The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn (2011)

Director: Steven Spielberg
Genre: Animation
Cast: Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig
Plot: Tintin begins his adventure!

Spielberg does it again. Film is pure magic--each and every frame of movie is like turning the pages of comic book...Spielberg probably has some secret device with which he brought all the characters from comic-book to life and put them on screen!

He does take a few liberties for slight modifications from comic-book--like Tintin-Haddock introduction scene. However, this is only to extend the Tintin adventure beyond the Beyond, and I am definitely not complaining.

The show stealer for me was our brave little Snowy! Just watch out for his expressions and movements--perfection personified in animation.
This is also one of the most beautiful animation ever -- capturing tiniest of details of the breathtaking scenery, characters, objects, like never before.

Being a huge Tittin fan already, I found it a little too short! I hope there are sequels to follow and the adventure gets bigger and better.

Thank you Spielberg, Jackson, and all others involved for bringing this ever-young, legendary (and probably forgotten to current entertainment media) adventurer to this generation!

The picture explains what I mean by bringing comic-book to life!
