About the Film
Tintin and his friends discover directions to a sunken ship commanded by Capt. Haddock's ancestor and go off on a treasure hunt.
Fun for all the family
While this film does not quite do justice to Hergé's original stories, it is still an entertaining adventure, with some colourful characters, exotic locations and a mysterious plot, which may at times fork into absurdity a little more than the written Tintin did, but this is easily forgotten when measured against the overall essence of the picture. It combines the stories of The Crab with the Golden Claws, The Secret of the Unicorn and Red Rackham's Treasure with a little embellishment and overall the transition from page to screen is made effectively. However, quite easily the most impressive feature of this film is the staggering visuals: the results of the motion-capture technology are simply mind-blowing and at times you have to pinch yourself as a reminder you are watching CGI effects. John Williams' score is also, as ever with a Speilberg feature, great. This is something the entire family will enjoy and I can see this as the start of a highly successful franchise.
Fun and enjoyable to watch
I saw it at the cinema and it was the best film I've seen in ages !!!!
I saw this film in cinema and it was probably the best animated film of the year!
