Tintin tackles America's crime kingpins.
23 March 2007 | by (the Mad Hatter's tea party.) – See all my reviews

The highly regarded young newspaper reporter Tintin heads to America, Chicago to write a story on how the underworld crime figures run the city. When they hear that he's coming, they plan some devilish surprises to stop him in his tracks, but Tintin won't let anything come between him and good story.

Belgian writer and illustrator Herge's "Tintin In America" is one of his earlier comic book adventures and this cartoon mostly stays true to its sources. ALthough there's some stuff missing which was included in the comic strip. Mainly those periods involving the unfair plight towards the native Indians. What translates on this cartoon feature is an richly coloured and naturally spirited foray, which never lets up on the excitement. These are how cartoons should be made and this one stills stands up well today. The concept for this episode throws around tight and thrilling situations (basically one after another in an convincing fashion) of Tintin dodging the traps set out for him with his usual disguises. This is done in a astutely laid out structure with some welcoming humour added in. The script is resourcefully engaging, and sprucely told. Tintin makes for an superbly idol hero, with intelligence and energy to come up with the goods. His fellow crime counterparts for this occasion, are some lively and fun mobsters. While, it might not be one of the best. It's definitely one the more exciting entries, as it totally draws you into the strip from the get-go.
