The Adventures of Tintin is a beloved comic series from the 20th century. In this full featured 3-D film, Tintin and his trusty dog, Snowy, sets out a grand adventure after an innocent purchase of a ship model caused some big problems!
Prior to this movie, I never watched and read anything related to Tintin. Though I was familiar with Tintin and Snowy because they are iconic characters. When I started the film, my mom knew right away what the movie was about from the opening credits.
The first thing that I noticed was the incredibly detailed and realistic 3-D design of the entire movie. I enjoyed the fast pace action and despite it being an animated movie, it is slightly geared towards an older audience due to the violence and drunken stupor moments. I thought the characters were exceptionally well-done, from their personalities to their roles. Though I still have no idea how old Tintin really is.
This is one of those movies that an adult could thoroughly enjoy. It brings back that nostalgia of a beloved series that many people grew up with over the years. Couple it with modern 3-D technology, it's a great movie to watch!
