THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN * (Theatrical Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

The Adventures of Tintin
earns the title of ‘great’ movie for the child and adult. The graphics and animation are on par with Robert Zemeckis’ The Polar Express and Christmas Carol. The film is an excellent child/adult share.

Tintin (voice of Jamie Bell) gets his picture painted in the city square, while Snowy, Tintin’s dog, notices a pickpocket, known as Silk (voice by Toby Jones), and tries to see what is going on. When the painter, known as the market artist (voice by Nathan Meister), is finished he gives Tintin a look at the painting. Tintin is satisfied and finds that his dog, Snowy, is not by his side. He takes the painting, pays the artist, starts to look for his dog, calls and calls, and Snowy comes running. Tintin notices a model ship in the reflection of a mirror stand and decides to buy it. A man named Sakharine (voice by Daniel Craig) wants to buy the ship from Tintin. Tintin says the ship is not for sale and takes it home to put on his desk. The adventure is off and running with scenes that include a ransacked apartment; a lost, found, and stolen scroll; mutiny at high sea; dangerous Moroccan ports; a treasure hunt; and a satisfying resolution of the story.
