The first name there is instantly recognizable. The second may be (he directed Lord of the Rings and is helping the upcoming prequels, The Hobbit). Serkis played Gollum. So far, this is a powerful and understandably self important group.
The second set of names (out of which Pegg is most known) is the group of minds behind Shaun if the Dead and Hot Fuzz.
All of these folks are part of Tintin as director (Speilberg), producer (Jackson), writer (Wright), and actors (Serkis, Frost, Pegg). And what a movie!
Tintin is based off the rather popular serial comic that became collections of graphic novels. And this movie has a lot to live up to. And it does. Proper cameos, great adaptation, and a smartly written plot add up to a great movie. Or it should.
Tintin is very popular and the movie did amazingly! But only in Europe. In America, it’s a different story. Some of us happened upon it when our military families ended up overseas. Others discovered it during the mid 00′s, when graphic novels became the thing to read. And this is why my review isn’t glowing. It’s great, if you know the source material. Otherwise, the characters are not relatable and Tintin is annoying.
6/10 cooligans for those new to the series. 9/10 cooligans for those familiar with the source material.
