Welcome ‘Tintin’ to Your Home on DVD

AdventuresOfTintin_DVD.jpgParamount Pictures now offers you on DVD and Blu-ray last year’s theatrical hit The Adventures of Tintin. Racking up an impressive list of award nominations, including an Oscar for the music, the film took home the International Animated Film Association’s Annie Award for Animated Effects in an Animated Production. The characters, although animation, look mroe like real people than cartoon. In fact, 12-year-old KIDS FIRST! youth film critic Brianna Beaton says, “I almost forget that I am watching an animated film, and several times I get lost in the moment and think it’s real life.” It’s an appreciation fellow KIDS FIRST! youth film critic Blake Hawes (age 15) shares in his review, too (which can also be seen on video).

This is a great animated film! I absolutely love it. The Adventures of Tintin has lots of action and mystery, and will keep you on the edge of your seat. I almost forget that I am watching an animated film, and several times I get lost in the moment and think it’s real life. I like Snowy, Tintin’s dog, because he is very loyal and will go anywhere with Master.
The fearless reporter, Tintin (voiced by Jamie Bell), and Captain Haddock (voiced by Andy Serkis) set off on an adventure, hunting for a sunken ship, the Unicorn, which had been commanded by Haddock’s ancestor. Trying to find three scrolls, which contain clues to where the treasure is hidden, Tintin and his new friend, the Captain, become closer and closer friends as they get deeper and deeper into their adventure.

Steven Spielberg (War Horse) directs this outstanding film and reminds me there is a little kid in all of us. This film sends a great message that sometimes you just need someone to rely on when going through your own adventure. BriannaBeaton.jpg

I recommend this film for ages 8 to 13. And because of all the suspense and tons of action it has, I give this film 5 out of 5 stars.

The Adventures of Tintin is truly a great treasure and a must-see, so get your copy on DVD or Blu-ray and enjoy the adventure!
