The Adventures of Tintin (2011)

US/New Zealand 107m, Colour
Director: Steven Spielberg; Voice Cast: Jamie Bell as Tintin, Andy Serkis,  Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost

The Adventures of Tintin is a superbly made 3D film based on the internationally renowned Belgian comic books of the same name. Tintin’s journey begins with a model ship which he buys in the market that contains one of three clues to a sunken treasure which takes him on an extraordinary voyage to Morocco. Accompanied by his very clever dog Snowy, Tintin is assisted by Thomson and Thompson – a wonderfully inept and hilarious pair of bowler hat-wearing detectives who are simultaneously chasing after a master pickpocket. As pure escapism, The Adventures of Tintin is a near faultless combination of action, adventure and comedy with nostalgic production design combined with incredibly sophisticated animation that should capture the imagination of long time fans as well as new audiences (Klaus Ming January 2012).

    Spielberg may not score much points when it comes to his use of motion-capture animation here but the film still benefits from a fun and kinetic direction that brings him back to his old Indiana Jones days. Serkis is a riot the whole time as well. Great review Klaus.

      Good point about Indiana Jones – that’s exactly what I was thinking when i was watching – and failed to mention it in my review. That’s exactly what it felt like.
