Blog #45: Movie Review: The Adventures of Tintin (Great Snakes!)

I must confess, I know nothing about the comic book this movie is based on, so I can’t compare it.  What I can say is that the animation is absolutely incredible…nothing really special there.  Amazing computer animation like this is becoming almost common now.  Still, it was beautifully done, and I hope there are sequels.

Spoilers ahead.

The story follows investigative reporter Tintin, as he tries to solve the mystery of the Haddock family.  Captain Haddock commanded a vessel called The Unicorn, sunk by pirates with a treasure on board.  Now, years later, the descendent of the pirate who sunk the Unicorn, is trying to find the treasure and get revenge upon the ship’s captain’s descendant.

The often drunk Captain Haddock along with Snowy the dog, make excellent sidekicks to Tintin as he leads their quest to solve the mystery.

All in all, thoroughly enjoyable, and maybe the best kids movie out right now, as Muppets has been out for a while, I haven’t heard anything great about Arthur Christmas, and a third Chipmunks movie?  Really?  For adults though, with The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and War Horse all out now, I don’t think Tintin holds up against them.

Thanks for reading!
