Storyline

When seven archaeologists find an old Inca temple, they become the victims of an old Inca curse. Back in Europe, one by one they fall into a deep sleep and only once a day, all at the same time, they wake up for some minutes and have hallucinations of the Inca god. The story begins with the 6th archaeologist being put into sleep by the contents of a crystal ball that are thrown into his car by Indios. The last conscious archaeologist stays at Tintin and Haddock in Moulinsart. A thunderstorm approaches and the lights go out. This is used by the Indios to put the last one in sleep and to capture professor Tournesol, who has proved to be a desecrater of the sanctuary by putting on the bracelet of the Inca god. His friends Tintin and Haddock follow the track to Peru, up to the mountains through snow and jungle and finally discover the temple of the sun wheres they are captured, too. Their only choice is to chose the day on which they want to be burned to death by the sun. Tintin chooses ... Written by Michael Zink and Jens Müller

Nice rendition of a cool comic
10 January 2001 | by (Den Haag, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I have been a fan of Herge's comic strip albums concerning TinTin (Kuifje in the Netherlands). So I was pleased to view this feature length animated movie based on one of his better stories (not the best, I might add). Although an animated series has been created for Tv based on the works of TinTin, this was surely a treat to watch.

The animation might not be top-notch as just might find with Disney or Bluth, but it surely was watchable. The story contains typical TinTin detective work, which includes obviously trying to catch the bad-guys and solving some mystery somewhere in the world, this time it is South-America concerning an Old Inca sect.

The humour can only be appreciated if you are a fan of the comic albums, because it can be quite lame at times, but who cares, this is TinTin. Thompson and Thompson are as ludicrous as ever and Captain Haddock is as hilarious as ever as TinTin's permanent sidekick. Snowy (Bobbie in NL) is as loyal as ever.

A must-see for fans of TinTin.
