Such a great endeavor made by contemporary movie legends should not go unnoticed, and The Adventures of Tintin is exactly what is needed for a great family movie night. This movie was a collaboration of Wingnut and Amblin, produced by Peter Jackson and directed by Steven Spielberg, and with such epic backing, you know you can’t go wrong. This film is based on the series of adventure stories by Hergé, set in Post WWI Europe, but Tintin’s tales take us all over the world.
This particular story focuses on the young freelance investigative reporter’s discovery of a model of a sailing ship he bought in the local market. Being a bright young man, Tintin (Jamie Bell) is knowledgeable about history, he buys the model from a vendor for a pound, but finds this ship to be far more valuable, as there are people out there willing to steal, lie, cheat and kill for it. Two men ask to buy it from him, first an American detective, then, a Mr. Sakharine (Daniel Craig), whom is most adamant about having it. This is a model of the galleon, The Unicorn, a merchant vessel from the 17th century, that was commonly used to transport rum and tobacco from the New World, but there is more to it than being just a model.
