Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock fly to Syldavia to see Professor Calculus who is staying on a villa on the shores of a mysterious lake. The professor has been secretly working on a strange machine which produces 3D illusions, but then Tintin unmasks a spy in the villa. Who is interested in the professor's invention? Tintin is hot on the trail when he is captured and taken to the mastermind of the lake of sharks - none other than his old enemy, Rastapopoulos. And this time 'King Shark' has plans to get rid of Tintin for good...

That's what my book says, anyway! :-)

I think the book should be marked "for collectors/avid fans only". It's pretty sub-standard.

There's nothing standard about Lake of Sharks at all, but 'sub' decribes it well. lol

Awww! Don't be so harsh to the poor thing - I quite enjoy Lake of Sharks: I don't think it is anywhere as good as the best of the originals, but it doesn't compare too badly to the least of the canon. I'm not keen on Rastapopoulos as a villain at the best of times, so his inclusion in this is a bit of a bore, but other than that I like the submerged village sequences and the return of Calculus's sub, and the duplicating/ forgery plot is fair.

'Tintin and the lake of sharks' is a 1 hour 15 min film. I've got the film on VHS, I don't think you can get it from the shops but there is a book of it published by EGMONT. On the first page it says 'A Tintin film book Tintin and the lake of sharks. Based on the characters by HERGE. And by the way, its a good film.

I'd hate to see what other movies you would define as 'good' then. lol

Well, I am the only person I know who laughed at Weekend at Bernie's, so you may have a point...

OK. Fair comment. I do like the scene with the replicating paste...
However, Jock, my experience has been forever blighted. My original copy suffered a rather inglorious fate involving an eight year old boy, a car journey, and the subsequent consequences of trying to read whilst on a very windy road...

My mother did the best she could to clean it up :-(

Ah, the childhood trauma angle!
Look on it this way, you will have a deep anecdote for your autobiography when you write it!

I have seen it, but I don´t remember it well.Tell me, please, is there a scene in the movie that is not like Herge´s style?

If the film was not created by Hergé, could the animation & story line not be tweaked or even redone?

Thoughts?
