The movie’s 3d adaptation proves that technology can provide great results when done right.
Adventures of Tin Tin: The Secret of The Unicorn mixes good old-fashioned storytelling with swashbuckling pirate action and tireless chase scenes. The wholesome charm of the comics was translated well into the big screen. Captain Haddock provided much of the laughs.
As the movie progresses though, Tin Tin proves to be an uninteresting lead. He serves nothing more than the character who keeps the audience up to date on what’s going on and introduces the next plot point.
While the effects are great for the action pieces not much is paid attention to the human details of the characters. It’s quite ironic that the state of the art animation technology cannot deliver the simple and expressive drawings that Hergé’s mere ink and pen can.
Overall, it’s still an enjoyable action movie and manages to pull off what it sets out to do with an exhilarating romp.
Adventures of Tin Tin: The Secret of The Unicorn
Adventures of Tin Tin: The Secret of The Unicorn is a straight-up action-adventure flick that's thoroughly enjoyable but limited by its own technical feat.
