Adventure, Animated
Steven Spielberg and Hergé’s crime-fighting juvenile comic-book character Tintin were made for each other. From the inventive title sequence to actor Andy Serkis’ ravings as eccentric/lovable windbag Captain Haddock to Tintin’s spectacular Spielbergian aerial exploits in the Arab town to the wonderful “dueling cranes” sequence, this smashing motion-capture-animated tribute to the youthful Belgian detective (voice of Jamie Bell) and his dog Snowy not only captures the essence of Tintin’s appeal but also the essence of what we know as the Spielberg artistic mandate. Tintin is a good-natured, fair-minded, inquisitive, resourceful, gadget-crazy young man – without a single sexual thought, or any relatives, or much of a job – who dedicates his time to solving mysteries and setting things right all over the globe. That’s Spielberg, in a nutshell. If he’s smart, the director will never, ever attempt a sequel to this yarn about the search for a sunken treasure. Leave it alone, it’s as close to perfection as Spielberg will ever again achieve. Screenplay adaptation by Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright, and Joe Cornish. Also with the voices of Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Cary Elwes, Toby Jones, Nick Frost, and Gad Elmaleh. (107 min.)
