The movie is nice, the books are better.
5 March 2001 | by (Tilburg, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Tintin et le rac aux requins' is not based on one of the books of Herge. Greg (also a maker of comics) wrote the story for this film. He didn't do a really bad job, but there are no surprises or (very) funny scenes in the scenario. It is a simple film about Tintin going on adventure with his dog Bobbie and Haddock, the captain. On the way to the prof. (called Tournesol in the original French version) they meet the two stupid detectives (called Dupont et Dupond in the original French version). The prof. has invented something and Tintin and Haddock (this is their real French name) have to protect it from Rastapopoulos, a bad villain who is never scary or something that would make him a real villain.

There are no surprises, jokes or something else this film could and should be remembered for. And the worst of all: Greg came up with two annoying kids who are trying to help Tintin in his 'quest' to beat Rastapopoulos.

If you really want to enjoy yourself: read the books of Tintin made by Herge, because they ARE funny, full of surprises and they DO have things one could and should remember!!!
