I don't think I've ever seen a movie that challenged my eye and my brain to keep up with the action going on the screen. Enjoyable enough for adults, and I'm sure it's a good time for ages 10 and under. Just a bit... much ... for me.
Good movie though. Kinda wish I had seen it i...

Let me start out by saying: I am only marginally familiar with the comic books, so I had no expectations from that side. I am sure there are many nods to the source material here in the film I may not have noticed, but you can tell that there was a lot of detail and love put into...

Not being familiar with the source material, I'm not able to rate this as an adaptation, but, as a stand alone action adventure spectacle, I'm happy to say that this is a very well done and entertaining action packed thrill ride, along the lines of say vintage Indiana Jones and t...

Beautifully made, very very good motion capture (most certainly improved from The Polar Express) and I fell fully and completely into the story and the world. It was fun, exciting and mysterious. I haven't read the originals however so I can't comment on the adaptation, but howev...

Good animated film! The action scenes are brilliantly written and directed, the angles of the camera, the drive of the action scenes, timing of all the jokes(physical or visual) is genius. Because Spielberg is a genius. He is...

A great adventure movie; better than the last Indiana Jones Crystal Skull effort. I like how they've combined three different Tintin books to make a somewhat new story. The characters are a bit bland, and the animation is a weird mix of realism and Tintin book styles. I was surpr...

The motion-capture animation is some of the best I've ever seen. It manages to find the right balance between realism and cartoonish characterization. Andy Serkis serves a very enjoyable performance as Captain Haddock, even the Tintin's dog makes an impression. The film offers...

Tintin was always going to be a tough film to make. It's got a huge global fan-base, which I myself am a member, I grew up reading and loving all of the Tintin books and I have kept every single one in mint condition (next to my Asterix collection). So it was a relief to see that...

It may not be fair, but I was never expecting to like Steven Spielberg's first foray into animation, The Adventures of TinTin. It just looked so busy and I'm still on the fence when it comes to motion-capture technology. So imagine my surprise when I found myself not just enjoyin...

Itā(TM)s clear that his concentration on this fabulous project outweighed his stability with WAR HORSE last December; he directed both films, which hit theaters only four days apart from one another. I wouldnā(TM)t say TINTIN was flawless, but it was highly entertaining. There w...
