Director: Steven Spielberg
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Rated: PG (For adventure action violence, some drunkenness and brief smoking)
In making “The Adventures of Tintin” I suspect Steven Spielberg reached way back in his childhood memory and brought up the excitement he felt as a child when he watched weekly serials at the movies. Indeed, weekly movie serials were what fueled him to direct the Indiana Jones movies. It must help that Tintin was a weekly comic strip that contained the flair and excitement of those old weekly serials and now he's taken that feeling and made it with cutting edge animation for families of a new generation. The irony in this is that most children today have never seen a weekly serial or know who Tintin even is…chances are their parents haven't heard of Tintin either.
Parents, there is a lot of action adventure violence, none of it menacing until the final scene. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
