When this came out the kids had little interest in seeing it. We watched it today and, wow! we all loved it. As soon as it was over my 10 year old asked when the next one was coming out. As someone else had said, I know nothing about TinTin or the characters so I can't comment if this film should be considered blasphemy or not, but we watched 100 minutes of action and excitement and beautiful animation - the scene transitions, the weaving between storytelling and 'reality', etc. And has been mentioned before, the one-shot sequence later in the film was fantastic. I think I'll be adding this one to my collection.
