I am surprised that there has not been a thread about Tintin already… It was a fantastic movie, and certainly one of the few that are really family-friendly this holiday season, but engages all age groups at different levels.
Hugely entertaining, unbelievable visual style, great voice-acting and direction, etc. The plot is an amalgamation of several of the original graphic novel plots. I really don’t have anything negative to say about this film at all. There are guns and some fights, but nothing gory. One character does get shot (off-screen) and killed early in the movie and his body is subsequently visible, but that is about it.
Particularly enjoyable to those who have read the source material – try to spot all the references.
Anyway, there did not seem to be any Tintin love, so I thought I would recommend it if anyone is in the mood to see a movie.
