Jim Philpott’s review:
As a big fan of the comic books was looking forward to seeing this. However I found myself disappointed with The Adventures of Tintin, primarily due to my love of the comic books. It felt too much like Raiders of the Lost Ark and not at all the seamless adaptation I was expecting. I left the film angered and saddened by the changes made to such a great story.
On second viewing my opinions changed to some extent. Casting aside my allegiances to pure Tintin story, I found myself enjoying the film in its own right. It is not a bad film, on the contrary a rather good film, for the Indiana Jones types in particular, but something was missing for me...
