Hollywood is always in the habit of breaking new boundaries and turning new stones, Tintin does the same. The most awaited movie of the year directed by the legendry Steven Spielberg turns out to be exceptional in conception and also in execution.
The story is straightforward; Tintin is a young journalist who happens to find a hidden parchment underneath the mast of a miniature ship that belongs to Sir Francis Haddock, the ancestor of Captain Haddock. The parchment holds secrets that can lead to the long lost treasure of the Unicorn. Do Tintin and company find the treasure? What adventures await them? These questions are answered in this witty and able movie.
A short and crisp movie is always welcome in this fast-paced world of ours. But this movie seems so cramped at the beginning. Hasty end to comedy, action and dialogues make the beginning of the movie the dullest part of the movie, though this sets up the audience for what is to come. As the movie crosses past the 30 minute mark it changes gears and settles into a brisk pace filled with humour and action. Spielberg decides to remain true to Herge by using the original sequences of the comics itself. Dialogues are amusing and sharp and do not become long and mind-numbing. Motion-capture has been utilized to its premier potential. Details have been carved into the film with paramount care and this is where the movie overtakes all other animation movies. The pre-climax sequence in 3D is a visual delight. After Avatar this movie seems to have made use of 3D technology to its perfection. No headaches whatsoever! Editing at the beginning of the movie is slapdash but works wonders during the action sequences. The actors Jamie Bell (Tintin), Simon Pegg, Daniel Craig (Red Rackam) and Andy Serkis (Captain Haddock) have done justice to their roles. Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have woven a script that not only gratifies Tintin fans but also general audience.
Everything said, Tintin is not a movie to be watched alone. Bring out the child in you and go watch this fun-filled action adventure with your family and friends.
TINTIN- A MUST WATCH!!!!
