As someone who quite enjoys animated movies and doesn't mind a comic book here or there but hasn't read any Tintin material, I found this movie a bit polarizing. Let's start with the positive - and there is a lot of positive: the voice talent is incredible and well-acted, the sound engineering was top-notch while not overwhelming, and the visual coupled with CGI and set design has to be some of the most brilliant work I have seen with such an "animated" feature. However, and this where I may defer from those who have read the comics, the story itself was hollow and did not seem to be engaging or developing enough to both care for the protagonists or care for where the story may lead. I won't depict the plot as being "bare-bones" as other reviews have belittled it, but any depth that the plot seemingly had developed was irradiated by jumping too quickly from sequence to sequence and ultimately also stunted any substance in character development. Don't get me wrong; I found each character just distinguishable and unique enough to give them a shot and while I don't expect the world in such development in a feature aimed at a younger audience, I did expect to at least be mildly warmed by their presence which was subsequently lacking. Again, this may be the world of Tintin that the comics display that I am oblivious to, but outside of the absolute visual and audio splendors, this Spielberg film left a little to be desired.
