Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Finally, Steven Spielberg has returned! After a massive misstep with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull he has returned with the incredibly fun The Adventures of Tintin. Tintin is a blast to watch, full of action and adventure. It’s a globetrotting film that starts in one place and ends in the next, always keeping you invested in the characters and where they’ll end up. It’s not groundbreaking or revolutionary in terms of the story it’s telling, but it’s a return to true form for director Steven Spielberg and it’s one that can be thoroughly enjoyed by both children and adults."
