Fans need no introduction, but for the sake of the uninitiated, Tintin is the star of the classic Tintin comic book series, penned by the Belgian artist Hergé in the 1930s. And fans shouldn’t be surprised that movie heavyweights Steven Spielberg and coproducer Peter Jackson decided to adapt the books using 3D and motion capture technology. Tintin (Jamie Bell), a teenage reporter, with the courage of Indiana Jones or Frodo Baggins, partners with Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) to fight off Red Rakham (Daniel Craig) in the search for sunken treasure. While purist Tintin fans might be disappointed, the movie is true to the series’ sense of rapid adventure and comic fun and offers an excellent family film. Rated PG; young viewers might find the action and violence to be too much. (Paramount)
