The Adventures of Tintin
Not a comic book. ok? - PFR
"So a comic book gets the Hollywood treatment again?" Expectations immediately fall. "It's TINTIN?!.. Spielberg and Jackson are involved?!" Expectations immediately rise. Yes Tintin was set to be momentous. To the French and Belgium population however, before work even began on Tintin, it was deemed sacraligious. To everyone else, myself included there were serious doubts. But sitting in the cinema I decided, "No. This is a movie. This cannot reasonable be compared to an utterly different format. That would be illogical." So this review is a criticism of an animated action movie. If we leave aside the illogical agenda of the comic book lovers (I myself, a Tintin comic book fan) then we have on our hands a gorgeously animated film. The film uses new action-to-animation technology, most of the action being acted out in a small room, using blue-screens and suits. And it definately ups the quality on standard animation. You see wrinkles, pores and many other detailed aspects of each character, beautifully animated. Plot is a mix of three Tintin books, which will upset the die-hard comic book lovers, however as I said earlier, the format (film) demands a different angle and the mix-up is likely necessary to keep momentum. All in all a wonderfully thing to see, plot not extraordinary, but entertaining none the less.
