Adventures of Tintin -
Unless you're a graphics whore, this isn't for anyone above 8 years old. With Spielberg directing I was expecting so much more out of this. Instead I got a silly cartoon of a movie that was full of neanderthal humor, and a 100% predicable from the beginning storyline.
It's obvious the producers threw a ridiculous amount of money at the look of the film. As impressive as the CG was, I didn't really even like it. It was TOO realistic. I wondered the whole time why they didn't just do this live action? Or better yet, make it a Saturday morning cartoon. Because that's sure as hell what it felt like. Very surprising.
I'm not saying it's a bad film. It's really hard to criticize the individual elements. But when I see Amblin, and I see Wingnut,, together, working on a film, I expect something special.
All show and no go.
p.s. What the hell kind of name is Tintin, anyway? So weird. And how old was he supposed to be? He looks like a kid, but acts like a twenty something. Odd.
