Technical Analysis

Steven Spielberg is back to form. Speilberg one of world's most influential helmer takes an old fashioned but guaranteed thrills shift from Jones to the Belgium teenage cult European, American reporter from the popular comic series 'TinTin'.

Announcing the return of Speilberg into his most successful forte adventure 'TinTin' washes the stains of disappointment left by the 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' marvelously with the support of Peter Jackson and his Weta Studio who give us this interestingly unique combo of 3D and motion-capture. The team works wonderfully on the technology to give us breathtaking action scenes which come at the right time to avoid any yawn plus the flirting with the actors features via motion capture tech where artistes make their presence felt in this 3D animated world. Superb.

Peter Jackson highly impressive CGI twins with Steven Speilberg's swashbuckling narration according to the script smarts by Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish force TinTin to register on the laps of the kids whereas the adults store it in their minds.

Right from the start when snowy starts showing his heroics to us we understand why this comic adaptation was planned. The action scenes are thoroughly enjoyable but the best part comes during the climax in the Moroccan city.

Pixar loyalist might not find the emotional connect to that level in 'TinTin' which is true. But the 3D and motion capture experiment generates immense curiosity among comic book followers as they wonder what will happen to Asterix if they show up in the same way as 'Tin Tin' did over here.

The Story

The movie, adapted from three of Herge's original stories, follows Tintin (played by Jamie Bell, who starred in the movie "Billy Elliot") as he joins forces with Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis), a whisky-soaked seaman who becomes his friend and ally, in a race against nefarious Ivan Sakharine (Daniel Craig) to pirate treasure and the secret of a lost galleon, the Unicorn.

Business Analysis

Spielberg's Tintin opened to $56.1 million in 19 territories and till date has reached $123.4 million. Today the movie eyes its biggest reader base in Asia - India followed by Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.

Speilberg return to adventure is old fashioned but designed to run and run as its satisfies the family auds with its balance dosage of action and wits.

Tintin is likely to attract its Asian followers and the positive word of mouth will attract more legs from the family in the movie's Asian outing. Seems to be a win win situation for the pay masters.
