When certain films are released, mostly those of kid-centric variety, critics tend to forget that they’re not necessarily the film’s target audience. So, we here at CinemaNerdz decided we needed the critical viewpoint of a true member of the movie’s intended demographic. Thus, we turn the reins over to Miranda Clarke, age 9, as she shares with us her views on the new film “The Adventures of Tintin.”
I did not love this movie, but it was okay. The Adventures of Tintin is a boring movie. I felt like I had seen the same story before, just with different characters trying to find something else. This movie is about a boy named Tintin who bought a model ship. Then his model ship got stolen and he looks for clues with his dog Snowy, who is always helping him out. They get into a crazy adventure because of this guy who knows that the model ship holds a secret. The movie was adventurous, but uninteresting. One of the only parts I liked was the ending because it ended with another mystery. I also liked the ending because the movie was finally over.
I also liked the 3D effects. They were very good because the movie has lots of action. The 3D effects went throughout the whole movie. The 3D effects made me feel like I was in the movie. I think the 3D in this movie was the best I have seen so far.
I really liked Tintin’s dog Snowy who was very good at being cute. Snowy always helps Tintin out with every crazy thing he tackles. Snowy wants to get the enemies to help Tintin. Snowy is very good at finding clues and helps Tintin out a lot in the movie. Tintin cares about Snowy and Snowy cares about Tintin. The Tintin character is kind of annoying because he takes so long to do a simple thing. Like when Tintin was just staring at a clue for two minutes. He always wants to try to solve the case. Tintin irritates me because he is kind of boring and talks way too much.
The Adventures of Tintin was a very slow movie because everyone took so much time to accomplish simple things. For example, the police officers, Thompson and Thompson, fell trying to catch the pickpocket and took a long time to just get up. Also, the chase scenes went on too long. I think they are going to make another movie because this movie ends with another mystery. However, I do not think they should make another one.
