I know, insert Slowpoke meme here, but honestly I just watched the movie and I think it’s completely marvelous! Sure, the story is different from the original storyline (The Secret of the Unicorn) and Haddock is portrayed a bit differently (Although, I can understand why they’ve chosen to “mild” him up a bit – he’s a rowdy, roguish sailor in the comics and I can understand that it might not have gone very well in Hollywoodland) but everything’s made up for with the inserts of intertextual details, the rip-roaring, belly laughter inducing animated slapstick and the gorgeous animation and CGI.
I warmly recommend The Adventures of Tintin but I also recommend this:
In the end nothing beats the old animated series and the comic books. Ah, childhood nostalgia, what a wonderful thing.
