The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is a breathless adventure of dazzling effects and uninhibited action sequences.
Director Steven Spielberg’s
imagination runs wild with visual freedom and the limitless capabilities of
performance capture technology. However, Tintin is a world famous investigative
journalist, who does very little investigating. Herge’s infamous Belgian

of the Unicorn. The clues are merely plot points that move the story from one
location to another for the next big action sequence.
The film does feature some
