Just watched " The Adventures of Tintin : The Secrets of the Unicorn

Directed by Steven Spielberg 

Voiced by Jamie Bell, Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost

Synopsis :
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. Tintin and Sakharine have one...

Well, because it's directed by Steven Spielberg, many people tend to have expected more from this film.

But for me, all in all, it was a good movie. :)

The plot & storyline was quite good.
Animation was very good because it was motion-captured animation. (like how they did for "Avatar", "Mars Needs Mums" and a few other films)

In my opinion, it was a good movie. Worth watching it. :)
If you're planning to watch it, I suggest it to be in 3D. ( you can feel the effect at certain scenes) 

My Rating?

Plot : 3.5/5
Storyline : 3.5/5
Animation** : 5/5 
Score** : 4/5
OVERALL : 7.75/10.*
