Went for Tintin movie today. As a child, I was a voracious reader, and read a whole lot of books, on a wide range of topics. Without doubt, Tintin comics was one of my favourites. The Tintin series had everything one would wish for – comedy, adventure and originality. So yesterday, when I heard that a movie has been released on the Tintin series and that too, from Steven Spielberg, in 3-D, it was too much to resist.
Admittedly, the Secret of the Unicorn is not the best of Tintin's stories. There have been others that I have liked more. In fact, this movie is a mix of three of his titles. The director’s choice may have been dictated by the need to show a lot more action, than what a Tintin story normally has. Whatever the reason, the movie is worth a watch for its outstanding animation and the sheer memories that it will bring back to you – Snowy, Captain Haddock and of course, Thomson & Thompson!
