The Adventures of Tin Tin was the first animated film directed by Steven Spielberg.
“The Adventures of Tin Tin” started out as a comic series that was created in 1929 by Belgian artist Hergé. Tin Tin’s first appearance was in a Belgian newspaper and it was fully in French. Since then, it became the most popular European comic in the 20th century and it has been translated into more than 50 languages and has sold more than 200 million copies. Tin Tin received so much attention it caught the eyes of Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg, who decided to turn the comic series into an animated movie. “The Adventures of Tin Tin” follows a young Belgian journalist named Tin Tin and his dog, Snowy, as they are thrown into a world of mystery and chaos after buying a model ship that was previously owned by a famous explorer named Sir Francis.
Up until the release of this movie, I have not even heard of Tin Tin or his numerous adventures. However, living in
They also included a lot of extras and it was an overall great story. They included a behind the scenes featurette, a history of Tin Tin, a short film about Snowy, and loads of other bonus material. All the extras were perfect for both long time fans of the series and newbies, like me, that are hearing about Tin Tin for the first time. The story was well written and full of suspense and action from the beginning to end. They also included several comedic moments that were tasteful and fit perfectly into the actual plot. I had a great time watching “The Adventures of Tin Tin” and am highly recommending you watch it, no matter what your age may be. For those reasons, I am giving this movie an A.
