Storyline

After the arrest of most of the members of the drug syndicate, the leader behind the organization was never found and is still at large. Tintin, who is enjoying his stay at the palace of the Maharaja, is visited by a Chinese gentleman who brings Tintin a message. However, a poison dart containing the madness poison was struck right into the massager's neck by an unseen marksman. The only clues Tintin received from the now mad messenger is that there's trouble in Shanghai and a man named Mitsuhirato, which is the place where the remaining members of the syndicate remain. So Tintin heads for Shanghai to meet Mitsuhirato, however upon meeting the person Tintin was almost assassinated twice upon his visit in Shanghai. He ends up being saved by a young Chinese man who provides him with a disguise in order for him to not be easily recognized by the syndicate. Who is the mysterious young man who prevented Tintin's death and can Mitsuhirato be trusted? Written by J LeGault

Exotic eastern adventures, and a touch of racism
3 December 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

THE BLUE LOTUS is another two-part adventure for Tintin, supported by Snowy and the Thompson Twins in a small cameo. This one sees Tintin travelling further east than normal, when his visit with some old buddies in India is cut short by a plea for help from China. Tintin goes to visit a distinguished Japanese gentleman but his trip is interrupted by repeated attempts on his life.

Any fan of Tintin will know well what to expect from this story: lots of globe-trotting, action, and near-death experiences. The tale is told so quickly that it barely catches breath and it's very easy to get caught up in the exotic professionalism of the piece. THE BLUE LOTUS has a vicious edge in places and I was surprised to see the extraordinarily racist depiction of the Japanese guy; funny how the Congo and Soviet stories weren't filmed due to racism concerns but it's fine to be racist to Asians.
