With gorgeous animation and action typical of its director, Steven Spielberg brings a comic strip to the big screen - in 3-D, no less. 'Tintin' has a lot in common with 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' and other fanciful Spielbergian adventures.

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.

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.

When I say The Adventures of Tintin sent me back to a more innocent, idealized time; a moment that I wanted to share with my children, I am not talking about watching a curiously brave investigative reporter.

Along with the wondrous visuals, a rollicking adventure that careens at a breakneck speed from one death and gravity defying adventure to the next.

...a misguided, frequently overblown animated endurance test that's rarely as much fun as Spielberg has clearly intended.

[Spielberg] has used the form itself like a brand-new tool in his filmmaking kit, and the effect is exhilarating.

The film is a very faithful adaptation of Herge's material.

Offers calorie-free empty thrills and one of the most impressively choreographed chase sequences ever, but doesn't really draw the audience in too much.

Unapologetically enthusiastic and simple, The Adventures of Tintin is an unpretentious, guilt-free thrill ride that finds strength in its populist, uncomplicated nature.

Not only captures the essence of Tintin's appeal but also the essence of what we recognize as the Spielberg artistic mandate.

It's a '50s B-movie-serial-style adventure with a new millenial sheen courtesy of cutting edge motion capture and CG animation.

With overtones of 'Indiana Jones' this is the best animated adventure film of the year
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

The action is dazzling in terms of overwhelming your senses, but it is rarely awe-inspiring; it doesn't grab you by the throat or rattle your nerves like Spielberg's best work, and it lacks his instinct for feeling.

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.

A highly impressive technical and visual achievement that unfortunately has very little to offer in the plot and character departments.

A bit of the old and a bit of the new make Tintin a winner.

Bill Gibron
December 27, 2011
(A) rollercoaster ride of thrills and spills, a true leap for the otherwise awkward animation type and proof that when visionaries sit behind the lens, anything can be turned into a wondrous work of art.

Spielberg, the analog stalwart, has brought out the best in this new filmmaking technology.
