Steven Spielberg’s THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN is a glorious, grand animated adventure the whole family can enjoy. Tintin is a young curious reporter who buys a model of the lost treasure ship called the “Unicorn.” A sinister man approaches Tintin, offering him an enormous sum for the ship. Tintin refuses, valuing the ship for its beauty, not its commercial value. Eventually, Tintin discovers that there are three model ships, all containing a hidden clue to the lost treasure. He and his dog, Snowy, team up with the drunken descendent of the Unicorn’s captain to retrieve the treasure. To find it, they have to contend with the descendent of the pirate who tried to steal the Unicorn’s treasure before it was lost at sea.
THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN is an exhilarating, family friendly roller coaster ride. The action is exciting. It’s laced with plenty of fun comedy. Best of all, TINTIN has a strong moral, redemptive worldview. Good conquers evil, light brings truth, and the villain goes off to jail instead of being killed. These themes are combined with a couple overt, positive Christian references, including one to “St. John the Evangelist.”
