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

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.

By patriciakapp
My kids & husband really appreciated it. It was a little nutty for me, but I am too practical - if you suspend reality, you will enjoy it. It is very safe for kids (no blood, but lots of...

TInTin

I don't know how a lot of my friend have not even hear of TINTIN before. I used to watch the show all the time when I was younger. (21) I thought Steven Spielberg did a good job creating the...

What took them sooo long??!! GO-IT'S GREAT IN 3D/IMAX

By midwicket
Having been a Tintin fan since the late 1960's, I wasn't sure what to expect with "The Adventures of Tintin". But Steven Speilberg has done it again! For those who are familiar with Herge's series...

Most of these fall apart like Polar Express because the filmmakers are so hung up on the technology that the film falls flat. Not so with master adventure storyteller Stephen Spielberg. This film...

Creatively amazing and visually stunning

By HoodCritic1
I'm not sure if Spielberg was channeling "Indiana Jones" when he made this and I don't really care. This was a fun ride. I really didn't pay this movie any mind but since it was drawing so much...

The Adventures of Tintin
