Bone-idle writes "This was always going to be a tricky one. The comics that chronicle the Adventures of Tintin were written by Belgian author Hergè from the 1930s up until the 1970s. Even today, they continue to enjoy worldwide fame as critically acclaimed pieces of literature. Making a high budget film adaptation was a dangerous task, because it needed to be faithful to its source material in order to appease the fans, but also had to be accessible enough so as not to alienate those who had never read the books before. Luckily, with master of cinema, Steven Spielberg, behind the helm, Tintin is a positively electrical adventure, that offers constant nods to it’s fan base."
