Storyline

The first movie based on Hergé's character Tintin begins when Temistocle Paparanic, an old friend of Captain Haddock, dies and he inherits Paparanic's ship, "La Toison d'or" or "The Golden Fleece". Tintin and Haddock travel to Istanbul to collect it, only to find that its a worthless-looking wreck. However, soon a certain Anton Karabine offers him 600,000 pounds for it. When Haddock refuses to sell, he's nearly killed. After a while, the truth comes out: Paparanic and his crew led a coup in Tetaragua, a small Latin-American country. After ruling the country for three years, Paparanic left with the gold of the National Bank, and now his old shipmates are to trying get hold of it. Written by Jonathan D. H. Parshall <parshall@citcom.net>

An original live action movie based on the classic comic books.
28 September 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

If it wasn't for my dad I would not have known that this Tintin movie actually exists. Ignoring the more recent Spielburg offering, the only Tintin movie that I knew of was Tintin and the Lake of Sharks (which I have not seen in a very long time) so when I discovered that this one existed I decided to see what it was like. I enjoyed it but unfortunately the brilliance of the Herge albums does not seem to come across all that well, despite this being written during the later part of the series.

Captain Haddock receives a letter advising him of the death of a former comrade and that all of the possessions of this comrade, which consists of a boat, is given to Haddock. However the catch is that Haddock must make the final delivery, so the Captain and Tintin travel to Istanbul to pick up the ship and deliver the cargo of rugs to Athens. However, as can be expected, when they arrive, very substantial offers are made to them for the boat, and suspecting a mystery is afoot, Tintin decides that he wants to investigate further.

This is a live action movie and as a movie they actually did very well in creating the characters. In fact each of the characters appear so similar to the actual comic book characters it is amazing. The Asterix movie that I saw came nowhere near to making the characters appear as they do in the comics. Unfortunately though, which the Captain's rather colourful language seems to work really well in the comics, it just never seemed to work all that well on the screen. I can't quite remember the more recent movie, but this movie, and the cartoon series, the language always seems to be forced and unnatural, and I suspect that is because the language is so unusual that it makes it very difficult for an actor to replicate it.

The other thing that I enjoyed about this movie is the fact that it was set in Greece. I never really realised how visiting a country or a city actually changes our perception of the city when we then see it on the screen. All of the sudden, when we see places that we know and have visited we can visualise it so much better. Okay, I didn't get to go to Metanoia (a collection of monasteries sitting atop rocky pinnacles) and the Pireaus seemed a little unrecognisable, but then again this was made fifty years ago. Also, I did notice that the roads in Athens were nowhere near as chaotic as they are today.

There were parts of this movie that reminded me of other aspects of the comics, such as when he was on a tour of Istanbul only to find himself imprisoned in a tower, and also where people are attempting to buy the boat off of him for ridiculous amounts of money, however, other than that, this was an enjoyable movie, but nowhere near as great as the comics were.
