All aspects of this movie were excellent. Highly recommended!

This film's animation was so realistic it entered what is called the Uncanny Valley. It's a bit creepy.

I love the print series, but in this film adaptation it has been Spielberged (aka Hollywooded) to death with extra standard action-movie features that surge over-the-top as the movie nears its conclusion.

Loved this film! Was a bit dubious as to how it would work, but Steven Spielberg + Peter Jackson.....Magic! Very true to the books and I loved the animation, was easy to forget they are mostly CGI. Snowy is adorable!

Captain Haddock: I thought you were an optimist. Tintin: You were wrong, weren't you? I'm a realist. Captain Haddock: Ah, it's just another name for a quitter. Tintin: You can call me what you like. Don't you get it? We failed. Captain Haddock: Failed. There are plenty of others willing to call you a failure. A fool. A loser. A hopeless souse. Don't you ever say it of yourself. You send out the wrong signal, that is what people pick up. Don't you understand? You care about something, you fight for it. You hit a wall, you push through it. There's something you need to know about failure, Tintin. You can never let it defeat you.
