Truly impressive visual effects lift this movie above the usual affair.
While the story is rangy and plot elements do suffer, Spielberg clearly knows how to set up an entertaining spectacle.
I especially liked it's numerous homages to the original material whilst still being refreshingly charming in its own way.
Overall, a fun way to introduce Tintin to the kids.
This film divides opinion, but all I’ll say about it is that although the plot is sick, sadistic, twisted and violent, every single shot is beautiful and thought–provoking; every action—no matter how violent—has it’s purpose, even if only to demonstrate the extent a man will go to find out the truth.
