This was one of the best movies of 2011. I grew up with the Tintin cartoons and comics and only last summer got the news of a movie being made of it by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson. I saw it in 3D and was most pleased.
It starts of with Tintin at a market locating a model of a legendary ship called The Unicorn. An american emediatly approaches Tintin and warns him of some people looking for that ship and it has a greater story behind. Tintin now takes the challenge to find out why people are after the model and what really happened to the ship.
The story is good, shows no gender or age limits and is perfectly executed by Spielberg and Jackson. The performance capture and the animation of the characters and environment is outstanding. What more can i say... well the presentation of Tintin was what i might call a mind blowing scene just like Indiana Jones in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
The only thing i call a flaw in this movie is the scene with the Opera singer, the opening was long, well animated but still a bit stiff and i missed one of the best features of the Tintin Cartoon. Just like many Transformers fans was angry of the fact that the Transformers theme wasn't used in the motion picture.
All in all, it's a great movie.
