I've never read any of the Tintin graphic novels. So going in cold I didn't know what to expect. With the talent involved (Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Steven Moffat, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Andy Serkis...) it would be very surprising if I found myself disappointed. I was not. The animation is amazing and truly a technical wonder. The "all-in-one shot" motorbike scene was incredible. The opening credits are entertaining all on its own. The script is funny and full of character. I look forward to the sequel.
