I finally managed to catch the 3d version of Adventures of Tintin, and I must say “What an experience!!” As one of the million who belong to a generation who have grown up on Tintin, this movie was the best thing that ever happened. Spielberg is certainly a master of his trade. The pages of the comics suddenly came alive. The histrionics of snowy was extremely amusing. Haddock simply, took the cake with his droopy eyes and the screaming insults (who does not remember “Blistering Barnacles“), and it came rushing back as to why I loved him so much.
The chase to recover the scrolls was so well executed that it left you on the edge of the seat, madly clutching your stomach, eyes popping open in wonder. I think I must have looked as much a comic site watching the movie as the film itself.
As a professional graphic artist, I could not ignore the humongous scale and the technical perfection which went in creating the movie. You could see the hair on the arms of Tintin, and the sand storm turning to a water storm was something which needs to be see to be believed.
Though the movie was interrupted 4 time because of a technical error at PVR Cinemas, and we as the audience were screaming in frustration, I could not find it in my heart to remain mad at them, as the experience itself was so brilliant.
As a kid I have devoured ALL the Tintin comics, and now I am sure I am going to do the same with every movie which is released.
