The Adventures of Tintin Movie Synopsis

Intrepid young reporter Tintin (Jamie Bell) and his loyal dog Snowy are thrust into a world of high adventure when they discover a ship carrying an explosive secret.

As Tintin is drawn into a centuries-old mystery, Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine (Daniel Craig) suspects him of stealing a priceless treasure. Tintin and Snowy, with the help of salty, cantankerous Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis), and bumbling detectives Thompson & Thomson, travel half the world, one step ahead of their enemies as Tintin endeavors to find The Unicorn, a sunken ship that may hold a vast fortune, but also an ancient curse.

Based on the series of books "The Adventures of Tintin" by Hergé.

  i am not a fan of animation movies for the most part but i liked this one. i like the characters and the actor's voices were great. (someone give andy serkis an academy award for goodness sake, he deserves one!) why did they have to change the dog's name to snowy? that wasn't necessary. there were parts where it dragged a bit or became redundant but overall it is worthwhile to see. i'd like to see the next one but hopefully it won't have a drunk as a main character.

  good fun for the entire family.

  fun film, but not for kids. animation was stunning, even on teh small screen.
