The opening credits are a real work of art here. It is unmistakeably similar to Spielberg's Catch Me If You Can right down to the flute-heavy John Williams score. This style seems like a perfect fit for Tintin and the added depth on stylized 2D animation is pretty cool, and this is something PIXAR has been doing as well.
The movie as a whole seems to lack a little something for me. It is hard to say just what it is. I guess this movie just isn't for everyone. Perhaps it is almost too much of a throwback for its own good. The movie seems a little out of place in today's world. Maybe that is more a state of how messed up today's world is than actually anything wrong with the movie. It is still refreshing in its own right, but also far from perfect.
Overall: 7.5 (out of 10)
