Movie Review: the Adventures of Tintin

“Intrepid reporter Tintin and Captain Haddock set off on a treasure hunt for a sunken ship commanded by Haddock’s ancestor.”

While I distinctly remember writing a movie review of this movie several years ago, I can’t find a record of it so I’m going to do another review anyway. This movie came out in 2011 but I didn’t see it until I was travelling elsewhere in 2013. Since then, I have watched it several times with the residual memory of where I was and the individual with whom I originally saw this movie.

This movie had a lot of really good points about it and I liked how it showed problem-solving and intelligence, with a combination of understandable action. One of the really good things about this movie is near the end where Tintin experiences some self-doubt and Captain Haddock tells Tintin never to let failure defeat you.

While the lack of women in this movie is a little concerning, it also means that there was a distinct lack of a romantic or sexual subplot, which is oddly refreshing. I sometimes just wish that more movies would disregard the romantic or sexual subplot but also have women in them at the same time.

Overall, the movie is interesting and combines a detective story with humor and interesting animation techniques. I rate it as a solid three on my rating scale. It’s a movie I’m happy to watch every now and again.
