The Adventures of Tintin - My Review
The Adventures of TinTin - 2011 - Directed by Steven Spielberg
In the hands of director Spielberg, "Tintin" is an animated version of Raiders of Lost Ark. but lacks that films humor, charm and overall sense of style.
Jamie Bell voices Tintin, a young reporter who will stop at nothing to obtain a new story and his throw caution to the wind mentality puts him on a collision course with Red Rackham (Daniel Craig) as they both search for a sunken ship full of treasure.
Spielberg's best films feature indelible characters with a strong visual style so its surprising that neither exist here. In fact, it is a struggle at times to keep up with the action in the frame as Spielberg, being a novice to animation, definitely believes in more is better rather than letting the story speak for itself. Rather than being an exhilarating ride it turns into a wearisome, forgetful disappointment.
Rating: 5 out of 10
