The Adventures Of Tintin:The Secret Of The Unicorn(2011)

Story:Adapted from the comic, The Adventures Of Tintin by Hergé of the same name compiling three titles, The Crab With The Golden Claws, The Secret Of The Unicorn, and The Red Rackham's Treasure.
Review: I am totally looking forward to this movie but I am also having my reservations on how loyal the movie can be to the comic series but it turned out well. The combination of the three titles for the movie adaptation was a good idea which was way better than what was done in Lemony Snickett's A Series Of Unfortunate Events. It was as if the combination didn't happened. It was different from the original story but the movie story pulled off just as good.
It was perfectly done in computer animation by Weta Digital, the same people who did James Cameron's Avatar and the remake of King Kong and of course, Lord Of The Rings Trilogy.. To make the computer animation flawlessly real, they also placed wires on the voice actors' faces just like what they did with Andy Serkis previously as Gollum and King Kong to copy those expressions while delivering their lines.The animation also removed the trademark eyes of the original comics with realistic eyes but didn't alter what the characters look like and was detailed from the looks, clothes,etc.The Adventures Of Tintin is based on the comic series of the same name by Hergé in the early 20th Century. It was also adapted in animation years later with the same drawing style. Tintin is originally a Belgian character same as the creator. Although this is not the first Tintin adventure in the comics, the Unicorn storyline was the best selection for the movie because it had lots of action and adventure.Jamie Bell who played for the title role of Tintin did a splendid job that it was remarkably similar to the cartoons. Also stars Andy Serkis as Haddock and Daniel Craig as Sackharine.

Advance screening was held at IMAX SM City North EDSA
