Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There are so many variables moving so fast that it's a wonder Spielberg didn't have someone onboard from Princeton's department of Higher Math to help keep track. But his crack team here is enough."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"A frenetic bonbon with an empty center, and a movie made without any perceivable audience outside of filmmakers besotted by their own innovative processes."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"Visually triumphant and chock-full of classic Spielberg-isms -- both good and bad."
‑ Justin Craig,
"By no means a masterpiece, the full-length computer-generated animated film nevertheless has freed Spielberg from the shackles of conventional filmmaking and physical limitations."
‑ Kirk Baird, Toledo Blade
"It isn't that The Adventures of Tintin is bad, but outside of the visuals, this film breaks no new ground for Spielberg."
‑ Will Chadwick, We Got This Covered
"It's delirious stuff, often laugh-out-loud funny."
‑ Tom Charity,
"The Adventures of Tintin comes at you in a whoosh, like a volcano full of creative ideas in full eruption... It hits home for the kid in all of us who wants to bust out and run free."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Spielberg has made his first foray into computer-generated 3D animation. He proves a natural with the form, his (virtual) camerawork dizzying but fluid, and never confusing."
‑ Chris Knight, National Post
"Arguably Spielberg's most out-and-out fun movie since Jurassic Park."
‑ Ali Gray,
"If the only flaw in a film is that it's so entertaining that it liquefies your brain, we should all be thankful."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"The action grows wearisome as it grinds on, and the film becomes a succession of dazzling set pieces devoid of simple feelings."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"Hergé was the pioneer of an even-handed style of cartooning with solid lines and no shading that became known as ligne claire, but there is a decided lack of clear lines in this erratic movie adaptation of his work."
‑ Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail
"The movie is fun and colorful, but it doesn't have that creative explosion needed to bring Tintin to life."
‑ Rick Bentley, Fresno Bee
"It has been said that Hergé believed that Spielberg was the only one who would be able to do justice to his work, and after having spent over 25 years trying to get the film made, Spielberg has finally delivered a result that is quite extraordinary."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"Tin Tin is a visual feast; a wondrous exploration of the boundaries of computer animation and performance capture."
‑ Blake Howard, 2UE That Movie Show
