Excerpt: This was a blind buy for me that I wasn't sure if I would like it or not. Mainly because of the way the film is captured and looks. It's too animated to be live and too live looking to be called animated. Because of the Spielberg, Jackson connection and I got a good deal price wise I took the plunge. It was mildly entertaining, I didn't like it as much as I hoped but was afraid I might hate it also so in the end better than average.
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: For fans of the Herge' character Tintin, this movie is a thrill from start to finish. I grew up reading the graphic novels, and so the opening credits and the scenes inside Tintin's house in the beginning of the movie were easily recognizable. The PQ and AG are fantastic. While it's true that the story does lack "punch" as another reviewer stated, the joy of seeing Tintin on the big screen more than makes up for the lighthearted fare.
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.
Excerpt: MOVIE: I can't say enough about this movie. As an adult I found it extremely entertaining and have no problem watching it again and again with the kids. This is now my Son (7) and my Daughter (5) favorite movie. VIDEO: They don't look any better than TINTIN period. 3D: Again they don't come any better than this. Audio: Perfect. EXTRAS: Loads of extras OVERALL: Perfect movie.
I love Spielberg and Jackson. Tintin, I like him. Blu-ray quality gold

Excerpt: When you have a dream team of filmmakers like Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, who are among my all-time favorite directors, come together to make an action/adventure like Tintin, you can’t really resist. But does this animated action extravaganza live up to the hype? I have to say on a purely technical perspective, this is a marvel; a flawless final product.

Along the way, Tintin finds a new friend in the dipsomaniacal Captain Haddock - descendant of the Unicorn's captain, Francis Haddock - and a dangerous enemy in Ivan Sakharine - descendant of the pirate, Red Rackham - both of whom are fated to...
