Cert: PG Runtime: 107 mins Director: Steven Spielberg Cast: Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Nick Frost and Simon Pegg
Tintin was a favourite of my childhood reading, Steven Spielberg has been planning this film even before I was born. Now in 2011 we can finally enjoy what could bring a lot of childhood memories flooding back.Having bought a model ship,the Unicorn,for a pound off a market stall Tintin (Jamie Bell) is initially puzzled that the sinister Mr. Sakharine (Daniel Craig) should be so eager to buy it from him,resorting to murder and kidnapping Tintin – accompanied by his marvellous dog Snowy – to join him and his gang as they sail to Morocco on an old cargo ship. Sakharine has bribed the crew to revolt against the ship’s master,drunken Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis),but Tintin,Snowy and Haddock escape,arriving in Morocco at the court of a sheikh,who also has a model of the Unicorn. Haddock tells Tintin that over three hundred years earlier his ancestor Sir Francis Haddock was forced to scuttle the original Unicorn when attacked by a piratical forebear of Sakharine but he managed to save his treasure and provide clues to its location in three separate scrolls,all of which were secreted in models of the Unicorn. Tintin and Sakharine have one each and the villain intends to use the glass-shattering top Cs of operatic soprano the Milanese Nightingale to secure the third. With aid from bumbling Interpol agents the Thompson Twins (Nick Frost & Simon Pegg) our boy hero,his dog and the captain must prevent Sakharine from obtaining all three scrolls to fulfil the prophesy that only the last of the Haddocks can discover the treasure’s whereabouts.
In general, the production of “Tintin” alludes to one simple truth: Be in love the fact that he takes over. If you can not – do not pull at all. After these excellent titles appear character. Then, second, third, and others. And together with them in the viewer’s head slips inevitable thought that he watches the story where it extends everywhere terribly pleasant, warm feeling of reverent attitude. Spielberg and Jackson seemed to hold in his hands a miniature teddy Tintin, and say, “my darling you, you are very dear to me, and I will remove your story worthy material.” Absolutely healthy sentimentalism outstanding people.Knowing, like any other spectator, Spielberg never imagined that he could be such a virtuoso. Prohibitive ease, despite the tremendous excess of saturation of the plot, and attention to all of its many parts in any of the episodes. As soon as the protagonist goes further and further into his investigation, Spielberg gradually more and more pressure on the gas pedal. One hundred and seven minutes to rapidly and consistently growing material, which completely faithful to the original source. Active adaptation to the original concept of the comic book is included in the first minutes, without showing any mercy to the audience confidently shooting his own power head.Without even the slightest hint at a weak point. Uniform attention to all stages of production shows itself in all its glory, when the taste and color work appears in every way as devoid of attacks, as well as differences. No one pulls the blanket over himself.
Andy Serkis is high time to give that a Oscar, for such an outstanding job on their heroes in the mo-cap. Need more detail feel the subtleties of this technology in order to understand the extent to which the operator is masterpiece Janusz Kaminski as full a picture happy chaos, perhaps, even a child will notice. It’s hard not to pay attention to scenes that are removed by a single plan, despite the fact that in one scene the hero of more than ten times the change in location of the local scale, and, incidentally, is not he alone. In other words, each more than five hundred times catch the question, “well, that my friend, do not ever figure out how we managed to remove it?” This is primarily Spielberg stormed the adult audience. The all-new level of animation, which is achieved by getting rid of the known problems of motion capture technology of the past. A release is going brilliantly and simply, Spielberg holds the highest bar for directing a massive amount of detail frame. It should be noted that in the past that no one has yet succeeded.Not for nothing is actively publicized the names of the writers that are very well managed approach to adapting the source material. Originality extends to absolutely everything, every time changing its color, presented in the form of humor, in the form of interior parts, or separate dramatic characters, and so on. Perhaps somewhat lost because of his age cult composer John Williams. He manages to keep the bar full, but no more. If earlier it was possible to look over the projects he has worked to close my eyes and still feel full majesty only with your ears, here we can hardly see a similar picture. As a small minus someone may also take into account the lack of female characters, unless you count the fleeting appearance of a opera singer.”The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn” will amaze children of its history, and adults – an approach to it. An exciting and large-scale, original and fresh, colorful, funny and warm movie adventure, as a symbol of exquisite masterpiece of modern animatio. 8.2/10
