The Adventures of TinTin (2011)
2.5/3 stars out of 5
I could definitely see the hand of Spielberg in the production and direction of this film. I did not realize, however, that the story was based upon a comic strip. John Williams composed the score, even though I could almost hear themes from many of his other more famous film scores, echoing and ricocheting throughout the film.
While I enjoyed watching the film, I just wasn’t wowed by it. In fact, both Terry and I fell asleep the first time we attempted it. We tried again on the following day, and I made it to the finish, but Terry nodded off a couple of times again. All the action and adventure probably would have had more impact in a non-animated production for me. If you’re going to use guns and other lethal weapons, I guess I prefer live-action (or CGI-enhanced live-action) to the purely animated medium.
