More censored than it's current PG rating? or is that adequate when compared to, say, the gunplay, drinking, violence and horror in Raiders of the Lost Ark? Is it the government's job to exercise censorship upon material viewed by children, or can their parents manage it you berk?

It is good though for what it is. What I was most impressed with actually was how the film lent it's weight into the character of Haddock. The movie comes a live a lot more when he's introduced onscreen and is much more fun onwards.

The telling of his ancestor's past and how Haddock has to sober and man up to deal with his own challenges is the best element of the film, and does save it from being just a wizz bang action extravaganza as it becomes a more personal film than I had expected, and a damn lot funnier too. Of course it utilizes TinTin more when he has to kick Haddock up the arse and later on, vice versa, making TinTin's role in this more internal and not just a guy who runs, punches and jumps just to push the action.

But it is good. I see why Spielberg decided to film this as animation rather than live action as he does go crazy with his ideas and is having so much fun with his action scenes that just feels more OTT than other animated stuff, and also with his camera flying in and out of all the 3D wildness, it's as if he is saying THIS is how you make a film in these genres.

Considering the government and parents out there already secretly would rejoice in the pleasures of alcoholism I think your question in point is null and void and is one that refuses to be honestly answered. Why I even refused a date with a girl who told me that she indulged in mushroom drinking and debauchery the stupid gentleman, and if the above is the world that will continue then this isn't a world in which I want my children to grow up in. As the testamants say, "when the old one isn't working, just a .... little bit out west".

You, the zone and future of the movie watching world are the guns and jury, and the first witnesses to bring a conviction against TinTin for the conspiracy to encourage underage drinking among children.

It's up to you...

What are you going to do Kirks, when they come for you in the dead of night and cuff your wrists and place that black bag over your head - how are you going to face them? with your hands on your head or on the trigger of a gun? You offer up your liberty so easily it's like you don't value it at all - 'oh please spare us! somebody think of the children!' - you make me sick! Man up man-child, it just may be time to die and you're worried about what some 12 year old in the suburbs might think when he sees a cartoon character enjoying an imaginary drink of alcohol? You are lost, my Son, lost and rudderless in the desert like a horse with no name...

It's the order. First you kill the animals, then you have the underage sex, then you drink until everybody (especially the underage kids) forget about all of it.

You can't drink first. Because then you have to have the underage sex while hung over, and that's no fun. And killing animals while hung over just makes you puke.

From Collider:
Kathleen Kennedy Talks JURASSIC PARK 4, a 3D Re-Release for JURASSIC PARK, and TINTIN Sequel; Says TINTIN 2 Could Be Ready By Christmas 2014
Adam Chitwood wrote:While it doesn’t open in the U.S. until Christmas, The Adventures of Tintin has already been doing great business internationally. Spielberg and producer Peter Jackson have made it no secret that they plan to make multiple entries in the franchise, with Jackson primed to direct the sequel. Since he’s obviously very busy with The Hobbit for the next two years, Steve asked if work on a sequel was already underway:
“Oh yeah it is being moved forward, in fact Steven and I were talking about it this morning. We’re working on a script right now, we’ll see a script probably February or March. If we can do some camera capture this summer, which I think we could do, then we would be on track to have the movie either Christmas 2014 or summer 2015, and so that’s what we’re looking at right now.”

Nuts to Kirks, I liked Tintin! It felt like a giant episode, guest-directed by Steven Spielberg. It was light and fluffy, but in this case I think that's what they were going for. And THIS is how mocap is supposed to be used. Some of the craziest action sequences I've ever seen.

Fair word of warning to the American audience who might not be familiar with the character, the movie just takes off right away, so before you have time to say "Wait, who the fuck is this kid with the floppy red hair?" there've already been two shoot-outs and a chase. You just have to be willing to go along for the ride.

From The Playlist:
Producer Kathleen Kennedy Says 'The Calculus Affair' Eyed For 'Tintin' Sequel; 'Prisoners Of The Sun' Won't Be Used For Third Movie
Jen Vineyard wrote:Even before "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" hit theaters, the filmmakers were planning not one but two sequels -- commissioning writer Anthony Horowitz for at least one of them, which Peter Jackson would direct. The next installments was long thought to be "Prisoners of the Sun," but producer Kathleen Kennedy told The Playlist that they have different stories in mind now for the second film, including one that Peter Jackson had previously said he's a fan of. Moreover, it seems "Prisoners Of The Sun," rumored to be the third movie instead of the second, may not factor it at all.

