The intrepid boy reporter and his perpetually soused companion Captain Haddock take off in pursuit of pirate treasure in Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's dazzling computer-animated adventure epic.
The first collaboration between fantasy-film specialists and film-industry heavyweights Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, The Adventures of Tintin employs cutting-edge computer animation and motion-capture technology to bring Belgian cartoonist Hergé's beloved boy reporter to vivid big-screen life. After discovering a mysterious scroll hidden in a model of a seventeenth-century sailing ship, Tintin (Jamie Bell), his faithful dog Snowy, and the perpetually soused Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) embark on a globe-trotting adventure as they race to discover the long-lost treasure of the legendary pirate Red Rackham before it is claimed by the villainous Sakharine (Daniel Craig). Lovingly recreating Hergé's almost Dickensian universe, and featuring dazzling action sequences that seem like Spielberg's attempt to one-up the classic setpieces of his own Indiana Jones films, The Adventures of Tintin is "a song of innocence and experience, able to combine a sweet sense of childlike wonder and pureness of heart with the most worldly and sophisticated of modern technology. More than anything, it's just a whole lot of fun" (Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times).
