And if there's a problem with Tintin, it's that it's too big and booming.

Everything in The Adventures of Tintin is meticulous - this is a Steven Spielberg movie, after all.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
Quite simply, The Adventures of Tintin is a model of modern movie craftsmanship. It's also, I'm afraid, rather dull.
