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!

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.

Many Tintin purists will disagree, but I just happened to love Spielberg's CGI rendition of the Hergé characters. You know the characters and so they behave like such... Tintin is speaking to himself, or to Snowy, Haddock drinks his way out of regret, Dupond and Dupont are comic relief at their best...

The story picks two or three Tintin comics and make them into a cohesive storyline. Fast-paced, Spielberg's direction is agitated, humorous, alive and very precise. Actors are giving wonderfully adequate and solid performances.

This is an adventure story. And so, the story may lack in the depth department, but that doesn't mean it makes the movie any less good. In fact, the depth comes from the love you may have for the characters, and that alone makes it worthwhile. Spielberg and company were VERY faithful to Hergé's designs, adding many CGI textures through motion capture, rendering and such, to create a believable flesh and blood Tintin... and the very first character you see a close-up of in the movie happens to be Hergé himself, resurrected as an homage to the artist, doing a portrait of Tintin, in his own style... the movie knows where it's going and where its inspiration comes from, and so with this homage, the movie begins.

Special features run almost for 90 minutes where you get to explore the many facets of making a motion capture movie. It could have been handled with a few deleted scenes, goofs, interviews, trailers, but Spielberg seems less and less fond of special features as his more recent movies suggest (Lincoln has less than 70 minutes of special features for a 4-disc edition).
