Film review: The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn
Share This Article:
I am absolutely sure that every British Person over the age of 16 knows who the legendary Tintin is, or they at least have a basic idea of the adventures he and his loyal companion Snowy embarked on. If not, then shame on you, your childhood was wasted. The character Tintin was created by George Remi under the alias Herge and soon became one of the most popular comic books in Europe, which led to two animated series (1958-1962, 1991-1992) and five feature films released between 1947 and 1972. Now Steven Speilberg has brought Herge’s classic character back to the big screen in the newly released CGI spectacular. The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn boasts a stellar cast consisting of Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot) Simon Pegg (Hot fuzz and Shawn of the dead) and Daniel Craig ( Quantum of solace and Casino Royale) and an impressive production team, with director Spielberg, producer Peter Jackson, and writer Edgar Wright.
