Plot Summary
Based on the internationally
beloved and irrepressible
characters created by Herge,
the story follows the
unquenchably curious young
reporter Tintin and his fiercely
loyal dog Snowy as they
discover a model ship
carrying an explosive secret.

Drawn into a centuries-old
mystery, Tintin finds himself
in the sight-lines of Ivan
Ivanovitch Sakharine, a
diabolical villain who believes
Tintin has stolen a priceless
treasure tied to dastardly pirate
named Red Rackham. But with
the help of his dog Snowy,
the salty, cantankerous
Captain Haddock and the
bumbling detectives Thomson
and Thompson, Tintin will
travel half the world, outwitting
and outrunning his enemies
in a breathless chase to find
the final resting place of The
Unicorn, a shipwreck that
may hold the key to vast
fortune... and a ancient curse.

The movie THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN is based on the classic comic book stories of a young journalist and a resourceful dog. It is fantastic in 3D, but brilliant in motion-capture animation that is done by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson who have collaborated together to adapt the series of Tintin into a movie franchise. Andy Serkis did a good job of performing Captain Haddock, but I couldn't tell that the villain was played by Daniel Craig. There are some scenes that might frighten young children and a big fight scene which is not with guns nor with dueling swords, you'll have to watch the movie to see what it really is.

The film is absolutely hilarious and really terrific for anyone who has read the books of Tintin or enjoys a good mystery movie should watch this feature adaptation by Spielberg and Jackson.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
