Here’s another Blog by a Mississauga Chiropractor….


Just watched The Adventures of Tintin (2011) starring, Jamie Bell (Billy Eliott), Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings) & Daniel Craig (Quantum of Solace)

Having bought a model ship, the Unicorn, for a pound off a market stall Tintin (Jamie Bell) is initially puzzled that the sinister Mr. Sakharine (Daniel Craig) should be so eager to buy it from him, resorting to murder and kidnapping Tintin – accompanied by his marvellous dog Snowy – to join him and his gang as they sail to Morocco on an old cargo ship.  Sakharine has bribed the crew to revolt against the ship’s master, drunken Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis), but Tintin, Snowy and Haddock escape, arriving inMorocco at the court of a sheikh, who also has a model of the Unicorn.  Haddock tells Tintin that over three hundred years earlier his ancestor Sir Francis Haddock was forced to scuttle the original Unicorn when attacked by a piratical forebear of Sakharine but he managed to save his treasure and provide clues to its location in three separate scrolls, all of which were secreted in models of the Unicorn.  Tintin and Sakharine have one each and the villain intends to use the glass-shattering top Cs of operatic soprano the Milanese Nightingale to secure the third. With aid from bumbling Interpol agents the Thompson (Simon Pegg) & Thomson (Nick Frost) Twins, Tintin, Snowy and Haddock must prevent Sakharine from obtaining all three scrolls to fulfil the prophesy that only the last of the Haddocks can discover the treasure’s whereabouts.

This was a great adventure movie.  The story is compelling and I was hooked from beginning to end.  The animation was one of the most beautiful & breathtaking than I`ve ever seen.  Tintin`s animated self looks stunning, Snowy is fluffier than ever and Captain Haddock is grumpier than ever.  Great job Spielberg!

I definitely recommend that you watch this film, whether you are a `Tintin fan`or not.  I would give this movie a strong 9/10 stars.  Definitely check it out… Happy Viewing!
