Movie #71 – 07 April 2012
The Adventures of TinTin: The Secret of the Unicorn (USA – 2011) Directed by Steven Sbielberg
Is ‘The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn’ a masterpiece, then? No, no, no, far from it.
Does it achieve what is desired to be, a rip roaring fantastic 100 minutes ride? Yes, but it stays there and goes no further than that.
Its imperfection is not what lets the movie down. The absence of ‘something’ does. And if Steven Spielberg cannot add the ‘something’ missing nobody will, even Peter Jackson (who’s directing the next chapter). Apart from all that, I thoroughly enjoyed the ride and felt like a kid again. Fun, fun, fun and more fun. Bring on the next one. With the missing ‘something’ or without.
