The Collider: The Adventures Of Tintin Blu-ray Review

The Collider:
When The Adventures of Tintin came to America, there was a sense that it was almost an obligatory release. Even though it came from director Steven Spielberg and producer Peter Jackson – and from writers Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish – Herge’s Tintin has long been an international phenomenon that never made much of an impression on Americans. The film did okay in a busy season, but it feels like that should be way more celebrated. Tintin is Spielberg doing Indiana Jones in a way he never could before, and in doing so makes Crystal Skull look that much worse. This is Spielberg – one of the finest action directors in cinema history – unbridled. This is Spielberg not having to worry about cranes, or stuntman’s lives, or even editing. And for that The Adventures of Tintin is massively entertaining. Starring Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, Tintin is one of 2011’s most undervalued movies, and our review of the Blu-ray follows after the jump.

I bought my copy but I haven't had a chance to see it yet. Hope to soon...can't wait.

It's good to be powerful in hollywood. This movie features multiple scenes of characters drinking and smoking, in one scene there is a man gunned down to death. Maybe it got a pass for being animated, but the PG rating seems a little gracious. Still, it was decent. Not exactly my thing but entertaining throughout.

That's interesting to hear...I had no idea that it had all that happening in it because it was PG. I'm really curious now.
