A classic movie that hasn't aged very well
24 November 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

PLEASE NOTE THAT I'VE ONLY SEEN THE Swedish DUB OF THIS MOVIE.

My mom watched and read Tintin stories all the time when she was a child, and this was her favorite of all the movies. However, when I look back to the good movie that she showed me when I was little, it just doesn't hold up too well anymore.

The whole film is drawn in the true style of Hergé (the creator of Tintin), which is, colorful and detailed, but at the same time simple. This is one of the two only things that I still love about this movie, since it gives you that good ol' Tintin feeling, unlike some of the newer movies that doesn't have the same characteristic style as this one.

The other thing I like about this film, and I know that I'm not alone, is Captain Haddock. He always makes me laugh, and his voice is just one of the best to ever make it to the cinema. In Swedish he doesn't sound at all like Popeye, but rather like a more classic gruff and hoarse captain.

The sound effects are really awkward, especially the sounds of the explosions, but that just adds a little more to the comedic values of the film.

So basically, in order to like this film you have to like Tintin. It is certainly not the best movie out there, and not a good way to start your future interest to the films and comics. But most importantly: Don't take it seriously. It wasn't made for that reason.

But if you like Tintin and has grown up with it you will probably like this film, if you can come over some of the cheesy jokes (one of which is literally cheesy!) and the fact that this movie is almost 40 years old.
