Review: The Adventures of Tintin

Nov 2011

Steven Spielberg pulls out all the stops in adapting the popular European comic-book character Tintin with eye-popping state-of-the-art 3D motion capture techniques that far improves on movies like "The Polar Express."

Actor Jamie Bell gives voice to the smart red-haired boy reporter Tintin who, with the help of his quick little dog Snowy, conducts private investigations into whatever mysteries come his way. In his European home town Tintin buys a model ship named the Unicorn at an outdoor market only to be followed by a creepy Ivanovich Sakharine (Daniel Craig) who insists on getting his hands on the model ship at all costs.

Thus begins an epic adventure that places Tintin and Snowy onboard a giant cargo ship headed for Morocco at the hand of the ship's unsteady hands of the ship's Capatain Haddock (Andy Serkis).

"The Adventures of Tintin" is full of laughs, and contains some of the best animation ever put up on the big screen. The 3D effects add a little spice to this fun movie about a search for hidden treasure. The brilliant animation on display puts the effects in a film like "Avatar" to shame.
