Tintin: Superb!

We took over 90% of the movie theater, our family plus twelve other families from the homeschool group, and were all delighted by a wonderful show! We discussed the movie over breakfast this morning, and our combined overall review--and being Tintin lovers we are very picky reviewers--was very, very favorable:

  • the film kept the atmosphere, feel of the Tintin stories
  • no politically-correct distortions
  • incredible attention to detail in every scene, we felt as if inside one of the books
  • the 3-D effect awesome!
  • the initial scene of Tintin being drawn by Herge' at the art fair won all of our hearts
  • the Catholic reference of St. John the Evangelist in the final scene was left intact (see original page of book here)
  • and many more...
