Fairly basic kids' cartoon with the visual design and look of the books
17 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Falling asleep during a long and boring game of chess with Captain Haddock, Tintin has a dream where his friend Chan is lost on a mountain and crying for help. Haddock dismisses it as just a dream but the next day they read in the paper that Chan's flight has crashed in the Himalayas. The chances of anyone surviving is slim but Tintin is convinced and sets out to locate Chan. Reaching the crash site itself is dangerous but they are rewarded with signs that Chan did at least survive the crash but it appears the mountains hold more danger than just the weather and conditions.

The Tintin books were a big part of my childhood and recently I had been reminded of this by the documentary "Tintin et Moi" and my girlfriend returning from Belgium with goodies from the Tintin shop in Brussels. So when BBC4 screened these two episodes as a standalone hour I tuned in for the hell of it. What I found was a fairly good children's cartoon that stuck closely to the book. The good side of this is that it is familiar and therefore taps into a ready made audience to a point. The problem is that this "point" isn't that far for reasons beyond this.

Visually it is identical to the book and is easy to get into but the pacing is all over the place with the story essentially being broken down into a very short series of actions that generally move things forward but often can be just Haddock falling over etc. The voice work isn't that much either. O'Meara's Tintin is reasonably good as he captures the basic boyish requirement, although I would have liked him to have a bit more character. Fox's Haddock lacks the gravitas or character to make "ahoy landlubber" work as a line. Robson was only in it briefly but he is a solid professor. The support cast are mostly rubbish here, with bad accents and lifeless voice work from all the "Tibetan" characters – so poor I could not even be bothered to check the credits for their names to put in this review.

Overall then a fairly basic children's cartoon. The story and the visual delivery keep the feel of the books to help appeal to adult fans but the pacing of the story is more for children and the voice work here is so poor at times that you wonder where the love for the subject was when they were dubbing it.
