice actors Daniel Craig, Jamie Bell and Andy Serkins. The film was able to actually pt you in an adventure with great transitions and brilliant visualizations of every frame of every scenes.
Summary: I had high hopes for this movie - Spielberg directing another adventure movie. This is no Indiana Jones but has some incredible camera work, great voice acting and an interesting story. But it lacks true character development of the main character and the formula is a bit over used (felt just like the first Pirates movie). Worth a rent.
Excerpt: You should know that there is expected to be two more Tintin films, and that is a good thing. I had the pleasure of reading the many Tintin comic books when I was younger, something that I recommend doing before you see this film. After hearing there was a movie planned, I was thrilled, to say the least. Like a geek, I researched everything and anything that had to do with the film, becoming more excited with every new discovery. Then, I finally got to see the film.
Excerpt: Tintin is a good jolly visual ride that slowly sinks below the sea level. The Adventures of Tintin is an American 3D animation film that reprises the great detective character tintin. The secret of unicorn which is been called outside north America is directed by ace person Steven Spielberg and produced by Peter Jackson.
Excerpt: Being an avid TinTin fan I was quite looking forward to this movie. I'm happy to say that Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson did a marvelous job. They took the effort to know Tintin, the legendary detective and journalist boy character by Belgian artist Hergé and do him honor. Tintin (voiced by Jamie Bell) becomes caught up in a centuries-old treasure hunt when he unwittingly buys a model ship containing a clue to the location of sunken gold in an outdoor market.
Summary: A solid animated/motion capture film that succeeds for many reasons: the story, Spielberg's direction, John Williams' score, and the animation. I was not familiar with Tintin's stories before this, as such I was a little lost in the beginning as the film doesn't do a whole lot to establish who Tintin is. However, it isn't long before you're up to speed and can enjoy this adventure.
Summary: Tintin, a young journalist, and his dog Snowy embark in an adventure with a parchment scroll. He meets Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine and Haddock along the way. Details from the reflections of the suns rays, hair of the skin of Haddock, the water and more were just radiant. The pace in my opinion felt rushed to portray the various gorgeous settings. Also, I'm not a fan of swift conclusions and hints of a sequel.
