Review: Adventures of TinTin-All fun, no ulterior messages like in other cartoons.

A lot of my posts I’ve been about politics or the culture wars, not about Movies.  Part of that is from the election, and part of that is due to time constraints in my life.  It has not been the fun I thought I would have with the blog, so I do with great joy come out with a Movie Review.  Out on DVD and on demand, is the Animated Feature, The Adventures of Tintin.  I didn’t know much about the comic it was based on, but the trailer looked good, so I rented it.

This movie is an action-packed non-stop thrill ride that can’t keep your seat.  The reason for that could be it’s produced by Peter Jackson (Lord of The Rings) and directed by Steven Spielberg.  There are also no ulterior messages in the movies, like ‘big business is evil’ or  ‘we have to stop the habitat of dancing penguins from being destroyed’ or whatever liberal nonsense the studios want to indoctrinate children this week.

The titular character is voiced by Jamie Bell (Billy Elliott, Jumper) with Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings, King Kong) and Daniel Craig (Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace) voicing the Parts of Captain Haddock and the villain Sakharine, respectively.  Tin-Tin, his faithful dog, Snowy, and Haddock are on a race to find the clues to a treasure before the villain Sakrarine finds them.  The movie’s comedy relief, the policemen Thompson and Thomson are voiced by team of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, who are more than adequate, but only have a small role in the movie.  If they have a sequel like the movie websites say, they should increase Pegg and Frost’s parts to showcase their humor.

The 3D animation is superior to other animated movies like Shrek, or Cars, especially in the action sequences.  If you want a movie that is a wonderful escape for reality for an hour or two, and you don’t have to worry about your children being inundated with propaganda then The Adventures of Tintin is a safe bet.

I give a review of scrolls.  This movie is not for small children due to some violence and drinking.  Rated PG.


About Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit of Movies, etc...

I am aspiring writer whose interested in Politics and Movies, but is sometimes too interested in fan fiction instead of his own work. I got the idea to write this blog watching Glenn Beck during one of his rants about Star Wars. I hope you enjoy this site, even if you have a different point of view.
