Product Description

Product Description

From Academy Award® -winning filmmakers Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson comes the epic adventures of Tintin. Racing to uncover the secrets of a sunken ship that may hold a vast fortune -- but also an ancient curse -- Tintin and his loyal dog Snowy embark on an action-packed journey around the world that critics are calling "fun for the whole family."* *ABC-TV (Chicago)

Parce qu’il achète la maquette d’un bateau appelé la Licorne, Tintin, un jeune reporter, se retrouve entraîné dans une fantastique aventure à la recherche d’un fabuleux secret. En enquêtant sur une énigme vieille de plusieurs siècles, il contrarie les plans d’Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine, un homme diabolique convaincu que Tintin a volé un trésor en rapport avec un pirate nommé Rackham le Rouge. Avec l’aide de Milou, son fidèle petit chien blanc, du capitaine Haddock, un vieux loup de mer au mauvais caractère, et de deux policiers maladroits, Dupond et Dupont, Tintin va parcourir la moitié de la planète, et essayer de se montrer plus malin et plus rapide que ses ennemis, tous lancés dans cette course au trésor à la recherche d’une épave engloutie qui semble receler la clé d’une immense fortune… et une redoutable malédiction. De la haute mer aux sables des déserts d’Afrique, Tintin et ses amis vont affronter mille obstacles, risquer leur vie, et prouver que quand on est prêt à prendre tous les risques, rien ne peut vous arrêter…

The Adventures of Tintin follows the exciting exploits of a young reporter, his dog, a sea captain with a drinking problem, and a couple of bumbling Interpol detectives as they travel from Europe to the Sahara and Morocco in pursuit of a pickpocket, model-ship collectors, and long-lost treasure. Steven Spielberg's and Peter Jackson's long-awaited full-length film, based on the original "Tintin" comics by Hergé, combines the stories "The Secret of the Unicorn," "Red Rackham's Treasure," and "The Crab with the Golden Claws" into a generally fast-paced adventure that feels just a tad too long. The individual stories and the characters Tintin, Snowy, Captain Haddock, and Thompson and Thomson are all quite faithfully represented. The motion-capture animation is similar to that of Polar Express and is both fascinating and a bit odd at times. As in the comics themselves, the characters are highly stylized and instantly recognizable, but Tintin's facial expression is eerily stoic and there's a hint of strangeness that's hard to put a finger on. Snowy is delightfully funny to watch, though he is a bit fluffier than in the original comics, and the real animation standouts are the secondary characters like Thompson and Thomson and Captain Haddock, who somehow seem absolutely perfect. Devoted fans will revel in the abundance of small details that reference the comics and suggest a true love for "Tintin" on the filmmakers' parts, but even viewers who don't know a thing about the comics will thoroughly enjoy this exciting adventure.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
VIDEO:

The Adventures Of Tintin arrives at blu ray with AVC MPEG-4 1080p 2.35:1 encode. This is a beautiful and colourful film. Daytime exteriors - ranging from Parisian markets to planes taking off over green oceans to infinite sand dunes to seaside villages - look exquisite. Colours and textures pop, with the imagery constantly flirting between highly detailed computer animation and photo-realism. Nighttime sequences are equally strong, held tight by rich, exemplary black levels and glistening reflections. (4.5/5)

AUDIO:

This DTS HD Master Audio 7.1 lossless track is the only way to enjoy the modern action movie, with tremendous dynamic range. Dialogue is clearly defined. As a 7.1 experience, bullets ping and swirl in all channels, and the sound design really pulls you forward into the world by placing a number of nice effects, such as the airplane propeller, directly behind your ears. In my 9 Wilson Audio WATT/Puppies speakers home theatre system, this 7.1 track really immerses the audience in the midst of the action. (5/5)

TRIVIA AND GOOFS:

This picture was nominated for Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Score by John Williams, but lost to Ludovic Bource's The Artist. Personally, I was hoping that Hugo would win.

It has an estimated budge of $130 million, but worldwide gross so far is $369 million!

This is the first animated film directed by Steven Spielberg.

Originally, Steven Spielberg was going to do a live-action adaptation of Tintin, and called Peter Jackson to ask if his VFX company Weta Digital would work on the film, in particular creating a CGI Snowy.

I can’t tell you why my seven year old son watches this movie once a month every month for the last two years or so but I can tell you that I’ve been forced to do so with him at least a dozen times and I don’t find it painful. The movie is a brilliant combination of animation and real life, Steven Spielberg did something new and different here, the story is a combination of three Tintin books and it makes for constant excitement and none stop action. Our only complaint, where is the sequel? There were suppose to be three of these – I would have loved to see the next two, if nothing else – my son would add them to the monthly rotation which would be welcomed. Great movie!

Format: DVD
The world of animation has made enormous leaps and bounds in the last several decades with such epic productions as the "The Lion Tamer", "Avatar", and "Lord of the Rings". The secret of success has to be the advances the industry has made in such digital techniques as facial modelling, blue screening and key framing. This year's seminal production, according to the Academy, is another masterpiece of high artistic quality called "Tintin", a digital animation interpretation of Belgium cartoonist Herge's series covering the life of a young crime reporter in search of another adventure. The story is true to the original cartoon both in excellent type casting and voice-over for the main characters; people like the scrupulous and resourceful Tintin, the ever-crapulous Captain Haddock and the less-than-dangerous detective duo of Thomson and Thomson hot in pursuit of pick-pockets seem to contain a life-like verve as they plunge headlong into a world full of danger, unending intrigue and moments of humorous folly. I felt at home with this version of events; it effectively allowed me to feel like I was really in the middle of a speeded-up, come-to-life rendition of an old comic legend, and isn't that what good animation is all about. All or most of the detail is clear, the storyline is easy to follow, and the imagination is fully engaged as to all the spills and thrills that are about to take place.
