Original plot inspired on the popular and famous comic books by the genius Herge
14 May 2011 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This time our friends go to Sildavia where takes place several adventures . The picture will appeal to the fans of the popular animated hero named Tintin and his faithful sidekicks as well as the comic-books nostalgics. As Tintin and captain Haddock along with the Dupont brothers travel in a Balkan country to find professor Tornasol who has invented a machine that can duplicate anything .The professor is residing in a location near a lake plenty of sharks and next the border of Syldavia( Tintin and the scepter of Ottokar) and Bodouria but a criminal master mind named Rastapopoulous (Cigarrettes of pharaoh) attempts to force professor Tornasol to give up the machine by abducting two local children who live nearby , in order to get by all means the magical artifact .

This is a nice adventure with hilarious moments here and there, and has Tintin and his inseparable friends captain Haddock , absent-minded professor Tornasol , the botcher Dupont brothers taking on , as always, against stupid enemies , this time Rastapopoulos ,the ruthless and infamous international delinquent . This cartoon movie of the popular "Tintin" comic-book magazine brilliantly captures the outrageous adventures, tongue in cheek, satire, comedy ,taking the characters and some elements from original stories , such as the shark-submarine (Treasure of Rackam the Red) and the Rastapopoulos's underwater amphibious. Although contains a primitive drawing , however being better developed than former entry ¨Tintin and the temple of the sun¨ , both of them produced by Raymond Leblanc . This amusing movie is accompanied by lively musical score with a catching leitmotif on the start and the ending. Full of humor , it's a funny entertaining for kids and grown-ups . The entertaining screenplay isn't based on the known comics by Herge but originally written by Michel Greg author of Achille Talon (1977 ,TV series and comics ) , 1981 L'Agence Labricole (TV series (screenplay) and 1970 Tintín in the temple del sol (dialogue). This cartoon movie is professionally directed by Raymond Leblanc . He was a Belgian publisher who started the weekly magazine in 1946 with the participation of Georges Rémi ("Hergé") . Under Leblanc's guidance, the boy reporter became the hero of a weekly children's magazine, with Hergé as the artistic director and magnificent creator of the immortal personage . Later on ,Leblanc produced the following films: Iznogoud ,1978 Gulliver's Travels ,1972 Lucky Luke el intrepid ,1970 Tintín in the temple of the sun ,1968 Astérix y Cleopatra and 1967 Astérix the Gaul. The picture will appeal to Tintin comic-books buffs. An agreeable , funny adaptation from a great comic book.
