Our own Katey Rich gave The Adventures of Tintin four and a half stars, and called it "Steven Spielberg's most purely joyful film in at least a decade." Based on the beloved Belgian comic created by Herge, The Adventures of Tintin sees the titular young reporter swept up in adventure after he buys an old model ship that just happens to contain a clue to finding a long-lost treasure.

Then Spielberg said that he hopes to resume directing duties for part three, which excites me (as I loved The Secret of the Unicorn). I’m also amazed that Spielberg can line up roughly 17 projects in a row. We know he’s working on Lincoln with Daniel Day Lewis, and he’s moving on to the sci-fi thriller Robopocalypse after that. He’s always circling a fifth Indiana Jones movie. And he wants to do Tintin. Anything else, sir? Can you leave a few projects for the rest of us?

Adventures Of Tintin Review: Pure Spielberg Excitement At AFI Fest Adventures Of Tintin Review: Pure Spielberg Excitement At AFI Fest
Since the project’s inception, people have wondered if Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin will be able to find an American audience. While the comics by Herge, on which the film is based, are immensely popular overseas, they’ve never had much appeal in the United States. The truth, however, is that so long as people still love Spielberg-brand adventure films, Tintin shouldn’t have any issue.

One of the biggest box office curiosities remaining in the calendar year is Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. While the books by Herge, on which the film is based on, are huge overseas, the characters are still a huge question mark for American audiences.

But while Spielberg hadn't heard of Tintin, the fellow responsible for Tintin had definitely heard of Spielberg. Michael Farr, an expert on Tintin, says that the comic's creator, Hergé (a pen name of Belgian artist Georges Rémi), first discovered Spielberg's work with Duel, the 1971 TV movie about a hapless traveler who gets on the bad side of an insane truck driver.

To be completely honest, Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin wasn’t moving my needle. I’m not familiar with the timeless character, who is huge overseas, and the director’s last two stabs at high-concept adventure -- The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull -- didn’t live up to expectations.

Based on the long-running and internationally popular series of comic books by Belgian artist Georges Rémi (under the pen name of Hergé), the series follows a young Beglian reporter named Tintin. He's surrounded by a colorful cast of characters as he travels the globe having adventures and getting into scrapes. Sort of a less grizzled Indiana Jones set in a sillier world.

Director Robert Zemeckis has spent the last decade trying to find the potential in 100% performance-capture film. From The Polar Express to Beowulf to A Christmas Carol, Zemeckis has always run into one big obstacle: the uncanny valley. As hard as he tried, the human characters in his movies suffered from being dead behind the eyes and were hard to watch as a result.

The movie has yet to be all that heavily promoted over here, both thanks to the fact that Tintin-- a comic character drawn by Belgian artist Herge-- isn't as iconic in the United States as in Europe, and probably also because DreamWorks is still figuring out how to sell audiences
