Storyline

When seven archaeologists find an old Inca temple, they become the victims of an old Inca curse. Back in Europe, one by one they fall into a deep sleep and only once a day, all at the same time, they wake up for some minutes and have hallucinations of the Inca god. The story begins with the 6th archaeologist being put into sleep by the contents of a crystal ball that are thrown into his car by Indios. The last conscious archaeologist stays at Tintin and Haddock in Moulinsart. A thunderstorm approaches and the lights go out. This is used by the Indios to put the last one in sleep and to capture professor Tournesol, who has proved to be a desecrater of the sanctuary by putting on the bracelet of the Inca god. His friends Tintin and Haddock follow the track to Peru, up to the mountains through snow and jungle and finally discover the temple of the sun wheres they are captured, too. Their only choice is to chose the day on which they want to be burned to death by the sun. Tintin chooses ... Written by Michael Zink and Jens Müller

great movie!
30 March 2011 | by andrewjaulewraedSee all my reviews

this in my opinion is better than the cheesy low budget TV adaption in fact it's way better it has a great music score by Francois rauber in fact in my opinion it's one of the greatest film scores of all time good animation no stock sound effects (except the police siren)and great voice acting (zorrino's voice is a little girlie but who cares)and overall a great movie it is a little rushed but it's way better than the cheesy TV adaption and if you don't agree then you're dumb how could you choose the lame anti climactic ending of the "better" adaption over a great movie like this? anyway it's a great movie infinity stars out of infinity
