The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of The Unicorn – Review: Whoaaaaaaaa!!!

The Adventures of Tintin - Secret of the Unicorn

It all starts with the very first frame and keeps you at the edge of the seat till the very end. The only time you get to take a gasp of breath and relax is when the movie credits roll.  This is probably the best animation that you have seen off late! The sheer imagination that Stephen Spielberg has managed to wrap within an already established theme is definitely worth a standing ovation.

For those who expect a lot of subtle moments and soulful conversations, well, this movie might not be for you. But I would really suggest them to leave their adulthood behind and venture into this adventure ride. I bet you wont be disappointed.

You probably know that it’s an animation movie and might be hesitant about the realms of the journey, but when you enter this creation by Stephen Spielberg and Peter Jackson, you will experience an entirely different style of animation, which is more real than the real..!

The most pivotal aspect of a movie’s grip is its screenplay. Stephen Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have managed to come up with a screenplay that can get your heart pumped up like on a roller coaster ride. John Williams’ score is anyway top-notch just like any Spielberg / Peter Jackson movie.

If there’s someone who deserves a major portion of the applaud apart from Spielberg and Jackson, then its the deliciously crispy editing by Michael Kahn. The same guy who excelled in Spielberg movies like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan.

The most lovable character in the movie for me was Haddick played by Andi Serkis. Remember Gollum in Lord of the Rings? If yes then you should probably thank Serkis for that as well.

Tintin and Snowy are anyway a treat. Sakharin played by Daniel Craig is mysteriously evil as intended in the script. Thompson and Thompson are the two cherries on top!

All in all, a movie worth more than just one viewing. And yes, did I mention about the awesome 3D? One of the rare movies where 3D is just a factor and an avoidable character like loads of other scum coming our way. This has some awesome frames designed to enthrall you just in 3D, but if you’re watching it in 2D even then you are surely gonna enjoy anyway.

I am a nobody to rate a movie made with such passion and fun. 107 minutes is much too less for a movie as enjoyable as this! Go for it.
