I loved the movie. It was a fun, fast paced, rollicking adventure, and thankfully it stayed true to the source material. It was full of excitement, though I preferred the early scenes when there was a little more danger and suspense. Itâ€™s undoubtedly the best use of motion capture to date, through itâ€™s still 100% perfect. I liked that elements of the actors were visible in the character models and their mannerisms.
-Opening credits were amazing, reminding me of Casino Royale and Catch me if You Can.
-Casting was excellent and all were well suited to their roles.
-Snowy was adorable.
-Herge cameo <3
-Fanservice, such as the newspaper articles framed on Tintinâ€™s walls, were appreciated.
-Mo-cap and animation-style inconsistencies; such as the difference between the characters in terms of realism/caricature balance (e.g. the realism of the hands compared to faces, or Snowy compared the rottweiler)
-Bianca Castafioreâ€™s model looked weird. She had double chin, but wasnâ€™t big enough in the bodyâ€¦
-Haddock was a little too campy in his mannerisms at times.
-Fancy transitions, while sleek and pretty, were a tad overused. Every time there was a reflection or a glass distortion, I knew it was going to transition to a new space.
-Tintinâ€™s socks werenâ€™t whiteâ€¦ :P
Just curious, since I haven't seen any other mention of this... Did anybody notice that there was an Asterix book in Capt. Haddock's quarters?
I didn't see that... Will have my eyes peeled for it when the DVD comes out...
