Adventure, Animated
Steven Spielberg, also responsible for War Horse, put together this moderately entertaining CGI-animated movie based on the comic-book series by Hergé. The series is big in Europe, but folks in the United States generally don’t care about the intrepid journalist Tintin and his dog, Snowy. After watching this, I can sort of understand the Western disenchantment. The visuals pop, but the character of Tintin himself (voiced by Jamie Bell) is far from engaging. The same can be said for Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis), who is sort of annoying. The duo goes on a search for some treasure in a race against a mean British guy (voiced amusingly by Daniel Craig). The adventure never really soars to great heights, and the film winds up being one of Spielberg’s less-interesting films. This is OK … but maybe Spielberg should just make one movie at a time.
