We Got This Covered

It isn't that The Adventures of Tintin is bad, but outside of the visuals, this film breaks no new ground for Spielberg.

Tom Clift

Spielberg's first animated film is hampered by a fan-pandering script, and is dragged down by a boring hero who would have been better served remaining on the page.

It's an unusual way to bring a childhood thing to life, to make a movie that contains no life.

This is probably the ugliest movie Spielberg's ever made.

...a worthy experiment that might enchant younger viewers but could bore older ones.

...the sort of throwback entertainment that made Raiders of the Lost Ark a groundbreaking blockbuster.. All that's missing is the spark, humor, romance, and the essential humanity that made Indy into an immortal screen hero.

After all the expectation, this Tintin feels strangely flat and lifeless. A War Horse it is not.

If you were expecting a bracing, thrilling Raiders of the Lost Ark, what we get here is more like a muddled, busy Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

I fear Spielberg and Jackson hitched their wagon to the wrong technological star here.

The action grows wearisome as it grinds on, and the film becomes a succession of dazzling set pieces devoid of simple feelings.

Maybe the very young or those familiar with the source material will enjoy it more. Personally I was left completely unaffected by it.

Famously, Hergé said that Spielberg was the only director capable of successfully bringing his creation to the big screen. That probably remains true. But this film hasn't done it.

Matt's Movie Reviews

Steven Spielberg ditches the anchor which is George Lucas and teams up with Peter Jackson and his WETA funhouse for The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, a magnificently made action adventure filled with spirit but lacking soul.

What begins as a bracing adventure yarn for kids of all ages descends into a charmless, increasingly chaotic last half that leaves you feeling pummeled rather than energized.

Diva Velez

Noisy, repetitive and obnoxious, The Adventures of Tintin's sensory overload is somehow blindingly dull. The barrage of onscreen overstimulation will keep kids glued to their seats, but won't make them care about or cherish the characters.

Like the screen Tintin, the movie proves less than inviting because it's been so wildly overworked: there is hardly a moment of downtime, a chance to catch your breath...

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Here, Tintin and pals are semi-cartoon characters careening through an unreal world. Instead of charming, intriguing, and exciting us, Spielberg and co. usually try to bowl us over.

If you come to Tintin with preexisting affection for the franchise, it might be easier to ... overlook the dull plot, slow to develop characters and miscalculated humor

Instead of being transported by the splashy mayhem, the audience winds up feeling exhausted by the one-dimensional story and disengaged from the thinly drawn characters.

Peter Sobczynski

A curious misfire that finds Spielberg trying so damned hard to dazzle audiences with one elaborate action sequence after another that the whole experience is more exhausting than exhilarating.
