Storyline

Having bought a model ship, the Unicorn, for a pound off a market stall Tintin is initially puzzled that the sinister Mr. Sakharine should be so eager to buy it from him, resorting to murder and kidnapping Tintin - accompanied by his marvellous dog Snowy - to join him and his gang as they sail to Morocco on an old cargo ship. Sakharine has bribed the crew to revolt against the ship's master, drunken Captain Haddock, but Tintin, Snowy and Haddock escape, arriving in Morocco at the court of a sheikh, who also has a model of the Unicorn. Haddock tells Tintin that over three hundred years earlier his ancestor Sir Francis Haddock was forced to scuttle the original Unicorn when attacked by a piratical forebear of Sakharine but he managed to save his treasure and provide clues to its location in three separate scrolls, all of which were secreted in models of the Unicorn.

Trivia

The framed newspapers on the walls of Tintin's apartment feature headlines and photos that recall his other adventures. The headline "Tintin Breaks Up Crime Ring," with a picture of several Egyptian mummy cases, refers to 'Cigars of the Pharaoh' and the headline "Tintin Recovers Valuable Sceptre" refers to 'King Ottokar's Sceptre'. The headline "Tintin retrieves national artifact" refers to "The Broken Ear". "Tintin finds Fang Hsi-ying" to "The blue Lotus". "Forgers found on mystery isle" to "The Black Island". "Reporter Tintin unmasks tribe of gangsters" to "Tintin in the Congo". See more »

Goofs

At several points during the film, characters talk about "INTERPOL". While the organization that we now commonly know as INTERPOL first came about in 1923, well before the time of the film, it did not take the name "INTERPOL" until 1956. Prior to that it was the International Criminal Police Organization or ICPO. "INTERPOL" was its telegraphic address and where it got its current name from. See more »

Brilliant film, even better in 3D...
30 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As you may know Tin Tin is a very old character and there has been books and TV programs made about his great adventures by his inventor Hergé. This new film has been voted the best animated film and once you've seen this film you'll know why. The film is well paced out and there's never a dull moment in this film. The 3D in this film is spectacular and it's well worth seeing this film in 3D if you can. The film is around 1 hour 47 minutes long and in this time Steven Spielberg manages to squash in a good few adventures into one in this film. This makes it much more exciting and you really get to know how Tin Tin and Captain Haddock were in the old days. As a projectionist, I've seen this film about 6 times now and I still don't get bored watching it. Absolutely brilliant film, I really recommend going to see this film as soon as you can. Hope the review helps your thoughts on the film. Thanks for reading, I'll be making more reviews on the films that I see at my cinema so you can get the latest thoughts from me on the films. Thanks again BPH projectionist
