This movie is an accurate representation of Dannevirke: our local DVD shop is willing to get 21 copies of this crap and only one copy of The Artist. Moral of the story: it is time to get out of this town.
In this day and age, the average family fare is a movie with talking animals, 3D and caricatures rather than characters. The Adventures of Tintin does away with all of that (save for the 3D), and takes old-fashioned entertainment and puts a modern spin on it. And for once, I am actually looking forward to a sequel and the rest of the franchise, because after the way this started, I imagine it can only go upwards from here.
