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.

A rare Tintin movie action adaptation
5 September 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

A rare adaptation of the most famous reporter comics. a collector! This film respects the spirit of the comics and the time.

Tintin and the Mystery of the Golden Fleece does not appear to have been the subject of a restoration (at least on the television version that I have viewed August 2010). That's why we could see the film grain of the era that is still properly maintained. This may delight lovers and nostalgic film.

Proper distribution is an unforgettable experience Tintin, Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, Thomson and Thompson ... and Snowy.

The realization is very correct and respects the spirit, tone and pace of the comic.

A good adaptation of the comic books and even a very good compared to the various adaptations that have been made in recent years that show overwhelmingly disappointing. We forget the original work for a film format ensuring a minimum of risk for financiers, so that the original work is often already very good. (Otherwise we would not an adaptation)

Watch it, such a good time with family.
