The Adventures of Tintin
This year, discover how far adventure will take you.
Intrepid young reporter Tintin and his loyal dog Snowy are thrust into a world of high adventure when they discover a ship carrying an explosive secret. As Tintin is drawn into a centuries-old mystery, Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine suspects him of stealing a priceless treasure. Tintin and Snowy, with the help of salty, cantankerous Captain Haddock, and bumbling detectives Thompson & Thomson, travel half the world, one step ahead of their enemies as Tintin endeavors to find The Unicorn, a sunken ship that may hold a vast fortune, but also an ancient curse.
This is the best Indian Jones movie I've seen in years.
Incredibly boring with unflattering characters and attempts at comedy that had me eye rolling ever bit as much as I was checking my watch. No stakes, no story, no intrigue. Just a series of set pieces that, for the most part, linger on nothing of interest.
The character of Tin Tin himself is as bland as he appears. Wish I would've skipped this one.
A beautifully animated adventure of mediocre proportions.
My 2 year old fell asleep 20 minutes in, woke up when the plane was crashing, said daddy, daddy, daddy the plane on fire, then fell back asleep.
I watched the trailer and was somewhat sceptical. I had this nagging suspicion that it would be sitting at the bottom of The Uncanny Valley, a la Polar Express.
Thankfully, my suspicions were entirely unfounded. The production of this film carefully captured the illustration style of the comic books and blended it most convincingly with that real-human feel. I think it was something to do with the rendering of the eyes, but it never felt uncanny to me.
I watched it with my father-in-law and my seven-year-old son. All of us had read some of the original books, and we all thoroughly enjoyed the film.
Some really intense action sequences, some good humour, a great plot, and great cinematography - I particularly enjoyed some of the surreal cuts between scenes and flashbacks.
Really well executed - looking forward to the next one(s)!
Great snakes! Blistering barnacles! Great Scotland Yard! Spielberg has made his best film since Saving Private Ryan! Technically brilliant, visually stunning, riotously funny, breath-takingly exciting and brain-teasingly clever to boot, it's family blockbuster entertainment of the highest order.
Andy Serkis is the star of the show, but Jamie Bell more than holds his own by keeping his accent in place for once. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost turn up for supporting parts Thomson and Thompson, sustaining their double-act credibility, even in the medium of animation. But, it's the voiceless part of Snowy that makes off with the film, making you want an actual dog like him (even if you're a cat person, like myself!)
The animation is simply revolutionary, Weta…
I am completely unaware of any other affiliations of the Tintin character, meaning this is the very first of anything (movie, tv show, comic strip, etc.) that I have seen in the story of Tintin and his adventures. However prior to watching this and from the trailer I alone I gathered he was a sort of boy wonder, solving mysteries long before Scooby Doo and the gang. So I was interested and especially to find out how it would be with Spielberg at the helm and George Lucas producing.
Well from the very beginning, it was quite apparent that the animation was first class and so realistic that for a moment I thought if it might be the Linklater trait…
Some cool action scenes but I wished the character of Tintin was more fleshed out and interesting. Also the motion capture animation is very hit-or-miss. If you are more familiar with the Tintin character perhaps you'll enjoy it more.
The motion capture gives this more of a movie feel the tradition animation.Excellent considering the people involved it had to be.
The Adventures of Tintin is a "fun for all ages" film that delivers on the promise for once. It is a goal usually only met by the majority of Pixar animations and a refreshing change of pace for animated films outside of their roster. The best example of this quality is that the film excludea no one. There are no crude fart jokes or Looney Tunes antics reserved for the palletes of the youngest children, nor are there subtle wink-wink suggestive innuendo moments for mom and dad.It is just a funny and exciting film that all age brackets can enjoy equally at the same times.
I did not go into this film with more than passive knowledge of Tintin. I…
¿Es posible convertir un personaje de tebeo en algo aún más caricaturesco? Sí, Spielberg lo demuestra.
A great animated movie.
Although i didn't read much of the original comics, i really enjoyed this movie. I also really liked the facial animation in this movie and the fact that Steven Spielberg stays true to the comic. Job well done!
The film simply looks gorgeous. The characters move fluidly and realistically thanks to the motion capture. Hair looks realistic, and the characters not only look good, but seem reasonably true to the comic book appearances. The story is exciting with occasional humor, and while Tintin himself needs a touch more depth, this is more than made up for with Captain Haddock, who is the true focus of the story. morganrlewis.wordpress.com/2013/05/16/the-adventures-of-tintin/">Read full review.
Let me start by saying I am not at all familiar with the source material. I've heard the name, but that's it. Here in the US the majority of people have never even heard of it. That lack of familiarity didn't dampen my interest, though. On the contrary, I was curious to see something I knew nothing about.
First and foremost, this could have been a decent movie, if not a good one.... IF it was done in live-action. But by going the horrible motion-capture route, they've made it mediocre at best. The world created here looks marvelous - the sets, the cinematography (if you call it that)... So much of what we see looks practically real... until you look…
Astounding CGI, let down by mediocre plot and script. Good though.
es realmente chingón cómo la cámara ensaya y ensaya y ensaya (sobre todo girando, pero también cambiando de altura) hasta que llega a su punto máximo, que es el plano secuencia de la persecución.
además de eso está la mentadísima edición –cómo se llamará?– en que un aspecto del cuadro da lugar al que sigue.
hasta se olvida lo ñoño del guión, caray.
