This film is about a young man solving a mystery about a ship that sunk a long time ago and a descendant to the captain of that ship that is to inherit a treasure. The animation in this film is done in similar style to Polar Express. Not knowing anything about Tintin, I was a bit confused about his age. By his stature, he is young, but he lives by himself and is quite independent. I'm guessing he is somewhere in the range of teenager? I was a bit surprised to see guns used in this animated film. I think all of the cartoon guns I have seen in the past have been the silly ray gun type or the Elmer Fudd type. The plot moved a bit slow in this movie for me. If it moved slow for me, I'm not sure how well it would keep the attention of a younger audience.

This is terrible. Far from being heroic adventure stories, or even narratives, this collection is merely a series of odd events that take place in various lands mainly occupied by morons. There are no motivations, just a cast of presented stereotypes ranging from the corniest of "heart of gold" natives to nasty caricatures. Tin Tin himself is presented as a reporter, but doesn't seen to have any kind of actual occupation other than getting tied up over and over again. This is the kind of book that a well meaning relative who has no idea what to buy a child would give as a present. Because it's pretty. And the masses like it. ( )

In this book there are 3 stories about the adventures of Tintin. But there is a fun one about a singing lady and she gets robed by bad men. She is going to call Tintin to help her to find the robbers. But it is hard to get the robbers because they are really strong because each robber has 2 guns. But like always Tintin is better and he hides and then he sneaks in where he needs too. At the end Tintin finishes and he did it for free. ( )
