What the fuck is this? A fair haired young Rick Astley with a small white dog using animation that was done better a decade ago? Is this a joke?
No it’s called intelligent filmmaking from a top director working on legendary material…go watch Twilight instead…should be right up your alley
I read every Tintin book as a child, and i’ve never seen a twilight movie…this just looks sucky and if you don’t know the books, or even if you do, i just dont know why you’d want to see this outside of SS or PJ (granted, thats a big aside, but without those two NO ONE makes or sees this…no one).
I’d love for this to be a good film, but the trailer is god awful. Have you seen the movie Ron? Is it good…tell me something besides using the adjectives intelligent, top and legendary…
This film is awesome. I’m a huge Tintin fanatic, and like many others was highly sceptical. I slouched into the London theatre armed with 3D glasses and doubt. Left with all those doubts swept away.
I’m neither a huge Spielberg fan or Jackson, but my God they knocked this one out of the park. I used to hate 3D – no more. Best use of it I’ve seen and hats off especially for making Haddock a full blown booze hound. Brave indeed.
And before anyone claims that I’m a studio monkey typing this, I’m not. I’m a cynical 36 year old that had one of the best movie going experiences in a long time. Go see it.
This sounds like it was written by the PR people working for this film. I say that because of how it has been worded, it’s trying too hard to sound like the public.
It reminds of the old days in 1920′s, when politicians would hire a woman’s rights activist to out and say, “I hate politics, I hate men, they are all corrupt and etc, etc… but this candidate has really stood out for me, I thought he was like the rest, but now I see how wrong I was. He is different, he is exactly what we need.”
I enjoyed it a lot too, and I’m not a TinTin fan anyway.
But it’s a very solid family flick that I think will play well over the holidays once word spreads.
The CGI is excellent and even the eyes are not the problem they have been in other Mo-Cap films, even if it’s not flawless either.
I’m glad I’ve seen it – means I can ignore the haters.
Can I be the first to say that this looks HORRIBLE. The CGI is the worst ever for the look of humans.
Look guys — CGI is great for cartoon characters. It’s terrible for recreating human characters.
This one is going down in flames — not to mention that most of America will think this is about a dog named Rin Tin Tin and be bitterly disappointed.
Just go back to the hole you crawled out of and watch The Smurfs or Transformers on DVD for the 10th time will you…what’s the matter, this not too dumbed down for you…Americans!
The CG is stylised – it’s supposed to look like a hybrid of the books and the animated series, not to be an “Avatar”-style effort to create photo-realism.
And your Rin Tin Tin comment is so asinine as to barely deserve a response – I doubt that Americans are as dim-witted as you like to believe they are.
This is a fun, audience-pleasing adventure and should be seen as such.
Agreed. This will bomb in America.
Well then I guess it’s a good thing Tin Tin IS a cartoon character.
I don’t listen to Americans when it comes to Tintin.
Couldn’t have said it better myself!!!! Americans! TinTin is not only 5-star material but Spielberg hit the bullseye with this truly satisfying homage to Herge’s genius…
ron. you’d hate anywhere you live wouldnt you?
This looks like it would have been great as a live action movie. Creepy CGI humans are unappealing.
THIS LOOKS TREMENDOUS.
Why didn’t they just ANIMATE it instead?
I was sceptical (partly due to my conservative don’t mess with Tintin position) but wanted to see what Spielberg would get out of using 3D. I can honestly say I haven’t had such a ride since I saw Raiders of the lost Ark for the first time back in the 80´s. The pacing, the smooth matchshot transitions, the almost chaotic nervewrecking, near-misses action sequences. Just classic Spielberg at his best. And as for the animation, i agree this trailer looks dubious, but it’s so well done in actuality with great respect to the original graphics. And Haddock has the warmest most endearing eyes I’ve ever seen on screen. Weird actually…
Next stop, uncanny valley!
It looks fun and exciting. Tintin is a great series and it seems to be in good hands.
I saw this in Los Angeles.
Technically, it’s great.
But I didn’t care about anybody.
It has the Pixar pace but not the Pixar heart.
A total technical exercise (well done, but still an exercise).
Hugo is better.
TV “trailer”. That would be a TV commercial.
I saw it. It’s just endless unnecessary camera movement, starring horrible uncanny valley looking characters without a single emotion, the story is pointless and had no regards to the original material.
A lot of people will see it because of Spielberg and Jackson names and that’s it.
I clicked on the tag “Stephen Spielberg” and there was nothing else there, so he can’t be that great a director.
I wonder how long it will take them to fix that.
Having attended a screening of this already, I will say this right now: this film will IMPLODE and be the biggest bomb of the holidays. It’s boring, horribly written, and plays like a terrible videogame. We expect more from Spielberg and Jackson…both have failed miserably.
