Yet another masterpiece which is been narrated perfectly by an expert-team. Initially the movie starts with the eye-catching animation along with the title which makes the audience settle down in seat patiently. Aftermath comes the main film that embraces the nerves of each and every viewer who can never take their eyes from the screen and can’t stop applauding until the movie ends.
The story follows a young journalist named Tintin who after purchasing a model ship, sculpted in a legendary sailing vessel called the Unicorn, begins to smell something suspicious happening around him. Learning the story of a battle at sea and a long lost treasure, Tintin sets out on an adventure along with the ancestor of the Unicorn’s captain, Archibald Haddock. As their journey progresses they have been constantly interrupted by the villainous Ivanovich Sakharine, who is also behind this treasure. Screenplay by Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish plays a significant role as the scene by scene change-over is well presented and can be considered as the height of creativity. Director Steven Spielberg once again proves his part by maintaining a good pace throughout the movie with well-researched, thoughtful and humorous dialogues and also with an incredible back-ground score.
The movie can definitely be quoted as the “next-generation” animation movie as the characters were well placed, the expressions seem to be realistic and the same goes with the locations as well. Right from their skin texture to the complex expressions, the characters in The Adventures of TINTIN not only look incredibly natural but also have exaggerated features that allow the movie to have a stronger connection to the ‘Animation’ category.
The Adventures of TINTIN is truly a Spielberg’s more than Herge’s. Nobody does action-adventure movie with such an entertainment packed into it; remember ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade?’
