Product Description

Tintin and his friends discover directions to a sunken ship commanded by Capt. Haddock's ancestor and go off on a treasure hunt.

From Amazon.co.uk

The Adventures of Tintin follows the exciting exploits of a young reporter, his dog, a sea captain with a drinking problem, and a couple of bumbling Interpol detectives as they travel from Europe to the Sahara and Morocco in pursuit of a pickpocket, model-ship collectors and long-lost treasure. Steven Spielberg's and Peter Jackson's long-awaited full-length film, based on the original Tintin comics by Hergé, combines the stories "The Secret of the Unicorn," "Red Rackham's Treasure," and "The Crab with the Golden Claws" into a generally fast-paced adventure that feels just a tad too long.

The individual stories and the characters Tintin, Snowy, Captain Haddock, and Thompson and Thomson are all quite faithfully represented. The motion-capture animation is similar to that of Polar Express and is both fascinating and a bit odd at times. As in the comics themselves, the characters are highly stylized and instantly recognizable, but Tintin's facial expression is eerily stoic and there's a hint of strangeness that's hard to put a finger on. Snowy is delightfully funny to watch, though he is a bit fluffier than in the original comics, and the real animation standouts are the secondary characters like Thompson and Thomson and Captain Haddock, who somehow seem absolutely perfect.
 
Devoted fans will revel in the abundance of small details that reference the comics and suggest a true love for Tintin on the filmmakers' parts, but even viewers who don't know a thing about the comics will thoroughly enjoy this exciting adventure. (Suitable for ages 7 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

I'll explain my review title later, but first, a quick summary:

Animation 10/10:
Possibly the best animation I have ever seen. The facial expressions, character movement, and the motion of clothing to wind, rain / character movement are outstanding. The crisp details of each scene were wonderful, as were the light and shade effects. There are people who are better qualified to make more specific comments relating to rendering and contrast etc. so I will leave that them.

Action 10/10:
Lots of it, really fast and with lots to take in and gasp at, but greatly tempered with the important slower scenes, used to explain plot progression. Certainly this is where the DVD's 'replay' value shows, as there may have been things missed the first time around and, even then, it worth watching the scenes again to marvel at the interactions of the characters, creatures, their vehicles and the environment. To explain the action further might spoil the film for others, so I will leave it there.

Storyline 10/10
Although some reviewers on Amazon are not happy with the storyline, I really enjoyed it. Certainly I had guessed some of it, but certainly not all of it, and it could even be progressed further if a 'Tin Tin 2' is made. It is important to stress some reviewers have read the entire series of Tin Tin books, but my review is purely based on having read the comic strip versions of the series. In that sense, considering the style of the comic strips, the storyline is excellent.

Humour 10/10:
Sadly some negative reviews resort to insulting adults who liked the humour, by claiming 'It's childish and only a 3 / 6/ 12 year old would find it funny.

This animated adventure is both produced and directed by Steven Spielberg in his first animated effort, it is in most ways a satisfying watch with some excellent animation, a good voice cast and an exciting storyline

I have quite a few of the Tintin books and enjoyed the exploits brought to life by the Belgian cartoonist Hergé (Georges Prosper Remi)

The film take inspiration from a number of books and mixes in some bits of it's own, The Crab with the Golden Claws and The Secret of the Unicorn are the two main plot lines. Cast do a decent job including Jamie Bell as Tintin, Daniel Craig who voices Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine and Red Rackham, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg provide the well known detectives Thomson and Thompson, no complaints about the voice acting

The story starts with Tintin and Snowy (his longstanding dog companion) at a market where they buy a model ship "The Unicorn", taking the ship back home it's broken by accident revealing a scroll inside it which is the basis for most of the film story, the attempts by others to steal the scroll and the hidden secrets it contains. It turns out there are other scrolls and when combined will reveal the location of the real Unicorn ship and the treasure it contains.

A fairly simple plot, very much in the style of adventure films both animated or not. The quality of animation is excellent throughout clearly a lot of effort has been put into the production.

This was the first 3D movie that I watched in my new 65" Panasonic Plasma and I loved it. I was not really convinced before I watched this movie that 3D on TV would be something that I would enjoy, but I am happy to be proved wrong. As for the movie, it is mix of elements from one or two Tintin books, but otherwise the story would be well known to all the Tintin fans (of which I am one - I own all the comics). It is fast paced, funny and the animation and 3D effects are great. I would also like to mention that amazon delivered this to Kazakhstan where I live now (having recently moved from Europe) in less than two weeks - in fact amazon delivered this ahead of other items that I had ordered on E-bay a week before I made the amazon order. Well done amazon!

Format: DVD
“The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn” is an animated film of the super-modern variety made by Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg, of all people. It's based on Franco-Belgian cartoonist Hergé's popular comic albums featuring the boyish but brave reporter Tintin, his half-mad and frequently drunken companion Captain Haddock, the incompetent detectives Thomson & Thompson, and (of course) Tintin's dog Snowy.

I read the comic album version of “The Secret of the Unicorn” as a child. The plot of the film was just as I remembered it…which means Jackson and Spielberg successfully tricked me, since the film version is really based on three different Tintin albums. Apart from “The Secret of the Unicorn”, plot elements from “The Crab with the Golden Claws” and “Red Rackham's Treasure” have been incorporated into the storyline. No hard feelings, though!

Since we're talking Hollywood, the action element of the original stories is heavily emphasized, while the crazy element is somewhat less pronounced. It's still there, though. The Thompson Twins are incredibly dim-witted as usual, the opera singer Bianca Castafiore is forever the diva (actually calling a sultan “a peasant”), and little Snowy (the dog, remember?) has more lives than your neighbor's cat. As for Captain Haddock's Scottish accent, I always pictured him that way! Great Scott, of course a crazy “English” sailor is really Scottish… However, it seems his colorful insults have been kept down to a minimum.

To be honest, the constant chases and fights of Jackson-Spielberg's remake bored me after a while, so I'm only giving “The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn” three stars. Yet, I suspect the really hardcore Tintin lovers (the kind of guys who continued reading the comic even as adults) will fancy this as a valuable addition to their blistering barnacles, ha ha…