"'Prisoners of the Sun' was a very, very early discussion, and it isn't under discussion anymore," she said. "We've still got Anthony Horowitz working on the second movie, and we don't know what we're doing with the third movie yet."

The first film incorporates several Tintin stories -- "Secret of the Unicorn," "Red Rackham's Treasure," and "The Crab with the Golden Claws" -- which established the main characters. "We knew that we needed to introduce Tintin, we needed to introduce the relationship with Haddock, we knew [the dog] Snowy was going to be in it," Kennedy said, "so now what we're thinking [for the second film] is what new characters do we want to introduce? Well, we'll probably introduce Calculus and bring him into the fold."

As in Professor Calculus, who was introduced in "Red Rackham's Treasure" as far as the original stories are concerned, but didn't appear in the film. Calculus is a romantic, hearing-impaired scientist who invents a mini submarine as well as a rocket that can go to the moon. He also drives Haddock crazy when he uses unscientific methods that end up working. Since the main story of "Red Rackham's Treasure" is already featured in the first film, one of the other stories to look to that features him heavily is "The Calculus Affair," in which the eccentric inventor is kidnapped.

"We haven't decided yet," Kennedy cautioned about the story, "but that's the direction we're headed."

Although part of "The Secret of the Unicorn" incorporates "The Crab with the Golden Claws," the story's drug smuggling aspect was not included -- but that doesn't mean it won't reappear in future installments, even if the films aim to be family-friendly. "The beauty of what Hergé did is that it is slightly out-of-the-box thinking, you know?" Kennedy said. "Everything we do nowadays is so PC that it's kind of interesting to confront the choices he made, and decide, 'OK, are we going to make the same interpretation? Or are we not going to do it because we think, Oh, maybe that shouldn't be a storyline we should follow?' We're kind of inclined to just stick with what Hergé was doing, and give it a bit of a modern interpretation."

Once the story for the second film is determined, Jackson is still on board to direct, in between some of his "The Hobbit" duties. As for the the third film, that one remains undetermined as of yet.

"It's tricky getting everybody," Kennedy said, "but that's how we did the first movie, sort of passing the baton. When Steven [Spielberg] was available, he'd jump in, and when he was busy, Peter would pick up the slack. It was kind of amazing how they'd work together. We never knew how this would work, but it worked out really, really well."

So I saw this and based on my childhood memories of Tintin, I feel it is a perfect adaptation of the source material. As a movie it's fairly entertaining. The humour is all pretty good and the action is handled with a nice light tone that frequently goes into slapstick territory. Like in the books, it's not really meant to stick with you. Everything is nice and light because Tintin is a good-hearted upbeat one dimensional character who is never given a backstory or personal motivations. He's an absolute character who is built to go out on endless adventures because none of them are ever much more important or personal than others and he never developes or changes.

There are lots of references in there for people who know the source material, and most of the more recognizable characters get squeezed into this film (the most notable absence being Professor Tournasole, although he is referenced).

Spielberg does a way better job with a lot of these sequences than what he did in INDY 4 and the big motorcycle chase is one scene I would love to watch again. The animation and camerawork is really good and fluid. I saw this in 3D, but didn't really notice anything that was really enhanced by the 3D. The film mostly takes place during bright days, so the dimming effect of the 3D glasses didn't make the film too gloomy to see what was going on.

So overall, this is nice light fun in keeping with the characters and his adventures. I think kids will like it. The kids I took did. I had fun and will see any sequels they want to make.

Steven Spielberg plans film based on Indo-Pak border
Vikas Singh & Srijana Mitra Das wrote:'Next Tintin by 2015-end'

It's something all Tintin fans desperately want to know. So, we put the question to Spielberg—when is the sequel out? "Peter Jackson is directing the next one, I'm producing. We have a script and we're going to start performance capture probably at the end of this year.

"Don't hold me to it, but we're hoping the film will come out around Christmas-time in 2015. We know which books we're making, we can't share that now but we're combining two books which were always intended to be combined by Herge." Smiling impishly, refused to confirm or deny the guesses we hazarded but when specifically asked about 'The Blue Lotus', said it would probably be the third Tintin film.

Watched this again tonight with a friend who's a big TinTin fan. The more time goes by the more I think this is a criminally underrated movie. It's not a masterpiece or anything, but it's thoroughly entertaining and got completely overlooked. And for those who keep track of Andy Serkis and his performance capture career, "Captain Haddock" is another great performance.
