The Adventures of Tintin is an animated epic filled with adventure and excitement. My 8-year-old daughter and I got to attend an early screening specifically so she could give a kid’s perspective on the film. Here is what she thought:
Tintin is a reporter that solves all sorts of mysteries. The movie was all about pirates and a quest. Tintin buys a model ship that leads to him getting kidnapped and taken to a cargo ship. There, he escapes and meets Captain Haddock, the two team up with Tintin’s dog Snowy to find scrolls that will lead to the Haddock family secret treasure.
It was fantastic, it had lots of action. Out of 100 I would rate it 100 and I would think other kids should see it because older kids would probably like the action too, it has a lot of adventure. Younger kids would probably really like the pirate parts, I know my brother loves pirates so he would want to go and see it.
My favorite characters were Tintin and Snowy and Captain Haddock. Snowy was able to find a lot of things that Tintin couldn’t find. One of my favorite parts was when Snowy sees a pickpocket and when he is finally caught by the two policemen they see all the wallets, the guy says he can’t stop, he loves wallets, he loves the way they smell and he keeps them all in alphabetical order. It was really funny.
I think Tintin is a really fun movie that everyone should go see.
Tintin stars Daniel Craig, Andy Serkis, Jamie Bell and my personal favorites Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. It is directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by Peter Jackson. With a great cast and being led by Spielberg and Jackson it would be hard for this movie not to be epic. From the adult’s perspective I was thoroughly entertained, it was an adventure that reminded me most of Indiana Jones, had Indy been an animated reporter. It is a great choice for your family. My daughter gave it a perfect 100%, I would rate it at 97%.
