Movie synopsis
The Adventures of Tintin is a two-disc set of an animated movie that follows the adventures of a young boy named Tintin and his dog Snowy. The Adventures of Tintin starts off when Tintin buys a model ship called the Unicorn in a market. The Adventures of Tintin begins to weave its plot when the villain, Mr. Sakharine, unsuccessfully attempts to purchase the model ship from Tintin and resorts to kidnapping the boy and taking him on board an old cargo ship destined for Morocco. Sakharine bribes the crew of the ship to mutiny against Captain Haddock and take over the ship, but Haddock, Tintin, and Snowy escape and make their way to Morocco. Haddock informs Tintin that his ancestor, Sir Francis Haddock commanded the original Unicorn some three hundred years earlier and was forced to scuttle it when attacked by the ancestor of Mr. Sakharine. Haddock reveals that the treasure aboard the Unicorn was hidden by his ancestor before it could fall into the elder Sakharine’s hands, and the clues to its whereabouts are hidden inside the model ship that Tintin had purchased. This animated movie was released in 2012 as a two-disc set that includes a Blu-ray and standard DVD along with an Ultraviolet edition that is available for download to digital devices.

Editorial reviews

3.5 stars out of 4 -- "THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN is an ambitious and lively caper, miles smarter than your average 3-D family film..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (12/20/2011)

"[A] song of innocence and experience, able to combine a sweet sense of childlike wonder and pureness of heart with the most worldly and sophisticated of modern technology."
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan (12/21/2011)

"Tintin's adventures offer Spielberg the boundless fantasy of animation....The design team whirl Hergé’s elegant, shadowless lines into a sumptuously modeled 3D universe."
Sight and Sound - David Jays (12/01/2011)

4.5 stars out of 5 -- "With the best use of motion capture yet, Spielberg has translated the story of the youthful Tintin, his spirited pooch Snowy and the eccentric Captain Haddock into a first class action adventure..."
Box Office - Pete Hammond (10/22/2011)

"ADVENTURES OF TINTIN makes for a solid ride....Spielberg directs with a keen eye for clarity, both visually and narratively..."
A.V. Club - Tasha Robinson (12/20/2011)

The Adventures of Tintin

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Adapted from three of the comics, Spielberg's re-creation of the comics introduces us to Tintin (Jamie Bell), a Belgian reporter who gets caught up in all sorts of adventures. One day, he found a model of a ship, the Unicorn and bought it and brought it home. However, when Tintin was buying the ship, two men came to try to buy the model, Sakharine (Daniel Craig) and Barnaby. Later, Tintin discovers that the model holds an important secret and somehow, the secret is linked to the real ship itself. On the way for answers, he meets the grumpy Haddock and head off to an adventure spanning around the globe with his white fluffy dog Snowy.

The animation is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. It's not right to call it a CGI film as the motion of the characters are much smoother than that of CGI films. Tintin's animated self looks stunning (even though he looks kind of different from his comic-self) in his blue long sleeves. Snowy is fluffier than ever. Captain Haddock is grumpier than ever. All of the animation is simply breathtaking and the best I've ever seen.

I like how they change scenes. While most other movies just shift scenes normally, this film uses a little imagination and is ingenious in shifting scenes. They can change from a scene of shaking hands to a desert scene by using the outline of the two hands into the surface of the desert. This thing is just entertaining and great in its own right and deserves some reward.

The movie itself is fun to watch. The story is compelling, the lines are natural-sounding, and the action is plenty of fun to watch. It is great excitement to watch and I was hooked from beginning to end. Great plot,awesome action, breathtaking animation equals up to amazing movie.

TINTIN made our bus ride from LA to Fresno State bearable, enjoyable!!!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Amazing movie . . . yah, yah, yah it's a cartoon, CGI (computer generated image) movie, but the lighting, shadows and all are pretty darn good. The story is action packed and fast moving . . . and the reason these movies exist is to tell a story with action that you just can't do with human actors. In fact, that's why so much of the movies we see today all have some kind of CGI to go along with the humans. Star Trek would be a big zero without CGI.

A very enjoyable experience. I got the move from an eBay auction and my wife played it on the tour bus for her marching band's tour to Fresno State for a music clinic and then on to Yosemite National Park to stay at the Camp Curry Village tent cabins. Truly a marvelous excursion and event with a bus ride made much more enjoyable and bearable with TINTIN!

a movie that doesn't "play down" to children... an honest ad

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

great movie! i bought it for our grandchildren aged 3 to 7, thinking it would be fluffy and nice and cute... at first, when we viewed it with them, i was a bit stunned at the "adult-ness" of the presentation, the multileveled character of the script and animation, i wondered if we should shut it down. at some points, interestingly, the older two children would hide behind the couch, but when we suggested we'd shut it off, they begged us not to.... it was the 3 year old who wouldn't budge! he ate it up! i found myself wondering why these reactions.... i've concluded that the kids felt the challenge of the presentation, somehow knew it wasn't a "playing down to them" movie, and they saw realism despite the animated nature of the piece. it's awfully well done, and i followed up by purchasing a reading version (not graphic novel...) for the eldest child. she grabbed it and dove into it without skipping a beat. she could hardly wait to read the next adventure. the parents, who are very careful what the children watch, also loved the DVD. i think it will also be viewable for years to come.... would recommend, but pre-watch it first, if you're doubtful... it worked awfully well for us!

TINTIN 3D STUNNING SPECTACLE! NEVER SEEN 3D LIKE THIS! REAL BEYOND BELIEF!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

TinTin is a stunning movie that will floor you. You will be amazed at the detail. You will think to yourself..."Avatar might have lost Best Picture to TinTin. This is not like any animated movie you have seen before. It is so life like. Incredibly sophisticated. Jam packed with a background world as beautiful as what you are watching in the forefront. One other 3D movie comes to mind that totally made me grin ear to ear...Avatar. Avatar is completely different when it comes to story but identical when it comes to being amazed by what you are watching. Now when it comes to TinTin, I have to say that I've never seen this kind of 3D movie. James Cameron himself could not do better. Sorry James...I see you...anyway, Spielberg blew me away with this new kind of animated feature. I loved it! You will love it! It's meant for adults or teens but not for little children. There is violence and people get killed. It is also funny! I will never part with my TinTin 3D Blu-ray. One more thing, if anyone else thinks that TinTin's movie intro is strange, boring, bland, confusing...or just fine, mention your thoughts when you do your review too. TinTin is a MUST HAVE.

Entertainment the whole family can enjoy! Lots of action, great graphics, compelling story.
