Huge fun for children of all ages!By Chrisaljack (307 reviews) from Hellingly , 27 Oct 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]Tin Tin is, above all, a frantic comic-book tale brilliantly brought to the screen! It is a comic-book James Bond without the titillation. Sometimes the action is so fast that a lot of it is missed in the mayhem (the escape from the palace down to the dock is a case in point!). I cannot wait to watch it again just so I can take in the detail without having to worry about missing any of the story. And, of course, the ending already tells us that a continuation must be in the pipeline....

Disappointing to an old fanBy a customer , 01 Nov 2012My boy really enjoyed this but as a childhood fan of Tin Tin myself I was really quite disappointed - the film had completely stripped Captain Haddock of all his personality.
Not as expectedBy ClaireLB (6 reviews) from Spalding , 27 Oct 2012Did not enjoy this film. I expect it would be great for children but as an adult I prefer the cartoons!
I was looking forward to this so much and felt disappointed.
Thoroughly enjoyable film but Tin Tin will always be an annoying little squirtBy JayLow (122 reviews) , 21 Oct 2012Tin Tin is a thoroughly enjoyable, high-paced, high quality family action film. There are those die-hard Tin Tin fans who will hate it, but then again they were going to do that any way. Don't listen to them it's a very good film.
The story, a mash-up of several Tin Tin originals put together by the much vaunted team of Edgar Wright, Stephen Moffat and Joe Cornish, isn't that special but it's servicable and lightweight and does the job. That job is largely to frame the stunning motion capture animation and the set piece action sequences. There's some technical wizardy on show here and the chase through the Moroccan town is a particluar highlight.
The characters and performances are, of course, excellent, but I do have one little gripe. It's the same gripe I had reading the comics and watching the original cartoons...it's that Tin Tin fella. He's a self-satified little squirt and no amount of motion capture and CGI can change that.
Tin tinBy a customer , 12 Oct 2012Not a bad film at all, me and my 4 yr old enjoyed. Not as good as original, looks great though.
Poor version of an iconBy a customer , 09 Oct 2012Disappointing version compared to the original, although very cleverly done. Tintin did not look much like Tintin although all the other characters looked how they should be. Snowy was the most authentic. Can see why this slipped under the radar after its cinema release. Ending left it wide open for a sequel - lets hope its better.
