Movie – The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn

I just remember the name from my childhood rather than any of his adventures so I’m looking forward to seeing 21st century TinTin. Although it is still set in bowler hat times and what starts as a children’s film soon builds into an fast moving action comedy as TinTin (Jamie Bell) and Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) join forces to look for hidden treasure that could save Haddock from being just a drunken sailor who’s last in a line of seafarers.

All the time, the pair are fighting off the wicked Mr. Sakharine (Daniel Craig) who until know has had the Captain locked up whilst hi-jacking his ship.

How’s your thirst for adventure, Captain?

Throw in a couple of bumbling detectives and this animation is a fun packed, high-speed film with no room for boredom that for once lives up to the Spielberg hype. Oh, the star of the show, Snowy the dog.
