I liked this DVD. It is okay for young children. There is some subtle violence. No sexual scenes. The plot is strong. If you like 3D cartoons and pirate stories involving sleuthing you will like this movie.

Silly, but doable as a fun kids action film. (Indiana Jones: the cartoon version) However, even for animation, many of the reactive situations weren't believable for the characters, as defined. (Debated whether to give it 2 1/2 or 3 Stars. : )

Really funny movie even though it didn't exactly stick with the comic books.

Way too much: too long, overstuffed with cliché'd action. too eager to dazzle you with its cleverness and bludgeon you into submission, so you don't notice the void at the center.
I fast forwarded through the last third. Tin-Tin turns out to be a rather dull investigator; as usual in these films, all his vitality goes into the dog Snowy. Haddock is an incongruity -- as an alcoholic, is he a jerk or a pitiable victim?

Steven Spielberg anglicizes the popular Belgian comic strip about crime-solving reporter Tintin and his trusty terrier Snowy and then proceeds to have the time of his life with it. When Tintin purchases an old model ship at a London flea market he inadvertently stumbles upon a deadly mystery involving sunken treasure and modern day pirates. A clue contained within the ship’s tiny mast will lead our plucky protagonist on a wild chase halfway around the world where he’ll do battle on the high seas and fight for survival in a burning desert—evading bloodthirsty cutthroats every step of the way and befriending an alcoholic captain who may very well hold the ultimate answer in his whisky-soaked head…if only he can remember it. Europe circa 1930’s is brought to wondrous comic book life in this motion capture animation epic which combines live actors (looking waxen and faintly disquieting in their generated bods) with CGI animals and candy-coloured period sets. In the lead role Jamie Bell, sporting our hero’s signature ginger hair and elaborate quiff, exhibits all the wide-eyed wonder you’d expect while a cast of mainstays from comedy and drama circles huff and puff their way through a roster of elaborately overdone support characters. But, while the impeccable special effects left me reeling—a pair of flaming ships battling it out in a hurricane was superbly done and a giddy dash through a quasi-mystical sultanate must have looked awesome in 3D—Spielberg’s continuous attempts to ramp up the excitement with one dizzying chase sequence after another become tiresome while a quaint little non-ending practically screams “Sequel!” Apparently it’s due in 2016 but I’m not holding my breath.

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.
