The Adventures of Tintin

The Adventures Of Tintin is the first ‘performance capture’ movie that doesn’t look like it’s populated by wall-eyed zombies. The ripping adventure introduces Belgian cartoonist Hergé’s boy journalist (voiced by Jamie Bell), his faithful terrier, Snowy, and the boozy but noble Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) to a new generation. They’re solving a mystery involving model ships, a shady man (Daniel Craig) and pirate gold, among other things, but really it’s just an excuse for Spielberg to craft a series of amazingly ambitious action sequences, one of which is as complex as the great truck chase in Raiders Of The Lost Ark. Without the restrictions of a physical shoot, the ‘camera’ can spin above, below and all around the chase as it plays out, with John Williams’s rousing score and some impressive effects adding extra punch. It’s thrilling and, incidentally, a much more satisfying follow-up to Spielberg’s original Indiana Jones trilogy than that thing with the crystal skulls.
