A bit of the old and a bit of the new make Tintin a winner.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4.0

(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.

...as he has for over twenty films with the director, John Williams provides a brilliant score that captures the on screen story beautifully.

Spielberg's first attempt at animation is stunning

While the motion-capture process still isn't as pleasing to the eye as either old-school Disney or new-school Pixar, its employment in The Adventures of Tintin still qualifies as leaps and bounds ahead of its use in the unwieldy antecedents in this field.

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

The virtual world allows Spielberg to devise shots that never seem to end, tracking down impromptu zip lines as if the camera had wings. It's a gimmick, to be sure, but a glorious one.

The Adventures of Tintin is a spectacle and a half, sure, but it's not nearly as thrilling to this reviewer as were the few, precious Tintin comics of his youth.

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

December 23, 2011
Spielberg's first animated film ever is constantly surprising for many reasons, the lack of familiarity a key one. Close behind is his conquering chronic issues of mo-cap animation, in regard to how real in appearance humans as cartoons should be.

It's exhausting and at least 10 minutes too long ... But Spielberg is able to keep you hooked with his intricately constructed chase scenes, which mesh well with the boyish aplomb of its eager young hero.

This is the Spielberg of 1941 and Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Doom, planning action scenes that will leave many feeling like they've been hit over the head.

December 22, 2011
Spielberg's use of 3-D, while never revelatory, is sufficiently concerned with giving us spectacle for our dollars that it at least manages to be distractingly big to look at.

December 22, 2011
The action grows wearisome as it grinds on, and the film becomes a succession of dazzling set pieces devoid of simple feelings.

Being completely unfamiliar with Hergé's popular illustrated stories, I came to this movie as a blank slate, with no expectations. After an imaginative opening title sequence... I was enveloped in the spirit of a rousing, old-fashioned adventure yarn.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.1/2
December 22, 2011
A satisfactory but slightly poky romp, saved by marvelous, expressive animation that generates a crisp, colorful feel for the world Belgian artist Herge created so very long ago.

December 22, 2011
A frenetic bonbon with an empty center, and a movie made without any perceivable audience outside of filmmakers besotted by their own innovative processes.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 22, 2011
While the live performers are credited and their real voices heard, there is none of the degrading with-it wisecracking so puzzingly popular nowadays.
December 22, 2011
"Tintin" has a wholesome, old-fashioned feel that will entice and entertain children as well as adults.
