The Adventures of Tintin Movie Review

Ratings:4/5 Reviewer:Rajeev Masand Site:IBNLive

Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. A globetrotting escapade through exotic locations, the film is packed with thrilling chases and swashbuckling action atop rickety seaplanes and hulking steamers. Quirky characters are involved in solving an old-fashioned mystery about a hidden treasure without any reliance on modern gadgets, and even John Williams’ booming score has a nostalgic feel to it.Tintin purists might grumble about a handful of liberties taken by the film’s writers in the process of turning three stories into one script, but Spielberg’s film stays true to the spirit of the books. Spielberg places him at the heart of a fast-paced, colorful adventure that is too much fun to resist. I’m going with four out of five for The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. It’s the kind of film that’ll bring out the boy in you. Expect to have a big smile plastered on your face throughout.

It could have ended up as a heady cocktail of the Indiana Jones and the Pirates of the Caribbean series, but The Adventures of Tintin is so much more than recycled headiness.And that’s because of its brilliant new technique of filming — motion capture animation — that literally brings to lifeThe story too is equally enticing with loads of action to pep up the tenor of the film.But then all’s well that ends well. And as Captain Haddock puts it, for there’s more treasure lying deep down in the oceans that needs to be found. Sequel, Spielberg!

Sure, there are bits that work, bits that come directly from those fabulous pages, but the rest of it is strictly pedestrian, an adventure sloppily pasted together with action setpieces to glue the film and keep it from falling apart. Good-looking explosions? Absolutely. Impressive chase sequences? You bet. But that’s all filler in a depressingly vacant Tintin film that steers well clear of the spirit of the books. So clear, in fact, that it throws in maudlin, clichéd lines of clunky dialogue about belief and self-worth and one’s true self. Ugh. What is the point of taking Hergé’s glorious world and paring it down to look more like our own?

The team works wonderfully on the technology to give us breathtaking action scenes which come at the right time to avoid any yawn plus the flirting with the actors features via motion capture tech where artistes make their presence felt in this 3D animated world. Superb.Right from the start when snowy starts showing his heroics to us we understand why this comic adaptation was planned. The action scenes are thoroughly enjoyable but the best part comes during the climax in the Moroccan city.

What’s Good: The entertaining and engaging script; the comedy and adventure; the acting; the excellent motion-capture, animation and visual effects.What’s Bad: Since the characters have not been established much, viewers who are not well-known to the Tintin stories will miss out on a lot; for those watching the film in the 3D, the dark glasses make the colours appear very dull. Verdict: The Adventures Of Tintin – The Secret Of The Unicorn is an entertaining fare that will do well at the Indian box-office, especially in the metropolitan cities

Principally adapted from The Secret of the Unicorn with snatches of The Crab with the Golden Claws and Red Rackham’s Treasure, the film is a far cry from the Ellipse Nelvana cartoons that were more faithful to the source material and its bold, neat Ligne Claire (clear line) styling.But Spielberg in his first animated film (and comic adaptation) captures the dynamism of Herge’s works without letting over reverence come in the way of grafting a new faced-paced, suspense-filled thriller which stays true to the lively spirit and ample humour of Herge’s volumes.

The film infuses animation with realism and what we get is a heady concoction which leaves the viewer spell bound. Overall, the film satisfies the thirst of avid animation lovers with some marvelous graphics and top notch performances. The story of course is the winner with Herge leaving a treasure of adventures which was waiting to be discovered by filmmakersWatch it if you are a Tintin fan, you won’t be disappointed. And if you are new to the world Herge and his wonder boy, then you have just stumbled upon gold.Three cheers for this one!
